Long considered the land of pencil-pushing politicos and buttoned-up barristers, Washington, DC is definitely loosening up. Formerly sketchy neighborhoods like Logan’s Circle and Chinatown have been revitalized and are teeming with always-booked eateries, eclectic galleries, and late-night live music.
