The hotel's location and rooftop terrace, Top of the Hay, make it a popular destination for hosting events, including the Author Series, where attendees get up-close-experiences with prominent international authors.
But, perhaps one of the hotel's most well-known spots is located in the downstairs of the building. The Off the Record Bar is a favorite place for guests and politicos to grab a drink. Selected by Forbes as one of the “World’s Best Hotel Bars”, the bar features a bespoke atmosphere with caricatures of Washington's political elite, both past and present. Red velvet tufted booths provide a vintage-inspired atmosphere to relax, while enjoying a cocktail, glass of wine, or small plate and the setting is the ideal place to be seen, but not heard.
