Spring and summer practically beg for a rooftop high enough to enjoy a whisp of a breeze that can cool you down. A view of something other than the black top of another rooftop is a bonus, not necessary but a bonus!

So where’s a gal to go? Well, there’s no dearth of patios, rooftops and beautiful views in Borderstan, but something new, something special? That’s where 1905‘s rooftop comes in.

I’m an unabashed fan of 1905 – especially the lamb sandwich – and their rooftop has only enhanced my love for the place. To the south you see the Washington monument. To the north you see dappled skies and the outline of apartment buildings. It’s up high enough for that breeze I mentioned earlier, and with a bar to service just the higher up crowd you won’t be lacking for a cocktail or glass of wine to go with it.

If I had to tell you one thing, it would be go, go now! And consider it your premier 4th of July spot because with views like this you won’t be missing a thing! Like the name says, the restaurant is at 1905 9th Street NW.
