When you want to kick back and relax, spend a fun-filled evening at a rooftop bar. As you sip your favorite cocktails, you can take in the beautiful views while catching up with old friends. If that sounds good to you, visit one of these rooftop bars near our Arlington apartments:

The Rooftop DC

With a retractable roof, The Rooftop offers plenty of year-round fun. Twinkling lights set the mood, while the floor-to-ceiling glass can be collapsed to let in the warm summer breeze. Behind the bar, the bartenders create refreshing, innovative cocktails. They keep the menu fresh and exciting and offer happy hour Wednesday through Saturday, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and all day on Sundays. For a delicious meal with your drink, try the pork belly tacos or Wagyu filet mignon. 

Ellipse Rooftop Bar 

Called the best rooftop bar in DC, Ellipse offers an elevated bar experience just minutes from the White House. Fire pits add a warm, cozy feel, and the plush seats allow you to take in the stunning skyline views in both comfort and style. Offerings include signature cocktails, local beers, and a selection of fabulous wines. 

The Rooftop at the Graham 

Known as a “see and be seen” destination, The Rooftop at the Graham doesn’t disappoint. It offers unparalleled service and spectacular views of DC and the historic Georgetown neighborhood. In addition to taking in the incredible views, try the food; the chefs recently created a new food menu. They only use the finest, freshest ingredients, and their delicious offerings will pair well with your favorite adult beverage. Try the Thai tiger shrimp flatbread with a Roosevelt Island cocktail or a glass of sparkling wine.

A visit to any one of these rooftop bars in Arlington is sure to be a memorable experience. After enjoying a few drinks under the open sky, relax at home with a good read from a locally-owned bookstore. To become a resident of 2001 Clarendon Blvd, please contact us.
