For decades, the perfect way to end a night out in Washington was a trip up to the Sky Tavern on the Hotel Washington's 11th-floor rooftop. The W hotel has replaced the Hotel Washington, and the Sky Tavern has been reincarnated as P.O.V. ("Point of View"), a trendy indoor lounge and outdoor terrace offering a tremendous view over D.C.'s low skyline. Enjoy the unique view of the Washington Monument and the White House while enjoying a cocktail or a bite from Jean-Georges
Vongerichten's menu. While the view here is no secret, meaning waits are common, P.O.V. does take reservations. Popping by in the late afternoon may be a more relaxed option. After 7 pm, the venue only allows 21 and older.
