From an email:

“On April 15, local hospitality innovators Eric and Ian Hilton will officially debut Skybox (1400 14th Street NW), their new 2,490-square-foot rooftop bar that boasts a stunning, nearly 360-degree panoramic view of Logan Circle and beyond. Located atop the brothers’ popular Players’ Club — an ode to 70s and 80s video games, music and culture — Skybox is also a nostalgic nod to the D.C. of yesteryear. The name harkens back to the heyday of the gone-but-not-forgotten Capital Centre, where private skyboxes equaled peak cool for some.

With its sports-inspired custom mural, vintage stripes motif & color scheme, massive wraparound awning and creative cocktail menu that includes new favorites “Red Hot Chili Pineapple Batida” (reposado tequila, red chili pepper, pineapple, milk and nutmeg) and the “Papillon Highball” (12-year-old rum, sweet vermouth, banana liqueur, bitters, lemon and club soda), Skybox is a warm-weather treat with unparalleled views of the Washington skyline.

Skybox will be open:

Sunday, 2pm-midnight

Monday-Thursday, 4pm-midnight

Friday, 4pm-1:30am

Saturday, 2pm-1:30am”
