Credit goes to the 9:30 Club for inciting a music movement in downtown D.C. in the 1980s. One of America’s best-known rock clubs has since moved to the edge of the U Street corridor in the up-and-coming Shaw neighborhood, where it’s easy to find a trendy restaurant or cocktail bar before a show. Indie bands and mainstream stars alike dig the intimate, standing-room-only venue, which fits 1,200 patrons. It’s hosted Bob Dylan, Smashing Pumpkins, Beastie Boys, and local band O.A.R., as well as reggae acts, house-music DJs, and jazz groups. 930.com
