Flash forward to the modern era, and the revitalized neighborhood embraces it early roots with revitalized landmarks like the Lincoln Theatre, U Street Music Hall, the True Reformer Building, and the new Reeves Center redevelopment which will house a restaurant, the Dave Chappelle Comedy Club, the Washington Jazz Arts Institute, and two dance school/studios, the Ailey School and the VIVA School.
