Reinvention of an Icon

Riggs Washington DC is located in the historical former Riggs National Bank building on the corner of 9th and F Street. Paying homage to the building’s legacy, each of the 181 guest rooms and suites are reminiscent of a private safety deposit box, while moments throughout the hotel draw on a narrative inspired by the golden age of banking. The heart and soul of the hotel is Café Riggs – a modern, all-occasion restaurant – as well as a lower level bar housed in the original bank vault from the internationally-acclaimed Mr Lyan team.

Café Riggs

All Day Dining

In the grand tradition of French cuisine, Café Riggs presents a contemporary American brasserie that reimagines classic dishes within a vibrant setting. Nestled on the hotel’s ground floor, the restaurant serves an all-day menu from the bar café, and dining room offering a menu of classics and innovative originals in a stately setting.

Silver Lyan

A Reimagined Hotel Bar

Silver Lyan – nestled in the former building’s original bank vault – is the first bar outside of Europe from Mr Lyan. Traveling the world, he sources the weird and wonderful, using bespoke techniques and experimenting with ingredients to develop new ways to capture flavor. Silver Lyan draws its inspiration from D.C.’s incredible depth of culture, food, drink, people and history to offer a bar that celebrates the notion of exchange – as well as a damn good time.
