And More Weekend Events at Capitol Skyline Hotel:

“Capitol Skyline Hotel ( invites you to slip into something more comfortable – a Muu Muu, sarong, some Surfer-dude board shorts — and spend summertime poolside.

This classic hotel, designed by Morris Lapidus (architect of the Fontainebleau in Miami) has turned a corner. A wet, glistening, chlorinated corner. It’s called The Capitol Skyline Pool. Inspired by a city that’s exploding with style, yet starving for some edge, we’ve transformed the grand, glorious Miami-Beach-like pool into an Oasis of “anything goes.”

There’s something for everyone. From affordable, unfussy parties for singles, swim-freaks, music-geeks and stylistas to Spike’d Sundays (a daytime grillfest with Spike Mendelsohn, of Good Stuff Eatery and Top Chef).

All drinks, all summer, are $5 or less. Capitol Skyline is located at: 10th Street SW, Washington, DC, 20024, just a couple of blocks from the new baseball stadium and minutes from the Navy Yard Metro. Below is our summertime line-up.
