The gallery was originally part of “Automobile Row” at the turn of the 20th century. It first functioned as a brake shop and maintains much of its historic architecture and signage. In 1968, riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. caused citywide destruction. The loft in much of its current state represents the city’s attempt to rebuild and revitalize after these riots.

Perfectly Sized Indoor/Outdoor DC Venue
Fathom Gallery is a hidden treasure tucked away in Logan Circle!
Location: Located right on 14th St above Slipstream coffee shop! Super convenient for Ubers, and there is a small private parking garage (not owned by the gallery) around the corner on Rhode Island and 14th St that is really accommodating for guests that opt to drive.
The Space: The space has tons of character with the perfect balance of modern and classic design. It's so beautiful inside, so you could go really simple with decor and photos will still turn out great! There is an outdoor patio and indoor event space that are both equally beautiful. We did our vow ceremony outside and reception dinner inside, and the transition was really easy. Having the outside space was so key during the pandemic, allowing guests to feel comfortable outside and socially distanced.
Service & Value:
- Working with Kristen was really fantastic. She is so friendly and was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. She was there to give me a preview of the space, and was there on the day of the wedding to make sure the wedding planner had the support needed.
- What I loved was that there was a set of furniture that is included (various tables, chairs, couches) that are available to use. We had a really simple wedding and didn't have to rent/order any furniture. The aesthetic is clean and modern which is really easy to dress up if desired.
- They had a contact for a "butler/bartender" who we hired for an additional fee to help with drinks and set up. He knows the space well and the service was very well priced.
- We did a family style buffet from an outside vendor (local restaurant) and Fathom was really flexible with us choosing the vendor we wanted to work with.
We couldn't have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding!Sent on 10/23/2020
