"MCI Center; Basketball and Hockey" MCI Center Tip by mattreider

MCI Center, Washington D.C.: 3 reviews and 7 photos

  Outside during the day
by mattreider

Bucking a trend in the United States, Washington DC built a sports arena in the city rather than the suburbs. What happened was predictable -- a lot of restaurants and good bars were setup to quench the thirst of the sports fans before and after the local games.

While this may not seem terribly unusual for our European guests, in America, it's a big deal... so enjoy a game American-style, with a bite to eat prior to cheering for the home team.

Chinatown is right next door, with a collection of small Chinese restaurants and increasing number of chain restaurants adding chinese characters to their street signs. If you need some martial arts gear, this is the area for you.
