History

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 represents the city’s attempt to rebuild and revitalize after this time.

    Beautiful, unique venue!

    Fathom was the perfect venue for our small wedding, and we couldn't imagine having it anywhere else. There really is no other place like it in DC, especially at their price point. Their staff are extremely responsive, professional, kind, and helpful. I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding under 70 guests. Perfectly intimate and convenient downtown location.

    Hidden Gem of a Venue!!!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Fathom Gallery space or the incredible team of women that work there. Fathom Gallery was the perfect venue for our 65 person wedding this fall. It offers a convenient city location but also gives you a quiet, tucked away feel with a beautiful roof deck space. The thing that stood out to us the most was how intimate the space feels, which is exactly the feeling my husband and I wanted to share with our guests in order to make them feel welcome. The interior is just as special as the outdoor roof space, beautiful exposed and white brick provides an ideal blank slate for you to decorate to your vision and with your colors, everything looks great against this backdrop! The venue is also really unique in that the rental includes a lot of tables, chairs, lounge furniture, the option of having an additional room and restroom on the third floor, a fun whiteboard where you can write your menu, or guests can write well wishes or words of advice for the couple, and the opportunity to hang 10 personal photos on the wall. We looked at many venues, and no other venue offered this much opportunity to personalize, and this was important to us and made such an impact on our guests. Finally, the women who operate at the Gallery are absolutely exceptional, the most pleasant group of women to work with which makes wedding planning a breeze. They are warm, friendly, professional, kind, communicative, and efficient. It was so easy to communicate with Emily and Kristen, I always felt like they were open to questions, and I never worried about anything related to the venue because I knew we were in good hands. This took a huge weight off of our shoulders so that we could focus on other things and enjoy the day! Would highly recommend for a wedding, a party, a corporate event, etc, I am so happy we chose Fathom for our wedding day!

    What a Dream!

    Having my wedding sight unseen was a tad nerve wracking. Yet, when I walked into the Fathom Gallery my heart was completely full! It was thee most intimate beautiful place to hold my wedding. Me and my Husband are forever thankful
