From a press release:

“Gerber Group will officially open its first D.C. property when 12 Stories, the newest bar in the hospitality brand’s extensive portfolio, launches at The Wharf in late April.

Boasting stunning panoramic views of both The Potomac and iconic Washington monuments and landmarks, 12 Stories is an urban haven located on the top floor of The Intercontinental Hotel.

The 3,500-square-foot space features industrial-chic design touches such as concrete flooring, wired pendulum lighting and velvet, marble, leather and wood furniture.

The bar’s large 13-foot floor-to-ceiling windows offer unparalleled sightlines of the Jefferson, Lincoln and Air Force Memorials, as well as the pinnacle of the Washington Monument and Hains Point. These sweeping views of the nation’s capital are destined to make 12 Stories the city’s must-visit, see-and-be-seen spring destination.

“With the cherry blossoms, boating season and the return to warm weather, we know how special spring in D.C. can be, so we’re thrilled to now be a part of that and to show Washingtonians this beautiful space we’ve built just for them,” says Principal and CEO of Gerber Group, Scott Gerber.

Gerber Group is the hospitality industry leader behind favorites like NYC’s Mr. Purple, The Roof and The Campbell, plus Atlanta haunt Whiskey Blue, known for its signature elevated nightlife experience and top-notch food and beverage.”

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
