Locals recommended Perrys to us, so we headed over for dinner on a Friday night. We sat at a table on the rooftop, which was great. The vibe was Friday night fun, with lots of people obviously coming straight from work. We had sushi, mushroom rice and a chicken skewer, and all of the food was delicious, especially the rice,...

We went to the Sunday brunch drag show and had an amazing time! Summer Night is a hysterical MC and had us rolling on the floor laughing! The buffet was delicious!

My friends and I discovered Perrys while looking for a drink before our dinner at Roofers' Union in Adams Morgan (see other review). We really loved the elegant, yet warm atmosphere. We were kind of sorry that we didn't plan to have dinner here as the tables were set impeccably and the menu looked intriguing. Instead, we arrived just in... More

Came here with friends for drag brunch. The space is cool. We had one of the couch sets which was comfy. The food is a buffet. Not very good. But the drag show was a lot of fun. The staff is all very funny and sassy. The show is a blast. Great songs and performers. The MC is hilarious. Lots... More

Not impressed by the sushi - drinks and rooftop atmosphere were both stellar! Not a fan of the sushi with old bay in it - rooftop was very romantic and outdoor bar ever has plastic up for warmth from the wind - good happy hour drinks.

Awesome rooftop and happy hour drinks. Sushi was pretty good, I would have liked more interesting crunchy spicy rolls on the menu. Service was good - but the rooftop views, mild weather and good company definitely made for a fantastic ambience.

Adams Morgan has more than its fair share of interesting bars and restaurants. Perry's is one at the top. Great, extrovert staff, drag artistes in residence, a rooftop bar and rather good although large (a US tradition) servings. The tempura veggies and soft shell crabs were crunchy yet delicate. The sashimi was ocean fresh and full of flavour. A fun... More

The sushi and decor were average. The staff were terrific however. Location is a bit out of the way. Not really worth a look
