The Churchill sits at the feet of two of D.C.’s hippest neighborhoods: Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan. Dupont Circle has a huge selection of specialty shops, as well as mainstays like Banana Republic and the Gap south of the Circle. It is also close to Adams Morgan, an even livelier section of the city that contains eclectic shops, avant-garde restaurants, and a rowdy weekend nightlife crowd known for pouring out of bars at closing time and scarfing down jumbo slices of pizza. Further up is the U Street Corrider, home to antique and contemporary furniture stores, jazz clubs and Ben’s Chill Bowl, a D.C. spot well-known for hot dogs and half-smokes. Also close by is Georgetown, a trendy shopping spot perfect for people-watching, searching for funky clothing, and splurging on upscale goods.
