The Carlyle Club is a stunning, art-deco inspired venue in the greater Washington, D.C. area where couples can host all of their wedding-day events. This elegantly vintage venue features a built-in wooden dance floor, raised stage perfect for a live band or DJ, state of the art sound and lighting system, large bar with round marble bartop, private dressing room for the bride, large outdoor cocktail area, and so much more! This is without a doubt the most stunning, unique and beautiful venue in the DC Area.

Facilities and Capacity

As many as 275 guests can join couples on their wedding day at this striking venue. The Carlyle Club features the option for couples to host their ceremony and reception in the same venue. For a ceremony in the main space, couples can set up the stage as their altar with an aisle runner laid carefully between theater-style chairs. For a reception, the room transforms, with tables and chairs set up all around the room. These classy leather dining chairs match the stage lights, backdrop, grand piano, and other accents throughout the room. The black, gold and silver color palette of the room is instantly recognizable as classy and modern. A private room off the main lobby is the perfect location for a smaller ceremony or pre-reception cocktail hour.

    This is the one, the search stops here!

    When I say the Carlyle Club did a fantastic job, I mean it! They came through in the clutch. These guys helped us plan a wedding in 2 weeks. They have tabletops, flowers, and any other accessories you may need for your wedding. The food was fantastic and the price was unbeatable. COVID canceled our initial wedding and we scrambled to salvage our wedding date. We didn't think any venue could organize and provide the service last minute, but Carlyle did! We're thankful to Brennan, Sharon, and their whole staff. If you're planning a wedding or any other event, stop looking and pick this venue. You'll be amazed!!!

    The Carlyle Club's reply:

    Thanks, Kenan. We are so glad everything turned out so well, and we sincerely thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of the big day. Please come back and see us sometime for dinner and a show!

    A Night to Remember

    From booking the Carlyle Club in 2019 then postponing our event to summertime and decreasing the number of guests and adding in a ceremony at the Carlyle Club they were amazing. Brennan and Sharon were an amazing team and we super accommodating to everything we asked and made sure everyone was safe for the event. Sharon worked to make sure the space was set up and decorated for our special night and we were amazed with the job she did. One of the advantages of the Carlyle Club is the included items with the venue making planning easy. We loved the food during our tasting and made it difficult to decide which dishes we wanted. We got rave reviews from our guests of all of the food from the wedding. The event space was amazing and we cannot say enough about great Sharon was. We constantly had to rearrange our seating chart because of last minute guest changes due to COVID and Sharon made the changes easy and took the stress away from us because of how attentive she was. All of our guests had a safe and fun time. We highly recommend the Carlyle Club!

    The Carlyle Club's reply:

    Gaby:

    Thank you for the kind words. Working with you and Mike was a pleasure, and we are so glad that you were both happy. Please don't be strangers, and come back and see us for dinner and a show sometime. Thanks again, and we wish you the absolute best in your married life together!

    Excellent Customer Service

    What an amazing venue!

    My husband and I got married at The Carlyle Club on September 29, 2019! Everything was better than I could have ever imagined. The food was great, the atmosphere of the venue was excellent, and customer service was impeccable. The decor of this venue is astounding! A great nod to the 1920s era! Full service, one-stop shop! Food, drinks, and more!

    Sharon, Brennan, and Meghan were such great hosts! Sharon was communicative and very helpful during the planning process of our wedding. They were also very accommodating, allowing us to have both our ceremony and reception at the venue.

    The location is perfectly tucked away in Old Town Alexandria. There are plenty of hotels, shops, and parking options in close proximity to the venue. Your guests will love everything about this location.

    I am so pleased that we made the decision to hold our wedding at the The Carlyle Club! It was truly a Cinderella-fairy tale kind of day!

Carlyle Club is one of my favorite wedding venues! Great sound and lighting systems built in allow me to focus on coordinating the music and timeline. Great location just outside Old Town Alexandria with The Westin right across the street.
