Washington Tavern was unveiled to excited Maryland patrons.

We looked at a few venues but Mt. Washington was always our first pick. Mary was amazing to work with and super easy to get in touch with. She made great recommendations for different problems that arose along the way such as photographers requests, DJ requests, etc. She had a solution for every little thing and was fantastic at easing our nerves about the smaller details. We used Holly for the flowers and Shannon for the cake, and all three people were easy to get along with. They also had suggestions to keep ourselves in line with the budget. The wedding itself was much easier than I had expected because of the professionalism of the staff at Mt. Washington Tavern. Our guests loved the Sky Bar and the atmosphere that it created where people could chat and catch up with old friends or dance in the Pimlico Room.Sent on 11/11/2019

Fall wedding at the Tavern
We had our wedding ceremony and sit-down dinner in the Chesapeake Room at the tavern. It worked out perfectly for the size group we had (about 85 people). Mary, the event planner, was awesome to work with. She was responsive and attentive. She was very flexible with our request. We used the onsite florist who created beautiful arrangements in our budget. We also used the onsite pastry chef who did a wonderful job with dessert. Everyone had a wonderful evening! It was better than I could have imagined!Sent on 11/19/2019

AMAZING highly recommend
10 stars for your next EVENT. We held our wedding at the Mt Washington Tavern for a untraditional but SUPER FUN time. We rented the entire upstairs of the restaurant and hosted our ceremony, cocktail hour, and strolling reception. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Mary was phenomenal to work with, always available to answer my questions and worked with our budget. We used Holly for our flowers and WOW absolutely beautiful. WE used the on site pastry chef for our desserts and our guests absolutely loved them. Everyone here worked with us and helped the night go seamlessly. Our guests said it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to. For us, the ability to have good food, ad outside space (lovely sky bar), and an open bar that included the WORKS (beyond your usually vodka cran or light beer you get stuck with at traditional weddings) were all very important factors and MWT delivered. We had ample space for a dance floor and Mary and her team handled the set up of all or our decor so it was totally hands off. No need to worry about renting tables and plates and table clothes like you often need to at other venues. Restaurant weddings are underrated but I promise you will not be disappointed if you host your next event here.
Note: we had about 120 guests in the entire upstairs, there was adequate seating for all but we did not do a sit down dinner and chose the strolling reception option insteadSent on 09/29/2019
