5 Favorite Rooftop Bars in DC

Now that cool, spring days are slowly turning into blazing-hot summer days it's time to get in the spirit of outdoor celebrations. I've already discussed my favorite happy hours and brunches in DC, both indoor and outdoor, but with the ever approaching heat and humidity wave that encompasses D.C. each year it's time to talk about another favorite past-time: rooftop sunset and night-time cocktail hours.

I'm not really one for extreme late-night drinking, hence my enjoyment and fascination with brunch and happy hour, but sometimes a nice evening out is just necessary. So, I combine nighttime with class and take to the roofs of D.C. for a cocktail or two in my favorite LBD.

It's the perfect combination of being social yet serene because the views encourage everyone to take a step back, really enjoy the drink in their hands, and admire the view.
