Washington’s hospitality industry is rife with terraces and roof decks, but it can be difficult to keep everything in order. Luckily, a website called Raise the Roof DC has been pegging Washington’s rooftop bars on a handy Google map. The site launched in 2013 after a Reddit thread that attempted to assemble a comprehensive list of the city’s rooftop bars, but where Reddit dropped off, the site continued. Raise the Roof DC has continued to update its map, which contains dozens of elevated watering holes.
