    Best Reception Ever

    I had my wedding reception at Blackwall Hitch Alexandria, and it was my dream come true. I would highly recommend it for amazing food, too-notch service, and a unique rustic modern vibe that was unlike anywhere else.

    Beautiful venue + great price + awesome staff = win!

    We had a small wedding - 45 people total - and the Crows Nest was the perfect option for us. First, to find a venue in Old Town Alexandria that's right on the water, during peak cherry blossom season with good food and at an affordable rate is a tall order, and Blackwall really delivered! We only used the Crows Nest from 4:30-8:00pm (followed by a post-reception party at O'Connell's Pub down the street), but in that time we had cocktail hour, open buffet of crab cakes and steak, and an hour to mingle. That space + time was plenty because it allowed guests to relax while my husband and I went around the waterfront/Old Town to take photos and then allowed for some great photo ops once we arrived (the Crows Nest really photographs wells!). Second, the food was amazing - everyone raved about the crab cakes and Smith Island cake! - and the staff kindly had all the leftovers boxed up and ready to go promptly at 8pm, per my request. Third, the staff was top notch. I've worked as a server before, and it's clear this staff is very professional. Not only did the waiters have a plate of appetizers ready for us after a long hour of taking photos, but they also made sure my husband and I had full glasses at all times. They also made us plates so we didn't have to worry about going through the buffet line; they were so gracious and accommodating, we really couldn't have asked for anything more. Finally, Elizabeth (the events manager) was awesome to work with because she was so prompt and efficient. I'm sure I must have annoyed the last few weeks before the date (so many last minute questions!) but she was always quick to respond and provide updates. HIGHLY recommend this venue. You can't beat the location, price, and service.

    We held our rehearsal lunch for 30 ppl in the Crow's Nest, which was such an impressive venue. The event manager Elizabeth was wonderful to work with, and was quick to respond to all of my questions. Becky was the lead server the day, and she took GREAT care of us! The food was delicious and having our own private bar was great. It was a bit hard to hear the speeches, unfortunately, due to the acoustics of the space, but this was something we had anticipated, and certainly wasn't detrimental to the overall event. Also, the day of our event it was very hot and muggy outside, and it did get a little hot up in the Crow's Nest. The staff were very responsive and tried to make it as cool as possible, but because the space is upstairs and open there was only so much they could do. But all in all, I would definitely recommend this space!
