Favorite DC Rooftops and Patios
Summer is finally here in the district and, I'm enjoying every moment of it. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is enjoy DC rooftops. They're the perfect place to take in the stunning city we call home while enjoying a cool drink. I've mentioned my favorite Happy Hour spots in the city before, so it's high time for me to share the best rooftops too!
The Observatory at The Graham // This is my favorite rooftop in the city. I love that it’s located close to home, school and, work. The views of Georgetown are fantastic and always make me fall a little more in love with my hood. The decor is amazing, the turquoise chairs instantly make me feel like summer. Oh and the drinks are great! This is the perfect date night spot!
Bar Deco // Located right in the heart of Chinatown and steps from the Verizon Center. Making it the perfect spot to grab a drink or two before a Caps or Wizards game. I love that their happy hour starts at 1130am and their rooftop has TV! I enjoyed a birthday brunch here just this past year and it did not disappoint.
Pinea // You guys know my love for Mediterranean food and, what better way to eat some amazing hummus and grape leaves than outdoors with a game of Bocca? Pinea is located literally steps from the National Mall to complete all your tourist dreams and has the most gorgeous patio/ bocca bar I have ever seen. It’s honestly the best.
Beirgarten Haus // This post wouldn’t be complete without a Beer Garden! I love how relaxed the atmosphere is here perfect for a weekend out with friends. It’s affordable and definitely draws in a younger crowd. I also really enjoy the fact that it’s minutes from RFK, hello soccer pregames!
El Centro DF // Another neighborhood spot! Tacos and margs anyone? I love that I can enjoy a delicious meal and drink on the patio after a long shift at work. It’s so close! And the patio out back is just the best. It has a great atmosphere, depending on the day of the week you’ll get a weird mix of college kids and grownups but, still a fun place to go for a meal.
Barcelona Wine Bar // Tapas and wine two of my favorite things. I love this small plates restaurant, with it’s several location across the city and suburbs it’s a great spot to enjoy a meal. I love coming here with my girlfriends for happy hour!
Blue Jacket Brewery // And here’s my salute to Navy Yard. I’m always up to try new drinks and, Blue Jacket so kindly has my favorite sour beer. It’s the strawberry one, it’s amazing and I can drink em all night. This coming from a vodka girl. The interior is amazing, I love that there’s a second story where you can look down. Perfect for people watching.
Hawthorne // If you like a good southern meal full of not so healthy fats, Hawthorne is for you! They have four stories worth of bars, complete with TV and everything. Their rooftop is gorgeous with a covering so you can enjoy it even in the colder months. It’s known to be a little more bro-ey but, I think that’s why I love it so much I mean what other place gives you a complimentary fireball shot?
Did I miss any? Anyone else enjoy rooftops as much as me?
