    Great Space, Great Team, Great Price, Great Wedding

    Mess Hall was the perfect location for our wedding, and we’re so pleased with how the event went. The space is both hip and classy and easily accommodated our 70-person reception. Plenty of space to sit and to dance. The wine/beer package was good quality and reasonably priced. Mess Hall also set us up with a partner caterer, Sloppy Mama’s, which served mind-numbingly delicious barbecue. We’re very happy to have chosen Mess Hall for our wedding. Al and his team are honest, flexible, and professional. It was a pleasure working with them on the event. Highly recommended!

    Beautiful space and friendly service

    The space is unique, beautiful, warm, and inviting. Perfect for a relatively casual event. And the staff was personable and very helpful.

    Highly recommend Mess Hall!

    We had our wedding reception at Mess Hall in October and could not have been happier with our experience! We worked directly with Al and Ann (who are both wonderful) to plan the reception. Mess Hall is such a unique space with a nice amount of flexibility that helps to really personalize your event. By having our reception at Mess Hall, we were able to connect with our caterers, Qui Qui Catering, who were absolutely amazing (also highly recommended) and already familiar with the space as members of the community. We appreciated that Mess Hall had bar packages to add on and found a phenomenal bartender for our day. We were extremely happy with the package we selected, which included local beers and liquors and three curated wines. As others have mentioned, the space itself is already visually appealing and does not require a ton of decorations to look great. The main space was naturally set up for cocktails, dinner, and our DJ and dance floor while giving guests enough space to mingle.
    Mess Hall was by far the best value of any other locations we researched in the DC-area. Throughout the planning process, we were consistently amazed at how we were able to have the event we wanted and stay within budget. Our guests all commented on what a fun and memorable location it was and we all had an absolute blast! We still talk about how fun the evening was and how we need another reason to throw an event at Mess Hall :) My husband and I highly recommend Mess Hall for your event.
