The new kid on the block in Dupont - and it isn't for the usual kids. With an upscale decor and intimate atmosphere, Residents has become one of the classier bars in Dupont (just a bar away from Mad Hatter), where you can impress your new date or friends from out of town. With artisanal, seasonal cocktails and Instagram-worthy surroundings, this tiny spot is not to be missed. Luminous lights and romantic ivy-colored brick walls in the outer courtyard will make this a hot-spot for warmer nights in spring and summer. Definitely worth checking out! 1306 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20036

Sometimes you just need a giant pretzel with beer cheese… for those times, head to Rebellion, a neighborhood bar in North Dupont. Reminiscent of How I Met Your Mother’s “MacLaren's” or the original “Cheers,” Rebellion is an ideal place to catch a Caps game (or watch any DC Sports team) and enjoy a variety of local beers sourced from the DMV region. 1836 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009
With a relaxed casual atmosphere and plenty of outdoor seating, Dukes is a must in the summertime, where community style outdoor benches play host to neighborhood regulars dining on delicious dishes like “Elote Locos” – Maryland sweet corn served in a miniature cast-iron skillet with Crema Mexicana and Cotija cheese. There’s a growing debate about whether or not Duke’s has the best burger in DC – see for yourself if their “Proper Burger” is truly “best in DC,” or try any one of their mouthwatering “sarnies” (sandwiches). 1513 17th St NW, Washington, DC 20036.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for frozen yogurt! A tiny shop packed with character, Mr. Yogato’s quirky and delicious frozen yogurt flavors (like “fiddleberry”) have made it a neighborhood favorite. All yogurts are fat-free and made in-house, and customers can “go crazy” on toppings of freshly cut fruits or indulge in less healthy options (like Oreos and Captain Crunch). Answer any of the daily trivia questions for 5% off your order. Open until 1am on the weekends, Mr. Yogato is the perfect answer to your late-night sugar craving. 1515 17th St NW, Washington, DC 20036.
Every Friday night the line for hotspot Eritrean restaurant Keren winds itself out the restaurant's front doors and down Florida Avenue as giant shareable plates of "Tibsi" are placed in front of diners in the front windows. With a relaxed casual atmosphere perfect for a weeknight date-night, Keren is a hidden gem. Forgo silverware for Injera (a slightly spongy sourdough flat-bread) to enjoy spicy chickpeas and beef sautéed with garlic and onions. There's truly no better place to get "Ful." 1780 Florida Ave NW, Washington, DC 20009
