Hill Center is Temporarily Closed

Updated 3/25/20: In accordance with the mayor’s closure of non-essential businesses, we will now be closed through April 24.

Little Pearl is open Wednesday-Sunday from 5-8 pm for carry out.


As a vibrant gathering place for our community, Hill Center prioritizes the safety and well-being of anyone who passes through our doors. We continue to monitor events related to the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 situation closely. On Wednesday, March 11, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Department of Health recommended that all large cultural, social and entertainment venues postpone all nonessential events for the remainder of the month. In concert with that, Hill Center is suspending all programs and events beginning Sunday, March 15 through Tuesday, March 31. Hill Center will be closed to the public as we strive to flatten the curve of the virus outbreak.

If you have registered for a Hill Center event in March, the event will be postponed, and we will be in touch about a rescheduled date. All tickets will be credited.

For those who attend events at Hill Center offered by our program partners, please contact that organization directly with any questions you may have.

This decision is not one our staff and Board of Directors make lightly. We are a small arts and culture nonprofit organization that relies on revenues from ticket sales and space rentals to operate. But we strongly believe that suspending our activities through March 31 is the right decision to make in everyone’s best interest. Our staff will continue to work diligently behind the scenes to monitor the situation, work with program partners and clients to plan for the future, and adjust our COVID-19 response strategy as needed to guarantee the well being of our patrons, partners, staff, and community.

Updated: 3/21: Little Pearl now offers takeout and no-contact delivery. They are open every day except Monday from 11 am-3 pm and 4-8 pm. They now offer beer, wine and cocktails to go as well. Call (202) 618-1868 or email to place an order for takeout or visit Caviar to place an order for delivery.
