[via downtown dc ]
Looking for a restaurant venue in Washington, DC? Or how about a non-hotel venue that is in a prime downtown location, for a decent price? Look no further than the Old Ebbitt Grill. If you live in DC, then you more than likely have heard of this place. It is chock full of history (established in 1856) and is located right next to the White House on Lafayette Square! Talk about location, location, location.
I actually had my rehearsal dinner here (which I would also recommend!) The staff was courteous and willing to help us reserve a room and build a menu that fit our budget and tastes.
That being said, Old Ebbitt Grill has a wide option of rooms for all different sized weddings. The atrium can be rented for up to 250 guests! They have packages available for $95-$125pp, that include a 5-hour rental of the Atrium, premium open bar, a there course menu, cutting/service of wedding cake, champagne toast, AND wine service tableside (Additional gratuity and tax will be added to the per person cost).
If you have done ANY research on Washington, DC venue & catering (and if you haven’t, then I will tell you now) THIS IS A DEAL!
You can find more information, pictures of real weddings, and sample menus on their website, under the wedding section here.
