A+ Experience & Excellent Venue!
I worked with City Winery DC as a vendor for a wedding and I loved the entire experience. The venue was amazing and the staff was really accommodating, ensuring that I was good to go while unloading, setting up, and loading. Brittany and her team were amazing and I really appreciated the open communication leading up to the event as well as during the event. Definitely looking forward to working with City Winery DC again.Sent on 06/03/2019

FINALLY, a BIG DC venue that has it all !
When we started looking for a venue for our 150-175 guest wedding, we knew we wanted to be in or around DC. We also knew we didn't want anything too stuffy or too fussy. That was really hard in DC! Everything big was not really our style. We wanted a more laid back vibe, with a little bit of an edge to it. We LOVED City Winery! It was a little bit rustic, a little bit industrial and a whole lot of amazing. Plus, it gave us the advantages of an all-in-one, like a catering hall or hotel, with a hell of a lot more character. The food was absolutely AMAZING (The short rib entree was to die for!) and our band LOVED playing at this concert venue. It looked, sounded, and tasted amazing. The staff was friendly and those in charge of coordinating the event did a great job. (I would recommend hiring a day-of planner to make sure everything goes seamlessly.) We used the wine garden floor (GREAT indoor-outdoor COVERED space) for the ceremony and the convert venue floor for the reception. Loved it!Sent on 05/18/2019
