      This restaurant in the popular Mosaic District just opened its trendy rooftop bar in July 2021. It's just as nice as those DC joints, but patroned by the hip suburban crowd.

      Arguably the trendiest of rooftop bars, this one has the price tag to match. But with views of the White House and Washington Monument, it's easy to understand why. Just make sure you have a reservation, especially on the weekends.

  • Beacon Bar & Grill, United States

      Even though this is at a hotel, the prices are reasonable and it's a very chill vibe. It's a couple blocks off the main drag, so it's convenient to everything, but it's great for those who don't want to be in the center of the action.
