Once the beating heart of African American culture in the United States, U Street is an exciting place to live in Washington, D.C. It is the birthplace of Duke Ellington, an iconic jazz musician and D.C. hero, and has an unparalleled nightlife and music scene. It is the part of D.C. that never sleeps and knows how to have a really great time. This lively part of the city is anchored on the west by the vibrant 14th Street corridor, and on the east by the Howard Theatre which borders the Shaw neighborhood. U Street is home to a towering Ellington sculpture and a multitude of DJs playing underground and aboveground, nationally and internationally acclaimed bands, and hip jazz clubs.
The food scene in the U Street neighborhood is also exciting. The best way to experience all the diverse dining options in the area is to take a Carpe DC Food Tour. You’ll find everything here, from Italian to soul food to the world-famous Ben’s Chili Bowl. U Street also encompasses “Little Ethiopia,” on its eastern end, where you’ll find homey restaurants where you can eat with your hands. For dessert check out Ice Cream Jubilee, and don’t forget to visit the Saturday Farmers’ Market at the corner of 14th and U Streets, and the area’s many cool coffee shops.
