Dupont Circle

One of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city (and where Barred in DC set up shop from 2006-2015), the expansive Dupont Circle hood contains a diversity of mini-areas and bar scenes: the bridge/tunnel crowd who frequent the Midtown “Club Central” area centered around 18th & M, the original gay strip of 17th Street, the chill, relaxed spots on the western side, or the solid mix of mostly chill bars north of the Circle which draw an older crowd.
