    Gorgeous Views

    Top of the Town was the perfect venue for us. Working with Kate and Vivian to schedule tours was easy. Also, the were very responsive to any questions we had.
    I did like how they had a pre-approved list of vendors to pick from. This made my research of finding a caters and DJ easy. In addition, they have worked the venue before so no surprises. Also, tables and chairs are included so we didn't need to rent which was great.

    All pur guest were taken back by the views and how elegant the room looked.

Wedding Ceremonies by Jim Burch Wedding Ceremonies by Jim Burch Wedding Officiants

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!
