Lots of great energy here. Fun rooftop bar with great views of the White House. DJs on the weekend and turns into a fun nightlife spot. This place is an all season venue so you can come anytime of year.

This was the worst experience Ive had while in DC. My groups check was over 700. The service was terrible, and the server and manager have seemed to forget what industry they are in.

Reservations recommended, but not required. I had no reservation but was seated within 2 minutes. Server was knowledgeable and checked on us often.

POV (Point of View) Lounge is a trendy rooftop bar that offers an incredible view of Washington DC. I had very tasty drinks and good food, but you certainly pay for the view. It's definitely not cheap, even for DC.

Although the drinks and eats are pricey, if you’re going to do it right in DC this is the place to go. You will be hard-pressed to find a view better than this one. The White House of course is right in front of you....More

Hmmmmm . . . I don't remember seeing it on the menu. But it's a pricey place, and it's all about the view, so I would be surprised.

Once you're ready to see and be seen, ascend to W Washington D.C.'s iconic rooftop bar and lounge, POV. Here, your fashion statement is just as meaningful as your political one, so dress to impress and break through the red tape of D.C. with views of the White House normally reserved for those elected to office. POV's design is inspired by three contextual insights local to Washington, D.C., social, physical and historical, which are in turn reflected through its design details. Our rooftop lounge features various seating zones, ranging from communal tables to VIP banquettes. No matter which side of the aisle you're on, you'll enjoy sipping a drink from the bar and experiencing POV's unique programming, which is centered on its passion points of Music, Fashion, Design and Cocktail Culture.
