    Rooftop chillin

  • Team Faded I.

    Come do karaoke every Tues. Night at 9pm


    The rooftop is fun, especially if we’re in the mood to dance. Specials like USD 3 Miller High Life and PBR Sunday-Thursday and USD 1 off drinks during happy hour make it an inexpensive night out. Read more · July 1, 2013

    Come on Tuesdays for Karaoke starts at 9:30 great drink specials and new menu

  • Karri W.

    This is really more of a bar than a restaurant. The waiter informed us that they only serve small plates now. Rooftop is pretty fun, though. Bar tender/owner is all about making it fun. :)

    Choose between a jungle, an aquarium or an awesome rooftop. Pick the rooftop.

    The bartender Brian on the roof is entertainment enough all by himself. He's like a DJ of booze.

    Friendliest bartenders, best view of Adams Morgan, local hangout. Ask for Charles ;)

    Get their Belgian Sunrise for a good time. Drink slowly because it's heavy.

    The roof top bar is pretty awesome.... With good bartenders!

    One of the speakers upstairs sounds like it's going to tear the while building down

    You might not guess that this restaurant is also a beer haven, but check out their rooftop bar which offers a rotating collection of rare beers on draught, and ask if they have any beer on cask.

    BEST rooftop bar in DC.

    Carl Gieringer · February 19, 2012

    This bar is absolute garbage.

    If ur really hungry get the bison burger, it's on point and the rooftop atmosphere is awesome along with it being one of Adam Morgans best night spots

    "Mommy & me" happy hour on the 2nd floor, 5-8p. Music, lights, the fish tanks, short kids menu, and the bar's open. What's not to like?

    Rachel · August 26, 2011
  • Frank F.

    Talk it up with the bartenders, they're hilarious and always have great drink recommendations! If you're curious about a beer, just ask. They'll gladly tell you about it and even offer a sample!

    Frank Fuhrmeister · August 22, 2011

    Check out the Happy Hour everyday from 5pm - 7pm: $1 off beer, liquor, and wine! Read more · August 18, 2011

    Their home-made basil lemonade is phenomenal. (They even grow the basil in house.) And of course, the rooftop is a must. What better place to learn about beer from knowledgeable and friendly bartender Read more

  • Connor G.

    Owner bartends on the roof. He works harder than any other bartender I've ever seen

    Connor Gallery · July 10, 2011
  • Burger Days

    They've got a bison burger here though we'd gladly pass it up for a plate full of their fries. Those spuds are delicious. The burger, not so much.

    Burger Days · July 4, 2011
  • Tara F.

    Super friendly staff ... would come back just because of them!

    Tara Figueroa · June 21, 2011
  • Marghet H.

    Awesome bar! But don't believe the 4sq deal! The owner says he had no idea who put it up!

    Marghet Hager · April 9, 2011
  • Anais M.

    Try the new chick pea salad!!

    Anais Morales · April 8, 2011
  • Shelby C.

    Ask for Brian at the bar...he's wonderful. He knows all the beers on tap like the back of his hand and will hook you up with whatever suits you!

    Shelby Creighton · April 1, 2011
  • Shelby C.

    Get there early and go straight to the rooftop which rocks...if you come after 11 or12 on a fri or sat you have to wait in line for the roof which sucks

    Shelby Creighton · March 26, 2011
  • Shelby C.

    Ask Matt for drinks...he is very friendly and will get you whatever you need

    Shelby Creighton · March 26, 2011
  • Anais M.

    You have to have the bison burgers!!!

    Anais Morales · March 3, 2011
  • Dwayne H.

    Try the fricasse, rich, creamy and delicious.

    Roof deck is great, overlooking the strip. the dance floor is big and also has a great view. fish tanks are an entertaining touch, but seem a little outa place, an attempt and fail to upscale the bar

    NightScene · November 25, 2010

    10% discount to locals! Zip 20009

    Katie Lancos · September 29, 2010

    Beers are pricey but the variety here is very cool. Chill roof deck upstairs and a dance-centric second floor. Enviro-friendly as well.

    The owner just did an ironman. Snort the salt, shoot the cuervo, lime in your eye.

    Kiddie happy hour on Friday night is a blast for the toddler set.
