April delivers everything from new luxe living in Navy Yard to Bloomaroo at The Wharf.
Crossing is new in Navy Yard.

Feather offers furniture from Herman Miller and Floyd, among other chic brands.
SEE The geniuses at Artechouse recently unveiled Renewal 2121, an immersive digital art experience that looks at the world 100 years from now. Visitors will trek through four galleries to see cityscapes of blooming nature, interactive markets and cyberpunk tableaus. It’s a hopeful view of where science and tech can lead us. Through Sept. 6, 1238 Maryland Ave. SW, dc.artechouse.com
STAY The design and hospitality pros behind the gorgeous Riggs hotel in Penn Quarter are set to open the 196-room Lyle this month. The 1940s art deco building in Northwest has been transformed by Lore Group Creative Director Jacu Strauss. The restaurant and bar, dubbed Lyle’s, is led by Nicholas Sharpe, who previously worked with Fabio Trabocchi at the Michelin-starred Fiamma in New York City. 1731 New Hampshire Ave. NW, 202.570.1233, lyledc.com
New at Union Market District, theTwelve.
DECORATE If you’ve recently leased a luxe apartment in DC and want to decorate it with pieces from notable brands like Floyd and Herman Miller, along with more than 200 decor items, Feather is now in DC. The decor business is perfect for jet-setting residents who move often and therefore don’t have the need for a large furniture collection. Bonus: Feather’s delivery service is carbon neutral. livefeather.com
SHOP In response to a difficult year for local, homegrown retailers, 12 friends recently resolved to do something about it—and created theTwelve, a yearlong experimental commerce and community experience designed to foster beauty, community connection and wellness. The 3,600-square-foot space at Union Market District will showcase art, chic housewares, fragrances and sustainable apparel and accessories. 1262 Fifth St. NE, @thetwelvedc; unionmarketdc.com
GO PINK The Wharf in Southwest continues Bloomaroo this month: Camp Wharf turns pink with Peeps; Transit Pier plays host to the Anime Film Festival (April 3 and 10); and Artechouse creates an interactive cherry blossom mural. Also, look for blossom-inspired menus at much-loved spots like Officina and Del Mar. Through April 11, 760 Maine Ave. SW, wharfdc.com
GROOM Gents, let’s all agree to drop the COVID cuts, or lack thereof. Instead, consider Boardroom Salon for Men, which recently opened its first salon in the region at Mosaic District in Fairfax. In addition to a full suite of grooming services, the salon features dark wood paneling, a pool table, a chessboard, a comfortable lounge and overstuffed leather chairs. 2920 District Ave., Ste. 165, 571.380.4114, boardroomsalon.com
