Discovering DC: 14th Street/Logan Circle


For this week's Discovering DC, we're back in the District and exploring the 14th Street/Logan Circle area with Elle from Wonderful World! 

What's your history with 14th Street/Logan Circle and DC?
I moved to Washington, DC almost 10 years ago to attend The George Washington University and lived in Foggy Bottom for my first couple years in DC. I moved off campus in 2005 to live in the 14th Street/Logan Circle area - originally living with my sister and then later with my husband. It was really up and coming at the time and it's been interesting to see how much the neighborhood has evolved over the years. After 7 years in the neighborhood, we recently moved a few blocks east near the Convention Center, but still spend a lot of time on 14th street as it's close to both our offices.

Discovering 14th Street/Logan Circle- what are your favourite places to shop/eat/go with friends/people watch?
For shopping I love Rue 14 for contemporary clothing and Muleh for a well-curated selection of furniture and designer fashion. There are so many restaurant options in the area (and 14 more opening soon), but some of my favorites include the Zentan or Rice for a date night, Estadio or Cork Wine Bar for small bites and cocktails with friends, Masa 14 or El Centro for bottomless brunches. People watching on the rooftop of the Donovan House hotel is fabulous!

Perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon in 14th Street/Logan Circle?
I'd spend most of the afternoon at Logan 14 Salon Spa getting a facial (from Nellie) and a blowout (from the owner Michael - he's amazing!), then pick up wine and cheese at Cork Market before a stop for gelato at Pitango on the way home!
