Excellent Customer Service
What an amazing venue!Sent on 10/01/2019
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!

Hands down best venue choice
We couldn’t be happier with our choice of venue! Being able to have everything in one space with almost everything included is a value that cannot be surpassed. Sharon, Megan, Lionel, and crew are absolutely amazing. All of our guests were so impressed. Everything surpassed anything we could ever imagine!Sent on 09/29/2019

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.

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.
