Farragut North is a Washington Metro station in Washington, D.C., on the Red Line.

Farragut North serves downtown Washington and is located just north of Farragut Square. It lies at the heart of the business district on Connecticut Avenue, with two entrances at L Street and one at K Street. Adjacent to the L Street entrance is a food court which has its own stairway to the surface. This is the busiest station in the system in terms of fares.[1] It is also one of the most shallow, with a lower-than-usual ceiling. The low, flat ceiling at the west end was built to accommodate a proposed freeway ramp to Interstate 66, which was never built. Service began on March 27, 1976.

As part of the long-term capital improvement plan dated September 12, 2002, Metro has proposed building an underground pedestrian tunnel connecting this station with Farragut West.

The station, as with the nearby square, takes its name from Admiral David Farragut, the senior officer of the U.S. Navy during the American Civil War.
