The Bipartisan and Yes We Can – two brand new cocktails at the newly renovated POV of W Washington DC, perfect for your Independence Day celebration!

These cocktails seamlessly blend the past with the present, crossing the party lines in true Washington DC fashion. Where else can you sip the crisp and cool Yes We Can while directly overlooking the White House? Or perhaps reach across the aisle with The Bipartisan, featuring a “blue” and “red” cocktail balancing on a functioning gold scale.

Guests can enjoy these cocktails on the regular menu or at POV’s legendary Boom with a View celebration on July 4th, featuring an open bar, complimentary food and unparalleled views of fireworks. Tickets can be purchased here and range from $275-$3,400.
