A few of my personal favs include:

 

Amazing sky bar view and feel

My first boyfriend and I would go here at least weekly. Sometimes more. Family!

BEN’S CHILI BOWL

Insider Tip: The crabcakes are to die for and you never know when you’ll catch your fav celebrity tucked away in the backroom 😉

BEN’S NEXT DOOR

Man, when the OLD H St. Corridor was a cultural rough patch, we’d still brave the terrain and hop on the H2 for a fried fish sandwich

HORACE AND DICKIES

6912 4th St NW, Washington, DC 20012

The best jerk wings on U St. and they’re not even a caribbean spot. They also host the best open mic nights in the city– before it became a “thing.”

INDULJ RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE

1208 U St NW, Washington, DC 20009

Karaoke night and $5 Tequila Tuesday upstairs. If that’s not enough, downstairs always plays the best Hip-Hop

LOUNGE OF THREE

1013 U St NW, Washington, DC 20001

Chef O got that work on the soul food tip. Yes, Lawd!

OOHH’S & AAHH’S

1005 U St NW, Washington, DC 20001

Great chicken wings, but the scene can quickly shift to the older side on the wrong night. Gotta know which nights they have shows and who’s performing, but regardless it’s always a good time!

TAKOMA STATION

6914 4th St NW, Washington, DC 20012

While I love Indulj and appreciate the start they gave me in event planning, I’m not sure they’re still open for business. Sad to see them go if they are in fact closed.
