In DC, a "convenient" location can be anything from a spot that has a hot-dog vendor parked outside it to one that's within a 15-minute walk of a subway stop. Here at Metro Offices, convenient means having amenities right at your fingertips -- the way our clients do at our Dupont Circle location.
At 1250 Connecticut Ave. NW, you can get your work done, socialize with peers and colleagues, work out, dine, bank, and shop -- all without venturing outside even once. Of course, now that warmer weather seems to be on the way and the cherry blossoms have hit their peak, you may want to take a walk outside anyway. After all, historic Dupont Circle itself, with its beautiful and iconic fountain, is just a few blocks away.
But when time is of the essence -- and when isn't it? -- the ability to get everything done in one place can be priceless. Here, we list four favorite amenities of our truly convenient Dupont Circle location.
It's happened to everyone. You're at work when you realize you have to run to the bank -- but the one you go to is nowhere near your office and it closes at 5 p.m. Say goodbye to that dilemma when you call Metro Offices' Dupont spot your work home, because there's an EagleBank on the very first floor. A small, local bank, EagleBank prides itself on its customer service. So if you're tired of being just another checking-account number to the teller at the nearest branch of your financial institution, give EagleBank a try -- and if you're at our Dupont location, all your banking will be a cinch.
City Tap House Dupont
Finding a tasty, fresh, affordable, and quick lunch when you're at work can often be a tall order. Not so for customers working at our Dupont Circle spot; the highly rated City Tap House, a favorite with locals, is onsite. Down-home comfort food with an elegant twist, City Tap House's lunch options include everything from a variety of brick-oven pizzas, to Korean short-rib tacos, to the catfish po' boy. Having a work lunch with colleagues or a customer? Order a bunch of tasty apps off the "For the Table" section and lunch is done. It won't cost you an arm and a leg, either. A "Handheld," such as the decent-sized burger on a brioche bun or the crispy fried-chicken sandwich will run you $15 apiece. Feeling a bit more black-tie? Try the miso-glazed salmon, for $24.50.
There's nothing quite like getting some wardrobe-updating spring shopping done on your lunch break. It totally eliminates any crowds, finding parking, or getting a sitter for the kids. At our Dupont location, you can pop right downstairs and pick up any number of elegant womens' pieces, everything from scarves and jewelry to gowns, skirts, trousers, and shoes.

Onsite fitness center
By now, most New Year's resolution exercisers have long since given up their work-out-more promises. That means the gleaming, modern, professionally maintained and cleaned onsite fitness center at 1250 Connecticut may be less crowded -- and you can have your pick of the latest weight and cardio machines. With ample room for you to do whatever you're into, fitness-wise -- yoga, shadow-boxing, CrossFit-type plyo workouts -- the gym is just an elevator ride away when you work at our Metro Offices' Dupont Circle spot.
