DNV Rooftop Lounge


Schmoozing with a view at our DC rooftop bar

Just when you thought your experience couldn’t get any more elevated, raise you spirits higher by taking the elevator up to our beloved DNV Rooftop Lounge, home to our seasonal rooftop pool. In summer months, this newly renovated urban retreat bustles with a sophisticated crowd — those wanting to enjoy a sassy cocktail or Asian-inspired small plates (with a must-try brunch menu), 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 a small pool) exclusively for guests of Kimpton 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.


The DNV Rooftop is currently closed for the Winter Season. Please be sure to join us when we re-open in the Spring.

DNV Cocktail

An elevated scene

DNV Rooftop Lounge sizzles the summer months, and lead barkeep Matt Allred keeps the delicious drinks flowing to sustain the happy buzz. This open-air, urban refuge boasts remarkable views of DC, a rotating list of craft cocktails, and Asian street food from Zentan.
