Inspired by the grand brasseries of Europe, Café Riggs offers historic grace married with contemporary cuisine. Serving an all-day menu from the bar, dining room and café, patrons are welcomed into the airy setting to enjoy a casual drink or celebratory meal against the backdrop of the space’s ornate ceiling and original Corinthian columns.
Step into the inviting underground world created by bar visionary Ryan Chetiyawardana (“Mr Lyan”) in Riggs Washington DC’s historic bank vault, where each drink pays homage to the spices, flavors and traditions that make up America’s diverse cultural heritage.
Silver Lyan is closed temporarily, in response to the increasing risk of COVID-19 but you can order cocktails to enjoy at home here.
