La Vie On The Wharf The One Stop Shop For The Perfect Instagram Shot

In Uncategorized by [email protected]Leave a Comment

There are lots of reasons to hit a new restaurant (or an old favorite) this weekend.

Perhaps you want to grab a well-deserved drink after a long week of work. Or maybe you want to snack on some truffle mac. But whether you’re looking to drink, eat, or get together with friends — it’s always a good time to get a few good shots for the ‘gram.

Here at La Vie, we pride ourselves on funky (and strong) cocktails, delicious bites, and lively ambiance, but we also know that we’re one of the best spots in DC to get a killer Instagram shot (or 10). Just look to our terrace for inspo.

But enough of us telling you about our perfect backdrops for your #selfie, we’d rather show you…

It’s not easy being green — but it is easy to find the perfect green backdrop for that mini-photoshoot you had in mind.


3. For When You Want to Shine Bright Like a Diamond


We see you shinin’! Whether you’re trying to show off your new bedazzled mini skirt, or simply trying to get some reflection for your poppin’ highlight, we’ve got you covered.

4. For When You Want a Pic With a View


Drinks with a view are nice, and so is food with a view — so make sure to get it on camera! We like to think we have some of the best views in DC on our terrace, and for sure the best views on The Wharf. Come see for yourself, and bring your camera!

We get it, your outfit needs a backdrop to match it. Thankfully, our 4+ rooms aim to give you the variety of color-schemes, lighting, and fixture options to provide the perfect setting for “the shot.” While you’re here, why not try them all? And don’t forget to try some fried artichokes when you’re done!

Don’t act like you’re too good to pose with some champagne bottles for the gram — or, for your Tinder profile. Besides, you can’t take a pic with a tiger in DC, so you might as well settle for the next best photo prop.


7. Or When You Want To Show Off Your New Ring


Not only are we happy to have hosted some amazing weddings at La Vie, we’re also happy to serve as the backdrop for all your engagement pics! Raise those hands high!


We know it’s nice to unplug and put your phone down — especially at dinner — but we’re also totally about “doing it for the ‘gram.” Besides, sometimes it’s just that notion that’ll get you out of your house, to a new restaurant, or even to a new city. We hope to see you (and your hashtags) soon! Don’t forget to follow (or tag) us on Instagram at @lavie_dc.
