Riggs Washington DC is a destination for the modern traveler, located in the historic former Riggs National Bank building on the corner of 9th and F Street. Paying homage to the building’s legacy, each of the property’s 181 guest rooms and suites is reminiscent of a private safety deposit box, while serendipitous details throughout the hotel draw on a narrative inspired by the golden age of banking. The heart and soul of the hotel is the ground floor Café Riggs – a modern, all-occasion restaurant in the tradition of the grand brasseries of Europe – as well as a lower level bar housed in the original bank vault from the internationally-acclaimed Mr Lyan team.
A historic setting where you can make yourself at home, Café Riggs offers a modern take on a traditional European brasserie menu, with a specific focus on plant-based offerings that evolve throughout the day.
Conceived by acclaimed bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr Lyan), Silver Lyan draws on America’s rich history of cultural exchange with cocktails and reimagined bar bites that incorporate flavors and traditions brought to America from around the world.
