Cady’s Alley & Georgetown Design District

Design showrooms meet European cobblestone charm

DC’s original design destination is home to 30+ design showrooms and stores, from contemporary to traditional home furnishings and décor. Cady’s Alley anchors the Georgetown Design District, with more than 20 home furnishing showrooms, fashion and specialty boutiques nestled in a cluster of historic industrial buildings.

Enter at 3300 M Street, or access the area’s cobblestone walkway from M and 33rd or 34th Street. Enjoy a pick-me-up at the authentic European bistro Kafe Leopold, and a sweet treat at District Doughnut.

Days of Design

Every Fall and Spring, Georgetown Design District hosts two days of interior design events–inviting interior designers, design enthusiasts and shoppers alike to visit more than participating design and home furnishings stores for new collection launches, guest speakers, CEUs, design consultations, and more. The next Days of Design event will be held November 7-8. Visit the event page for more.
