Description: 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.

View was amazing. Drinks were good. Vibe was spectacular! Decor was awesome. There's an outdoor area and an indoor dance area. Three bars. The space isn't that big, so when you finally get up there, you know you're somewhere special.

Whenever friends or family visit Washington DC and want to visit the National Mall and Smithsonian Museums, I take them to POV Lounge for a drink. From this rooftop bar, you get an excellent view of the Mall (Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, etc). I recommend the Au Pair.

This place could great.....but it's not! Have tried on numerous occasions to stop in for a drink in the afternoon. There was no table service, only walk up service. Drinks were horrible and expensive. Who puts a salt rim around a lemon drop martini?

We're done trying to enjoy this view. Would rather walk to the next block to The Hamilton or Old Ebbits where the service is friendly and the drinks well made

Went here for dessert Tuesday night (1/29) because we found a better place to eat (Ebbitts Grill). The dessert portions were VERY small. I got the smallest 3 scoops of tangerine sorbet. Almost the size of melon balls. While it was really good, for NINE dollars, they could have been a little more generous. (All desserts are NINE dollars.) Obviously you are paying for the view here. A warm DC night, it was very nice.

I had a great time here, don't get me wrong, and there are not that many places where you get a view of the monuments and the white house. But, with such prime real estate, they could do so much better. The service comes with some attitude that their guests are privileged to be in their house buying their food and drinks. The drinks were ok, and the Appetizers were average. I enjoy the atmosphere at Old Ebbit's a couple of doors down much more.
