Looking for the most fascinating historic venue in DC to host your next spectacular event? The Decatur House is one of the most prestigious homes in all of Washington, and it’s located only a block away from the White House for prime DC touring proximity! The Decatur House is known for hosting a wide variety of events including large outdoor celebrations in addition to intimate indoor gatherings. They have years of hosting experience and have thought of everything you might need for your personalized event.

The venue offers three main areas for events: The Carriage House accommodates 250 standing or 200 seated guests and features elegant, tall ceilings with white wooden beams—it’s truly breathtaking! 

Meanwhile, the Entertaining Parlors accommodate 120 standing or 80 seated guests and feature gorgeous chandeliers, detailed wood floors, and full-length mirrors that make it feel airy and spacious—the perfect place for a small party. 

Lastly, the lower level serves 30 standing or 10 seated guests. But you truly have to see the grandeur for yourself. Check out their website and take a video walkthrough of the parlors! 

The Courtyard, the stunning outdoor space, is spacious and open, perfect for catching the evening breeze. The brick-laid paths provide beautiful detail and a pop of deep red color. Because the courtyard hosts 300 standing or 250 seated guests, it’s the perfect location for an outdoor reception. We love the Decatur House for its elegant props, historic accents and meticulous details. Their versatile space comes with a prime DC location! All their rooms can transform to fit any type of event you’re looking to host!
