Overview of H Street NE Neighborhood

Discover a variety of experiences on this 10-block corridor

Restaurants, events, shops, bars, the arts-- there’s something for everyone on H Street. While the neighborhood might have originally been known for its nightlife, there’s now a plethora of to-dos during the day.

Head to Micho’s Lebanese Grill to enjoy a Chicken Kabob or to Ben’s Chili Bowl for some of their famous burgers. Drop by Maketto and find a cool jacket from its first floor shop (then grab a cappuccino upstairs), pick a play to watch at The Atlas Performing Arts Center and bar hop between Boundary Road and RedRocks for great deals during happy hour.  

At night, swing over to the H Street Country Club for mini-golf, table games, Skeeball & video games. Rock and Roll Hotel hosts up-and-coming indie rock bands, while Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar offers something different every night (think: deejay-fueled dance parties, karaoke or comedy). Can’t-miss restaurants include Ethiopic, Toki Underground and Sticky Rice.

Don’t let the name deceive you. Rock & Roll Hotel isn’t actually a lodging facility, but a music venue and nightclub. Established in 2006, the venue hosts bands from around the region, country and globe. There are three floors for you to explore: the concert hall, second floor lounge and rooftop deck.
