The Rooftop at 400 N Capitol is Washington’s premier rooftop venue featuring spectacular views of the U.S. Capitol, Union Station and The Washington Monument.
The design of this new rooftop began in May, 2011 and started with a gravel rooftop similar to the other tower at this location. The building is located at 400 – 444 North Capitol Street, NW in the heart of Capitol Hill. The owners of the building wanted to give visitors an opportunity to view one of Washington’s most spectacular views of the Nation’s Capitol. There are just a handful of rooftop venues in Washington that offer great views and all of them are different. We are fortunate to have a view that pans 300 degrees from Union Station to the Library of Congress, the Capitol Dome and across to the Washington Monument. And anyone who has visited Washington knows that when the sun sets and the monuments light up the view is even more spectacular. From this vantage point you feel like you can reach out and touch the sky and marvel and the beauty that is Washington!
The architect and contractors for the project worked diligently to create an atmosphere that would convey the beauty of Capitol Hill. Stainless steel and glass railings surround the rooftop, allowing for a unobstructed view. IPAY flooring gave a nautical feel to the decking that encompasses the entire rooftop. And unique to Washington is our retractable awning that covers over 2,100 sq. feet of the rooftop. This area has removable clear side panels that can be opened as needed. This space also has heating and air-conditioning that allows it to be used year round for events. As we say, our Plan B for weather is always in place on The Rooftop. The enclosed space can accommodate 200 guests for a seated dinner, or 300 for a cocktail reception. The total guest capacity on the rooftop is 470. In addition there is also a lower terrace available for receptions or dinners that can accommodate up to 300 guests.
We are very excited to be able to offer this location for your next event. Come and see us and HOST THE EVENT OF A LIFETIME on The Rooftop at 400 N Capitol!

Excellent venue and Delmy is the best!
Amazingly unique venue in DC w/ best onsite coordinator!
We knew immediately this was the venue for us. First, the location is perfect, especially for couples that have a lot of people traveling in from out of town as we did. Multiple airports, train systems, hotels, etc to make traveling in easy breezy. Not to mention the venue is right across the street from Union Station, making getting around the whole DMV area very convenient.
We also knew this was our spot because of the views! Stunning views of the Capitol and Union Station make this a venue that will just make your day that much more special. You can also see the Washington Monument. My husband is a veteran and I am a lawyer, so this felt very fitting for our backgrounds.
Finally, I cannot say enough about Delmy!! She is the onsite coordinator and helped so much in getting the foundation set for our wedding. She pointed us in directions for caterers, DJs, photographers, lighting, etc. She was amazing and so supportive when we had to move our wedding back multiple times due to COVID. It was very stressful for us but each time she was super prompt in giving us available options.
With her support, we could have planned the wedding ourselves but after moving it back that many times we eventually hired a coordinator because we didn't have time to plan much than we already did (e.g. photographer, dj, caterer). But Delmy worked great with our coordinator and was there to answer any question that came up and offer feedback on different ideas, such as table seating arrangements.
We cannot say enough good things about this venue and Delmy. It was such an honor to get married here and a privilege to get to work with Delmy. Highly recommend to any couple!
