Washington Tavern was unveiled to excited Maryland patrons.

    Perfect for our Wedding Reception

    We got married on 4/2/2022 in the Pimlico Room at Mount Washington Tavern with about 52 guests and a DJ. The experience from start to finish was great; the team at MWT were easy to work with, flexible, responsive and everything, I mean EVERYTHING including the pastry chef, bar & bartenders, event planner, decor, and the florist is in-house. The food was excellent. We opted for a buffet style event, and we had so much flexibility in the food selections. There were no fixed menus or required items - we had everything we wanted and nothing we didnt - then the tavern quoted us a price for our selections. It was phenomenal. The staff was amazing (they brought the bride & groom food & drink as soon as they arrived), decor like centerpieces, candles, and flowers was beautiful and all done by them. We only needed to give them guidance on what decor/flowers we wanted and they did the rest; which alleviated SO MUCH extra stress and cost. The florist, Holly, even trasferred the flowers to and from our ceremony venue!

    Mary (event planner), Holly (florist/decorater) and Shannon (baker) were all easy to work with and so flexible with our requests. I would highly recommend this venue to everybody.

    A Hidden Gem

    Mount Washington Tavern was the first and only venue that we looked at for our wedding reception, and they were WONDERFUL!! They are very reasonably priced, the service is excellent, and Mary is incredibly responsive and accommodating, especially considering COVID. Holly did a great job with the flowers, Shannon baked a delicious cake, and Theresa and the day of team couldn't have been better. The food was also terrific and a number of our guests commented on it. The entire experience was very personal, customizable, and stress free. 10/10, would recommend!!
