A recognizable marquee on K Street, the outdoor patio at Lima is open year round (tented and heated during inclement weather). Offering the best vantage point to observe the comings and goings on one of DC’s most bustling intersections (14th & K), the patio is a coveted area for Lima patrons during Spring and Summer. Cocktail servers meet and greet guests for drinks and food selections off Lima’s patio menu as they settle into a comfy spot of their choice. During the summer, guests are serenaded on the patio by Latin performers accompanied by soothing acoustic rhythms. A place to see and be seen, relax and unwind.
