About The Congressional Club Museum and Foundation


The Congressional Club Museum & Foundation has, for more than one hundred years, been the perfect setting for weddings, beginning in 1923 when the first wedding was held at the Club. Since then, tradition had held that the Club was available only to Members and their friends. Now the historical Congressional Club is available to every couple who wants to celebrate their wedding in a location that honors the best of Washington DC’s past while looking forward to their future together.

Rental rates include the entire building for 8 hours (3 hour set-up, 5:00 - 10:00 pm event, and an hour breakdown). The first floor reception rooms are perfect for cocktail hour(s). The second floor ballroom can accommodate ceremonies as well as dinner and dancing.

History
The Club is a non-profit organization, made-up of current and former spouses of members of Congress, the United States Supreme Court and the President’s Cabinet. They work to promote volunteerism, assist with bipartisan efforts, raise awareness for various charities and preserve, collect and exhibit historical memorabilia of Congress and The Congressional Club.

    The Congressional Club is Amazing!

    Having the Congressional Club as our wedding venue was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Once we saw the venue, we knew this had to be the place. Natalie Thomas is a doll, and made everything so easy for us. Everyone raved how beautiful everything was - highly recommend!

    Whitney, you were a DREAM Bride. You are so sweet and we loved how the Club inspired you to create your decor and table themes around the history of the Club and First Ladies! We can't wait to showcase your pictures!

    Love the Congressional Club!

    My sister in law hosted my baby shower at The Congressional Club, but I thought a review would be useful for all of the brides-to-be (and moms-to-be) out there! From the very beginning, Natalie (the venue manager), was so responsive and helpful. She worked with the event planner and photographer seamlessly, was available for walk-throughs, and, best of all, was so good to my mother! Natalie stayed through the entire shower and ensured everything was implemented according to plan, and was so lovely to chat with after (she wanted to make sure everyone was happy). The venue itself was perfect, and I love how it has the huge kitchen in there - making catering so easy. The room itself is absolutely beautiful, that you can really let the space take the lead on decor. All of my guests keep talking about what a beautiful setup it was, and Natalie made it even easier since tables and chairs were already there. I can't say enough lovely things about The Congressional Club, except that I wish it was available when I got married, because I certainly would have picked it as my venue!

    The Congressional Club is quintessential DC, from the architecture to the beautiful staircase! The large reception room will allow your guests to never lose site of you. The parlors are so comfortable for cocktail hour and filled with history. After your reception, there are a number of restaurants and bars within walking distance to keep the party going. We love working at The Congressional Club and making couples dreams come true!
