45 "Outdoor/Patio Situation" restaurants in Washington DC.
This new location of All Purpose in the Navy Yard is serving pizza and Italian appetizers on the water, and is a quick walk to Nats Park.
Make Solly's your go-to for a casual beer around U Street, and definitely get involved with the Sloppy Mama's BBQ they serve.
Right off U Street, Takoda has a nice (but small) rooftop and some good bar food options. We like it for a day drinking session or even a casual date.
If you need a pre-game move before a show at the 9:30 Club, Satellite Room has your back. Try with a big group or a date.
There are a few floors to DC9, but we prefer the rooftop that has a good view of U Street.
Head to American Ice Co. on V Street for some of the city's best nachos and a nice patio to eat them on.
If you’re looking for a dance floor around U Street, try The Brixton. And head to the rooftop when you need a break.
Surfside is where you go for Mexican around Glover Park. Take advantage of their roof.
Ristorante Piccolo is an Italian restaurant with a live violinist most nights. It’s over-the-top, but a good Georgetown experience to have once.
When you’re more concerned about having a good time than eating authentic Mexican food, head to El Centro D.F. in Georgetown.
Calico has one of our favorite patios in Shaw, as well as cocktails in Capri Sun-style pouches and shareable small plates.
The tiki theme at Clare and Don's is mildly cheesy, but the drinks and Mexican food are great. Head to the Falls Church spot for your next Happy Hour.
Despite being in the middle of Adams Morgan craziness, Roofers Union is a great restaurant/bar/rooftop for a casual drink or dinner.
Federalist Pig in Adams Morgan is serving some of the best barbecue in town.
P.O.V Rooftop in Metro Center is always full of tourists, but the views of the White House and Monument are some of the best in the city.
