1129 20th Street NW, Suite 250, Washington, D.C. 20036
It never hurts to have a foothold in the nation’s capital, but we're not purely political animals in DC. We’re one of the most diverse PR firms inside the Beltway, claiming clients in the tech and digital media sectors, consumer products, and social impact. While our client roster is atypical for the area, our staff is quintessential DC -- meaning that it's dynamic, diverse, and filled with transplants. Our people come from Phoenix, New York, and San Francisco, though we do have one native Washingtonian to help us navigate beyond K Street, Georgetown, and the Mall. Clients consistently praise our creative approach and endless energy. That can be the secret ingredient to standing out when things seem too buttoned down.

24 Hours in Washington, D.C.
No matter your political leanings, there are a ton of activities to be had inside the Beltway. For your morning Joe, make your way to Eastern Market where you can mix with the local farmers and producers and buy your fill of fresh pastries, vegetables and spices (bonus points if you happen to visit on a weekend since you can also explore one of the best flea markets that DC has to offer just across the street.) Then with your caffeine in hand, walk down the famed Pennsylvania Avenue to see your government at work. The U.S. Capitol and Library of Congress are open to the public as are the surrounding park grounds.
Now, we would be remiss if we didn’t say that strolling the National Mall is a must-see experience. After all, with over 10 Smithsonian museums to explore, you could spend a week in itself just touring that four-block radius! But if you are looking to explore a different part of D.C., take the Circulator bus to historic Georgetown and make your way over to the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal. Completed in 1850, the canal is one of the most intact survivors of the American canal-building era and connect DC to nearby Cumberland, Md. You can simply enjoy the scenery from one of the many benches along the route, or rent a bike from Big Wheel Bikes for a leisurely ride along the Potomac River. As an alternative for those water-lovers out there, head to Jack’s Boathouse on K Street to kayak, canoe or paddleboard on the river. The water view of the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Memorial and Key Bridge make it worth the extra exercise!
After working up an appetite – whether it by land or sea, clean up and take a cab down to the H Street NE where you can feast on pretty much any cuisine your heart desires. One suggestion for you to consider: Grandville Moore’s – which specializes in moules frites, Belgian beer, and gastropub fare. But hold off on dessert until you’ve had a chance to stroll down the street to Dangerously Delicious Pies. The Baltimore Bomb will leave you speechless. After dinner, stick around H Street and hit up the Rock & Roll Hotel for a live show, or simply chill out at SOVA with a nightcap. No matter your choice, you can’t go wrong.
Washington, D.C. in The Hot Seat
We asked members of our Washington, D.C. office to sound off on food, TV and music and more. Here’s what they had to say:
Favorite Watering Hole
Our office's rooftop. We can see the White House from our patio!
"Back in Black" - AC/DC
Is your city known for any famous movies or photos?
"Mars Attacks!," ranks up there with "A Few Good Men," "The Exorcist," "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," and "All the President's Men," right?
What are the first three things people should see when they visit/move to your city?
The Eastern Market (Saturdays are best), the Farragut Food Trucks (lobster rolls and pie!), and the U Street Corridor (check out Marvin)
What food is most associated with your city?
It's a toss-up between Ray's Hell Burger or Ben's Chili Bowl. Since Ray's doesn't carry spicy mustard (sorry, Mr. President), we like Ben's!
