Thanks to Anna for passing on the sad news: “ElectionCycle on H Street is closing. So incredibly sad, it’s such a great, inclusive fitness community. Great instructors and great rides.”

“To our all loyal riders –
We have made the tough decision to close the studio. Though your unwavering support has kept us going through much of the pandemic, we’ve reached the end of our ride. We can even begin to describe what your well-wishes and support have meant through this trying time and over the past 2 plus years.

We have absolutely loved getting to know all of you and being a part of the H St. community. We are so thankful for this journey.

The studio will officially close on November 30th. Read More

“Private chalets at Stable // Photo Credit- Amanda Hoey”

From Stable (1324 H Street, NE):

“DC’s only authentic Swiss restaurant, Stable, will welcome guests back to their H Street home on November 12 for the first time since mid-March with a transformed dining room that will transport guests to wintertime in Switzerland. In lieu of traditional tables, five individual ski chalets – each with their own walls and vented roof overhangs- will create separation and privacy between individual parties. Guests opting to dine in chalets will be seated in the back room of the restaurant. The front will remain the base of Stable’s carry out operation and to-go market featuring bread and pastries baked fresh daily as well as Swiss wine, beer and specialty cocktails. A window perch opening on to H Street will also accommodate one party and, for the first time, Stable will add outdoor dining on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant as well as that of their neighbor, Atlas Vet.
