Welcome to Bloomingdale/Eckington, DC

Friendly neighbors and a hip vibe in a historic DC enclave

The Age of Enlightenment is here and it's shining like a kaleidoscope through the neighborhoods of Bloomingdale and Eckington. Boasting acclaimed, chef-driven restaurants and gorgeous, meticulously restored Victorian homes, these historic neighbors are the new darlings of DC. Brimming with urban energy and a warm, close-knit community, Bloomingdale and Eckington treat residents to leafy streets, expansive parks, and a stunning array of homes, including palatial, turn-of-the-century estates. Colorful row houses with wide porches and stylish turrets are a hallmark of these vibrant neighborhoods – they were even featured in the opening credits of House of Cards. Perhaps these two stylish neighborhoods owe their chic beauty to those original estate owners back in the 1800s – each was initially built as part of grand private properties designed for wealthy landowners. 
This dynamic area pampers residents with a myriad of culinary delights. The creative, wood-fired cuisine at acclaimed bistro The Red Hen includes seasonally inspired American dishes with an Italian influence. The airy, rustic-industrial space impresses with sumptuous pasta, creative new recipes, and classic comfort food crafted from fresh, local ingredients.
The highly lauded Boundary Stone is known for its warm atmosphere, vintage setting, and outstanding gastropub menu. Enjoy a decadent brunch of housemade cinnamon rolls and goat cheese quiche, or stop in for a lively dinner and curated collection of whiskeys. Intimate and whimsical, Big Bear Cafe shines as a cafe and workspace by day, serving freshly roasted coffee and oversized sandwiches – but by night, this beloved eatery transforms into a fairytale setting, complete with grapevines weaving their way around the cobblestone patio, the scent of fragrant herbs wafting in from the bistro garden, and a rich New American menu. Those with a taste for barbeque will adore DCity Smokehouse, a hip spot with a custom smokehouse and award-winning lineup of sandwiches and classic barbeque dishes. Enjoy a leisurely Sunday at the Bloomingdale Farmers’ Market and fill your basket with organic vegetables – or delicious picnic fare for a long, lazy afternoon at Attucks Park. This hidden oasis of gorgeous green space and vivid wildflowers is also known as the Secret Park for its privacy and seclusion. 

Bloomingdale and Eckington residents are fortunate to have access to the District of Columbia Public School District, which is highly rated for its outstanding teachers, as well as standout institutions like McKinley Technology High School, a five-star STEM-focused academy.
