WASHINGTON -- Passengers aren't the only ones benefiting from ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber. Popular bars and restaurants in Washington, D.C. are winning, too.
This week ride-hailing giant Lyft announced its fourth annual Lyftie Awards, giving kudos to the most popular destinations in major cities across the nation. According to Lyft, the data is derived only from the places passengers were dropped off.
"Lyft helps Washington, D.C. residents experience and connect with their city in new and interesting ways," said Steve Taylor, General Manager, Lyft Mid-Atlantic. "We're proud to support the local DC community through convenient, affordable rides and by providing a flexible earning opportunity."
To a local, none of the places on the list are surprising, considering their popularity among millennials and working professionals. In fact, Lyft named the 14th and U Street Corridor as the "Most Visited Late Night Neighborhood" in 2018.
Here's the list of this year's winners:
- Most Visited Bar: El Centro D.F. (Georgetown)
- Most Visited Concert Venue: RFK Stadium
- Most Visited Restaurant for Brunch Busboys (14th Street)
- Most Visited Late-Night Restaurant: Brixton
Lyft also celebrates The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts with the "Only in D.C. Award" a special award given to major landmarks in the district.
