Hedy's Rooftop Bar

The top is where it’s at. Located on the highest floor of Hotel Zena, Hedy's Rooftop Bar is an upscale rooftop lounge serving vibrant cocktails, spirits and small bites. The side dish: Those views of the iconic skyline.

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+.

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.

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.

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;)

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.
