Great Bars 2011: Tabaq Bistro

Though this restaurant and lounge occupies four levels, the real draw is its fourth-story roof deck. From this perch high above U Street, patrons enjoy a panoramic view that stretches from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. On warm days, the glass roof retracts so you can feel the breeze. A good selection of specialty martinis and mojitos muddled with fruit purées is a welcome reward after the steep climb up three flights of stairs.
