PARKING INFORMATION - Street parking on 11th St and on adjacent streets – just be sure to avoid Residential-Only spots. Two (2) parking garages are only a short walk away (*14th St near Target, and *Park Rd at Giant Food) and there’s METRO - The Columbia Heights Station at 14th St, only 4 blocks away. BloomBars is not a restaurant or bar, so no food is served. It does not have its own parking, so we encourage you to arrive on time and take advantage of the METRO or the parking garages, as described above. Thank you!
