Why We’re Thankful for Dupont Circle
There are few areas in Washington, D.C. with as much historical charm and cultural vibrancy as Dupont Circle. Here at The St. Gregory Hotel, our stylish space is nestled in the middle of renowned art destinations, restaurants, and shops that make our piece of the city truly special. As Thanksgiving approaches, we’re more grateful than ever for our neighborhood in the nation’s capital. Here are a few of the reasons that make Dupont Circle our favorite D.C. destination.
The Golden Triangle
Spanning 44 square blocks from Dupont Circle to Pennsylvania Avenue, The Golden Triangle is a hub where economic development, public art, and cultural engagement beautifully intersect. With over 6,000 businesses and 200 restaurants to explore, this innovative hub adds a cheerful glow to the D.C. experience. The Golden Triangle features a lively calendar of events, including open-air concerts, invigorating fitness classes, and inspiring art activations among other events.
For a true taste of the one-of-a-kind events that happen in Dupont Circle, don’t miss our upcoming show with Sofar Sounds. They transform everyday spaces into stunning venues for secret, live shows, creating an immersive and up-close experience. Join us in The St. Gregory Ballroom at 8:00 p.m. on November 21 to enjoy performances by three secret artists and discover new, local talent. We recommend making an evening of it by grabbing dinner at Ellington Park Bistro before the show or by sipping on creative cocktails while you take in the music.
When it comes to dining, Dupont Circle offers a diverse range of options, and we're thankful for the culinary variety within and just steps away from The St. Gregory Hotel. At the height of cosmopolitan sophistication is Ellington Park Bistro, our contemporary French restaurant offering everything from quick bites to lingering three-course meals.
For a taste of Paris, a breakfast of brioche French toast is a must-try. After you’ve done some city exploration, come back for happy hour and snack on marinated olives and truffle fries as you sip on a Negroni or Pinot Noir. And for those planning a Thanksgiving getaway, we're offering a special Thanksgiving prix fixe menu and a takeout option for two, adding a touch of elegance to your holiday stay.
If a craving for Indian cuisine sets in, then you’re in luck. Just a five-minute walk from our hotel, you’ll find Rasika West End—a delicious choice for lovers of modern Indian tandoori. Their cozy menu is perfect for warming up on a cold autumn day before you return to the laid-back comfort of your space at The St. Gregory Hotel.
The Phillips Collection
For art aficionados, The Phillips Collection is a jewel right in our neighborhood. Home to works by renowned artists like Renoir, Van Gogh, and O'Keeffe, this museum is one of D.C.'s premier art spaces. Be sure not to miss their special exhibition on African Modernism in America or their special Rothko Room installation. We’re proud to share a neighborhood with such an important and awe-inspiring collection of pieces.
