The only public rooftop deck in Georgetown, the Observatory is a seasonal perch atop The Graham hotel. When the weather cooperates, it’s a beast: 3,000 square feet offering 360-degree views of the oldest neighborhood in DC and across the Potomac to Virginia. While there’s no dress code, per se, you should dress to impress. Even the hostess offers “chic” as the suggested attire. Be prepared to compete with ballers who spend: In addition to the usual wine and cocktail lists, there’s a cigar menu and bottle service. DC will never be confused with Miami, but this joint is the closest we’ll get to South Beach.
