Crowning Georgetown’s The Graham hotel is this rooftop bar, which wraps around the entire building, so you’re able to view Georgetown and the city, including the Washington Monument. The fact that the bar is open not just to hotel guests but to Washington’s rowdy drinking crowd means you must reserve a spot, and you must pass the bar’s “Georgetown chic” dress code inspection (though we’re not sure what that means). It’s a comfortable place to lounge, too, with pretty teal-colored cushions and a partially protected bar area. You’re here to drink only; no food is served.
