    VIBE

    This trendy bar pairs meticulously prepared cocktails (made with one of four types of ice specially cut for each drink) with unparalleled views of the White House and downtown Washington DC. Weekdays bring chic post-work imbibers to the terrace in droves, while on weekend nights, the bar heats up with a DJ and party crowd.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Skirt, trendy top, and some statement shoes

    GO HERE WITH

    Friends; a date; out-of-towners

    CROWD

    Hip 20- and 30-somethings; Washington suits; hotel guests

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    The view overlooking the White House, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial can’t be beat, especially at sunset. Add creative cocktails (such as the Raspberry Gin Sour and Dark ‘n' Stormy with house-made ginger brew) plus a roof terrace into the mix, and we’ve got the recipe for a perfect DC night out. If you’re looking to dance, there's a DJ Friday and Saturday nights.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The wait. Late in the evening, when the bar is close to max capacity, the line can get pretty chaotic.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Get there early to avoid a wait. If you need a snack, small plates are served at the bar from 11:00am-9:00pm. A “fashionably chic” dress code is enforced; no baseball hats, flip flops, tank tops, sneakers, or athletic wear is permitted.
