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!
Transit in the Chinatown Area
As mentioned earlier, the immediate presence of the downstairs Chinatown/Gallery Place Metro is an enormous convenience for residents as well as others in the neighborhood. But should you be searching for other Metro stations in the immediate area: Metro Center, Judiciary Square and Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter are all within walking distance.
The Chinatown neighborhood is also adjacent the convergence of Massachusetts Avenue and New York Avenue for those who feel like driving rather than using mass transit. It’s also worth noting that the Downtown-Penn Quarter-Chinatown area reigns supreme when it comes to Walk Score, with a rating of 97 for walk, 100 for transit and 90 for bikes.
Whether you’re walking, driving, biking, skateboarding or riding an electric scooter, this is a great neighborhood to visit and an even better one to live in!
