Smith Commons

Washington DC



Smith Commons Dining Room & Public House is a three-story neighborhood bistro on the H St. NE corridor in the Atlas Arts District. With an international menu of approachable cuisine, Smith Commons offers something for every palate during your wedding celebration. The well-honed interiors and seasonal outdoor patios offer a perfect space for your loved ones. Architect James Phillips designed the reconstruction of 1245 H St. NE from a carpet warehouse to an inviting neighborhood dining destination. Smith Commons features a bar on each level, white oak floors, exposed-brick walls, picture windows, outdoor balconies and a loft space that overlooks the second-floor lounge. Ty Hand-Smith of Design 36ixty brought the look and feel of the space together with accent lighting, high back chairs, soft lounge furniture and a contemporary mix of finishes, textures and visual elements that make for a uniquely comfortable and sophisticated setting. Host your big day at Smith Commons.
