About Fort Myer Officers' Club

Fort Myer, one of the oldest Army posts in the country, is located near the banks of the Potomac River. In February of 1881, Fort Myer was named in honor of Brigadier General Albert J. Myer who commanded the Signal School for Army and Navy Officers. Prior to that time it was known as Fort Whipple, in honor of General Amiel W. Whipple, who paid the supreme sacrifice in the Battle of Chancellorsville during the Civil War. At the direction of President Abraham Lincoln, Fort Whipple was commissioned in October 1862. Today, Fort Myer is home to the 3rd U. S. Infantry Regiment, “The Old Guard”, the Army’s official ceremonial unit and escort to the President, as well as the U. S. Army Band, "Pershing's Own."

The Fort Myer Officers’ Club, known as Patton Hall, was built in 1896. General George S. Patton, Jr., commanded Fort Myer as a Colonel from 1938-1940, and the Club was renamed in his honor. The Provost Marshall’s office, adjacent to Patton Hall, is the building in which General Patton resided during his tenure at Fort Myer. The first military use of aircraft by the Wright Brothers occurred on the parade field just across the street from the Officers’ Club. Patton Hall is one of the largest and most prestigious military clubs in the world, frequently hosting Presidents and honored dignitaries. Several banquet rooms in the Club are named after famous generals. The Fort Myer Officers’ Club was the recipient of the Carroll Award for 1995,1996, and 2001, the Army’s highest award bestowed on military clubs.

Our Officer Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9am-5pm. Phone- (703)524-0200

    We just had our black-tie wedding at Ft Myer. Helena is a dream to work with and made everything very easy. They are a very flexible venue and could not be happier with the decision. The ballroom is lovely (standard ballroom) but you can do a lot to make it unique and truly beautiful. Their package deal is the best kept secret in DC. We used Royalty Florist and they flowers could not have been better. We hired a band and the DJ that came with the package was only okay so you may want to interview around and/or bring in your own DJ. The clubs food was delicious and the staff was helpful and efficient. Don't hesitate to book here. (For what it is worth we liked it much better than Ft McNair. McNair is on the water but we thought the ballroom was smaller and somewhat musty. Also, Helena the coordinator at Ft Myer is so good that, that alone is reason to go Ft Myer over Ft McNair)

    I am the MOB, am very particular and, of course, wanted the very best for my daughter's wedding. The reception was at the Fort Myer, Virginia Officer's Club, and was managed by Five Star Catering. It was beautiful, very elegant, and fun and the food was exceptional. The management went out of their way to make sure every detail was taken care of and yet followed through on our vision. The cost was extremely competitive with other venues in town and, I'm 100% positive that we had a gorgeous reception for much, much less than a comparable event would have cost in town. The event director anticipated our needs and was in constant communication with us. And, there is no more beautiful place than Fort Myer to have a recption. Thank you to Helena and Five Star Catering for a glorious celebration!

    FT Myer Officer Club is the best place to go if you want an all inclusive package for a cheap price. You get food, flower décor, DJ, cake, and open bar for a price per head. There were other vendors that had packages but did not include either a DJ or cake or something and the price was more expensive than the Officer Club. The food was delicious, I didn't do a food tasting. The open bar was great too. My wedding was in December so there were a lot of Christmas decoration and Christmas trees around.

    For the flowers, DJ, and cake the coordinator gives you a list of vendors that comes included in their package and you have to contact them and coordinate what type of flowers/cake/music you want. Then you inform the Officer club of who you chose. The vendors are very professional and I was happy with them.

    Helena is the best coordinator to work with. She was not pushy or trying to make me buy a higher priced package. She worked with me and looked out for my best interest. She recommended the vendors that came with the package and I went with them and they were great, I didn't even have to look at the other vendors on the list. She answered all of my questions. Got all of my details I wanted. I made so many changes and I valued her suggestions.

    I have worked at this Club on many occasions – usually the venue of choice for local military weddings or as a reception venue after a military burial at the adjacent Arlington National Cemetery (there is a convenient gate between the two properties). Because my experience has always been a good one at this facility, I have often referred clients to the Club when they were looking for a suitable venue. Getting through the base security only takes a few minutes and there is plenty of parking in the lot right next to the Club. In addition, their catering director, Helena Holla, is always a pleasure to deal with.
