About Capitol Hill
Brimming with community spirit, Capitol Hill residents are passionate about everything their neighborhood has to offer: charming architecture, quaint shops, superb eateries and friendly cafes. The urbane blend of highly educated locals, Washington power players and young, energetic professionals creates an electric vitality attracting new residents and businesses every day.
Located in one of the nation’s largest historic districts, the Capitol Hill business area includes Eastern Market and the city’s oldest commercial corridor – Barracks Row. Adjacent to globally famous landmarks such as the U.S. Capitol, the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress, Capitol Hill is highly prized by government affairs businesses, yet offers so much more.
A perfect mix of national chain and specialty retail stores, welcoming restaurants, modern amenities and professional services dot the tree-lined streetscape, all part of the small-town feel where many shop owners remember their customers’ names.
