“Tucked away in the heart of Dupont Circle, in Washington D.C., Residents is a charming cafe & bar offering Washingtonians and travelers an exquisite indoor and outdoor dining and cocktail experience.

Residents offers a casual-chic cocktail and dining experience with a keen focus on high-quality, seasonal ingredients. We believe less is more and offer a cocktail and dining experience patrons won’t soon forget.

We skillfully use greenery to create a stunning and perfect ambiance with a beautiful array of plants. We can’t wait to see you.”
