While the address is Maryland Avenue, there's no mistaking that The Maryland is fully a fixture of the famed H Street Corridor/Atlas District. This gorgeous, newer building actually shares the same block with some of the hip neighborhood's most popular destinations. From the Atlas Performing Arts Center itself, to Maketto and the H Street County Club and Hill Prince and Atlas Doghouse and Bullfrog Bagels -- and on and on.... They're all on this unbeatable block! Your very own awesome Atlas District home, The Maryland's Unit 207, gives you not only this amazing location, but all the comfort and convenience you demand. Glide along the light, hardwood floors as you enter.
The oversized sliding-glass doors, with Juliette balcony, will certainly catch your eye immediately. But don't forget to stop and savor the kitchen, with quartz countertops and sleek, soft-close cabinetry. You'll likely not even notice the full-size washer and dryer, tucked into their dedicated laundry closet. Deeper in, you'll love the huge bathroom, especially its walk-in shower. Atop it all, enjoy The Maryland's stunning roof deck with breathtaking 360-degree views of D.C. and beyond.
H Street NE, a dynamic one-and-a-half mile stretch in Northeast DC, is known for its nightlife, restaurants, pop-ups, festivals and communal atmosphere. Art lovers flock to The Atlas Performing Arts Center, home to a variety of performances, events and initiatives spanning a range of artistic traditions. The Atlas bills itself as “where the arts, culture and connection happen on H Street.” The neighborhood’s largest event is the annual H Street Festival, which spans 10 blocks and attracts roughly thousands of patrons. Highlights of the fall event include musical performances and multi-cultural entertainment, in addition to art exhibits, for-sale crafts and an array of offerings from local food trucks and restaurants.
Another must-see: the seasonal H Street Farmers’ Market, open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from mid-April to mid-December at 800 13th Street NE. Visitors will find the best of local, seasonal bounty, including handmade cow milk cheeses, fruits, vegetables, pastries and flowers. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a live chef demo and score some free samples. As far as restaurants go, expect a multitude of delectable options. Local chef Erik Bruner-Yang first attracted foodies to H Street with Toki Underground, which serves up hearty bowls of ramen and dumplings. While no longer with Toki Underground, diners can find Bruner-Yang further down the street at Maketto, a dining-retail-coffee shop triumvirate featuring Taiwanese fare, as well as Cambodian dishes. Nearby, Le Grenier serves up French fare in an industrial-chic setting and Ben’s Chili Bowl delights visitors with its half-smokes.
