This casual pizzeria’s rooftop is a summertime favorite. Devour specialty pizzas and guzzle draft beers while soaking in the sunshine; there’s also sweeping views of the colorful Adams Morgan corridor. The rooftop décor is completed with outdoor heat lamps for winter time, so you can comfortably drink and dine even as the chilly temperatures arrive. Head there during weekday happy hour from 3 – 7 p.m to enjoy $4 rail drinks and $2 off draft beers.

The rooftop gets overly crowded during happy hour from 5 – 9 every day, but that’s because everyone knows Local 16 has one of the chillest rooftop bars in the DMV area – and one of the largest. Enjoy bottomless brunch on the roof with a variety of Afghan dishes, or just drink. The happy hour includes $5 cocktails like Maple Moscow Mules and Poinsettias. The rustic décor, unfinished wood floors, and colorful graffiti create an old-school ambiance.
