Top of the Gate
Rooftop AND waterfront? Sign us up. Top Of The Gate at the Watergate Hotel in Foggy Bottom has panoramic views of the Potomac and the city—and some of our favorite views outside of the National Cathedral’s bell tower. Post up on giant all-weather wicker patio furniture that can accommodate your table for two or group of ten. And many of the tables have gas fire pits for when the wind starts to pick up after sunset. If you’re trying to impress a significant other or an out of towner, this place has the views to do it. The truffle fries are a good option to soak up your $25 cocktails.
