For intimate gatherings of up to 12 people, we cannot recommend this sweet and chic Northeast Washington, D.C. private rooftop! It’s a 15′ x 15′ rooftop space with modular furnishings that include comfy sofas, chairs, pillows galore, and a TV for screenings. The host also offers the interior space as an add-on, as well as special lighting and karaoke equipment!

One of the best features when using Peerspace is its user reviews. You can peruse these as your looking at a venue’s listing to help you know if the space is the ideal fit for your needs. In the words of a Peerspace reviewer for this charming rooftop: “I booked Ben’s space to celebrate a milestone life event. The value of this space pales to the experience. My guests are still raving over the experience. The sunset across the city skyline was simply beautiful. Ben was beyond accommodating. He definitely delivered beyond the advertisement. Indoor space is the perfect complement to the rooftop decor/experience.”

2. Celebrate in a large gallery space with a rooftop venue

Many hosts are also willing to help with set up and answer any questions you may have. Check out this recent review that praises this rooftop’s host, Eduardo: 

“Excellent!!! Everything was perfect. Eduardo was super helpful and professional, he catered to all of my needs and answered my many phone calls from my very first visit until my party ended. The concierge staff was extremely helpful and courteous also. The space was beautiful, clean and spacious. All of my guests commented on the gorgeous view and how lovely it was. Thanks to Eduardo and the rooftop lounge my party was a huge success. I would not hesitate to recommend The Rooftop Lounge to family and friends and can’t wait to have another function so I can book it myself. THANK YOU!!”
