12 Best Places to Make Out in DC

I’m as much of a make-out slut as the next guy.

Last week I was talking to a couple of friends and we were discussing making-out, and the subject of the best places to make out came up. I decided it was high time that someone with some experience in this area spoke up. To that end, I’ve created my personal list of the best places to make out in this fine city. Now, this list doesn’t necessarily mean the most FUN places to make-out (those could include: the elevator at work, conference rooms, dance floors in clubs, etc etc). No, those are too easy. This list is for those romance snobs out there who also like to have a little bit of fun.

Making Out is Hot!

February is supposed to be a romantic month because of the whole Valentine’s Day thing. I call bullshit on that. Welcome to a Hallmark Holiday! No, I believe October is one of the most romantic months here in DC – the leaves finally coming down, the weather turning brisk, and Politicians gouging out each others eyes. Nothing is more romantic than watching a political bloodbath, now is there?

Joe, say it ain't so!

So, without further ado, here is my list of:

The 12 Best Places to Make Out in DC

You’re a tourist? I’m a tourist! Let’s make out!

Union Station – Met some hottie on the train? 10 steps into the gorgeous building and they’ll be begging you to shove your tongue down their throat. Already have a gf/bf and have an urge to get-it-on in public? It’s the only place in DC where you can basically dry hump, and everyone thinks it’s cute.

Newseum Observation Deck – Top floor overlooking the Capitol Building. It’s a great view, and since no one really knows the Newseum exists, you’ll have it all to yourself. Extra points if you ask the security guard up there to join in.

Haupt Garden – So you are walking around the Sackler, and you meet some hot little number who is ALSO a connoisseur of The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur. You want to make out, but you don’t know where? Well there’s a great a little garden right outside. It’s pretty any time of year and has tons of little nooks and crannies to swap some saliva.

Need a quick snog with a co-worker? Go here!

Secret Victorian Park behind the Brewmaster’s Castle – It’s only open during the day from late spring until early fall. So, if you and the hot new intern are tired of leaving butt prints on conference room tables, impress her with your DC knowledge by bringing her to this little park on Sunderland between 19th and New Hampshire Ave. It’s pretty, it’s secluded, it has park benches that can’t be seen from the street, and no one knows its there. Perfect recipe for some office naughtiness!

Gem RoomSmithsonian Natural History Museum – What’s more romantic than being ensconced by priceless gems in a dark room? This place is the perfect spot for a secret tryst. Problem: Tourists flock here like DC meter maids on my car. Solution: Go here during the week when tourists aren’t around! No one will recognize you, and you can find a nice dark corner to get some action.

Secluded bench around the Tidal Basin – It’s beautiful all year round – has a ton of benches, and other than during the cherry blossom festival, no one walks around here during the day. Bored government contractor? It’s just a moment from your office – so grab a friend and get your osculation on!

The Insider’s Guide…..

Bishop’s Garden – It’s quiet, secluded, and filled with crosses. So what’s that mean? It’s right behind the National Cathedral! So, if you are a heretic (like me!) or if men in robes and crosses get you all heated up – come here for a fun time! Oh, and it’s also open 24 hours – so you can get it on AND go to confessional, all in 1 quick trip!

Bishop's Garden

Tutor Place – Pop your collar and go check out gardens at this public mansion in Georgetown for some preppy fun. It’ll cost you $2 a person for a “self-guided tour” of all the little benches and fountains in the garden. No one knows it exists, so that means its “exclusive.”

Cairo Roof Deck – Come visit this historic landmark on Q between 16th and 17th for the best unobstructed 360 degree views of DC. Can’t get in because of the “security?” Just knock on the window at the front door, and pretend you are going to visit your “best buddy” in apartment 1008. Take the elevator to the top floor, turn right, and take the stairwell up to the roof deck.

Take your date here, and you are guaranteed to get laid.

Balcony at the Uptown Theater – Feeling nostalgic? Flash back to your high school days of being naughty at the movies by taking your significant fuck-buddy to this DC institution and rock out with your cock out in the balcony section.

FDR Memorial – This is one of my favorite places in all of DC. The Tidal Basin, waterfalls, great lighting, and romantic quotes about World War II. It might be clichΓ© – but who the fuck cares? Come for a quiet stroll and share a romantic kiss. Extra points if you go skinny dipping in the waterfalls!

Sunset, waterfalls, & quotes about WWII.  It's' the make-out trinity!

Kennedy Center Roof Deck at Sunset – Have a touch of class in you? Check out the beautiful views of the Potomac, Georgetown, and the Rosslyn skyline before you go to see a show. Extra points if you eat at the restaurant and sneak a couple of glasses of wine out to sip on. Careful though, it gets a bit windy/chilly up here – so hold your date close.

Honorable mentions: At the top of Meridian Park overlooking the waterfall fountain, along the Canal in Georgetown, on the Key Bridge at sunrise/sunset, and at sunrise at the Potomac Scenic Overlook off the GW parkway North.

  1. What is this making out you speak of?

    And ps, if you have a girlfriend, isn’t she contractually obligated to have sex with you? I didn’t know you needed all the work…

    Good point on the gf thing, I’ve made the edit πŸ˜‰ Hmmm what’s making out? I think its something like this:

  2. Great post. Though I would have added the Franciscan Monastery into this list. Talk about seclusion.

    Thanks! Good add – though ironic that this particular recommendation is being made from 1 jew to another πŸ˜‰

  3. I know where the top places in woodbridge are ha my parties and the playground across from my apartment lol…….

    Top of the Capitol Building a great place too, but ya gotta have authorti (Cartman voice) to get up there πŸ˜‰

    Ooooh hoodbridge. Nice! I’ll look forward to you publishing that list soon.

  4. lmao ya know a post in your honor tommorow of just that — just for you!!!!!

    Sweeeeeeet. I’m looking forward to it!

  5. OMG I think we’ve gone to a bunch of those places together… and NOT made out!

    Srsly, thanks for showing me Tutor Place and not trying to kiss me while we were there… LOL!

    Haha I know! What was I thinking? πŸ˜‰

  6. How dare you tell people where to go and engage in public displays of affection?!

    ::sneakily saves post for future ref::

    I know, I’m a bad person. My devious plan is really to be able to see more people gettin it on in public. haha

  7. What, no Starbucks restroom? What knocked it off the list? Was it the large key holder?

    Haha nice πŸ˜‰ While we all love a quick bonking in a starbucks restroom, unfortunately it’s not a DC specific location, unless there is a very special DC starbucks you’d like to bring up here πŸ˜‰

  8. You know, I have been to VERY few of these. That’s a sin! How could I have not gone to places deemed as being the best make-out locales in DC? I think I need to take a hot guy with me to check them out! πŸ™‚

    Not just a hot guy, but a thoughtful and romantic guy too! (err I don’t mean 3 guys, I mean one who has all of those attributes…. haha)

  9. I once made out on the obstacle course at the Naval Academy. But that isn’t in DC so it doesn’t count for your list. But is WAS public and during Fourth of July and he was a cadet.. so it was all sorts of naughty.

    Can’t add it to the list, but it sounds like a great story!! Good job!

  10. I prefer the Residence Inn in Dupont Circle. After the *make-out* I can just hop on the bus and go home. It’s easy as pie (as am I).

    Good choice! And I love pie too πŸ˜‰

  11. The Arboretum has a lot of shady, semi-secluded benches.

    Hey, send me an e-mail at lacochran812(at)gmail(dot)com so I can include you on the happy hour distribution.

    The Arboretum is a great choice… I had so many parks already that I wasn’t sure I should add it. We’ll add it as #13 πŸ˜‰ And I’ll email ya!

  12. Nah… keep your tongues off each other while in public. No one wants to see it, really.

    I don’t completely disagree with you here…. that’s why many of the places I picked are pretty isolated.

  13. No where in SouthEast?? the precint steps?

    Southeast? True. I’m scared to even -say- Southeast outloud for fear I might get mugged…. so unfortunately I can’t add it to the list since I’m definitely too much of a wus to go there. But if you’d like to mention some specific spots, I’d be more than grateful.

  16. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  17. I am in need of the best places to make out in the Dulles Airport…..

  18. This is exactly such a quality resource that you’re sharing and you also offer it away completely free. I like to looking at web pages which know the significance of presenting a prime reference for nothing. I honestly enjoyed going through your site. Thank you!
