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.
We held our wedding, cocktail hour, and reception at City Club and now cannot imagine hosting it anywhere else. The food was to die for. The service? World-class. Elegant does not even begin to do our event justice. The event staff was responsive, professional, courteous, and took care of everything for us. There was nothing we had to stress over the day of the wedding because everywhere we turned, someone from City Club was ensuring everything was covered. Staff stayed late on occasion to answer our questions. The entire team was so very kind to us, and their concern for small details and pride in their work shone through - the nicest element being small details we didn't even think of or ask for already taken care of or, in some cases, added to enhance the evening. Everyone keeps complimenting us on our wedding day: the details, the decor, the service. City Club made the day better than we could have possible imagined.
"The quality of the event planning, culinary and service staff could not have been finer. The facility was beautiful. Our wedding could not have been more perfect."
"The City Club of Washington was the perfect site for our reception. The facility has beautiful dark wood wainscoting that makes it feel warm and it's in a convenient location in the city. It is quite reasonable priced for a wedding in DC. They worked with us to find an option that fit our budget and modified the menu to accommodate all of our food allergies and dietary preferences. The food was very good as was the service. During the reception they assigned an attendant to my husband and I so that we never had to wait for anything."
"I wanted to plan and hold a wedding in less than 60 days. As you can imagine, most venue's and caterers were not in a position to make this happen in the style my fiance and I wanted. The City Club was perfect for our simple but elegant event. Cassandra and the rest of the staff at the City Club were amazing! The were responsive, flexible and very helpful. We had a one stop event with the wedding and reception in the same venue. With on site garage parking, our guests didn't have to waste time finding parking. The ceremony was held in the beautiful atrium near the fountain and the decorated ballroom looked magical! Most importantly, it all came together stress free - and yes, I made a lot of changes in everything from menu, to bar services, to linen, etc. We received many compliments from our guest on a truly elegant event. Most importantly, my husband and I can look back knowing we had our perfect, simple but elegant wedding."
