H Street NE, a dynamic one-and-a-half mile stretch in Northeast DC, is known for its nightlife, restaurants, pop-ups, festivals and communal atmosphere. Art lovers flock to The Atlas Performing Arts Center, home to a variety of performances, events and initiatives spanning a range of artistic traditions. The Atlas bills itself as “where the arts, culture and connection happen on H Street.” The neighborhood’s largest event is the annual H Street Festival, which spans 10 blocks and attracts roughly thousands of patrons. Highlights of the fall event include musical performances and multi-cultural entertainment, in addition to art exhibits, for-sale crafts and an array of offerings from local food trucks and restaurants.
Another must-see: the seasonal H Street Farmers’ Market, open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from mid-April to mid-December at 800 13th Street NE. Visitors will find the best of local, seasonal bounty, including handmade cow milk cheeses, fruits, vegetables, pastries and flowers.

Local chef Erik Bruner-Yang first attracted foodies to H Street with Toki Underground, which serves up hearty bowls of ramen and dumplings. While no longer with Toki Underground, diners can find Bruner-Yang further down the street at Maketto, a dining-retail-coffee shop triumvirate featuring Taiwanese fare, as well as Cambodian dishes. Nearby, Le Grenier serves up French fare in an industrial-chic setting and Ben’s Chili Bowl delights visitors with its half-smokes.
