    I absolutely loved having my wedding at Top of the Town! It rained on my wedding day but my guests still utilized the awesome outdoor terrace and nothing beats the panoramic view of Washington, D.C. I found that my wedding contacts at the venue were easy to get in touch with and very helpful when it came to planning my wedding. Not only that, but there are so many aspects of the venue that are beautiful starting with the scenic elevator ride up to the gorgeous hallways leading to the reception room. Although the venue does come with restrictions as far as vendors, I found that this actually helped with my wedding planning process as I had never planned a wedding or an event like this before so I came from zero experience. I found great vendors through their list as a result and ones I will recommend to my friends for future events. All in all, it was wonderful to have my wedding here! I highly recommend it!

    We have been providing wedding cakes and desserts to special events at the Top of the Town for over a decade. The venue has a spectacular view and the staff are always accommodating to guests. We have personally attended two weddings here - wow, what a place!

    Top of the Town is the most beautiful venue in and about the city of Washington, DC. It has - by far - the most wonderful view of the city. Newscasts and movies use this location as their premier spot for a backdrop. There is a great outdoor deck that is just the ultimate lure. I have seen every group of people drawn out there for the magnificent view. The windows, from inside, have the same view, but people just have to get outside - almost magnetically! It can be raining or a snowstorm, and they WILL go outside. On top of that, the service is great and the food is abundant and delicious. Top of the Town is a rare combination that works to make your wedding just right. You will love it!
