    Fantastic venue and event staff

    We were looking for a non-traditional venue for our wedding, and Union Stage was a perfect fit. Our goal was to create a unique and memorable wedding for not only ourselves but also for our guests, and the event staff at Union Stage worked seamlessly with our vendors to make that happen. Unlike a lot of other venues, Union Stage provided us with a day-of wedding coordinator (Natalie) who worked with us during the months prior to the wedding to create a detailed timeline and brought up issues we hadn't really thought of. Since my husband and I had no event experience, this was essential in making our wedding a success. On the day of the wedding, Natalie and the rest of the event staff set up the space exactly how we had discussed, and kept the event running in accordance with the timeline. More importantly, the event staff at Union Stage worked hard to understand our vision and then made it happen. Even my most hard to please family members have done nothing but rave about the venue and the event itself, and I am so grateful we selected Union Stage for our wedding.

    Awesome venue!

    I hosted a company event at Union Stage and could not have been happier with the results! My event coordinators Eddie and Natalie were there to help set up all my decorations and made sure everything went according to plan. The bar staff was also very friendly. My colleagues were impressed that we had found such a fun, unique venue - and you can't beat being down at the Wharf. Would definitely recommend for a corporate event or wedding - very versatile space.

    Union Stage is a great venue for any event!

    My husband and I got married at Union Stage in Washington, DC in October 2018. We go to so many concerts around DC and could not believe how perfect Union Stage was to have our dream wedding. The venue is the perfect size and the price was right. All of the staff that we worked with were fun, friendly, and had a good time along with us on our wedding day. We could not be happier with how everything went, and highly recommend having your wedding, or any event, at Union Stage. It was our dream "concert" wedding come true.
