I love a good rooftop bar! And The Wharf district in Washington D.C. has some great rooftop bars to choose from. Here are my suggestions for fun rooftop bars with the best views at The Wharf.
The Best Rooftop Bars at The Wharf
1. Tiki TNT
Tiki TNT is a Hawaii-themed tiki bar with a small menu of snacks and meals, a couple levels of outdoor seating, and tropical drinks. They even have their own rum distillery, Thrasher’s Rum, which the bar is connected to. That’s how you know they have great rum drinks and cocktails!
They have two levels out outdoor dining to choose from, but I definitely recommend the upper level for the private tiki atmosphere.
2. Marquee Bar at The Anthem
When The Anthem isn’t hosting a concert, you can relax on their rooftop balcony, Marquee Bar. This unique rooftop bar has great views out over the Potomac. They’re also open for Happy Hour prices after every show. This is one experience you don’t want to miss!
They have a limited selection of drinks and snacks since it’s just a bar cart. You can choose from a few cocktails and beers. But I definitely recommend their Sunset on The Wharf cocktail rather than their When Doves Fly one; it’s the much tastier option.
3. H Bar at Hyatt House
At this expansive rooftop bar, you can sip craft cocktails and order from their full menu while overlooking the Potomac River or the bustling Pearl Street. The rooftop bar is complete with umbrellas, comfy seating, grills, and fire pits.
