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

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!!!

Helena and her entire team made our experience easy and relaxed! True professionals! We enjoyed having everything included, from the food to choosing the vendors for cake and flowers! We did forego the DJ to have the band Millennium from Washington Talent (which really made for a fun party!). So thankful for Helena!

The package at this venue was a great value! We worked with Helena and she was very helpful and professional. Helena had great food suggestions and were pleased with all of her recommendations. We were unsure we would meet the amount of seat requirements for reserving the ballroom, but Helena worked with us and we ended up having around 119 guests with 14 tables.

Our package included cocktail hour (food, space, setup, & open bar),cake, DJ, reception flowers, catering, location, linens, 3 hours open bar, wine for table, champaign toast, setup, and breakdown. The linen selection was also nice with some satin and spandex options. We used gold as out color. The vendors they included in the package are well rated in their own right and were very easy to work with in tandem with the Officers' Club. We selected Alexandria Pastry Shop for the cake, Wilson Florist of Rosslyn for the flowers, and JK Music for the DJ.

The day of the staff was extremely helpful and the reception went smoothly. I wish they would have steamed the linens. The food was excellent, we wish we could have tried more of our cocktail hour food but we were so busy chatting with all our guests.

The only thing you will really have to do or designate friends/family to do at this location is set-up your "details" like table numbers, escort cards, table decorations, etc.

Ft. Meyer and its Wonderful staff provided a fantasy wedding for my son and his new wife. Every aspect if the day was notable and outstanding from the wedding ceremony to the cocktail hour and superb reception. The three venues were all prepared beautifully and professionally. The reception room was breathtaking and guests commented on the beautiful room, flowers and table settings. The coordinator, Nabayou, was excellent. He provided info, terrific vendor options and even helped in setting up a special cookie table to add our Italian tradition. Bravo to Ft. Meyer, their staff and the professionalism throughout to make it the best wedding our guests had ever attended. Thank you so much. Diane Ignatowski, mother of the groom.

The Officers Club was such a great experience! My friends and family cannot stop talking about how beautiful the room was, and how the delicious food. Nebeyou was great to work with -- he was extremely helpful and very efficient. My husband and I highly recommend the venue, especially the Koran ballroom. We had our wedding on a Sunday and it felt liked we had the entire club to ourselves!

Fort Myer is such a great place to get married. The base is located right on the edge of Virginia and Washington, DC so guests can easily travel from out of town and stay locally. The Old Post chapel is so beautiful and has so much history. It was also just recently renovated, so it looks great.

The Officer's Club is right next to the chapel, and offers a great package for a wedding reception. We upgraded to the Deluxe package, which includes the price per person for food, open premium bar, DJ, wedding cake, linens, decorations, flowers, and a cocktail hour with open bar and appetizers! I researched locations all over DC/VA and Fort Myer is the best value for your money, no question. They are so flexible, responsive, accommodating, and patient. Ask for Nebeyou at the main office, he was a 10! Always responded to emails, answered all our questions, worked with us to find creative ways to do things, and never complained. He's the best!

Five Star Catering @ Fort Myer went beyond expectations at our daughter's 3/1/14 wedding. When our guest list exceeded the original room reserved, they accommodated us by providing a larger (nicer) room at no extra cost. Great customer service! The buffet was exceptional. Our guests were raving about the food. Friendly staff provided superior service during the event. Cake melted in your mouth! Facility was clean (& impressive). Rest rooms were clean and spacious. Tables were nicely arranged - easy to get around and guests had more than enough room to eat comfortably. The business office was accommodating and helpful through every step. We highly recommend Five Star Catering in Fort Myers. They made this joyous occasion that much better.
