    Beautiful relaxing venue

    This beautiful venue in the heart of Dupont Circle is a gem of a location surrounded by gorgeous sustainable gardens, indoor spaces that can be customized based on your event needs, and a really friendly staff to work with. I had a great time working with Brian right before the pandemic lock down. We had a great time with our friends and family here.

    The Friends Meeting of Washington is an amazing green space in Dupont Circle. As a photographer, I love the beautiful simplicity of the worship room for ceremonies. The outside terrace area is a nice green space for cocktail parties or small outdoor ceremonies. The back garden and Assembly Room are undergoing a renovation from Sept 2018-May 2019. It's going to be an awesome location for weddings and small group meetings when finished.
