The townhouse suite experience will feature interiors designed by D.C.- based and internationally renowned designer Thomas Pheasant and furnished with thoughtfully curated works of art created by local artists and photographers.  


Each townhouse will offer approximately 1,000 square feet of living space, including luxurious bathrooms and well-appointed kitchens, making them ideal retreats for guests seeking extended stays or a quick weekend getaway.


 “At Rosewood Washington, D.C., we have always pride ourselves on offering our guests a local, authentic experience.  Through the addition of the townhouses and an exciting new restaurant concept, we will elevate our Sense of Place ethos even further by offering visitors an immersive Georgetown experience not available anywhere else in the capital,” said Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.


Upon reopening, the hotel will also debut a new restaurant – CUT by Wolfgang Puck.  First launched in 2006 in Beverly Hills before expanding to Las Vegas, New York, London, Singapore, Bahrain, and Doha.  Helmed by Executive Chef Andrew Skala, CUT at Rosewood Washington, D.C. will reflect the distinct spirit and sensibility of the Mid-Atlantic, with both the menu and design drawing inspiration from the surrounding Georgetown neighborhood.

Both will serve custom cocktails, wine, artisan beers, and an extensive menu of food items.

On Saturday, July 21, the cafe will host a Community Day, where the public is invited to enjoy a coffee, on the house. Food and merchandise will also be available for purchase, and all sales will go to the cafe’s community partner, charity: water, a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Guests may also support charity: water by providing donations directly to the organization upon purchases at any Blue Bottle cafe in Washington, D.C.


Every Blue Bottle cafe is built with an understanding of the surrounding environment, including its history, population, and geography. Cafes are both a unique representation of the Blue Bottle craft and a respectful tribute to the communities in which they are located. The Wharf cafe was designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.  

Blue Bottle Coffee was founded by James Freeman in Oakland, California, in 2002. A self-declared coffee lunatic, James hand-roasted beans in a 183 square-foot potting shed and then delivered them to friends from his Peugeot wagon. Fifteen years later, Blue Bottle is now a small but mighty network of cafes in eight cities in the United States and Japan.
