Welcome to Hawthorne, a four-story bar and DJ-focused venue at the intersection of 14th & U Streets with an incredible rooftop overlooking the city. With five bar areas, Hawthorne can host events of all sizes. We operate with DJ's on the 3rd floor every Friday and Saturday.

Our rooftop has been named one of the best in DC by the Washington Post, Zagat, Conde Nast, DC Modern Luxury and Eater.

Hawthorne offers a bar food menu Friday thru Sunday and brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Brunch includes a bottomless drinks option for $26.99, offering mimosas, bloodies, crushes and Bud Light. A brunch entree must be purchased in order to participate in the bottomless drinks option.  Groups are always welcome and the roof is the perfect spot for post-brunch drinks.

Hawthorne has a vibrant, DJ-focused late night atmosphere. No dress code or bottle service, just an amazing late night experience.  

We show all kinds of sporting events on our 16 large screen plasma televisions. Hawthorne is famous for its DJs and 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 the U.S. Capitol. With two bar areas, the rooftop is perfect for large events, as well as just grabbing drinks and appetizers.

We love hosting all kinds of events! If you'd like to find out more information, please fill out our private event form and someone will get back to you very quickly.
