This is a must see perspective on the White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and surrounding area. I had seen DC "illuminated" from street level multiple times before, but this was special. I am told that it is an amazing sight at the Christmas holidays. I hope to see it then in the future.

If you want to offer something special to your business associates who have never been to Washington before, this is the place to be! The view is something you will never forget.

After a big day of sightseeing and before dinner we went to pov for a cocktail as the sun went down. The view of the White House is the best in the city. The cocktails are fairly reasonably priced. We didn't eat here but the food looked good too. Worth a visit.

I would definitely recommend this bar for anyone looking for a lively place to drink in the evening! Nice selection of cocktails, and the view is definitely worth the prices!

Couldn't ask for a better place for an informal business meeting in DC on a Monday evening. Server was friendly and attentive. Food, drinks, vibe all perfect. Will be back.

A nice view of Washington. Tasty appetizers and pizza. Service was fine. But the view is the winner. We did not end up waiting -- potentially because it was end of October. Drawback We were there in October and it was cool so they had the clear plastic screens down. These are not as good as glass because the plastic... More
