Savor a Stunning City View at 12 StoriesSeptember 25, 2019
High atop The Intercontinental Hotel now sits 12 Stories, an ultra-modern bar with some of the most stunning views of the city. For those who appreciate a skyline view, 12 Stories needs to be at the top of your list as it offers a stunning glimpse of the Potomac and the city, all seen from the comfort of the air-conditioned restaurant or their gorgeous outdoor patio for cooler nights.
The menu is equally as impressive, with creative bar bites that pair perfectly with a craft cocktails. The tuna crispy rice with harissa aioli and ponzu and cheese and charcuterie boards are easy favorites, and they also have a burger and chicken sandwich if you came a little hungry. The cocktails are handcrafted with fresh ingredients. The Kilroy Gimlet is especially tasty, mixing vodka with lemongrass, lime juice and Thai chili agave for a little extra kick. They also have a fabulous brunch on the weekends if that’s your go-to meal during the week.
