In the heart of the evolving downtown of Washington, D.C., at the corner of 9th and F St, stands Riggs Washington DC, a reimagined hotel paying homage to the building’s legacy as the former Riggs National Bank. Built in 1891, the building is a sterling example of Richardson Romanesque architecture and is listed on the national register of historic places. Several of the building’s original features remain along with serendipitous details that nod to the golden age of banking.

Inspired by the bustling brasseries of Europe, Café Riggs offers traditional grace through a reimagined lens to bring a modern restaurant to D.C. Nestled on the hotel’s ground floor, the restaurant serves an all-day menu from the bar, café and dining room with executive chef Patrick Curran overseeing a menu of classics and innovative originals in a stately setting. The space extends outdoors onto the Patio, offering al fresco dining in the heart of Penn Quarter.

Step into the inviting underground world created by bar visionary Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr. Lyan) in Riggs Washington DC’s historic bank vault, where each drink pays homage to the spices, flavors, and traditions that make up America’s diverse cultural heritage.
