Light-filled tavern with floor-to-ceiling windows, cocktails & a terrace with river & city vistas. 12 Stories is a swanky and stylish rooftop cocktail lounge, located on top of the InterContinental – Washington D.C., in the equally hot and trendy The Warf district. Boasting an industrial-chic and glamorous indoor lounge with panoramic windows, as well as a lovely open air terrace, 12 Stories serves an amazing and close to 360-degree view over The Potomac River and the Washington skyline.
The first DC bar from the hospitality Gerber Group, the minds behind (among others) The Crown and Mr Purple in NYC, 12 Stories rooftop is a luxurious venue for fine drinks and fine views. The rooftop bar menu includes crafted and creative cocktails, both classic ones and house specials, along with sparkling, wine and elevated bar bites, like Rib Eye Skewers and the 12 Stories Burger. Open daily, the InterContinental rooftop attracts a mixed crowd of locals and tourists. Aim to be in good time to grab one of the tables at the not huge outdoor terrace, and remember that the 12 Stories dress code is smart casual.
