We chose the Carlyle Club as the venue for our wedding and reception on 2/17/17. From the moment we met with Sharon and Brennan to tour the club, we knew it was the perfect venue! It is charming, intimate, unique and classy. Working with Sharon was a dream come true. She acts as the day of coordinator and makes sure that your vision comes to life! When I was brought out to see the space on the day of my wedding- it took my breath away! Sharon pays attention to the smallest of details and everything was better than I hoped. Stunning! The staff at the Carlyle Club work hard to make every guest feel like they are VIP and they are always smiling and kind. The food was delicious! We have received so many compliment on The Carlyle Club- everyone has said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever been to- and that is in large part to Sharon and Brennan! We highly recommend the Carlyle Club for your wedding and event! Absolutely perfect!!!!Sent on 03/06/2017

Great Venue, Excellent Staff!!!!
The venue and staff were absolutely wonderful! We had our engagement party here and could not ask for a more accommodating venue. From the moment I entered the door, the staff went into action taking the items in my hand away, setting them up, so I could greet guests.Sent on 01/17/2019
My fiancé was running “fashionably” late, so we asked if we could pay to extend our party an additional hour, and such was granted instantly.
If we were getting married in town this would be where our wedding reception would be. The food and service were great. Hands down, and absolutely great venue.

Best Day Ever Because of Sharon and Brennan!
After looking at a few venues and feeling discouraged that we didn't love any of them in-person, my fiance found the Carlyle Club. As soon as we got inside, we knew we had found the one! The decor is fantastic and you automatically feel classier by just being inside! Sharon and Brennan were wonderful to deal with and went out of their way to accommodate us. We went to a few events at the Carlyle Club in the months leading up to our wedding and Sharon and her staff always made a point to say hello to us and wish us well. Sharon essentially serves a day-of coordinator and works tirelessly with you in the build-up to the big day to make sure she has all the details and timing right to coordinate with all the vendors. Our day ran smoothly and Sharon acts like a mom, making sure the bride and groom have whatever they need and ensuring they eat amidst all the excitement! :) So thrilled we went with the Carlyle Club and excited to attend future events there!Sent on 04/01/2019
Love DJing at this incredible venue! Perfect spot for wedding events, great food, dedicated owners, and a caring, attentive staff. Highly, highly recommend this awesome venue!
The Carlyle Club created the most magical wedding for both my clients. Their venue is spectacular and is great for any themed events. The staff was flawless in serving food. Their food was also very delicious. No complaints from anyone.
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.
