Parc de Ville’s Rooftop Lounge Opens July 15
The Mosaic District has a vibey new outdoor spot for sips and snacks.
Nothing says summer like a rooftop bar, and Parc de Ville is unveiling its long-awaited Mosaic District perch just on the heels of Bastille Day. The breezy lounge topping Ian and Eric Hilton’s French brasserie opens July 15 with a wine-focused beverage menu, cocktails designed for sipping al fresco and an edited selection of small plates.
Feeling parched? Try the Brise de Fleur (Bombay Sapphire gin, St. Germaine, Domaine de Canton ginger, yuzu extract, sparkling wine) or a Freaky Tiki (light and dark rum, Velvet falernum, amaro, bitters, pineapple and lime juice). Another citrusy refresher, the Aperitif Rose, pairs Ramazzotti Aperitivo Rosato with San Pellegrino Aranciata and orange zest.
Chef/co-owner Brendan L’Etoile’s rooftop food menu features snacky options like charcuterie, chicken liver on toast, arancini with pecorino and lemon, oyster and prawn cocktails and truffled deviled eggs with capers and dill.
As happy hours, date nights and group socials return, the hospitality veterans behind Parc de Ville are certainly doing their part to feed the euphoria. Other Hilton concepts include Café Colline in Arlington’s Lee Heights Shops, Solace Outpost in Falls Church, a forthcoming second iteration of taqueria El Rey in Ballston, and D.C. restaurants Chez Billy Sud, The Brixton and The Brighton, among others. The Hiltons also collaborated with chef Erik Bruner-Yang on Victura Park at The Reach, pop-up wine garden outside The Kennedy Center. Read our recent interview with Ian Hilton here.
The rooftop lounge at Parc de Ville (8296 Glass Alley in the Mosaic District) is open Tuesday-Thursday 5-9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 5-10 p.m.; Sunday 12-6 p.m. Closed Mondays. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
