Some weeks (when Metro melts down, when the Comcast guy is a no-show, when another motorcade makes you miss your son’s lacrosse game) you need a refresher in why you love Washington. Here’s where to find it: atop the W Hotel at a posh open-air bar with so-so drinks that are far too expensive—because the heated terrace at POV possesses that thing that makes any weary local stop and think, “Wow, I really live here.” That’s a breathtaking view of the White House, the Washington Monument, and lots of iconic scenery in between. So ease into a couch on this spectacular rooftop perch and enjoy. You finally made it home. Insider tip: More of a day drinker? Head to the roof for a Sunday brunch featuring pitchers of mimosas and bellinis. Open daily.
