Looking for a summer hangout??? The Embassy Row Hotel just revealed its design plans for its new pool and its new menu. Phase one of a $15 Million hotel transformation is nearly complete and the rooftop terrace and pool overlooking Dupont Circle is the place to be this summer.
The new menu for the appropriately named restaurant/bar (The Rooftop), encompasses a 4130-square-foot, open-air terrace decorated with resort cabanas and lounge seating.
Grasp soaring views of the city, including the Washington Monument and National Cathedral, while tasting the delicious delicacies of recent Hell’s Kitchen competitor Carlo de Leon, who was tapped by The Embassy Row Hotel to design the new menu with a focus on bringing out the best the region has to offer.
Selections at The Rooftop includes: local whitefish tacos, savory local sausages, hearty crab cake sandwich, ramen burger, edamame cilantro hummus, dinosaur kale salad and a signature soft grilled giant pretzel accompanied with a sweet grained mustard.
Beverage fare includes a variety of fresh specialty cocktails featuring the Rooftop Escape (Tito’s Vodka, Cedilla Acai Liqueur, lime juice, club soda), DC Sidecar (Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Cointreau, lemon juice) and Spring Fizz (Bombay Gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, raspberries, club soda). The extensive wine list features selections from California-based One Hope Wines with proceeds of each purchase supporting numerous charitable causes.
The Rooftop is now accepting 2014 pool season applications for the exclusive membership club. For $500 per person, exclusive membership benefits include unlimited access to the pool, one complimentary guest and hotel room discounts. Limited day passes are available for the public at the hotel’s front desk for $25 per person. Hotel guests have complimentary access to the pool during their stay. The Rooftop is also available for private events with food and beverage options for up to 150 guests and perfect for birthday celebrations, wedding receptions and business functions.
