12 Stories at InterContinental DC

12 Stories at InterContinental DC

Washington, United States

Nightclubs and Lounges

  • The InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.’s new billion-dollar residential and retail development, The Wharf, boasts a 3,500-square-foot rooftop cocktail spot, dubbed 12 Stories.
  • The drinking destination marks the D.C. debut for Gerber Group, the prominent owner-operator of behind the trendiest bars and restaurants in New York, Atlanta and Santiago, Chile.
  • Designed by interior designers SLDesign, 12 Stories features modern artwork by Paige Smith, industrial-chic design touches like concrete flooring, wired pendulum lighting, velvet, marble, leather and wood furniture, and an expansive 26-foot NanaWall, opening up onto an outdoor terrace.
  • The Gerber Group requested an audio system from longtime partner integrator Global Audio Systems – who had already found success installing K-array in Gerber Group's Grand Central Station lounge, The Campbell – a system that could deliver a high SPL in a compact enclosure.
  • Together with hotel management, the team selected K-array’s Kayman-KY102 line array loudspeakers for its amazing horizontal coverage and its 4” closely-spaced drivers that allow for better frequency response in the lower bandwidth.
  • Given its similar characteristics yet in a smaller frame, the Python-KP52 was also selected for distribution throughout the venue.
  • The Gerber Group and InterContinental Hotel were ecstatic with the sound and look of the final system, which is comprised of 7 Kaymans and 4 Pythons.
