DC does love its rooftops. And a new rooftop bar at the Wharf??! Expect this new spot to be the height of capital cool.
12 Stories is located at the top — 12th story — of the The InterContinental Hotel at The Wharf. This penthouse bar boasts a nearly 360-degree view of The Potomac and the Washington skyline.
The bar’s cocktail menu is the traditional riff on the classics, but favorites include a Superchilled Negroni, GG Manhattan, and Casamigos Margarita that you’ll enjoy sipping alongside some higher class nibbles like the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich or a Ceviche style Crudo. And oh the oysters!
May starts brunch service, so plan to wake up early to snag those spots.
12 Stories will be open Monday-Friday, 4pm to 2am and on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 2am.
