An Elevated Scene

Dining in DC

Just when you thought your experience couldn’t get any more elevated, raise your spirits higher by taking the elevator up to our beloved DNV Rooftop Lounge, home to our seasonal rooftop pool. This urban retreat bustles with a sophisticated crowd — those wanting to enjoy a sassy cocktail, small plates, or a summer weekend brunch spot while overlooking stellar views of DC. The rooftop lounge is an insider’s secret cherished by DC locals who stay in the know, but during daytime hours, we reserve the space (which features an intimate pool) exclusively for guests of  Donovan Hotel. Whether you come here with old pals or to make brand-new friends, this beautiful space proves the perfect place for sizzling happy hour gatherings and elegant, private dining affairs.
