A Reimagined Hotel Bar

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.


Hours & Contact

A Friendly Hello from Team Silver Lyan

The opening of Silver Lyan marks D.C. as a new international drinks destination, but it’s designed to be a welcoming spot where you can just as easily stop by on your way home. Order a Japanese Saddle (Sakura-infused Cognac, Roku Japanese Gin, leather bitters, and cereal orgeat) and settle in a deep lounge chair to take in the historic space, vibey ambience, and concise menu of bright and clean bar bites that is designed – much like the drinks – to be enjoyed with good company.
