City Tavern Club

Special Events

Nestled in the heart of Georgetown and steeped in history, the City Tavern Club provides a unique and elegant venue for private events that embraces the Washington environment and experience. 

Whether hosting an elegant wedding reception in the Great Hall or an intimate dinner in the Governors Room, the City Tavern provides the opportunity for members and guests to entertain and socialize in the same space that many of our nation's Founding Fathers frequented during the early history of Washington, D.C.
Whether you are planning a small business meeting or a formal wedding, the City Tavern Club is the perfect place to host your event.  With over 5 floors of entertaining space, our Clubhouse can accommodate events of up to 500 people.  Our special events department prides itself on our superb services and attention to detail.  Our facilities are available to City Tavern Club members and their sponsored guests.
