It is no secret that within the past several years, Bloomingdale has seen its potential realized. The neighborhood is adjacent to LeDroit Park, and developers have flocked to the area to renovate fixer-uppers. The neighborhood now meets the “five-minute rule” - residents can find almost everything they need within a five-minute walk.
Unlike Logan Circle or Columbia Heights, where residents have dozens of restaurant, bar, coffee and shopping options, Bloomingdale has one neighborhood square (at R and 1st Street NW), a couple of taverns (Boundary Stone and Rustik), and two coffee shops/cafes (Big Bear Cafe and Windows Cafe). However, this is still a transforming neighborhood that will continue to attract more and more restaurants and night-life.
As the DC area continues to expand, Bloomingdale will continue to evolve as the hip youngsters befriend long-term residents and create a friendly, cozy neighborhood.
