Top of the Yard Named One of the Best 9 Rooftop Bars in Washington, DC
The Hampton Inn Washington DC-Navy Yard might seem like a typical Hampton Inn, but catch the elevator up to Top of the Yard, and you’ll find an urban refuge with amazing views—you can scan the progress of the surrounding Capitol Riverfront development and practically watch the game in Nationals Park. There’s a bit of greenery up here in the form of tree boxes and Astroturf, as well as plastic wicker furniture and gas fire pits. There are baseball-themed cocktails, like a Triple Play margarita or a Sluggers Punch, with Malibu and Myers’s rums, orange and pineapple juices, and grenadine. You can also order a bucket of Coronas or Buds, bottles of Devil’s Backbone or Goose Island, and wines on tap. If you like ballpark food, you’re in for some good eats: think soft pretzels, Old Bay wings, tater tots, brats, hot dogs, and burgers.
