Top of the Gate DC is a vibrant roof bar in Washington DC, from this list, perched on top of the superb Watergate Hotel Georgetown. The rooftop bar is also called Watergate Rooftop Bar.

From the 15th floor terrace you get spectacular 360-degree views over the Potomac River, Key Kennedy Center, Washington Monument, Arlington bridges and the rest of the DC skyline. You can even wave to Virgina.

Luxurious and modern in decoration, with a large bar counter and lounge areas with fire pits, this is an ideal place for some vibrant and fun after-work cocktails with your colleagues and friends. The rooftop can also be rented for private and special events.

From the rooftop bar you can order delicious and crafted cocktails along with smaller bites, including some Mediterranean-inspired delicacies.

While a great spot for sunny cocktails in summer, Top of the Gate is equally (but different) great in the winter, when the Rooftop Skating Rink is open and the rooftop igloos are installed. Skates can be rented and the bar serves hot cocktails, all you need for a cosy winter day (or night) out with fantastic views.
