If you’re looking to give your guests a truly unique – maybe even once-in-a-lifetime – experience for your next event, this post was written for you!
Only in DC can you plan your corporate dinner or organization’s cocktail hour at the many beautiful and architecturally unique embassies in the area. DC proudly exists as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the nations, and as home to almost 200 embassies, ambassador residences, and international centers in the area, it’s sure to be a great place to gain experience, perspective, and knowledge. Embassy Row sits along Massachusetts Avenue between 18thand 35thstreets where you’re sure to run into diplomats from Australia, Greece, Japan, Italy, and more.
During the month of May, many embassies participated in Passport DC, opening their doors to tours and even hosting events such as concerts, lectures, cooking classes and more! You can contact a staff member for assistance [here] to get more information.
We recently had the pleasure of photographing a spectacular cocktail reception held at the British Embassy. As usual, Capital City Events did a phenomenal job of designing and coordinating this lovely event. This particular embassy makes its home inside a beautiful red brick building surrounded by shade trees and greenery – plus it has a nice breezeway at the entrance for resting or catching some fresh air. Inside, we love the fresh, bright look of the white walls and sparkling chandeliers. The British Embassy offers plenty of open space to mix and mingle, and we love the large outdoor area and lawn in the back. It’s well lit by the stunning white-columned steps leading up to the building – perfect for entertaining.
This evening was so much fun to attend and document (we learn something new every time) that we can’t wait to for the next embassy-themed event!
British Embassy Address: 3100 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008
