Help needed with rooftop bar in DC
A few years back on my trip to DC we had a light lunch at a rooftop bar/terrace. I seem to recall it was located in a historic hotel. I remember it looked down over the White House. It wasn't hip or clubby - it was more reserved and established. Can anyone help me remember the name?? Thanks!
If you aren't interested in the clubby feel of the W, you may want to consider lunch at Sou-Wester, at the Mandarin Oriental. It is supposed to have a lovely view of the tidal basin. It's not Obama's backyard, like with the W, but still pretty - especially if you're coming during cherry blossom season.
Thank you all. I was wondering if it might be the bar at the W. It seemed like the right location but the pictures I saw online weren't matching up with what I remembered. How disappointing. Kate - thanks for the suggestion. I was trying to put together a list for some friends who are coming in the fall and as it turns out, DH and I will be coming with them. Who can pass up an invite for a trip to DC?!?
Does the Sou-Wester have outdoor seating or is it indoor with a really good view?
