Located in the Atlas Arts District, Smith Commons Dining Room & Public House is just that – a neighborhood bistro with delicious dining and many ways to toast any occasion.



Smith Commons’ three-story building in the heart of H St. NE offers an internationally inspired menu of approachable cuisine, and an array of craft beers, wines, and cocktails. There's something for every palate.

The mix of old and new, comfortable design and furnishings beckon guests to enjoy the first floor dining room. The ‘commons’ lounges and bars on the second and third floors feature the seasonal outdoor patios for dinner nightly, and for weekend brunch. Accented by images of historic H Street, vintage moments of celebrations, an eclectic playlist, and warm and friendly service, Smiths of any name and friends are always welcome.

Metered and Street Parking are the best options for parking. The closest paid parking garages can be found on 7th and H Street, or Union Station in which you can catch the free DC Street Car from both locations. It's best that you avoid parking in the Auto Zone parking lot because it is reserved for Auto Zone customers only. If you park there, you are risking a $250 ticket and your car may get towed at your expense. To avoid any parking woes, Lyft or Uber is recommended so you can fully enjoy yourself during your time on H Street.
