Sip & Swim at These DC Pools with Drinks

Need an escape during the last days of summer in DC? Crowded public pools aren’t the only option when the heat becomes too much to bear. Several hotels across the city offer day passes to their swanky pools, complete with trendy bars for patrons to drink the day away.


Better yet, some even have menus with a variety of snacks for pool-goers to enjoy, eliminating the need to lug around self-packed lunches (Omni is all about passion fruit this year, while Capitol Skyline is integrating watermelon across cocktails). Other pools are for guests only, but they can provide an excuse for a staycation on weekends that are too hot to battle traffic leaving the city. Whatever the reason, take a dip and sip a cocktail at one of these luxurious DC hotel pools.
