rehersal dinner downtown DC
Anyone have a good suggestion for a rehersal dinner location for approx. 20-24 people in Dupont or Penn Quarter area of DC
I think Tabard Inn in Dupont would be great for a rehersal dinner. Depending on the time of year, you should try to get the beautiful courtyard.
I think Poste in Penn Quarter has a private room and that might be good for a rehersal dinner.
Zola and perhaps Poste, their old special events person was a nightmare never responded, but their new person seems good.
I just had my rehearsal dinner at Equinox. It was fabulous. We had the front part of the restaurant (which was divided from the rest of the restaurant with a very heavy cutain) and patio area. That area comfortably sat 24 people.The prices were reasonable and the service was amazing.
I looked at Poste when I was scouting locations and I agree with the above poster that the events person was atrocious. Never managed to call me back.
Other options I looked at were BLT (seats 24 - family style service), The Source, and Tabard Inn. The big downside of Tabard Inn is that your guests need to choose their entrees beforehand. I always find that a little tacky.
Hope this helps!
