The Hecht’s transformation is trickling down from the warehouse lofts and common spaces and out to street-level where bars, shops and restaurants will line every street and alleyway. Get up early and head to Compass Coffee for an unpretentious, fair-trade brew. Stay out late at Big Chief for live music and bar games. Wash it all down with a classic cheeseburger at Ivy City Diner. When you live on the most exciting block in Washington, you might never leave.
