This place is pretty much a classic bar that happens to be on a rooftop. While the Derby’s beer menu has continued to grow over the years, it remains a no-frills, easy-on-the-wallet option for the Columbia Heights set. There’s a charm to the local feel of the crowd, which doesn't seem as trendy. On weekends, Red Derby offers a no frills rooftop brunch, with cocktails on the "are you joking" side of inexpensive ($3 bloodies, y'all). This is the place to blow your entire Sunday, rooftop drinking and taking in the sun.
