The Sky Terrace Lounge has one of the best views around. Over looking the White House, and Washington Monument. Drinks are on the pricy side, but you are truly paying for the view. Try the crab cakes. They are out of this world.

When here while waiting for our table at the Old Ebbitt Grill and had a cocktail. Great place to go to take in the views of the White House wing of the mall. The views around sunset are amazing and the drinks were well made. They were a bit pricier then other places but you are paying for the atmosphere.... More

It is quite expensive but it is a unique location to have a drink in Washington DC. On the weekends it gets very busy.

Great views of the city. Best during the summer but always crowded then. Excellent drinks and the food is pretty good too. Nice place to take out of town guests for a drink before heading off to your dinner reservations

Lite menu, finger foods but you go for the view! Service was very good and accommodating. Drinks are a bit pricey.

My mom, 8 year old nephew and I went for drinks early Friday evening. The place was packed because two areas were cordoned off. The bartenders were lacking personality or were just #$@#$. The view wasn't great from where we were but was probably nice from one of the cordoned off areas. There must be another place to visit instead... More

An afternoon/early evening I won't ever forget! Lobster tails were delicious and so was salad. $40 minimum charge to sit and eat which is easy to rack up here but well worth the $$$$. Great music to charge the atmosphere and loads of friendly people. You need to convince the host that you need the table seating with best view... More
