Chinatown is one of DC’s most celebrated neighborhoods with a lengthy evolving history. From its original origins, it has transformed into a dining and entertainment mecca with so many bars and restaurants that it’s not really fair to single any out. There’s also Capital One Arena with its Washington Wizards NBA basketball, the National Portrait Gallery and the National Building Museum. Plus DC’s corridors of power are close by, from the Capitol Building to the White House.

Chinatown and Downtown DC

Washington’s original Chinatown was located along Pennsylvania Avenue. It grew over the course of decades during the mid-to-late 1800s, and was home to thousands of Chinese immigrants. There were numerous restaurants, drugstores, laundry services, outdoor markets and more. But during the 1920s, the federal government began redeveloping the area as the Federal Triangle. Chinese residents moved a few blocks north, but many also moved out of Washington.

Today, this geographically tiny enclave is bordered by I Street to the north, 5th Street to the east, H Street to the south and 8th Street to the west. But such borders can seem amorphous when you’re actually walking or driving through the area. Modern day Chinatown is right in the heart of Downtown DC, surrounded by other popular neighborhoods including Mount Vernon and the Penn Quarter.

The giant Friendship Archway is an obvious landmark. But there are plenty of other quintessential Chinese-themed attractions, just as there are also bars, restaurants and entertainment in the area. CIRCA at Chinatown, Momiji, Vapiano, matchbox, Yard House, Jackpot and Free State are just a few of the fun places to drink and dine.

But head just a few blocks from Chinatown in literally any direction and you’ll keep arriving at more and more top eateries. To the south are hotspots like Jaleo, ChopHouse & Brewery, Dirty Habits DC, Clyde’s, SEI and Oyamel Cucina Mexicana. To the north is Farmers & Distillers, City Tap House Penn Quarter, Maison Keyser and RPM Italian. The food just keeps coming, including great pop-up cafes, local word-of-mouth joints and amazing food trucks!
