    Fantastic location!

    I cannot recommend the City Club highly enough! It was very important to us that our guests be comfortable: out of DC's hot and rainy summer, not cramped into too small of a space, etc. We were also looking for a venue that provided as many services as possible, including catering and an on-site coordinator. The City Club more than met our requirements! We knew we were making a good decision after meeting with Morgan, who was one of the event coordinators at the time. Our only moment of doubt during the year leading up to our wedding was our transition to Aleks when Morgan left—how could anyone be as fantastic as Morgan?!—but we soon realized how right Morgan was when she told us that we'd be in good hands with Aleks.

    The City Club makes everything so easy by providing you with what you need. Why hassle with bringing in chairs, tablecloths, napkins, a dance floor, etc.—not to mention a caterer—to a venue from somewhere else? Getting married at the City Club will take all of that off your to-do list and allow you to focus on other things. Their bar packages were the most reasonable of any venue we looked at in DC. We worked with Morgan and then Aleks to put together a delicious menu that pleased everyone, vegan and gluten-free guests included. The entire staff was fantastic and really helped everyone enjoy the evening.

    The City Club works with you to bring your vision to life (there is only a very short list of rules that might limit you). Aleks handled all of our outside vendors on the day of, and of course made sure her staff were on top of things. Between Aleks and some delegation of tasks to the wedding party, we did not need to hire a wedding planner! In fact if we had hired someone I really don't know what they would have even done that day. So if you are looking to avoid hiring an outside planner as we were, the City Club is a great choice.

    In short, the City Club is a beautiful location, good value, and a great decision if you are getting married in the DC area!

    Perfect DC Reception Venue!

    Going into our wedding planning, we knew that we wanted to have a very DC wedding and The City Club of Washington provided us with everything that we could have asked for and more! Being that it is only a few blocks away from the National Mall and just down the street from The Capitol, the moment we first visited The Club, we knew this venue would be perfect for our DC wedding reception. Aleks and the rest of the Club Staff were very attentive and accommodating with any requests or questions that we had and we were so pleased that all the food and drink as well as tables, chairs, glassware, stemware, silverware, plates, tablecloths and napkins were provided by The Club. There were many times that we asked if we could drop by The City Club with our vendors, family, or just the two of us to either meet with Aleks or to envision details of our Cocktail Hour and Reception. Each time, the City Club accommodated our work schedules and made time after hours for these many drop-ins.

    For our food tasting, The City Club provided a full complete meal for ourselves and both sets of parents where we were able to taste every single item we requested from the menu. They answered all of our questions and were very accommodating to our family members with severe allergies, including gluten-free and vegetarian options.

    In the days leading up to the wedding, Aleks was on-call for any last-minute schedule and detail questions that we had. On Friday morning, we were able to drop off all of our cocktail and reception items and on the day of the wedding, Aleks and The City Club team were there every step of the way and ensured that our cocktail and reception ran absolutely perfect! Having a July wedding, we knew it was going to be hot, and the City Club ensured that the AC was blasting and kept everyone cool throughout the night of dancing. Aleks even set up the board room for the bridal party and ourselves with water and snacks and a place to sit and re-group before the reception. At the end of the night, we were able to do a grand exit on the streets of DC with the Washington Monument in the background. If you’re looking for a DC wedding venue which provides great customer service, fantastic location and value, then The City Club of Washington is your place!
