Dupont Circle — 8.8/10 Rating (based on 156 neighborhood reviews)
Dupont Circle is close enough to school to make for an easy commute, but far enough away to feel like I actually am off-campus in my free time. The area has plenty of food and going out options and is close enough to AdMo, which also boasts some great restaurants and fun bars. My favorite bagel place, cafe, and bakery are merely steps from our building—namely Tatte, Call Your Mother, and Un Je Ne Sais Quoi. Would recommend living here.

Being close to a lot of hotels makes the area feel more safe. Outside of the hotels, it also feels pretty residential in the surrounding areas, plus it's really close to Georgetown, which is a great area to explore. There's also a Streets Market right downstairs which is super convenient.

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

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.

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.

Super incredible how you can walk down the street to old-town DC, walk down another street and its all clubs and bars of DuPont, walk the other direction and its GW, walk another direction and its DuPont circle and all the incredible food. This is an ideal location, especially being situated right in between Foggy Bottom / GW Metro stop and the DuPont Metro stop.

South of the circle shuts down on the weekends. It's a ghost town of high rise office buildings devoid of any character that makes DC such a loveable city.

The M street and Connecticut Avenue bars are close however, it's a very specific crowd of people and not the place to go if you have an aversion to sticky floors and drunk coeds. In terms of every day errands: there are plenty of CVS type stories in the general vicinity however be prepared to walk at minimum a mile to get groceries. On a nice day it's no big deal but on a rainy day you're going to wish there was a closer option.

The Dupont Farmer's Market is a lovely respite from the corporate bustle on the weekends and you can't beat the location in terms of convenience for getting around the city. It's walking distance to everything and a great launching off point if you want to get out of the city for the day.

Great restaurants and young people. Lots to do. Red line of the metro gets to a lot of the sightseeing. Short commute by walk or bike.
