As its name suggests, Virtue Feed & Grain, a venue located in Alexandria, Virginia, has experienced a rich history over the years since its beginning as a feed house. Back in the 1800s, this feed house opened its doors to the city of Alexandria. Over the years, it transformed into a venue and restaurant perfect for couples desiring a mix of history with a rustic and elegant style. Even though this venue has been renovated, care was taken to maintain the original elements and essence of this historic space. For example, the original window bricks were repurposed throughout the new space when it was renovated. This stylish backdrop now provides the perfect space for couples to host their bridal shower, engagement party, ceremony, or reception in.
Facilities and Capacity
Period wood also fills the Virtue Feed & Grain's two levels adding a touch of warmth and style. On your special day, you can invite up to 300 of your friends and family. While most of the ceremonies and celebrations take place indoors, there is also a seasonal outdoor brick patio that can be used. Because the space is quite large, if couples are planning a smaller ceremony they are welcome to only reserve certain spaces. However, for larger ceremonies, couples can utilize the entire space. Not only will your guests be awed by the stunning interior, but also by the peaceful Potomac River situated just outside the venue.
At the Virtue Feed & Grain, the team can assist your every step of the way as you plan your special day. They can also help you with event rentals and lighting and sound. Decorations they can provide you with include:

We love Virtue! Their entire team is incredible. We hired them about a year ahead of our wedding, and were in communication with their team constantly - sharing ideas, asking questions, working our desired layout for the day. Even when they changed their events menu a few months before our wedding, they worked with us to incorporate all the dishes we wanted from their old menu. It was awesome! Plus they don't nickel and dime you for every little thing - service and space is all included with the F&B minimum (which is SO worth it). Also - this place is spacious. We had 80 guests fit in the entire upstairs, and could have easily fit twenty more people. We had a stage, dance floor, two couch lounge areas, buffet line, dessert table, gift table, and escort card tables.
If you haven't already, go visit them for lunch/dinner, ask to be seated upstairs, and you'll fall in love. :)

Emily, Amber and their team did a fantastic job with our wedding reception! The venue was set up exactly the way we requested, the food and drinks were delicious and the staff were totally accommodating and made sure our guests always had everything they wanted. From the first planning meeting through the end of our reception, everything was handled beautifully and our guests raved about everything. Thanks so very much and we look forward to hosting future events at Virtue Feed and Grain.

Great Wedding Experience
Amber, the Events Manager at Virtue, Feed & Grain was absolutely fantastic to work with. She had a great attitude and a very calming demeanor, which really helped minimize any of my stress. We held a wedding reception for 30 people in the Porch Room and everything came out great. We met with Amber multiple times and she was always happy to meet with us. We were able to see the room set up for another event and test out the music and photo presentation. Regarding the photo presentation that we displayed on the TV screen, she let us know ahead of time that PowerPoint is usually not compatible with the device so we were able to look for alternatives from the beginning. She was also very flexible when it came to the food menu and allowed us to customize the menu (two courses) and bring in our own cake, which the staff cut for us.
The staff helped set everything up before the event, including escort cards, gift table, guest book and In Loving Memory Table. Amber allowed us to drop off the decorations early on the day of the wedding, which really helped keep the bridal party on schedule. The staff also provided menus on each plate and handled the clean up as well. Everyone was very attentive and made sure the drink refills were flowing.
All of the guests thoroughly enjoyed the food and the portion sizes were huge. The room can be a bit dim, but again the staff was great and turned the lights on, which the photographer really appreciated.
Again, Amber was amazing and I would definitely host another party there in the future!

One of my favorite spots in all of Alexandria. The upstairs is the perfect space for a reception or special event. Great people to work with as well.
Words can't describe how much I love this venue. The food is fabulous, the decor/atmosphere is classic rustic with an elegant urban vibe that is totally amazing. When my client described to me her wedding vision The Virtue was my go to recommendation. The bride was beyond excited and every element of the space fit her expectations. Although the atmosphere is great, words cannot describe the staff at The Virtue. The entire evening the staff was pleasant, helpful and sweet. If I could bundle them up and take them with me to every wedding I plan/coordinate I would. They were that amazing! Love this venue in every way!
Virtue Feed and Grain is amazing place for weddings! I love to work at this place, I love all staff which does amazing job and always on top of the things. Food ah...I can't wait to be back again for it! Everything what they do is just speechless. I highly recommend this place for every couple who would like to have an amazing wedding at amazing place!
