Roofers Union is a BEAUTIFUL venue space, yummy restaurant, and fun bar with a stunning rooftop view in the heart of Adams Morgan

Roofers Union in Adams Morgan opened its doors a year and a half ago. For those of you who have been in the city as long as I (Sara) have, you may remember the location as The Reef, a bar with a HUGE line to get to the rooftop and TONS of fishtanks everywhere (which may have been the cleanest part of the whole place). Back in the day when it was still cool to wear high heels in Adams Morgan (oh, wait…was that ever cool?), I will admit that I used to stumble my way through there every once in awhile. It was hard to resist the appeal of that rooftop. Plus, my roommate bartended there, soooo I stopped by on occasion.

Well, we are happy to say that there is no evidence left of The Reef at Roofers Union. Just after Roofers Union opened, Sarah and I decided to check it out. I think I must have said 100 different things along the lines of: “Have those big, beautiful windows always been there!?” “Wait, there’s exposed brick in here?!” and “This can’t be the same place!” Sarah had never been there (she hasn’t been in DC as long as I have haha) and thought I was exaggerating about what the space used to look like just a few years ago. Roofers Union is just stunning! We grabbed a seat in the first floor bar and settled in. I, of course, ordered a glass of wine – a tempranillo on happy hour! – and we had some delicious bites.

After we’d finished, we decided to check out the upstairs space. We wandered up and immediately fell in love with the HUGE windows. In typical Sara(h) fashion, we very excitedly started talking about how we could visualize weddings set up like this and that. Next thing we knew, we were having another drink at the second floor bar while gushing over the space. We just couldn’t get enough of this venue!

We couldn’t be more excited to share this gorgeous space at our upcoming Vendor Social!

Roofers Union celebrates laid back dining in the heart of Adams Morgan with a contemporary American menu as envisioned by James Beard nominated Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley. With floor to ceiling windows in the main dining room and a breathtaking rooftop bar, Roofers Union offers epic views of DC’s most vibrant neighborhood. Beverage Director and General Manager Dave Delaplaine offers a rotating selection of 22 beers ranging from simply refreshing to intriguingly weird. More than beers, Roofers jams with live music, craft cocktails, frozen adult slushies, and punch bowls. Perfect for groups of all sizes, including large parties and first dates.

When did you decide you wanted to open Roofers Union?

Award winning Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley serves upscale casual food at our sister restaurant Ripple. The idea behind Roofers Union was to offer a more everyday casual atmosphere with chef’s incredible menu.

How did you come up with the name of your business?

Our gorgeous rooftop and the fact that we wanted it to be a gathering place for the community. Hence Roofers Union!

What is your favorite part of being in this industry?
