Cassandra and her staff were awesome. They made my bride and I feel special. They help walked meh through the panning while my bride was out of town. The price for the service they gave us was a real steal. More importantly the food was outstanding. You have to select the crab cakes as part of your menu, you won't regret it.

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.

Truly a great wedding venue, particularly if you are looking for a "city" feel for your wedding. My husband and I really liked how open and unique the ceremony space on the steps is -- at first, I wasn't sure about it, but the more I looked at it the more I liked it. It's also very practical because it's indoors, but there's natural light, so it's wonderful for photos. (One caveat is that it IS downtown Washington, DC, so there's always a chance of some random noise from the large lobby, which happened during our ceremony -- but what can you do? It was still a great wedding.) The bar is wonderful for cocktail hour, and the entire space is laid out well for transitions. Additionally, the City Club is priced very competitively in comparison to other downtown DC venues and hotels. I highly recommend at least getting a quote from them.
Cassandra, the event coordinator, is truly oustanding! Over the 11 months of planning my wedding, I must have emailed her hundreds of questions, and she answered all of them promptly -- sometimes within the hour. She was so accommodating with our many changes, and listened carefully to what we wanted to ensure it happened. The food was great, and the service was top notch as well. We had one minor misunderstanding with charges for several vendor meals, but the City Club was kind enough to write off this charge for us. (I recommend making sure your vendors know whether or not they should accept a meal to avoid confusion.) Our guests all raved about the venue and asked how we had found it! The City Club is a true gem, and we highly recommend it to future couples.

The City Club of Washington is THE best place to have your reception in Washington. The venue is cool and upscale without being stuffy, and in a great location. downtown. We didn't use the parking garage. The City Club is closed to outside guests on the weekends, so we had the place to yourselves. It's rather intimate despite being spacious and definitely perfect for a wedding. They absolutely delivered on our big day! The catering was great, the club was immaculate, and our day was flawless. They really took care of us and will take care of you too.

The City Club of Washington was a fantastic site for our ceremony and reception. The appetizers, dinner, and various deserts were delicious. The servers, bartenders, etc were wonderful to all of our guests. We worked with Cassandra to organize our event and she was there to keep things moving the day of too. Cassandra was excelent and helped us as the number of guests increased, the type of food changed, and we altered other details. You will be happy if you choose the City Club of DC as your wedding venue.

There is no way I could possibly say enough good things about the City Club. Suzanne there is amazing and was largely responsible for the success of the event, single-handedly. She is organized, attentive, and very calm -- all great things to have around you, not only when planning, but, importantly, the day of. The venue itself is gorgeous and flows wonderfully for weddings. I could really ramble on and on about this, but I'll just say that I could not have imagined getting married anywhere else. If I had it to do all over again, I would always choose the City Club -- maybe we'll even do anniversary parties there!

The City Club and Deb Roth made our wedding day absolutely wonderful. They gave us a beautiful venue, delicious food and superior service. After months of searching for a venue, we stumbled across The City Club's Columbia Square venue. Their Franklin Square location looked more appealing in the photos, but I was unable to coordinate a time to meet. It happened that Deb Roth at the Columbia Square location was available on a weekend we would be visiting from NY, so we decided to give it a shot. The website pictures didn't do it much justice. The club was beautiful and the bathrooms were outstanding (you'd be amazed at how many venues had undesirable bathrooms). What really sold us though, was Deb. She was wonderfully professional; level-headed, courteous and amazingly accommodating. Our budget was modest for the DC area, but she assured us we would be able to work with it. No matter how flustered I felt, Deb was always calm and focused. A trait not to be underestimated in your event coordinator. I'd like to return to list the details of the food, as they surpassed our expectations. For now, I'll say this... everyone at City Club was awesome!

After months of searching for a venue, we stumbled across The City Club's Columbia Square venue. Their Franklin Square location looked more appealing in the photos, but I was unable to coordinate a time to meet. It happened that Deb Roth at the Columbia Square location was available on a weekend we would be visiting from NY, so we decided to give it a shot. The website pictures didn't do it much justice. The club was beautiful and the bathrooms were outstanding (you'd be amazed at how many venues had undesirable bathrooms). What really sold us though, was Deb. She was wonderfully professional; level-headed, courteous and amazingly accommodating. Our budget was modest for the DC area, but she assured us we would be able to work with it. No matter how flustered I felt, Deb was always calm and focused. A trait not to be underestimated in your event coordinator. I'd like to return to list the details of the food, as they surpassed our expectations. For now, I'll say this... everyone at City Club was awesome! Read less
