U Street, also known as the U Street Corridor, is a commercial and residential neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C with many shops, restaurants, nightclubs, art galleries, and music venues along a nine-block stretch of U Street. It extends from 9th Street on the east to 18th Street and Florida Avenue on the west. It is served by the U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo Washington Metro Green and Yellow Line station.

The U Street area is largely a Victorian-era neighborhood, developed between 1862 and 1900, the majority of which has been designated a historic district comprised of rowhouses. Gentrification began in the 1990s, following development in Adams Morgan, Dupont and Logan Circle, with more than 2,000 luxury condominiums and apartments constructed between 1997 and 2007. U Street has long been a center of WashingtonÍs music scene, with the Lincoln Theatre, Howard Theatre, Bohemian Caverns, and other clubs and historic jazz venues. The 9:30 Club, the Black Cat, DC9, U Street Music Hall, and the Velvet Lounge musical venues are located on the corridor. The zip code for the neighborhood is 20009.
