About 12 Stories
12 Stories is located on the top of The InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.’s new billion-dollar residential and retail development, The Wharf. Designed by SLDesign, the new penthouse bar is a sexy, modern addition to The Wharf landscape, boasting a nearly 360-degree view of The Potomac and the Washington skyline. 12 Stories features modern artwork by Paige Smith, industrial-chic design touches like concrete flooring, wired pendulum lighting, velvet, marble, leather and wood furniture, and an expansive 26-foot NanaWall, opening up onto an outdoor terrace. In addition to a stylish night out, Washingtonians can enjoy private and semi-private events in the beautifully appointed 3,500-square-foot space, which seats 170 guests and is configured into three distinct zones with unique vantage points of The Wharf and beyond. The bar’s large 13-foot floor-to-ceiling windows offer unparalleled sightlines of the Jefferson, Lincoln and Air Force Memorials, as well as the pinnacle of the Washington Monument and Hains Point. These sweeping views of the nation’s capital provide a one-of-a-kind perspective seen nowhere else in the city. The bar’s thoughtfully curated cocktail menu includes new spins on the classics and an impressive selection of innovative house cocktails. Complementing the drinks menu, which also includes several non-alcohol options, is a selection of elevated bar food featuring a variety of bites and small plates.
