    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!
