Welcome to Adams Morgan

A vibrant DC neighborhood bustling with urban flair and style

Cosmopolitan and cool, Adams Morgan has always been the place for the stylish and artistically minded. Chic cafes, eclectic eateries, and nightclubs pulsing with dance music line 18th Street, welcoming residents with ultra-cool experiences and a warm, inclusive atmosphere. Easy mornings and exciting nights make up the daily routine for this group of laid-back, creative residents. The culturally diverse Adams Morgan was built on inclusivity and equality – in the 1950s, residents rallied for the desegregation of two neighborhood elementary schools and, with that victory in hand, they established a new, welcoming enclave. A simple but deeply significant combination of the names made up the new community’s title: one part from the white-attended John Quincy Adams school and one part from black-attended Thomas P. Morgan.  
The culinary scene in Adams Morgan is as creative and sophisticated as its residents. Whiskeys lead the way at the industrial-chic Jack Rose Dining Saloon, and the New American menu, open-air terrace, hand-selected spirits, and top-shelf service combine to make this one of the best spots in the city. Luxury hotel The Line sports a vintage style and locally distilled spirits, while its No Goodbyes bistro delights with a stylish take on gastropub cuisine. Tryst Coffeehouse redefines the American cafe culture with handcrafted espresso cocktails, like the rooibos latte with bourbon, while scratch kitchen Lapis invites diners into a world of fragrant spices, ornate furnishings, and homestyle Afghan cuisine. This close-knit community takes joy from bringing residents together with events like Adams Morgan Day, DC’s longest-running festival which showcases the area’s most exciting boutiques and bistros. Porches and patios transform into musical stages for the Adams Morgan PorchFest. Stroll the shady streets and bask in the sounds of over 60 musicians performing all day on various stoops throughout the neighborhood. If all the excitement has you longing for a moment of stillness, simply head to the serene Meridian Hill Park, also known as Malcolm X Park, and sit by the cascading fountain. Kalorama Park is a lovely little spot made for sunrise walks with the family dog or lazy afternoon picnics with friends. 

Adams Morgan offers access to some of the best schools in the nation, including the illustrious Sidwell Friends School. Known as the Harvard of private schools, this prestigious prep school teaches preschool through high school students and has been the top choice for the children of several former presidents.
