Lucha Rosa
1011 K St., NW (13th Floor)

Maximalist restaurant decor is in—and this rose-filled rooftop bar atop the Moxy Hotel in Mount Vernon Triangle fits the Insta-ready bill. Baltimore-based Atlas Restaurant Group, which just opened swanky chophouse Parlour Victoria next door, is behind the 75-seat chic Mexican cantina (a spinoff of Maximón, their margarita-fueled spot in Baltimore’s Four Seasons). In addition to the beachy vibes and monument views, there’s a serious agave collection with over 130 bottles of tequila, mezcal, and lesser-seen agave-based spirits like Sotol—plus fun cocktails ($16 to $20) like a riff on a grapefruit Paloma with tequila, Campari, rosé, and pink peppercorns. A small kitchen turns out ceviches, salads, tortas, and five styles of tacos including carne asada and crispy fish. Dinner wraps at midnight, but DJs and drinks keep the party going until 3 AM on weekends. It all opens on Tuesday, April 11.
