Get Outside and Enjoy the Fresh Air!

With so many outdoor activities in and around our luxury apartments in Bethesda, life is like a breath of fresh air.

Gallery Bethesda II's rooftop is home to an unbelievable assortment of outdoor amenities; and the surrounding neighborhood is equally rife with enough outdoor activities and events to keep you busy constantly.


  • While the days are still warm, take a refreshing dip in our resort-class jetted pool.
  • When the nights get cooler, keep warm in front of the ever-shifting flame of our fire feature.
  • Invite your friends up the elevator for delicious barbeque, hot off the grill. Or, fire up the rooftop pizza ovens.
  • Bring your four-legged best friend up for a walk in the rooftop dog park.
