    Wonderful experience from planning to big day

    I would like especially to commend Sylvia Whitaker, the events assistant who was mainly responsible for our rehearsal dinner event. She was always accessible and had ready solutions to any concern that I had. Meg Sharley was also helpful, the food delicious and beautifully served. The chef and event manager were excellent and flexible when some guests arrived later than we expected...

    Thank you so much for the really lovely review Molly, you were a delight from start to finish!! We are so glad we were able to give you and your guests the perfect experience.

    Amazing Venue; Amazing Vendors!

    The DACOR Bacon house is truly amazing! Throughout our entire wedding, guests were coming up to us saying how impressed they were with the venue. It is a gem right in the middle of downtown DC. They have a huge, beautiful courtyard coupled with a stunning, historic interior. You will love it, and so will your photographer.

    Also, I cannot complement the staff enough. They will work tirelessly to make sure your wedding is exactly the way you want it. They are friendly, hard working, and generous. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we thank the whole team at DACOR Bacon for making it so.

    Lastly, it is very convenient to have the catering on site. It's one less (big) thing for you to worry about.

    DACOR Bacon House's reply:

    It truly was a magnificent Wedding!

    After postponing your Wedding due to covid, it was our pleasure to make sure that your Wedding Day was exactly what you dreamed it could be. You are the most remarkable couple, always happy and smiling thought-out the planning process.

    The DACOR team are going to miss seeing you, we feel like you are family now!!

    Great ambiance and food

    I'm a member of this club and have always loved the courtyard garden and pergola, which was picture perfect for the ceremony. Their Chef Moore is very talented and we dined inside the house under candlelit chandeliers, then went back out to the garden for cake and dancing. They provided everything - food, tables, linens, chairs, stocked bar, air purifiers. It was one-stop shopping, which made planning so easy.
