Description
It takes a touch of genius to make things simpler, and POV at the W Hotel's genius focuses on just two things: spectacular tapas-style food and an even more spectacular view. Food comes so ... Read more
artistically arranged that it seems like a crime to eat it, until you take a bite: then it's a crime to not finish every last morsel. Desert is an astonishing variety of truffles, mini pastries, and petite fours, and while you're lunching, see if you can spot Lincoln peeking out from the Memorial, swarms of tourists gathering around the Washington Monument, or the Marine One helicopter landing pad at the White House.

I went for a night out in town with the ladies as it was really fun! The view from the food was really nice, and the music was perfect!

Great views!!! Can get very crowded, but worth it to go see DC from up high.

POV (Point of View) has an incredible view of The White House and the Washington Monument. It's worth popping up here for the view alone on a nice night.

What a great bar to go enjoy the view of DC!! The drinks were good although a little pricey, but probably the best view in the city.

The swanky POV bar at the W Hotel offers some of the best views in DC. Where else can you sip cocktails while overlooking the White House and Washington Monument? POV can be pricey, so unless someone else is footing the bill, I would recommend staying for only one drink.

POV is a terrace bar and lounge located on the 11th floor of the W Hotel near the White House. This bar has arguably the best view in DC. Grab a cocktail with some friends and enjoy the views of the George Washington Monument, the White House and downtown DC. This is one of the few places you can catch a breeze during the long summer months, but beware it gets warm up there at times. The bar selection is at the pricier end, however the Mojitos are a force to be reckoned with. This is a great place to see DC while enjoying a drink, and it is conveniently located a couple blogs from the Mall. Watch the tourists from eleven stories up while you take a breather.

Sure, the drinks are a tad overpriced (expect $15 for a cocktail) - but POV at the W hotel offers one of the best rooftop views in the city. You can get some great views of the Washington monument and the White House. Reserve a table to guarantee yourself a spot!

Great place to relax work and people watch. Appetizers are great so are the drinks.

Stunning views of the White House and Washington DC from this roof top bar. Very swanky, crafted cocktails, modern decor, and gourmet food.

My top tip for a bar trip in DC. Excellent views of the city, the Washington monument and the absolute best view of the White House from above. It's good in all weather as there is an outside and inside bar. Great for meeting snazzy visitors to the city (I met some of the top tennis players in the world that were in for some competition or other). Drinks are pricey but you're buying the view afterall.

First to Review

the POV is truly in a class of its own. In my humble opinion this THE place to get the view of DC you have always been looking for (especially now that you can not go up in the Washington monument). I've been here for several occasions and this place is just that-- a special occasion kind of a place. This is not your everyday run of the mill bar, if you are planning on eating be sure to make a reservation, if you'd like a place to sit-- do the same as well. Summer Sunsets are by far my favorite time to come up here. You'll meet some interesting people, drink some expensive drinks, all with a view of a lifetime.
