About Capital Turnaround

If you're looking for an industrial and historic wedding venue with state-of-the-art technology and trendy furniture, then you're in the right place!

Located in Washington, DC, Capital Turnaround offers you a stylish industrial venue to celebrate your wedding. Our property’s historic Navy Yard Car Barn was once the last stop on the city’s red line. Here, streetcars were brought to be serviced and rerouted. The building has since been repurposed and soon-to-be-weds like you can find a versatile and urban space for their city celebrations.

Capital Turnaround contains a number of unique event areas. Our Main Hall is the primary event space with rustic exposed bricks and metallic piping contrast which is ideal for a 100 to 300 guest seated reception. Its stripped-back design offers a unique frame for contemporary events. Additionally, we offer 8 lounge areas that function as bridal and groom suites but also for your guests to relax and mingle.

Our warehouse-style building can be admired most in the converted auditorium with 987 seats. Once the car barn garage, the hall now sets the scene for electrifying entertainment. Here we feature sophisticated LED screens, AV, and top-notch sound and lights.

Events at Capital Turnaround are designed to celebrate life, build community, and create joyful memories. We are currently offering special rates and discounted pricing to accommodate your budget to support you during the current pandemic.

Lastly, Capital Turnaround is managed by event pros IMPACT Collective. If you are interested in full-service, partial planning, intimate weddings, month of coordination or destination planning, our Dream Team at IMPACT has you covered.

Please schedule a call with us to learn more about our special pricing structure. Let’s see how we can collaborate together in unity and partnership as we look ahead to a promising future!

    Ultimate Venue for Any Event

    I attended an event here and all I can say is WOW! This venue has it all, from the industrial concept which is a planner's dream to the open spaces and huge auditorium, Capital Turnaround is sure the place to host your event in D.C. The event I attended hosted by IMPACT Collective showed the great potential the venue has to offer and truly made me excited for the future of events here in DC.
