U Street

The center of D.C.’s live music scene

Once the center of African American culture, this Northwest DC neighborhood was home to Duke Ellington, social activist Mary McLeod Bethune, and poets Langston Hughes and Georgia Douglas Johnson.  Today, the creative spirit is still alive and well, with diverse cuisine by day, including iconic 1958 institution Ben’s Chili Bowl, as well as some of the best Caribbean and soul food restaurants in town.  By night, U Street is true to its roots, remaining the center of Washington’s music scene.  The U Street Corridor retains its residential status with Victorian era row houses and apartments for rent.
