With four levels and multiple bar areas, Hawthorne is a go-to restaurant for private events. The venue can host private events and private parties of all kinds and sizes, ranging from corporate events to casual happy hours, fundraisers and birthday parties. As opposed to many other DC event venues, there's never a room rental fee and Hawthorne makes planning events easy. For more information, please submit an event form.
Hawthorne is famous for having one of the best rooftops in the Washington DC area. The rooftop is retractable, can be utilized in all weather and has views of DC landmarks such as the Washington Monument and U.S. Capitol. With two bar areas, the rooftop is perfect for large events, as well as just grabbing drinks and appetizers. Zagat named it one of the top 10 hottest rooftop bars in May 2016 and it was on the DC Modern Luxury list of Top 5 2016 summer rooftops.
Hawthorne is open at 5:00 pm Tuesday thru Friday and opens at 11:30 on Saturday and Sunday for brunch. Brunch is served on weekends until 4 pm on the first two floors, with the rooftop bar open for groups and bar service.
