Thrillist & Bitches Who Brunch Summer Kick-Off Celebration

By Punch Correspondent Mallory Sofastaii 

The weather the other night couldn’t have been more ideal for the Penthouse Pool & Lounge Party hosted by Thrillist and Bitches Who Brunch. Rooftop bites were prepared by Top Chef contestant Michael Schlow, accompanied by refreshing summer cocktails featuring Bacardi and Grey Goose. The scene was reminiscent of an outdoor Miami lounge, as the elevator doors on the penthouse level opened I was welcomed to the sight of cabanas, daybeds, an amazing skyline view, and trendy (!!) people.

In honor of the summer rooftop party, guests were asked to wear stylish summer attire, everyone seemingly got the memo, wearing bright colors, fun prints, and chic dresses.

The Penthouse, located on the rooftop of VIDA Fitness U Street, includes a 60-foot heated pool and stunning view of the city. However, hold off on making plans to visit just yet, the pool club is membership only. If you’re a member of VIDA you can apply to be a Pool Club Member, but spots are filling up quick. For all non-members of the fitness club, make friends with someone who is and you can accompany them for a $25 fee. I highly recommend becoming a member or at least befriending one because this spot is a rarity in D.C. – ideal tanning, themed happy hours, rooftop dining, private cabanas.
