WASHINGTON, DC. - Nightlife empire-builders Eric and Ian Hilton know the power of a prime rooftop bar between their popular decks at Marvin and the Brixton. Soon, they’ll open their most towering venue yet: Crimson View, a 12th-story bar atop Chinatown’s newly-opened Pod DC  hotel. The 138-seat indoor/outdoor space opens to the public on Friday, with surrounding views of the Washington Monument plus the Chinatown and Penn Quarter neighborhoods.

The Hiltons are also behind the Southern-inspired Crimson Diner  on the first floor, and patrons will find a few similar traits. One of the best qualities to carry over to the rooftop are the wallet-friendly prices (fitting for the “value-driven” hotel overall). While other spots above the skyline charge a premium for the views, Crimson’s classic cocktails like negronis and daiquiris run between $8 and $12. Ditto for wines (all $8) and a list of sparklers that run from wallet-friendly Prosecco ($7) to splurge-worthy Champagnes.
