Once you’re ready to see and be seen, ascend to POV, W Washington’s DC iconic rooftop lounge. Ensure you are dressed to impress, as your fashion statement is just as meaningful as your political one. Break through the red tape of DC with views of the White House normally reserved for those elected to office. Inspired by three contextual insights local to D.C., social, physical and historical, the design of POV reflects these insights through its design details. Designed to transition from casual daytime brunches overlooking the monuments of D.C., to a hub of nightlife and cocktail culture at night, POV features various seating zones ranging from communal tables to VIP banquettes. The space creates an intersection where the various parties of D.C. can mingle and enjoy the W Washington DC’s unique programming centered on its passion points of Music, Fashion, Design and Cocktail Culture.
