    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.

    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!

    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.
