    Fantastic location!

    I cannot recommend the City Club highly enough! It was very important to us that our guests be comfortable: out of DC's hot and rainy summer, not cramped into too small of a space, etc. We were also looking for a venue that provided as many services as possible, including catering and an on-site coordinator. The City Club more than met our requirements! We knew we were making a good decision after meeting with Morgan, who was one of the event coordinators at the time. Our only moment of doubt during the year leading up to our wedding was our transition to Aleks when Morgan left—how could anyone be as fantastic as Morgan?!—but we soon realized how right Morgan was when she told us that we'd be in good hands with Aleks.

    The City Club makes everything so easy by providing you with what you need. Why hassle with bringing in chairs, tablecloths, napkins, a dance floor, etc.—not to mention a caterer—to a venue from somewhere else? Getting married at the City Club will take all of that off your to-do list and allow you to focus on other things. Their bar packages were the most reasonable of any venue we looked at in DC. We worked with Morgan and then Aleks to put together a delicious menu that pleased everyone, vegan and gluten-free guests included. The entire staff was fantastic and really helped everyone enjoy the evening.

    The City Club works with you to bring your vision to life (there is only a very short list of rules that might limit you). Aleks handled all of our outside vendors on the day of, and of course made sure her staff were on top of things. Between Aleks and some delegation of tasks to the wedding party, we did not need to hire a wedding planner! In fact if we had hired someone I really don't know what they would have even done that day. So if you are looking to avoid hiring an outside planner as we were, the City Club is a great choice.

    In short, the City Club is a beautiful location, good value, and a great decision if you are getting married in the DC area!

    Perfect DC Reception Venue!

    Going into our wedding planning, we knew that we wanted to have a very DC wedding and The City Club of Washington provided us with everything that we could have asked for and more! Being that it is only a few blocks away from the National Mall and just down the street from The Capitol, the moment we first visited The Club, we knew this venue would be perfect for our DC wedding reception. Aleks and the rest of the Club Staff were very attentive and accommodating with any requests or questions that we had and we were so pleased that all the food and drink as well as tables, chairs, glassware, stemware, silverware, plates, tablecloths and napkins were provided by The Club. There were many times that we asked if we could drop by The City Club with our vendors, family, or just the two of us to either meet with Aleks or to envision details of our Cocktail Hour and Reception. Each time, the City Club accommodated our work schedules and made time after hours for these many drop-ins.

    For our food tasting, The City Club provided a full complete meal for ourselves and both sets of parents where we were able to taste every single item we requested from the menu. They answered all of our questions and were very accommodating to our family members with severe allergies, including gluten-free and vegetarian options.

    In the days leading up to the wedding, Aleks was on-call for any last-minute schedule and detail questions that we had. On Friday morning, we were able to drop off all of our cocktail and reception items and on the day of the wedding, Aleks and The City Club team were there every step of the way and ensured that our cocktail and reception ran absolutely perfect! Having a July wedding, we knew it was going to be hot, and the City Club ensured that the AC was blasting and kept everyone cool throughout the night of dancing. Aleks even set up the board room for the bridal party and ourselves with water and snacks and a place to sit and re-group before the reception. At the end of the night, we were able to do a grand exit on the streets of DC with the Washington Monument in the background. If you’re looking for a DC wedding venue which provides great customer service, fantastic location and value, then The City Club of Washington is your place!

    Cassandra was very helpful every step of the way and responded to all our needs. She customized the menu for us and made sure everyone on her staff understood everything that needed to happen on the wedding day. She met with us many times to go over any details and was very prompt about replying back to our numerous questions by email. Although she wasn't able to assist during the wedding day, Morgan was there for the rehearsal and knew exactly what to do.
    The venue itself is very unique in its layout and very well suited for hosting a wedding. We feel very fortunate to have found a ceremony and reception venue and catering services all with The City Club of Washington. Considering the location and other convenient qualities about the venue, we feel that we received more than what we paid for.

    We had a wonderful experience working with the City Club of DC for our wedding. We were looking for a venue that was "affordable for DC" and could accommodate a smaller group (around 75) for both ceremony and reception. The staff (shout out to Cassandra) were very helpful with the planning process and working within our budget. The venue itself is conveniently located next to a metro station and is attached to a parking garage (we also used a shuttle service). They handled the catering/bar service, organized chair rentals for ceremony, and provided many of the extra items. The food was delicious, all staff were friendly, and we had a wonderful wedding! Would recommend this venue for future events.

    Words can not describe how amazing this place is. We had the pleasure of working with Morgan, She not only made the experience seamless and personable, she and the staff of The City Club of Washington went above and beyond on our wedding day. Not once did I worry about any of the small details on our wedding day. Every single one of our guest said we had the best food ever!

    The club is located in DC steps away from Metro Center Station. Walking distance to many hotels and museums, which helps if you have out of town guest who like to explore.

    We had a beautiful wedding day that couldn’t have been any better!
    Morgan was fantastic, she did such a great job planning and coordinating our wedding even leading up to the few minutes before the ceremony.
    She was always willing to change the menu and food selections when we didn’t like something. She even was able to plan our rehearsal dinner just a few days before the event!

    Thank you again Morgan, we cannot express in words how special you made our day.

    We 100% recommend the city club. You will have a beautiful ceremony, fantastic food and for such a reasonable price!

    Morgan Webb, was OUTSTANDING to work with. s an event planner, I all know that weddings can come with many changes as well as challenges, but no matter what curveball was tossed at us, Morgan seamlessly handled each one with grace and professionalism. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and the staff at the Washington City Club. Beautiful event space, food quality and onsite staff is exceptional! I look forward to hosting

    Morgan was fantastic making sure everything was perfect. The breath taking venue was everything we wanted. Chef Lee and his team are second to none. Customer oriented and outside vendors (cake, flowers & DJ) commented on the ease of working with Morgan.

    I had a great time working with the City Club of Washington with the planning of my wedding. Everything was completely spectacular. The City Club team was helpful with the last minute request to cook apps for my attendants and great about making sure we were all taken care of. My guest raved about the food and the pricing was so reasonable for the area. I loved having a one-stop shop for venue and catering and would go back again. Thanks Cassandra and team!

    The City Club of Washington hosted our 10 year Vow renewal. Excellent customer service, food and the establishment was phenomenal. A very unique location to host any event. Parking is available and not too pricy. The facility natural beauty reduces decor needs since there is natural sunlight and a water fountain. The celebration was EPIC!!! If you are looking for a unique experience, choose The City Club of Washington. This is a phenomenal establishment with superb customer service!

    The City Club has a great team who helped make our wedding the night we envisioned for our guests. I worked with Cassandra and Mariah, who were ROCK STARS for us. The team even made sure to set up their Christmas tree arrived in time so that we could put our ornament favors on it!

    Working with City Club was extremely easy and their flexibility on vendors made the coordination a breeze! The catering was provided by their in house kitchen and everything was delicious. I did have an issue with the handling of my cake, which was delivered by outside vendor. I'm not sure the venue team had proper instructions for how to thaw and serve for ideal texture and taste. We had a dummy with fondant on display and sheet cake for guests. I was very disappointed in how my guests' slices tasted. If you have an external cake brought in, make sure the team at CC has instructions for thawing.

    It's also extremely reasonably priced (for now). The location fee (for non members) is very reasonable/affordable for D.C. Prior to my fiancé finding this spot, we were looking at restaurants. I'm so glad we found the City Club and hosted our event there. It's a great venue for a reception after a church wedding, but they also have a gorgeous atrium that could be used for a ceremony.

    Perfect if you want a traditional indoor space with a ballroom.

    My daughter & her fiancee went to at least 12 venues before deciding on The City Club of Washington. Best decision we ever made. The food and staff were amazing. The venue itself is breathtaking. We had a great time. Hats off to Mariah for going the extra mile for their function. Don't hesitate.

    I never would have guessed I could afford a wedding in the middle of DC. Everything was so expensive and I almost gave up my search when I discovered the City Club of Washington website. I couldn't believe this gorgeous space was within the budget.

    The final production was more beautiful than I had imagined. I worked with Mariah (Event Coordinator) she was responsive, helpful and cheerful. She keep me on track with subtle gestures and open dialogue. It was an amazing experience and never once did I feel stress or pressure.

    My guest all raved about the space and the food and really just had a wonder time. Thanks to the staff and the City Club for a job well done.

    After having trouble with an initial vendor we booked, we were in search again for another venue! The City Club of Washington's sales team is fantastic! Very accommodating, informative, helpful, and responsive! We are thrilled to have chosen the CCW as our venue for our reception and our ceremony! Definitely give them a chance. :) This venue is all inclusive for food, drinks, ceremony space, and the full reception with areas to get ready for both the bride and the groom!

    Mariah at the City Club of Washington made the day exactly what we were hoping for. We came in with some unusual requests, family style service, a menu that combined Cuban and Italian cuisine, long banquet tables without seating cards, and some last minute decision making. Mariah worked with the staff and chef to make everything we wanted a reality. The staff at service were fun and friendly ensuring that everyone was having a great time. My Grandmother still asks about the bartender Toni.

    After looking for venues in Connecticut and Washington, DC, the City Club was the only venue that fit our budget, accommodated our requests, and didn't require a large guest list.

    The City Club of Washington is the best value in the city, hands down. The venue is gorgeous, the service was fantastic and the food was really good. I had to plan the wedding from California, so I was so happy to find a venue that was all inclusive (really!) so I had one point of contact. Having everything in one place meant I didn't have to worry about transport and logistics between the ceremony and reception. Mariah works really hard and she made sure everything came together perfectly. She went out of her way to accommodate my requests, even letting me use their wooden wine boxes for my guest cards and order special wine for the head table. It was really amazing coming down that grand staircase and seeing all my loved ones waiting below and I got so many compliments on the beautiful venue, even though I didn't decorate at all. I never thought we could afford such a beautiful venue in the heart of DC.

    I can not say enough about the City Club of Washington, Mariah Howes, and the rest of the events team. Everything about our day was perfect and exactly how we envisioned it. Mariah was incredibly helpful and responsive through out our planning process. They were able to accommodate all of our needs and changes as they arose. Our guests loved the convenience and flow of having the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in one place. The convenience of having everything in on location really allowed us to spend time w/ our guests. We were also able to take advantage of the beautiful atrium for pictures before the ceremony and were able to sneak in a few more right after cocktail hour. The food and service were amazing. We were truly able to enjoy everything about our day because we knew that without a doubt the City Club Team had everything handled. Given all that, we still found the venue to be very reasonably priced and the location right at metro center was convenient for both locals and out of town guests. I would recommend the City Club over and over again!

    The City Club of Washington is an absolutely wonderful wedding venue; I cannot say enough good things about it. First, it is beautiful and very photogenic. The staircase and fountain provide a gorgeous indoor setting for the ceremony, and I loved how the staircase allowed for a more unique entrance for the bride and wedding party than the traditional walk up the aisle. The Club itself is a classy and elegant space for the cocktail hour and/or reception, and the cost is very reasonable.

    The food is incredible. We had reception stations, which provided a large variety of options. The amount of food served was generous, and we received lots of positive feedback about it, including one guest who commented that it was the best wedding food he has ever had. We had a carved sirloin, risotto, seafood, and vegetarian stations. I would highly recommend them all. The seafood station is awesome!

    The service was also great. The staff were very professional and friendly. Everything seemed to run perfectly smoothly. Our event coordinator, Mariah, was amazing! We exchanged countless e-mails planning various details of the wedding, and she knew all the right questions to ask in order to cover details that we didn't think of ourselves. She cheerfully took care of all of our requests, including a couple very last-minute ones, which really helped keep any stress and anxiety down. We could not have been happier with our choice to have our wedding at the City Club. Book your wedding with them now!
