Looking for something to do this weekend on Lower Georgia Avenue? We have you covered!
Doubles (3118 Georgia Avenue NW)
It’s time to celebrate – Doubles has just reopened their indoor seating! After a long hiatus, this cozy neighborhood cafe is back and better than ever. Stop by and enjoy a cup of their amazing coffee and tea to give yourself a morning caffeine boost, or stay a bit longer to work and hang out inside at their comfy workspaces (with ping pong tables!) or outside on their heated patio. Pair your order with a delicious slice of their apple buckwheat cake or brown butter chocolate chip cookie for a sweet addition to your trip!
Smitty’s (3549 Georgia Avenue NW)
Grab your friends and enjoy the fall weather at Smitty’s! Their back patio, complete with heaters and fire pits, is the perfect place to sit back and talk while enjoying delicious food and drinks. If you’re down to do brunch, they offer dishes like huevos rancheros and breakfast croissant sandwiches from 11:00am-3:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. If you’re instead looking for a later hangout spot, this bar and streatery’s menu gets even better! With all kinds of tacos, burritos, and quesadillas alongside an amazing drink selection (we recommend the make-your-own Mule!), this neighborhood spot is the perfect place to meet friends and relax in a comfy, welcoming environment.
SWEAT DC (3325 Georgia Avenue NW)
If you’ve been having a hard time getting back into your pre-pandemic workout groove, or if you’re looking to start exercising for the first time, SWEAT DC knows how to help. This local gym offers free one-on-one assessments with their certified personal trainers to help you set up a plan to reach your goals. Their programs cover all sorts of exercises while combining upbeat music, top-notch coaching, and science-backed techniques for a worthwhile workout experience. Get out there and start a healthier life today!
Commonwealth Cantina (3911 Georgia Avenue NW)
Wanting to join the DC brunch craze, but prefer to sleep in on the weekends? Commonwealth Cantina gets it, which is why they offer their delicious brunch menu from 11:00am-5:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays! This restaurant offers breakfast classics with a Tex-Mex twist. Enjoy specialties like their fajita omelet, brunch burrito, and chopped taco salad topped with a refreshing tequila lime dressing. And since no brunch in the District is complete without drinks, you have to check out their house cocktail specialties, as well as their extensive lists of draft beer, wine, and tequila!
Salt and Pepper Grill (2632 Georgia Avenue NW)
Don’t feel like cooking this weekend? We get it. Instead, we recommend ordering from Salt and Pepper Grill! This local restaurant serves traditional Indian and Pakistani food that’s garnered high praise from locals. Fresh, hot, and perfectly seasoned, all of their plates are deliciously prepared, but we especially recommend their samosas, mango lassi, chicken biryani, and chicken tikka masala. Order extra garlic naan for a perfect side dish to your meal! You’ll have finished your plate and be ordering more in no time.
