  • Gallaudet University

    Gallaudet University

    800 Florida Ave NE
    Gallaudet is the nation's and the world's first university for the deaf, and remains the world's only university where all classes and services are tailored to the needs of the hearing-impaired. Aside from being the principal institution and center for American Sign Language, the university also comprises a National Historic District, a designation received for its several excellent examples of fanciful North American High Gothic architecture. The most famous of these is the campus' centerpiece, Chapel Hall. Tours can be arranged to be in spoken English, but only with a good amount of advance notice (they are routinely available in ASL), and are geared at information for prospective students and their families.

  • Dr. Granville Moore's

    Dr. Granville Moore's

    1238 H St NE
    Su-Th 5PM-10PM, F-Sa 5PM-11PM. $15-25 (Belgian beers $8+). The gastropub fare here is great (seafood, salads, sandwiches), but the showstopper is the Belgian mussels and fries, and even more so the 50 Belgian beers chalked in on the board. Considered the gold standard for Belgian food in a city that loves the stuff.

  • Dangerously Delicious Pies

    Dangerously Delicious Pies

    1339 H St NE
    M-Th 11AM-midnight, F 11AM-3:30AM, Sa 9AM-3:30AM, Su 9AM-10PM. By the slice: $4.50-6, whole pies: $30-35. A slice of one of their savoury pies (like the wonderful steak, mushroom, and gruyère) can be enough for dinner, really, so this qualifies as a prime cheap eats spot on H St (or an inebriated after-bar indulgence). Among the dessert pies, it would be a shame not to try the strawberry rhubarb! An import from Baltimore, Dangerously Delicious has flourished here, and is probably the best bakery for pies in the immediate D.C. metro area. Look for pies by the slice out of their food truck downtown, too.

  • Sticky Rice

    Sticky Rice

    1224 H St NE
    Su-Th 11:30AM-2AM, F 11:30AM-3AM, Sa 5PM-3AM. $8-22. A stylish sushi restaurant by day and crowded H St bar by night, the biggest draw here is the sushi. The rolls are big, inventive, and jaunty—and reasonably priced. If you are here for a couple beers, definitely order a bucket of tater tots. Tuesday nights are karaoke, while F-Sa nights see DJs.

  • Ethiopic Restaurant

    401 H St NE
    Tu-Th 5PM-10PM, F-Su noon-10PM. $14-22. While too far west to be considered part of the H St scene (it's closer to Union Station), this trendy restaurant was almost immediately hailed as D.C.'s best Ethiopian cooking on virtually all fronts. That's enormous praise in this city that is home to the second largest Ethiopian population in the world after Addis Ababa. If you are OK with raw meat, the raw kitfo is a standout entrée, especially with a little extra spicy red powder on the side. The location makes it a little hard to get to and from without a car—especially from, as it's hard to hail a taxi. The walk to Union Station isn't too far, but can be creepy in the quiet of the night.

  • Toki Underground

    Toki Underground

    1234 H St N E2nd Fl
    M-W,Su 5PM-10PM, Th 5PM-midnight, F-Sa 5PM-2AM. $10-22. Northeast's hottest and arguably hippest restaurant is a Taiwanese-style ramen house, run by (per the We Love DC blog) D.C.'s "culinary ninja," Erik Bruner-Yang. For those uninitiated, Taiwanese-style ramen differs from the Japanese-style in throwing tradition and orthodoxy out the window, and mixing the soup up with eggs, pork belly, curries, and all sorts of other options. (Both these gourmet styles differ greatly from that weird fake microwavable stuff you ate in college for 15¢ a bag by being delicious.) The inventive cocktails are a treat too, but possibly eclipsing even the incredible noodle soups are the cookies—yes the cookies—freshly baked by a friend in the neighborhood, hot and oozing gooeyness, and accompanied with a shot of milk. During peak hours it can be tough to get a seat (all of them at a counter or bar) in this tiny space. The best approach is to give the host your cell number, head out for drinks elsewhere, and he/she will text you when your turn comes up on the list.

  • The Atlas Room

    The Atlas Room

    1015 H St NE
    Tu-Th 5:30PM-10PM, F-Sa 5:30PM-10:30PM, Su 5PM-9:30PM; lounge until 1AM Tu-Th, 2AM F-Sa. $35-65. Fine dining on H St today is the Atlas Room's dominion, although now defunct restaurants have given it a shot in the past. It's creative contemporary American cuisine in a small, simple, but very attractive room (great date spot). If you just want to check the place out without the cost of the full meal, stop in for one of their well-crafted classic cocktails (it's all about the inputs) at a worth-it $11.

  • HR-57

    HR-57

    1007 H St
    Tu-Th 8PM-midnight, F-Sa 9PM-1AM. Cover: $5-10. Rightfully included in Down Beat Jazz's list of the world's 100 greatest jazz venues, HR-57 is one of both the coolest and the most eccentric venues in the city for live music. You won't find touring musicians headlining on stage here—the focus is on its jam sessions with the aim of really promoting the growth of D.C.'s local jazz scene. The popular poetry/spoken word jams take over on Tuesday nights. Covers are so low that the place struggles to stay afloat. The strange name comes from a resolution passed in the US House of Representatives declaring jazz a national treasure. It's a large space with couches and chess tables further back from the stage if you want to chat without shouting. Food is limited to a small soul food menu and lemonade, with a BYOB policy that neighborhood regulars have taken to heart.

    Biergarten Haus

    1355 H St NE
    M-F 5PM-1AM, Sa-Su 10AM-1AM. The outdoor courtyard is an enormous draw on H St, as is the great selection of German draughts served in huge mugs, meaning this is one crowded hotspot in good weather. If you can get past the bartenders to that courtyard, by all means spend the night here, but otherwise the indoor section is more than a fine spot for a pint. The food is not up to par with the rest of what is on offer, but even low quality German food will go well with some good beer and F-Sa live polka bands.

  • H Street Country Club

    1335 H St NE
    Su-Th 5PM-2AM, F-Sa 5PM-3AM. Golf: $7. H St's take on Dave & Busters is possibly aiming to steal the title of the street's most eclectic venue: upscale Mexican cuisine in the dining room via a nationally acclaimed chef, an impressive cocktail menu via a nationally acclaimed mixologist, and then an outrageous mini-golf course, along with pool tables, shuffleboard, skee-ball, etc. The golf course is a work of art, full of random Washingtonian references and inside jokes (like Marion Barry's Awakening on hole eight). It can also be extremely crowded, and best played on a weeknight or otherwise very early in the evening. Alcohol is served on the course, so it's 21+.

  • SOVA Espresso & Wine

    1359 H St NE
    M 7AM-9PM, Tu-Th 7AM-10PM, F 7AM-1AM, Sa 7:30AM-1AM, Su 8AM-8PM. SOVA fills two niches at once as the neighborhood's coffeeshop/WiFi hangout, and as the nightlife strip's wine bar in the evenings (second floor). The coffee and tea are top notch (Intelligentsia & loose leaf Rishi Teas). The wine bar/lounge, which also serves beer and cocktails, is beautiful, comfortable, and very romantic.

  • Rock and Roll Hotel

    1353 H St, NE
    Su-Th 7PM-2AM, F-Sa 7PM-3AM. Sometimes covers: $4-15. Not a hotel, rather H Street's biggest performance venue/nightclub in a former funeral home. Regardless of whether anyone's playing downstairs (indie rock or DJs), the upstairs is a pretty terrific place to hang out, shoot some pool, get some drinks, or play that piano (if you can hear yourself over the blaring rock music). The atmosphere is a fun mix of metal and Western.
