Fort Myer, one of the oldest Army posts in the country, is located near the banks of the Potomac River. In February of 1881, Fort Myer was named in honor of Brigadier General Albert J. Myer who commanded the Signal School for Army and Navy Officers. Prior to that time it was known as Fort Whipple, in honor of General Amiel W. Whipple, who paid the supreme sacrifice in the Battle of Chancellorsville during the Civil War. At the direction of President Abraham Lincoln, Fort Whipple was commissioned in October 1862. Today, Fort Myer is home to the 3rd U. S. Infantry Regiment, “The Old Guard”, the Army’s official ceremonial unit and escort to the President, as well as the U. S. Army Band, "Pershing's Own."

The Fort Myer Officers’ Club, known as Patton Hall, was built in 1896. General George S. Patton, Jr., commanded Fort Myer as a Colonel from 1938-1940, and the Club was renamed in his honor. The Provost Marshall’s office, adjacent to Patton Hall, is the building in which General Patton resided during his tenure at Fort Myer. The first military use of aircraft by the Wright Brothers occurred on the parade field just across the street from the Officers’ Club. Patton Hall is one of the largest and most prestigious military clubs in the world, frequently hosting Presidents and honored dignitaries. Several banquet rooms in the Club are named after famous generals. The Fort Myer Officers’ Club was the recipient of the Carroll Award for 1995,1996, and 2001, the Army’s highest award bestowed on military clubs.

Our Officer Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9am-5pm. Phone- (703)524-0200

We just had our black-tie wedding at Ft Myer. Helena is a dream to work with and made everything very easy. They are a very flexible venue and could not be happier with the decision. The ballroom is lovely (standard ballroom) but you can do a lot to make it unique and truly beautiful. Their package deal is the best kept secret in DC. We used Royalty Florist and they flowers could not have been better. We hired a band and the DJ that came with the package was only okay so you may want to interview around and/or bring in your own DJ. The clubs food was delicious and the staff was helpful and efficient. Don't hesitate to book here. (For what it is worth we liked it much better than Ft McNair. McNair is on the water but we thought the ballroom was smaller and somewhat musty. Also, Helena the coordinator at Ft Myer is so good that, that alone is reason to go Ft Myer over Ft McNair)

I grew up across the street from the O'Club, and even lifeguarded there in high school, so I knew I absolutely had to have my wedding reception there. I'm so glad I did! My own personal history aside, the Club was such a phenomenal venue, and Helena and her staff were so helpful, kind, and easy to work with. Their attention to detail was amazing, the food was spectacular, and once the reception started everything went incredibly smoothly (you could tell they were old pro's!). I am a type-A psycho, and Helena was SO patient with me and all of my questions/requests; she was very accommodating to all of the little details I threw their way. We had a big wedding with a lot of moving parts, all of which ended up being executed perfectly thanks to the Club's wonderful team.

The vendors they suggested were, for the most part, amazing: Alexandria Pastry and Royalty Flowers were 2 of the best companies I've ever worked with. I cannot speak highly enough of them! Incredibly kind, wonderful people, and the cake and flowers were all beyond what we could have hoped for. J.K. Music Productions got the job done too; they got us in contact with a pianist that played during cocktail hour, and DJ John emceed our wedding. He was VERY old school (still used CDs exclusively, and couldn't take dance song requests because of it) and he had a hard time flexing when we requested certain songs or things outside of his normal wedding-music box (even when done so weeks ahead of time), but he was very nice and, despite some back and forth, made it work.

Overall, I'm thrilled with the way our wedding turned out. Knowing what I know now I might have pushed to bring in a different DJ (one with more of a modern flair), but everything else was 110% perfection. The reception was GORGEOUS ascetically, ran smoothly, and I had multiple people saying it was the best wedding they've ever been to.

I am the MOB, am very particular and, of course, wanted the very best for my daughter's wedding. The reception was at the Fort Myer, Virginia Officer's Club, and was managed by Five Star Catering. It was beautiful, very elegant, and fun and the food was exceptional. The management went out of their way to make sure every detail was taken care of and yet followed through on our vision. The cost was extremely competitive with other venues in town and, I'm 100% positive that we had a gorgeous reception for much, much less than a comparable event would have cost in town. The event director anticipated our needs and was in constant communication with us. And, there is no more beautiful place than Fort Myer to have a recption. Thank you to Helena and Five Star Catering for a glorious celebration!

I wasn't going to write a review but then I thought that wouldn't be fair to all the other brides searching for a venue. After reading all of the positive reviews on wedding wire, I decided to go with this place. The price was good and in the beginning the communication with the coordinator was great. Unfortunately, as the wedding day approached that started to slow down.
She was no where to be found and trying to get any information from her was done by numerous friends and family trying to call or email her multiple times to get a response. It was extremely stressful. At the reception, the caterers were taking the guests plates away before they were even done. Many guests commented that the wait stuff was rude which made me very unhappy. The bartender however was friendly and outgoing with the guests. He was a very nice guy and he interacted with my guests and made jokes so I guess that balanced it out a bit. I don't want to discourage you from planning a wedding here but felt I had to be honest about my experience. They could have had an off day who knows. There are obviously tons of positive reviews on here. However, I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone for a wedding.

FT Myer Officer Club is the best place to go if you want an all inclusive package for a cheap price. You get food, flower décor, DJ, cake, and open bar for a price per head. There were other vendors that had packages but did not include either a DJ or cake or something and the price was more expensive than the Officer Club. The food was delicious, I didn't do a food tasting. The open bar was great too. My wedding was in December so there were a lot of Christmas decoration and Christmas trees around.

For the flowers, DJ, and cake the coordinator gives you a list of vendors that comes included in their package and you have to contact them and coordinate what type of flowers/cake/music you want. Then you inform the Officer club of who you chose. The vendors are very professional and I was happy with them.

Helena is the best coordinator to work with. She was not pushy or trying to make me buy a higher priced package. She worked with me and looked out for my best interest. She recommended the vendors that came with the package and I went with them and they were great, I didn't even have to look at the other vendors on the list. She answered all of my questions. Got all of my details I wanted. I made so many changes and I valued her suggestions.

The venue is gorgeous. The food was amazing and all of our guests couldn't stop commenting how good it was. All of our guests had a great time and the package deal is hard to beat in that area and made planning a lot less stressful! Overall extremely happy!!

Just a heads up....
They do NOT set up your tables for you so make sure you have someone to do that for you. We werent able to set up the reception until the day of at 12pm, which was extremely tough to do seeing as though I could not be there to coordinate things how i wanted them. It was just an added headache to the day since i had people calling me left and right on how to do things. In the end it worked out.

Also, a good majority of our guests were searched when getting onto base so give guests a heads up on that and to make sure they have their IDs.

Lastly, ubers either cannot go on base or have an extremely hard time getting onto the base. I believe cabs can go on but not ubers. A lot of our guests were trying to uber at the end of the night and either had to pack onto the party bus with us or walk off of base to get their uber (and its not a short walk).

Helena is the best! She is informative, reliable, friendly, smart, and so helpful! I am thrilled I found Fort Myer as an option for my reception, especially since I do not have an affiliation with the military. It is a well kept secret of the Northern Virginia area and it is great quality for a reasonable price!

We worked with Mr. Nebeyou Aberra and he really made everything come together perfectly. The package was VERY inclusive - open bar, catering, decorations, DJ, champagne toast, wine for every table, flowers, etc. - and a GREAT deal. Just about the only thing not included was a photographer!
In addition to being a great value, the entire day went off without a hitch thanks to Nebeyou. When the chuppah was taller than the ceilings, he personally found a saw to shorten it. When the bride's sister was ill, he brought crackers and ginger ale for her literally on a silver platter. The decorations and seating arrangements were set up without us having to lift a finger and everything was choreographed and organized so professionally and excellently that it was even better than we imagined.
Even ahead of time, Nebeyou was very responsive to questions and concerns and always responded to emails within a few business days if not sooner. The food was delicious and set out in a timely fashion with excellent coordination between the waitstaff and the MC so that guests could get food quickly and efficiently.
The building itself is gorgeous, as is the ballroom. It has a beautiful sense of vintage decorum - warm and inviting, just formal enough to be elegant without being so formal that it would be stuffy.
We would absolutely and unconditionally recommend the Fort Myer Officers' Club and Mr. Aberra to any and all who ask and have only great things to say about everyone involved in making our big day so special and personal and perfect!

You should know first that I am EXTREMELY particular about things being done on time and to near perfection, which includes customer service. I can't be more happy about the level of professionalism and service I received beginning with the planning process through my wedding and reception. My wedding and reception were both held at the Officers' Club. Nebeyou was truly a pleasure to work with. He was very patient, accommodating, knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. The team went far beyond my expectations and I'm sure, what they were required to do.

One of the staff, Patricia, was assigned to assist with my rehearsal and reception. Wow! What can I say about her other than she was AMAZING!! She helped us the night before with decorating. Whatever we needed, she was readily available and truly a trooper because we asked for all sorts of things. There was not one thing we asked for, that she didn't HAPPILY provide. The same is true for my wedding day. She saved my makeup and dress because the area where I dressed was hot and I began to perspire. I jokingly asked for a fan - she left and came back with one!!!

And the food...people kept talking about how good it all was. Again, I can't complain - the food was great!

I could go on about how truly fantastic these folks are but I think you get the picture. It's easy for me to find something "wrong", but there is NOTHING I can say that wouldn't compliment the service I received. I'm so pleased with them that my mother and I will have our milestone birthday party there this year.

Oh and I used the Alexandria Pastry Shop for my cake. The sample was "just alright" however, the actual cake was fabulous. My flowers, from Royal Floral Designs in Springfield, VA were far better than their pictures indicate. Outstanding!!!

If you choose this venue, you will NOT be disappointed!!!
