U Street: DC's Top Spot for Nightlife

Historically, the U Street Corridor/Cardozo neighborhood, most commonly referred to simply as U Street, was DC's music capital — where Washingtonians came to listen to jazz and blues. While a little of that scene remains, U Street has reinvented itself as one of DC's premier night spots, with an endless array of bars, clubs, and restaurants.

While the residents of U Street are diverse, they share two things in common: First, they like to be near the hustle and bustle of U Street's vibrant nightlife. There is no lack of excitement and variety. It has a 99 walk score, after all. Second, they don't mind the hustle and bustle of U Street's nightlife.
