Mt.Vernon, the DC spot and not George Washington's old estate, is smashed between Gallery Place, Shaw, and Logan Circle. Development is a non-stop story in this nabe as block and after block is being turned into something awesome. On New York Ave between 6th and 7th Streets are three bars that can give even the pickiest bar patron what he's looking for. There's Lux Lounge for a classy, sophisticated experience. Next door is the New York Avenue Beach Bar for a whimsical time. And next to that is DC Eagle, which is for a more niche group looking for guys who like leather and/or underwear. Even though the Eagle is heading out of the nabe in November after 25 years of keeping things risque in Mt. Vernon, there are still plenty of options for drinking, chilling, and living in this ever-evolving environ.
