Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Perched 400 feet above the nation’s capital, this is a breathtaking event space like no other, boasting 360-degree views through three stories of wraparound windows. Expert in-house catering through Design Cuisine ensures a delectable and snag-free dinner experience.
  • Celebrate in unique, ultra-modern style in the Observation Deck, where you’ll find (in addition to that glorious view) artful lighting, a second-story mezzanine, and a full A/V system that includes WiFi and digital upgrades.
  • Add even more “wow” to the day with the addition of the Champagne Bar (a work of art in itself) and Terrace, an outdoor space entirely enclosed by glass partitions that allow guests to bask in the incredible, miles-long panorama.
