Columbia Heights / Mount Pleasant / Petworth

Just north of Adams Morgan and U Street are the gentrifying/gentrified neighborhoods of Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, Petworth, and Park View. Lots of neighborhood spots have opened up in the past few years, with lots of great affordable bars tucked away in the more residential part of DC. Well worth the visit to check out some off-the-radar watering holes.
