**Silver Lyan is temporarily closed**
Riggs’ lower level is home to Silver Lyan, a subterranean cocktail bar by internationally-acclaimed bartender and Lore Group’s Global Bar Innovator Ryan Chetiyawardana (“Mr Lyan”). In signature Lyan fashion (and as evident with Lyaness at Sea Containers London as well as Super Lyan at Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam), the concept reimagines the traditional hotel bar, delivering something wildly disruptive to the current D.C. landscape – a groundbreaking blend of classical and kitsch styles. The brand’s very first U.S. venture, Silver Lyan focuses on the history of cultural exchange in America, bringing elevated irreverence to the grand space to pay tribute to the past, present and future of the country – and the storied building.
Silver Lyan also features a semi-private Cabinet Room for intimate cocktail events up to 25, and a private Champagne Booth for small gatherings up to 8.
