What’s better than a rooftop pool? How about a rooftop pool with a menu designed by a Top Chef.

VIDA’s U Street Penthouse Pool is getting a makeover — to it’s members-only food and beverage menu. Top Chef Masters contestant Michael Schlow is making over the menu to include appetizers, small plates, salads, artisan sandwiches and healthy juices, smoothies and shakes.

The facility even designed a new prep kitchen to prepare the new menu.

Not a member but still interested in using the space? The Pool Club can accommodate groups of up to 299 and is available for private functions.

VIDA’s Pool Club is located at 1612 U Street NW. For more information, visit the website.
