Adams Morgan

DC's Diverse Dwelling
The diversity and energy of Adams Morgan make it an ideal location for families and young professionals. A row of stores display their collections on the streets such as Idle Time books for readers, Urban Dwell for home decor and accessories and Meeps for some vintage fashion. From South Asian cuisine to hand-crafted cocktails, Adams Morgan has a place for everything.

Reviewers say it's a popular nightlife spot while also doubling as a cozy neighborhood. The area is extremely walkable but the only downfall is that there aren't a ton of metro stops or buses, which could make your commute a little more difficult.

Adams Morgan — 8.7/10 Rating (based on 42 neighborhood reviews)
I love living in Adams Morgan. There are so many parks, recreational centers, bars, and restaurants. Whenever friends want to get together, I never have to go far. I also love that there are not many chain amenities, so you’re really supporting local businesses. The night life can lean a little toward the younger college crowd, but it’s also easy to head toward DuPont or U St if you’re looking for something a little different.

1818 Riggs is situated in the northern Dupont Circle neighborhood, immediately surrounded by residential buildings but within walking distance of Connecticut Ave NW, 18th St NW, and 14th St NW. Very hospitable and convenient for all amenities needed.

Great mix of tree lined streets with pretty old brick homes and restaurants, coffee shops, nightlife, etc. Near Rock Creek Park for an escape from city life and exercise. Near the zoo for fun time off. Convenient quality grocery stores within walking distance (Harris Teeter, Safeway, etc.). Dog park down the street. Families with children playing outside into the evening.

Adams Morgan has a great mix of families and young professionals, which means blend of coffee shops, grocery stores, and restaurants and bars. The neighborhood looks incredibly different in day vs. at night -- so has something for everyone. Public transport isn't ideal (no metro stop and not a ton of buses) but is a great place to live and can get most places in the city pretty easily.

Like I said before, it is a really active and full part of town with a lot going on. I've come across several families who live in my building alone, and overall (besides some of the chaos that happens up in AdMo come the weekend) it's a great and safe area to live in.

Although the community is a 10 minute walk from Adams Morgan and U Street, it still feels very private. I can see the Washington Monument from my window, but it is like a little suburb that comes out of nowhere in NW DC.

It is the young social scene area of Washington DC. The other spot is U street which is only a few blocks away. However you are at enough away from the main nightlife area so you will never hear any of it.

Fantastic restuarants, bars and decent amounts of open/green space. Mostly friendly neighbors and a relatively short walk to the Woodley park metro stop or Columbia Heights. High concentration of houseless persons on some streets can be disruptive.

Do you like bohemian districts? If yes, than you'll love AdMo. This place has everything: Drifters, stoners, angry ideologues preaching divine ruination, some guinely excellent cocktail bars and restaurants. Are illciti pandemic speakeasies or constant ambient marijuana smoke not your cup of tea? Then go live in Petworth, nerd.

Adams Morgan is a popular nightlife spot with a neighborhood feel. 18th St is crazy on weekends, but just a few steps away are quiet residential areas. It offers a wonderful location for those who like to explore their surroundings (including restaurants and bars offering fare from around the world, and the 1st class Meridian Hill Park), while offering a quick escape from the bustle of city life. This is not downtown, nor is it a suburb. The demographics are nicely varied, unlike some ritzier areas nearby. A very interesting and comfortable place to live.

Admo has a reputation for the weekend evening activities that occur but Adams Morgan is also a great neighborhood gem to spend time in. With so many food options and parks within walking distance, it's perfect for more than just going out on a Saturday night. You have the perfect balance of night life with being in a walkable neighborhood which is also close to several other happening neighborhoods.
