This week DC Hood Hopper is featuring the H Street NE neighborhood, also called the Atlas District (named for the historic theater at its heart). The street itself runs East-West beginning at Benning Rd. NE until North Capitol St., near Union Station.
Dubbed an “Arts and Entertainment District,” H Street is home to a lively assortment of bars, restaurants, and arts and music venues including the Atlas Performing Arts Center, the H Street Playhouse, and HR-57 jazz club. The neighborhood also hosts an annual street festival, which is coming up in September.
