About us

El Techo, led by owner Louie Hankins, welcomes Washington to its tropical vacation-transporting design on a heated 1100 square foot roof deck, which can be enclosed or open-air weather depending, in Washington D.C.'s Shaw neighborhood. El Techo is serving up handcrafted cocktails, Latin-inspired tapas and entrees, and plenty of vacation vibes.

El Techo's rooftop is available for full or partial buyouts. Both El Techo and sister restaurant Rito Loco's menus are available for private parties or El Techo will work with guests to create a custom party menu.
