The Logan Circle in Washington DC derives its name courtesy the equestrian statue it is home to, that of a Major General who fought in the American Civil War. When you explore the neighborhood in the northwest quadrant through your private tours Washington DC, you will instantly notice the statue of John A. Logan mounted on a horse in the midst of the circle. Below is a compilation of top things to do in the Logan Circle.
Watch Plays at the Studio Theatre

It has four stages, comprising of one apiece stage to host musical concerts, comedies, dramas, and an indoor performance space with pitch black walls in the ground level.
Taste Beer at the ChurchKey Bar
This bar on top of Birch & Barley restaurant is a favorite among the hipsters in and around DC’s 14th Street corridor and beer connoisseurs. It has a fine collection of over 500 beers including draft beer, cask beer, and especially, bottled beer. If you are a fan of beer varieties such as doppelbocks, sour ales, and the hoppy India pale ale beers, it is worth a visit.
Try Dining Outdoors
Eating food outside or Al Fresco dining is a popular activity of Washingtonians, who converge in 14th Street to spend timeouts with friends or family after working hours or after 5 in the evening. Some of the notable restaurants in the circle include Masa 14, which serves cocktails, beers, and wines and Latin-Asian small dishes on the upper deck, and Ghibellina that offers Italian wines and snacks.
Music at Black Cat
This music hall found in 1993 is the place to be in if you want to listen to live and independent music concerts from both upcoming and cult musicians. It hosts punk rock, electronica, and standard rock concerts virtually every night, DJ gigs, and comedy shows on occasions. After the concert or before it begins, you can walk into an onsite cafe here that distributes vegetarian chow including Mexican Lasagna.
Besides these places, Logan Circle is home to several other restaurants like Le Diplomate, which brings home the ambience of a mini-Paris. When on Washington DC private tours, it is a must-visit too.
