Welcome to the most unique, romantic and beautiful venue in the Washington, DC area! Our classic art deco design evokes memories of 1940's New York City and Old Hollywood. The Club combines classic elegance with modern luxury right in the heart of downtown Alexandria. As the recipient of 2013, 2014 and 2015 Wedding Wire Couples Choice Awards, the Club is consistently praised for venue ambiance, outstanding service, food quality, value pricing and convenient location.

As the premier wedding venue in the Washington, DC area, our facility has recently been named one of the best places to hold a wedding in Alexandria.

With upgraded furnishings, a full professional sound and lighting system, an inlaid wood curved dance floor and a classic round bar that guests absolutely love, the Carlyle Club will transform your special day into an extraordinary day. This unique venue turns your event into a true celebration - the Club is definitely not a typical hotel ballroom. We believe this is why the most frequent comment we hear from guests is "this is the best wedding I have ever been to." We are proud of this, and work incredibly hard to make sure that is the feeling with every wedding reception held at Carlyle club. Our venue is the perfect setting for any occasion and will complete your special day!

My fiance and I just booked The Carlyle Club for our upcoming wedding event. Brennan and Sharon are amazing. They have been so responsive so far and very insightful. They have answered every question I've had before I even needed to ask. We are very much looking forward to working with them, I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us. I have only read good things about them in other reviews, which makes me even more excited for our big day!

Our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception was this past weekend August 6th, 2016 at The Carlyle Club. This Venue was absolutely perfect and the staff incredible. Sharon and Brennan made our daughter's dream come true!! We highly recommend The Carlyle Club if you are looking for the perfect Wedding location in the DC, MD, VA area. Sharon goes above and beyond to assist in organizing and coordinating your event! The food is totally unbelievable and our guests cannot stop raving about the entire evening. The staff was extremely professional and attentive throughout the entire night. As parents of the bride, we were truly able to relax and enjoy the evening.

The Carlyle Club was a wonderful venue for my daughter's wedding. The bride and groom did the planning and the wedding was amazing. The ceremony was so amazing. I can't say enough good things about the owners, Brennan and Sharon. They were so wonderful to work with. I knew nothing could go wrong with them in charge. I had been to the Carlyle Club for a Mothers day event and so I already knew that the food was fabulous. The dinner was amazing. The service was flawless. They are easy to work with, obviously enjoy what they are doing, put on a great wedding and are totally flexible and accommodating.

My husband and I have been longtime fans of The Carlyle Club, and so when we became engaged we knew exactly where we wanted to have our wedding. I can honestly say that it was the best choice that we could have possibly made for both our ceremony and our reception. From the beginning of the planning process, Sharon and Brennan went above and beyond to meet with us and to discuss our ideas for our wedding - even though they were navigating a move to a new location. In our early discussions, they were clear about the packages that they offered and answered a myriad of questions even before we signed a contract. Each time that we met to discuss additional details, they absolutely went out of their ways to make us feel like we, and our wedding, were important.

After signing our contract, we met with Sharon on two separate occasions to discuss the details of the wedding. These meetings were tremendously productive and helped us to understand the logistics of preparing for the event as well as how the day would go. Sharon always got back to me as additional questions arose (particularly about the day's timeline), and she even offered additional methods for getting into contact with her as the wedding day approached. When our final count was due, Brennan handled our adjusted numbers in an incredibly fair way and we felt that everything was settled properly.

As to the day of the wedding itself, Sharon had taken responsibility for the additional decorations and items that I brought by during the ceremony rehearsal and made sure that the staff set them up as per my requests. As a result, I had nothing to worry about except enjoying time with my groom and my guests. Throughout the day and the event, Sharon worked seamlessly with our D.J. as the day-of-coordinators. Thanks to her, the wedding party was tucked away with champagne before the ceremony, everyone was properly directed down the aisle, my husband and I had all of the hors d'oeuvres that we could ask for, and t

We could not have been more happy with our experience at the Carlyle Club. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was amazing. We had several people come up to us to say it was the best wedding that they had been to.

Everything about the venue is great from the location, food, staff, décor, and value.

The pricing is very transparent and there aren't a bunch of hidden charges as the per person price covers most expenses.

The owners, Sharon and Brennan, make sure that all of your needs are met and they really understand how to make sure you have a great time at your own wedding.

If you want a wedding in the DC area, then you cannot go wrong with the Carlyle Club.

The Carlyle Club made our wedding reception truly magical! I can't tell you how many guests came up afterwards to say it was the best wedding they ever attended. The ambiance of the club is unique and special. The food was fantastic and the staff was super attentive. Sharon and Brennan were helpful and accommodating throughout the planning process, and ensured everything flowed seamlessly throughout the reception. We couldn't recommend the Carlyle Club more highly.

I cannot begin to explain the most satisfying experience I had as a bride with Sharon and Brennan! I wish I had cameras following me to document the experience but I will just write it. Sharon and Brennnan answered every single question, considering, I was planning from Nov for our January 8th wedding. I literally did NOT worry one bit because I already read reviews about how great Sharon and Brennan are but I also met with them and they handled pretty much everything! Our table numbers with holders, beautiful table linen, bird cage for our cards, an easel for my picture frame to hold our seating chart so our guests would see on arrival (suggested by them!). Overall, Sharon and Brennan cater to their clients and they both honestly made a time where you're over thinking or forgetting so easy. I personally do not drink alcohol but our guests had top shelf that night! Moving onto the food was amazing and we had options that exceeded our expectations! Our guests were throughly pleased and are still complimenting us on our reception. They have all said "I've been too many receptions but this was drop dead amazing!" I will attach pictures to demonstrate. Okay, so now to the topic you're al wondering, is it economically possible? Yes! For this area alone, we had the best reception at a great price! And Im very frugal and not getting paid for this review, haha. Weddings in the DMV area are a solid $30K just for the location alone or including some vendors but my husband and I didn't even spend half of that! I always wanted a simple inexpensive wedding because I was afraid of the high price but I was able to have it ALL. The music and uplighting provided by our DJ Terrence Sheppard, beautiful cake provided by Simply Desserts (Kimberly McDonald) and our florist was amazing as well (Petal's Edge, Rebecca). I included all of my vendors because as my wedding team, I was able to truly have my dream wedding! It's been over a month but my hubby and are still elated!!! Choose them!

My daughter's wedding was absolutely perfect. The art deco supper club venue was perfect for the wedding. Sharon provided helpful suggestions and accommodated us in our every request. On the day of the event, she made sure everything was in readiness and made sure that neither the bride nor the bride's mother had anything to worry about. The venue accommodated our quartet, 9-piece band and dj without any problem. The guests said it was "the best wedding ever". I concur. I would without reservation recommend this venue.

On the day of the event, she made sure everything was in readiness and made sure that neither the bride nor the bride's mother had anything to worry about. The venue accommodated our quartet, 9-piece band and dj without any problem. The guests said it was "the best wedding ever". I concur. I would without reservation recommend this venue. Read less

Had our wedding here in November 2015. Our priority was affordability, while keeping it classy. We were informed of the change in location (see other reviews) BEFORE we signed the contract (and felt they made a special effort to make sure we knew before signing on). Like others, I was a little nervous, but willing to go with it hoping they'd have the kinks worked out by our wedding. In the end, we could not have made a better choice. Despite earlier reviews about hiccups involving the move, the new club is fantastic. Logistically it's ideal - surrounded by a range of hotels (with a range of prices to fit a range of tastes), parking available, but also metro accessible. Price wise, this has to be the best deal in the area (and we definitely looked), particularly given the open bar, table service, and AMAZING food. My sister spent well more than we did on her wedding (which was in the Midwest) and both were on the same level (classic and classy, but a total blast and not too stuffy). They were willing to work with us on the menu so that we had what we wanted (we had a few specific requests on liquor / drinks) without inflating our budget. These folks will not nickle and dime you - you get way more than you pay for and way more than you'll get elsewhere. I wasn't the easiest bride either, having done most of the decorations (cake, flowers, altar piece, other misc. items) myself. On Friday we basically dumped 10-15 boxes of stuff off with Sharon, with little to no explanation, and showed up on Saturday with the venue put together perfectly (she's the only day-of coordinator you'll need). The club was slammed with weddings surrounding ours, but Sharon is 100% focused on you and yours the days immediately leading up to the wedding. She and Brennan were so awesome to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again!

I just had my wedding at the Carlyle club on November 6th. Aside from my hubby unfortunately getting the stomach flu hours before the wedding :-(, it was LITERALLY the BEST DAY of my life! In case you are wondering...he pulled through...haha and he had the best time too! Danced the entire night despite some bathroom trips in between! I love you baby

I literally had a pinterest wedding. Literally. And special thanks to Sharon and Brennan. I shared with Sharon my vision and she literally made it happen and then million times that.They had silver pintucked linens, beautiful silver sparkly linens, beautiful lighted signs, and other table decor we didn't even talk about that she used to really shape the venue and make it JAW DROPPING. LITERALLY.I couldn't stop looking around the venue because I was literally in awe. I can't stop looking at pictures. I got so many compliments on the venue, the food (so many of my friends were blown away...this is not a feed to the masses crappy food venue..it's INCREDIBLE food), and just Sharon in general.... Pretty sure my family and I are obsessed with her. She even guided the photographer to get some cute shots of us and just really took care of us. If you want to have the wedding of the decade, you have it at the Carlyle Club. I do not regret my decision one bit. I am so glad I found this gem on wedding wire, and will be now visiting the club for shows and our wedding anniversary. Also - if you do book this venue the server they always assign to your sweetheart table is literally the bomb.
