El Techo

El Techo A rooftop escape in the heart of #ShawDC, from the team behind Rito Loco. We pair the love of Miami vibes, innovative Latin American inspired cuisines, and killer beats. Come for a drink, stay for the tacos!

Wanted to acknowledge the saving grace behind our venue. My mother has never once blinked in the face of all the adversity that I have faced. She has backed me to no end. My mom never quit on me when life was extremely tough for her and I won't ever quit on building my dream that she has invested so heavily in. We have been busy rebuilding Techo on a shoe string budget by repurposing materials and using our on bare hands. Once we are allowed to reopen trust that Techo 2.0 will make my mama proud! Thank you for all your love, support and knowledge, I'm beyond blessed to call you mom ❤

Who We Are!

El Techo by Rito Loco; a fun, hip design on an 1100 square foot roof deck that will be serving up handcrafted cocktails and Latin driven tapas and entrees.

While the delicious Rito Loco dining menu will still be available, the El Techo menu, seafood-focused, will encompass many different Latin cuisines with the signature Rito Loco twist. Bar Manager, Bryan Tate, of Tiger Fork and Found Farmers, has delivered a simple yet refined cocktail menu that blends flavors from South and Central America as well as the Caribbean. Sticking with the Rito Loco motif, everything will be made from scratch. Homemade agave simple syrup will replace the overly processed sugars of your standard simple syrup to help relieve our drinkers from feeling full of sugar instead of alcohol. Family style bowls of paella and mussels along with fire-grilled prawns, clams, and three authentic ceviches will fill the tables for all our dc foodies. This will be an experience like no other.
