They are trying to make something out of nothing. The views are only fair and frankly it's a lot of hype for overpriced drinks at a dirty table that was rickety. They had napkins stuffed under it to keep it level, which didn't work. This...More

The view from the POV Lounge is fantastic. You can see the White House, and some of the memorials on the mall! We had the hummus app and it was outstanding. Prices are a little high but great place for a drink and view!!!

The view is fantastic, but so is the food! The lobster on kimchi rice, the burger, the hangar steak, the crab pizza....everything was delicious.

Great roof top location overlooking the White House. Great service and simply the best burger I have ever tasted. My husband and I split a chicken burger and a beef burger and both were amazing. Would highly recommend

I enjoyed lunch here with my husband, brother and 22 year old son. Expensive, but a perfect way to relax after seeing the sites in the District. I had a glass of wine and my boys had beers and Old Fashioneds.

The crowd here is hit or miss. Staff services up weak drinks with ambivalence. Best part of evening is the stunning view.d Nice to go once, but won't be back...too many other rooftop bars to try. Crowd is a cross between birthday parties, bachelorette parties...More

This is a great location to see the many parts of D.C. that have been closed off to the public. We experienced a thunderstorm and the staff were great about pulling down the rain-shades super quick! We only had cocktails and gelato but they were...More

The views are wonderful from the lounge, no matter where you park yourself! One of the best places to see the Capital and surrounding points of interest.

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.
