Hedy's Rooftop Bar
Like the 14 floors below it, Hedy’s tells a dynamic story of female empowerment. It pays tribute to Hedy Lamarr, the groundbreaking actress, inventor and film producer whose patents for radiofrequency hopping were recognized as the blueprint for Bluetooth technology. Cocktails reflect her effervescent vibe and recognize her silver-screen legacy — try “Golden Ages,” a nod to the era in which she lit up the big screen; and “Lady of the Tropics,” named for a movie she starred in.
At Hedy’s Rooftop, you can sip and savor poolside, or relax and unwind in a private cabana. It’s where you can not only take a break but live more boldly, as day shifts to night.
Hedy's is 21+.

Hedy’s has such a chic, posh atmosphere with laid back vibes. It’s almost like having a slice of Miami in the heart of DC. The food and drinks were so delicious and the servers/staff were friendly, attentive, and delivered speedy service! All in all, a nice experience at this hidden gem.
Really love the chill ambiance here! Great views and vibes. Drinks were strong and service was great!
The service is really slow, but food was really tasty.
loved the vibes at Hedy's and will definitely be returning. I forgot which drinks we had but they were all good. The food was PHENOMENAL. The crab and artichoke dip and the grouper sandwich are definitely menu items I would get again.
My husband and I decided to try Hedy’s for brunch during Pride. We figured a nice brunch on a rooftop overlooking the city to celebrate Pride Weekend in the District after the 2020 cancellation and now 2021’s more intimate events. We made reservations knowing there would be a charge of $25 if we didn’t make it within 15 minutes of our reservation time.
We arrived on time and waited in the hotel’s lobby before being escorted to the roof. After some confusion we were taken to our “seats.”
During Pride month you wouldn’t expect an establishment to place you back in the closet, but here we were. Sitting in a closet with a view of the Residence Inn across the street. And, by sitting, we were on footstools. Alas, our host realized we were missing a table and pulled up a dirty barstool between the two of us. We know it was dirty because the white stool was grimy with dirt and muck where folks would normally sit and place their feet.
Our waiter was nice, but explained they were out of Bloody Mary’s. My husband cannot have sugary brunch drinks/juices and had to opt for water. I would have had the mimosas, but their wasn’t enough room on the barstool for the juice and champagne. The menu isn’t the greatest and pricey for what you receive. I had the Caesar Salad while he had a $14 toast thing. Nothing to scream home about.
The service (not our waiter) wasn’t the greatest. When I asked for the manager, he came from the kitchen where he had been helping cook, clearly. We explained that we were disappointed and distraught at the environment. He promised to contact us to come back for dinner one night. Apparently, it was only their second brunch and they didn’t expect this many people. Mind you, I was threatened with a $25 no show fee. He also stated the barstool was sanitized and only grimy because they had run out of Magic Erasers. I was hesitant, but my husband left his name and contact information. Over a week later and we haven’t heard back from the restaurant.
The service here is amazing! The ambiance is unforgettable. We had the rooftop burger and truffle fries, OMG to die for. Will definitely go back and order that same meal. The view from the rooftop is great so relaxing.
Beautiful views, mouthwatering food, refreshing drinks all tied together with a friendly and inviting staff. Will definitely come here again!!
Great place with a superb view of DC. Pictures don't do justice, this is a must see in person! I recommend going around a time when the sun is setting.
Service was horrible.... the server never came over to assist us. Overall horrible experience. Will not go back even though we are staying at the hotel. We don’t even want to try out the pool after the terrible experience at that rooftop.
Customer Service was horrible. I've never had waiter so rude for no reason.
The views were amazing, the openess of the space was even better. We felt so lucky to see the clear sunset as we drank our cocktails and enjoyed our small bites. Then menu is small but the ambiance is perfect;)
This was a quick stop before heading home from NC to NJ, and it was worth it,my wife was amazed of this beautiful rooftop, nice setting, awesome drinks and food plus the staff very attentive 👍🏻up.
Very expensive and the seats weren’t very comfortable
Last night was my first experience at Hedy’s and it was fantastic! I love the vibe and I’m looking forward to additional outings here in the summer. The rooftop’s ambience was perfect and the drinks were above par. I wanted to give a special thank you to our waitress Melissa — her friendly demeanor and exceptional customer service made our visit even more special!
I made reservations for the rooftop and they stuck us in room with no view, we requested to be moved but they were not accommodating.
Very accommodating staff and the ambience and music were very good. Menu is a bit limited, but food was good.
Loved this new place! The cocktails and the view from the rooftop were amazing, the staff were super friendly, and the hotel art was incredible.
Melissa was amazing!!! Would definitely come back to see her
The servers were very attentive and the view was absolutely beautiful!
Fantastic service, gorgeous location, great food, and my favorite rooftop spot in DC!
I feel so bad that I forget our servers name but she is from Cali and was SOOOO sweet! She made our experience that much more enjoyable. Would come back just for her! Space is really cute and drinks were good and reasonably priced! 🖤
Hedy’s is wonderful. The food and drink, the ambience and the service are wonderful !
You’ll love it!
Definitely worth the experience!! Enjoyed the rooftop and cozy vibes of the fire pit. Food and drinks were great. Would definitely recommend for a nice night out!
