1200 Block of H Street NE is DC’s Favorite Block to Drink On

1200 Block of H St. NE

After a series of Twitter polls stretching over a week, the 1200 Block of H Street NE (between 12th and 13th) has been crowned DC’s favorite block to drink on. In a poll open for 3 days, the 1200 block avenged its first round loss to the 1300 block (which was previously undefeated in 3 poll rounds) to eek out a 53%-47% victory. This is despite fact that nearly half the block is occupied by an AutoZone and its parking lot. Bars/spots to drink include: Nomad Hookah, The Queen Vic, Dynamix Lounge, Sticky Rice (and the SingSing Karaoke Palace), Toki Underground (though hard to drop in and get a drink), The Pug, Granville Moore’s, On the Rocks (all on north side of street, west to east); and in southeast corner, Smith Commons and Sol (upstairs cantina to reopen in spring).

Other popular drinking blocks:

  • 1200 H (Sospeso, RedRocks, Impala, Biergarten Haus, Rock N Roll Hotel, Star and Shamrock, Hill Prince, Pie Shop, H Street Country Club)
  • 1200 9th/Blagden (favorite in Shaw) (Calico, Tiger Fork, Columbia Room, Lost & Found, Espita, The Dabney Cellar)
  • 3700 14th St NW (favorite in Columbia Heights/Petworth area) (Lyman’s Tavern, Red Derby, Mezcalero)
  • 900 U St NW (favorite on U Street) (The Brixton, Dirty Goose, El Rey, Velvet Lounge, Dodge City, Nellie’s, Service Bar)
  • 1800 14th St NW (favorite in Logan Circle) (Destination Wedding, Garden District, Black Cat, Masa 14, El Centro DF, Bar Pilar, St. Ex)
  • 2400 18th St. NW (favorite in Adam Morgan) (Songbyrd, Smoke & Barrel, Grand Central, Mellow Mushroom, Shenanigans)
  • 3600 Georgia Ave. NW (Reliable Tavern, DC Reynolds, The Looking Glass Lounge)
