POV (Point of View) Lounge is a trendy rooftop bar that offers an incredible view of Washington DC. I had very tasty drinks and good food, but you certainly pay for the view. It's definitely not cheap, even for DC.

Our server was helpful and the food was delicious, but the view was the best part! We enjoyed dinner on a clear night and were able to see what seemed like all of DC!

Nice place to sit enjoy views to the White House and Washington Monument. There is no kids menu, restaurant is pricey and the service is just ok. For me is not a place I would go back.

Views are spectacular but an after work hangout. To enjoy without having to listen to all of the “work” related banter and BS, have a bite to eat and you will be seated away from the bar. Recommend the cheese tray, blue cheese, Parmesan, chipotle...More

Obviously we went to enjoy the spectacular view the Lounge provides, but on the day we went in March they had clear flaps down, that were pretty dirty and we could barely see through them. Was a bummer, but would definitely want to go back...More

Hmmmmm . . . I don't remember seeing it on the menu. But it's a pricey place, and it's all about the view, so I would be surprised.

The views are wonderful from the lounge, no matter where you park yourself! One of the best places to see the Capital and surrounding points of interest.

Once you're ready to see and be seen, ascend to W Washington D.C.'s iconic rooftop bar and lounge, POV. Here, your fashion statement is just as meaningful as your political one, so dress to impress and break through the red tape of D.C. with views of the White House normally reserved for those elected to office. POV's design is inspired by three contextual insights local to Washington, D.C., social, physical and historical, which are in turn reflected through its design details. Our rooftop lounge features various seating zones, ranging from communal tables to VIP banquettes. No matter which side of the aisle you're on, you'll enjoy sipping a drink from the bar and experiencing POV's unique programming, which is centered on its passion points of Music, Fashion, Design and Cocktail Culture.
