The area is known as H Street NE Corridor/Atlas District. From 4th to 14th Streets there are numerous bars and restaurants, as well as places with live music. My house is far enough away to not have any bar foot traffic, so you can sleep quietly. And, it is close enough that you just walk 5 minutes to a good wine bar. There are many public transportation options: streetcar, buses, and the Metro (plus Uber). This is a walkable community. And, it is definitely city living in Washington, DC!
