Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • You and your guests become VIPs the moment you enter this hilltop penthouse's elegant marble foyer. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the main event space reveal a breathtaking panorama of all of Washington D.C.'s monuments and the Potomac River; the adjacent Monumental Room is perfect for indoor ceremonies, boasting the same spectacular view with a modern, airy feel.
  • Flexible room configurations easily accommodate intimate weddings or larger events up to 180 guests. Plus, the outdoor terrace is a fabulous spot for photos—the city sights, especially when lit up at night, make a stunning backdrop.
  • Great amenities like a dedicated express elevator, magnificent chandeliers, Chiavari chairs, and free parking in Top of the Town's private lot make this venue hard to beat.
