Guide to Adams Morgan
Colorful. Eclectic. Diverse. These are all words that might come to mind when visiting Washington DC’s Adams Morgan. Conveniently located in NW DC at 18th Street and Colombia Road, the neighborhood is well known for being an activity epicenter. The bulk of the action lies on 18th street, which is littered with bars & restaurants. The hungry wanderer can choose from traditional American cuisine, Asian fusion, or Mediterranean, all within a few blocks, while those looking for more of an adventure won’t be disappointed with the neighborhoods proximity to the zoo, galleries, and independent coffee shops.
Unlike other neighborhoods in Washington DC, Adams Morgan is not named after a traffic circle or nearby landmark, but instead from a school district. When the areas two school districts combined in 1958, and new boundaries were drawn, the area began being referred to as Adams Morgan.
Within walking distance of the thriving intersection of 18th St and Columbia Rd, NW commuters will find two metro stations, Woodley Park, which services the red line and Columbia Heights, which services the Green and Yellow line. Metrobus lines 42, 43, 90, 92, 93, 96 and L2 reach the area as well and, as of 2009, the DC Circulator also runs through the neighborhood. In 2010 all of the bike lanes were widened and Capital Bikeshare began to run in the neighborhood as well. Those looking to drive to the area should do so during the day when street parking is much more available rather than at night when it can be very scarce.

Brass Monkey offers karaoke in their basement bar while Madams Organ usually has live music and drinks served out of mason jars. Once the bars and restaurants shut down, late night munchers can head to places like Jumbo Slice or Amsterdam Falafel shop for some seriously good late night eats.
Adams Morgan is well known for its nightlife, but it goes far beyond this label. There are several recreational activities in the area and the most noted, and arguably the most fun, is the annual Adams Morgan Day festival that celebrates live music, art and international cuisine.
The fun doesn’t stop after festival day though, as the neighborhood is full of independently owned bookshops, record stores and art galleries. Smash Records, on 18th Street, is perfect for the punks and metal heads of DC. In addition to music stores there are also several other shops, such as Tora Mata, that define the area with its variety of knickknacks ranging from Peruvian artwork to gemstone jewelry.
