If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy Nationals games this postseason, here’s your answer.  The Washington Post gives us the story behind one of DC’s most inviting new rooftop bars – Top of the Yard.  The new Hampton Inn & Suites, located adjacent to the Nationals Park, comes complete with unobstructed views of the ballfield.  BBGM served as Architect for the newly constructed hotel and rooftop bar, which continues to attract baseball lovers and locals with its spectacular views and great atmosphere.

 

An excerpt from the recent article by Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post:

“We want to be a thing that fans come to see, but we also want it to be a fun place in the neighborhood for people to come and hang out,” Wittes said. “That’s really important to us, being part of the neighborhood.”

Central to the neighborhood harmony are the Nationals, and a team spokeswoman said the franchise doesn’t have any qualms with the hotel’s visual access to the field.

“When Nationals Park opened in March of 2008, the hope was that the stadium would spur additional development in the surrounding neighborhood,” Jennifer Giglio, the team’s vice president of communications, said in a statement. “With dozens of new restaurants, retail, apartments, office buildings and hotels, the transformation of the area has been dramatic, and we are thrilled to welcome all of our neighbors.”

The roof was granted a silver LEED certification for its “green space,” features a fire pit and seats 50 people.
