Off the Record

Off The Record was chosen by Forbes.com as one of the "World's Best Hotel Bars." Locally it is known as downtown Washington, D.C.'s best "place to be seen and not heard." Surrounded by caricatures of the city's political elite both past and present, Off The Record is a popular place for Washingtonians and guests of The Hay-Adams to relax. The upscale hotel bar also serves an inspired menu and superb wine selection.

Off The Record has temporarily relocated to our stunning 9th floor venue, Top of The Hay. This spacious lounge includes French doors opening onto a large balcony, where you are welcome to enjoy light fare and seasonal cocktails. 

HOURS

+ Open daily from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
