Savor the Summer Season

CityCenterDC is the spot to soak up every second of this joyful time of year.

Summer 2023

We’ve reached peak summer here in DC, and along with it, easy-breezy closet staples set to maximize your everyday; a bounty of fresh, ingredient-forward dishes to relish in; and all the memory-making moments that come with being in good company. 

Turns out, summer at CityCenterDC is equally optimistic. Everything you need to bask in the sunny season is here: experiential events for big and small (like free pop-meets-classical concerts and daily bubble clouds in the Plaza); equally bubbly style picks that’ll feel cool and right on trend, and a wealth of epicurean delights for every appetite (hand-crafted gelato or a bright salad—take your pick!) At CityCenterDC, we do summer right. Read on for your guide to things to do this summer exclusively at CityCenterDC. 

Seasonal Highlights

15 minutes: coffee run!
Dolcezza’s Coffee run & pastry

The perfect pick-me-up can be found at Dolcezza. Get your daily hit of caffeine with their coffee of the day, espresso drinks or tea paired perfectly with a pastry for a mid-afternoon treat (or pre-meeting re-fuel).  

30 minutes: lunch break, al fresco 
Fruitive’s Hail to the Kale 

Dig into one of Fruitive’s 100% plant-based and organic salads, like this nutrient-dense option topped with a little bit of everything: quinoa, avocado, edamame, apples and orange-ginger dressing. 

45 minutes: Grab a book & indulge
Tatte’s Heirloom Tomato Tartine 

Satiate your summer cravings with Tatte’s market-fresh tartine. Bite into juicy heirloom tomatoes over a pillowy goat cheese mousse drizzled with pesto—perfection! 

No Limit? Do it all and top it off with gelato from Dolcezza 

Indulge in one of Dolcezza beloved gelatos. Make it Mint Chip, infused with locally grown chocolate mint or Mango Sorbetto, an acid-spiked creamy take on the tropical fruit. 



The house’s iconic collaborations with artist Yayoi Kusama yield graphic, must-have pieces that are forever in style.


With a halo of pavé diamonds dotting its circumference, David Yurman’s Elements ring elegantly nods to the symbol of unity.


A hand-blown glass bubble encapsulates a stunning lily of the valley stem that Monsieur Dior wore for good luck at his own shows.


Swap your classic summer sneakers for Kate Spade’s dotted version which features a cushioned platform and statement black pattern.


Gucci’s unmistakable Interlocking G logo gets the vintage treatment with glass pearls that adorn this heritage-hailing hair clip.


A billowy, cloud-like shape defines this pair of lightweight slides from Moncler. Wear them as a sculptural, poolside alternative.


CityCenterDC’s own Piccolina is the perfect stop for some bubbles. Whether it’s a celebratory toast or a casual get-together, grab a glass at its Frizzante Happy Hour.
