Going Out in Gallery Place – Chinatown

Chinatown has really turned it around in the last 20 years. With the development of the Verizon Center, the surrounding blocks are now filled with clubs, bars, restaurants and shopping. The area is easy to access thanks to the Gallery Place-Chinatown metro station. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to dance the night away or party hard after a Caps game, Chinatown is the place to be!
