The Observation Deck at CEB Tower will debut a new Champagne-centric bar next week, inviting visitors to to sip bubbly from the area’s first 360-degree public observatory.

Located atop JBG Smith’s tower at Central Place  (1201 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia), the observation deck opened last summer with a 31st-story bar and cafe selling local beer, wine, and light snacks. The View, scheduled to open on the 32nd floor on Saturday, January, 12, will boast even higher vistas of the Pentagon, National Mall, and other local attractions.

The new lounge promises a selection of “premium” Champagnes and sparkling wines. The menu detailing its celebratory options is being kept under wraps until next week. The soaring space will also act as a gallery of sorts, featuring rotating works from local photographers. The View will be open daily starting at 5 p.m.

Accessing the bar via a glass-enclosed elevator comes with an extra tab. Tickets to the vertigo-inducing experience cost $22 for adults, with discounted rates available for students, military personnel, senior citizens, and children from 5 to 13. Kids under 5 are allowed in free.

The observation deck is open Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Rosslyn’s observation deck just unveiled a new flyover simulator, dubbed HoverDC, with high-tech bird’s eye audiovisuals.
