On the Rox

Patio/Rooftop, Bar

Editorial Review

On the Rox isn't the most attractive rooftop bar we've ever visited -- it's basically a bar with four stone walls and no roof -- but it's a fun place to have a few drinks when you want the stars over your head. There aren't that many tables in the small and popular space, and only three have a view of the 18th Street action through iron-barred "windows." Still, there's a good-sized bar, and usually a lively, just-out-of-college crowd. If rain threatens or you need a change of pace, head through a doorway to the neighboring Brass Monkey.
