Welcome To the Chinatown Neighborhood In Washington, DC.

Originally a small, historic neighborhood situated east of downtown that thrived with small businesses, markets, and ethnic restaurants, Chinatown has been transformed into a lively “city chic” area dominated by several new high-rise properties and the residents they draw.

The most recent additions to the residential buildings include the 6th Street Flats, Gallery Place, the Cosmopolitan, Mather Lofts, and The Ventana.

Where to Live in Chinatown

Still famous for the Friendship Arch, its annual Chinese New Year festival, and an enormous Chinese gate erected over H Street at 7th Street. What draws visitors and residents to Chinatown these days is the influx of entertainment venues, cultural centers, shops, and restaurants. These structures have been repurposed and restored with magnificent outcomes.

The Verizon Center, a newly established entertainment and sports arena, is home to the Nationals hockey team, the Mystics women’s professional basketball team, and Wizard’s professional basketball team.

Just across 7th Street, the Old Patent Office Building houses two of the Smithsonian Museums in the D.C. area—the American Art Museum and The National Portrait Gallery with a glass-enclosed courtyard. Adjacent to the museum, the celebrated restaurant, Poste Moderne Brasserie, and its parent hotel, Monaco, occupy the restored landmark Tariff Building. Chinatown offers a unique blend of Chinese and contemporary living, complete with good transportation and social amenities.
