Atlas Room: Modern American fine dining coming to 1015 H Street

Via HStreetDC on Twitter:
The Atlas Room at 1015 H hopes to open in July. Modern American food by chefs experienced at some of best in town. Great addition to #HSt.

This is the building that was formerly home to Napa 1015 and is directly across the street from Liberty Tree (1016 H St). Rita's Water Ice (1014 H St) is also expected to open on that block next door to Liberty Tree early this summer.

  1. Nice. And the Atlas District spreads to the west.

    To me the "Atlas District" has always been the stretch from 10th to 15th.

  3. Would it be possible for "Atlas District" to spread all the way to Union Station? If not, why not?

    Maybe because the Atlas District is named for the Atlas Theatre? And the Atlas Theatre is 1.5 miles from Union Station?

    While on the subject, have residents at that end started using the "Atlas District" moniker? Hopefully it has remained a commercial/real estate term only. I am thankful Capitol Hill North never caught on in Near Northeast...

  5. I live on the west end of H and I don't mind Atlas District. The renovation of the Atlas was a real catalyst for the street plus you can see the marquee from pretty far away which makes it a good landmark/icon for the street. You don't have to call it the Atlas district if you don't want to but I don't get why it bothers you (and others). One other thing - lots of times when I say I live off H Street people hear "8th Street" I guess that's why they started calling it Barracks Row...

  6. I think it should be known as SoFlo, South of Florida.

  7. Originally, the city deemed the east end of H (believe it was the 1300-1500 blocks, but may include up to 1100) "the H Street Arts & Entertainment District", not the Atlas District. This was before the Atlas had been renovated and when it was still just the SOVA, the Playhouse and a handfull of others in the area. The Atlas District moniker came from somewhere and is arguably an easier roll off the toungue, but it was never really officially named that.
