LOVE

The best place to live. Everything is perfect. The management is sooo nice. Brian is the best! They are very attentive to fix things in your unit. The "penthouse" (gym, conference room, tv area, outdoor patio) is great especially now to do homework and relax. Im a huge fan. Also im right on 17th street -- by far the best street in DC. Lots of restaurants so fun.

Best apt I've lived in

Apartments are very nice, good size for one person. Management responds to any issues extremely quickly (usually within hours), though there rarely are any. Property is very safe and secure - the security guard on site knows every resident. Walls are pretty thick - I very rarely hear my neighbors. Building is pretty new, so everything is in good shape. Some apartments, including mine, have floor to ceiling corner windows, which make the apartments very bright and feel much larger than they are. Tons of storage space. Great area for young people to live in (bars, restaurants, public transport, etc.).

Great building, location, management

The Drake is a phenomenal building. The entire building is basically brand new, and each apartment has modern appliances and furnishings. The common areas, including a gym, study room, rooftop, and lounge are fantastic. The management team works very hard and does a great job maintaining the building.

Great!

I've lived here for almost 6 months. The building is brand new and the apartments have all of the bells and whistles you would want-- ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, built-in microwave, hardwoods, quiet drawers, W/D in-unit. The common areas are well-maintained. Management is friendly and responsive.

Fantastic place to live

The Drake is a brand new building in Dupont Circle and looks beautiful. Like most new luxury apartments in DC, The Drake comes with tons of great community amenities like a rooftop deck with a griling stations and a fantastic gym (lots of treadmills, ellipticals, and a good set of free weights). The views from the roof are fantastic and the community lounge is great for entertaining guests. Surprisingly, management has been really friendly so far! Lastly, I really love living in Dupont Circle. The location has tons of great bars and restaurants nearby and is really close to the Dupont Circle Metro stop.

Dupont Circle Reviews

I love living in Dupont/West End! I moved from NE DC and have loved getting to know NW better - very close to Dupont Metro (red line), walkable to necessaries such as CVS/market/Trader Joe's isn't far, and tons of restaurants around. From my pre-COVID experience, bar scene in Dupont is awesome. Once we're safer it'll be a blast again, but they've done a good job opening outdoor options for fun weekends! Nice to have a good mix of young professionals/students in the Dupont/WE area too.
Not as many restaurants/bars as other neighborhoods but prime access to Trader Joes/Whole Foods/Streets Market/CVS/Walgreens etc. which makes daily living very convenient.
Lots of fun things to do in a safe, affordable area - farmers market, restaurants. Easily biking or walking distance to GW and I bike to the VA!
Easy walk to GW Law campus, Dupont Circle, and White House. Yummy food, coffee, and drinks in the area.
Dupont Circle is a great neighborhood. It’s reasonably close to the GW campus, but I still feel like there’s some separation between my home and school lives. As for bars, restaurants, and shopping, you really can’t get much better than this! There’s so much to do just within 5 minutes of my apartment!
I don't think I could live anywhere else in DC. I live at the North side of Dupont Circle. I am blocks from 3 grocery stores, gyms, dry cleaners, and the metro. I also can easily walk to school or take a very quick bus. There are tons of restaurant and bar options in the neighborhood as well. The best thing about the North end of Dupont is it is a little quieter and more residential than the south side but you can very easily access the busier parts if you want. I also am a female that is living alone and have never felt unsafe.
I chose to move to Dupont because it is so close to my graduate school classes. It turns out, it is very centrally located and has great access to many different popular neighborhoods in DC. I have easy access to the red, orange, blue, and silver lines; plus, the Circulator makes it easy to get around too. There are certainly plenty of bars and restaurants in the area, several grocery stores nearby, and lots of options for exercise.
Great neighborhood. Very walkable, even at night I always feel safe. Usually lots of people out and about. Young community, lots of bars and some awesome restaurants. Farmers markets and outside concerts in the warm months. Easy access to foggy bottom metro (15min walk) and dupont metro (5 min walk). Lots of green space (rock creek park). Georgetown 20 min walk with great shopping. 20 min walk to AdMo with great restaurants/bars
