Drinks are seriously pricey here but the view is phenomenal. Bar has an open air and closed sections depending upon the weather. Turns into a night club later on in the evenings.

This is a hidden gem for anyone who would like to see Washington DC from many stories up. Looking right at the White House, Treasury and Executive buildings.

The views are wonderful from the lounge, no matter where you park yourself! One of the best places to see the Capital and surrounding points of interest.
