H Street

Since The Argonaut (now-shuttered) opened on the far east side of H Street NE back in August 2005, H Street has been one the hottest new bar destinations in DC for many years, though 14th Street and Shaw are pretty ridiculous now.  Forever a long hike from the Union Station Metro stop, the long-awaited DC Streetcar finally opened in February 2016 and is free (comes every 12-15 minutes or so), though the X2 bus is still available and great for the stories,.
