About St. Francis Hall

St. Francis Hall is truly one of DC's best hidden gems. We are a charming facility adjacent to the beautiful Franciscan Monastery in the quiet Brookland neighborhood of northeast Washington, DC (conveniently located near Catholic University).

Built in 1931 and featuring romantic Renaissance architecture, St. Francis Hall offers a rare combination of classic beauty and modern amenities. The Hall can accommodate 250 people for weddings, banquets and meetings on weekends and weekdays. Ample, free parking is available for all events - a rarity for city venues.

St. Francis Hall is an especially beautiful setting for weddings and other social events. The Hall's high ceilings, romantic lighting and elegant ballroom chairs help create a stunning atmosphere. The Monastery's beautiful gardens and grounds make an especially scenic backdrop for photographs.

The Hall offers very competitive rates and the rental fee includes tables and chairs. Clients may choose from a list of recommended caterers or bring in their own.

We hope you'll call or email for more information!

    Exquisite service and in a beautiful and unique location!

    The staff at St. Francis Hall, in particular Cara and Edward were phenomenal in helping us to store items overnight and complete important steps promptly. The location is beautiful and unique gem tucked away in busy DC. We received compliments during and after the wedding about how memorable and beautiful the location is. The inside is exactly like a castle hall, much like the Hogwarts great hall could be imagined!

    Gem in Brookland

    St. Francis Hall is beautiful! A hidden gem in Brookland. Highly recommend! We had 90 guests and added bistro lights throughout the hall to make it feel more intimate. You could easily fit at least 150 guests.

    Beautiful hidden gem!!

    St. Francis Hall was the perfect venue for us. We held our wedding on the lawn and our wedding reception in the hall. It is a gorgeous venue with high ceilings and beautiful wood floors. There is an apartment upstairs with plenty of space and a full bathroom. The monastery grounds are the perfect backdrop for wedding photos. It’s located in the city but feels miles away from the noise and congestion of DC. It has free parking, a great list of recommended vendors, and wonderful staff. Edward, a recent SFH hire, is great to work with. We had a great experience and would recommend SFH without hesitation!

    We worked with the staff of St. Francis Hall for a winter wedding that went smoothly and without a hitch. We really enjoyed being able to design and style this beautiful venue for a winter wedding that included the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. This is truly of one DC's hidden gems!

    St. Francis Hall is a hidden gem in Washington DC. If you are looking to transport your guests to the Old World, and create an atmosphere reminiscent of an historic villa in Europe, this is the site for you. The exposed brick and hardwood floors will impress you immediately. The surrounding gardens offer you great opportunities for photo sessions. The stage is perfect for a band. The bridal suite upstairs is as big as any I've ever seen. The site has chairs, tables and linens at an affordable rate. The staff at St. Francis Hall is completely accommodating, and friendly to boot. The rental rates are incredibly competitive. You cannot go wrong with booking St. Francis Hall for your wedding so I recommend that you go take a tour today! Note: I think I would keep the guest list to about 170 (seated) at this venue.
