Great spot for socializing in the evening

This venue was spectacular. If you have any doubts about booking, just book now. You and your attendees will not regret the space. The event coordinator, Delmy Palmer, proved an influential, attentive, and accommodating professional during our 14 month planning process. Delmy ensured that all of our requests could be accommodated, provided various logistical recommendations based on her expert experience and recommended vendors with matching expertise to hers. This venue offered modern accommodations and a multi-functioning space for all weather conditions. Further, it provided incredible views of notable DC landmarks, such as the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and Union Station. We did not need a photo booth because the rooftop views were all that we needed for friends and family to take memorable snapshots. The out-of-town guests enjoyed being able to experience our wedding and DC all at once with the amazing views. Our photographers also made good use of the natural backdrop. This venue was a dream and made for one of the best days of our lives. We could not imagine having our wedding anywhere else in DC. This venue delivers in every respect, with a top-notch team.

Alittle hard to find but kept us warm inside on the rooftop and kept the food and drinks coming. Stunning view of the Capitol as well.

I had my wedding reception at the Capitol View at 400 Rooftop in August 2018 and it was a dream come true. Working with Delmy, the venue coordinator, was incredible. She was the most responsive vendor, accommodated all of my requests, and helped to provide me with a vision for the evening, including working with my day of coordinator to setup the rooftop. She was extremely flexible, allowing me to drop off my alcohol and decorations the Thursday before my wedding and pick everything back up on Monday post wedding. Delmy even let me come checkout the rooftop while they were preparing for a wedding to help me get ideas for decoration – you really don’t need much with the views, I went very simple greens and candles. The venue views are breathtaking. Even my local guests couldn’t get over the perfect view of the Capitol and Union Station – perfect back drop for pictures all night. The lower terrace is where we had cocktail hour – the space is huge and comes with high-top tables – view of the Washington Monument. The upper rooftop is where we had the reception with the views, also a very large space, comfortably fitting 150 at tables under the covered portion of the rooftop with a large dance floor. (There is room to fit much more than my guest count) I added string lights draped from the retractable rooftop and had candles on the tables; that was all the lighting I needed for the evening (7pm-12am) – my pictures came out great. I used Corcoran catering – very familiar with the space and working with Delmy (Maryana and Delmy are a great pair). I was extremely lucky with the weather so I didn’t need the AC/heat nor plastic siding but that is all included if needed. If you are looking for an affordable venue that gives the perfect DC ambience – this is it! More...

What an amazing venue to have any event. It felt like you were on the deck of a cruise ship with the beautiful black drop of the Capitol in the background. It was open air... it was beautiful but when it started to drizzle there was a beautiful canopy that still allowed you to enjoy the beautiful view. More...

Capitol View at 400 was the perfect venue for our wedding, and I can't say enough good things about the venue coordinator, Delmy. She was so on top of all the details and made us feel confident that everything would go smoothly. The view is obviously amazing, but the staff truly made it work. The rain held off for our ceremony outside on the top level, then rained while we were under the tent for the speeches. The venue staff came out immediately and zipped up the sides so guests wouldn't get wet and relocated the bars, without any disruption or people really noticing. Then after the rain stopped, they reopened the sides so people could back out and enjoy the deck and views again. It was a really smooth operation. They were also so helpful in directing guests upstairs, to restrooms, etc. and helping to coordinate with the vendors during the delivery along with our wedding planner. The value of the venue was better than other rooftop DC venues as it included the excellent staff, tables, chairs, bars and other furniture for the ceremony and reception. Definitely recommend if looking for a classic DC wedding! More...

Excellent place for a party
Beautiful rooftop. They even have air conditioning that makes it so chill and relaxing.

We picked the venue for the view, and it did not disappoint! Delmy and her team were great throughout our planning process, they always had vendor recommendations and quickly answered any questions I had. They worked well with the month-of coordinators we ended up hiring, and with our catering team. It rained on our wedding day, but Delmy and her team made it so we could still enjoy the view on the roof throughout the night. And once they rain let up they opened up the roof so we could enjoy the fresh air and get the inside-outside vibe we wanted. They took care of everything behind the scenes, letting my groom and I relax and enjoy the day! More...

Don't hesitate: book this NOW! You will never find a more professional, caring, knowledgeable person than Delmy Palmer, the Concierge/Event Planner for this venue. She was truly my partner in planning and executing the reception for my niece. She herself will be at your event to make sure all goes well. AND, there is no better view in all of D.C. If you are having a reception in Washington, DC, why not take advantage of the drop-dead gorgeous decoration called the Capitol Dome, which is RIGHT THERE, and so close you feel you can reach out and touch it. Worth every penny, as Delmy and her team help you think of everything so your anxiety quotient goes to very near zero. Work with her directly so that all issues are resolved from the beginning. A special note: the venue provides tables and the lovely gold chairs at no extra cost, unlike most D.C. venues. Parking is available in the building at a very reasonable rate, so no worries there. And, she works closely with Corcoran Caterers. Before you groan, be very grateful to have Maryana and her team and their phenomenal food presented to you without the eternal trudging from caterer to caterer. We got raves about the food, which Maryana's guiding hand helped me choose. We had a dinner buffet that was a wonderful alternative to a plated dinner and much less expensive while being beautifully presented. A magical evening and you can have one, too. Forgot to reassure you that the venue is year-round with an industrial-strength air conditioning system that is able to beat the D.C. heat and roll-down plastic curtains to hold-in the air conditioning (or heat!) and keep out any rain, so your day will not be ruined. Wish I had another wedding to plan with this team! More...

Delmy is a true professional. She manages Capitol View with such grace and patience. When we first looked at the venue, we just knew it was the one. It had that "It" factor we were looking for. We looked at over 20 venues just in DC, including converted yoga studios, hotels, museums and art galleries. The roof of Capitol View, with the air conditioned pavilion and breathtaking views is just in a different league than the other places we explored.

Leading up to the wedding, in the year of planning, Delmy was always so quick to reply to our emails and give us helpful tips throughout the process. She encouraged us to come to the venue multiple times to get ideas for our big day and took extra time for our final walk through to ensure everything ran smoothly day of.

For the few days leading up to the wedding, Delmy had such patience with us as we made multiple trips to her office to drop off the alcohol, centerpieces, guest books and decorations. We didn't hire a day of coordinator and honestly, we didn't need one with Delmy and her team on site. She ensured everything ran smoothly and checked in with me and my husband multiple times to make sure we were happy and healthy!

To put it simply, Delmy knows what she's doing and she does it so well. She brings years of experience which makes her brides at ease and focused on what's important on the wedding day!

We couldn’t have imagined a better wedding experience at the Capitol View. Two things in particular stood out as highlights—the memorable space, and working with Delmy Palmer, the venue coordinator. First, the space: even on a rainy and unseasonably cold day, our guests shared unending compliments about the classy and elegant nature of the space. The beautiful views of the Capitol Dome and Union Station from the venue fit with our theme, and also served as a thank you to our guests for traveling to DC to celebrate with us. As for Delmy—she was the perfect planning partner for our wedding: always responsive, understanding, and caring. Even with a few final hurdles (notably the weather) that altered our original plan for cocktail hour, Delmy handled everything perfectly in stride, and helped to ensure the perfect wedding reception. The rest of Delmy’s team was very helpful and professional as well. We are so grateful to the Capitol View and Delmy—we wouldn’t have changed a thing. More...

We had a great experience at the venue – we lucked out and had the most incredible weather. All of our guests loved the space – it was a beautiful view and had a very open feeling. Delmy, the venue coordinator, did an amazing job. She was on top of everything immediately, handled our many questions, and provided great advice about the layout and logistics. She also went above and beyond, as our wedding planner was not on top of things. Delmy picked up the slack and made the day perfect. She even went out and bought something during the reception when she realized it wasn’t delivered (our wedding planner just said to tell people we didn’t have any). The crew that Delmy worked with was also great – they were so nice and helpful (especially Sam). We’d love to have another party there! More...

Delmy is the venue coordinator and she is fantastic! I don't even know where else to begin with this review. When we first looked at the venue online we weren't really sure what it had to offer, but Delmy called us within seconds of submitting an inquiry and she was helpful throughout the whole process (and she gave us a great deal!). The venue is literally just a rooftop with two levels. The tented area is air conditioned (which was great for my August wedding) and it's really bare so you can really make the space your own. For me it was great, because the backdrop is what I was really looking for. You are literally a stone's throw away from the Capitol and Union Station and from one corner you can see the Washington Monument.

For our wedding, the venue was probably the best part. It ended up being a beautiful day and all of our out-of-town guests loved the view! We were actually surprised but how well everything turned out.

I highlight recommend this secret spot to see the DC views and Delmy is professional, caring, and great to work with!

The Capitol View at 400 is one of the most amazing event locations in all of DC. The venue overlooks Union Station in downtown DC. The view of the Capitol grounds and dome are breath taking. Because of the way the venue is setup, we were able to have our wedding event all in one location. The multiple level decks of the roof allowed for us to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on one level and our dinner on the top level under their beautiful covered deck.

There were 120 people at our wedding and there was plenty of room for dancing and partying all night. That being said, the space felt quite cozy and intimate for our big day.

Working with Delmy leading up to our wedding day was nothing less than a dream. She was attentive to our needs and was always responsive to our emails and phone calls.

The venue also allowed our labradoodle Grizwold to be part of our wedding day on the roof deck.

All in all, the Capitol View at 400 is the perfect venue for weddings or any other special events.

We had our wedding here two weekends ago and it couldn't have been better! Anytime I had questions about the space and what I could or couldn't do, Delmy always responded quickly. She was a huge help throughout the entire process. She led me to our caterer, our florist, our DJ, and helped us find a hotel block for our out of town guests. And anytime I was unsure about how things would work, she let me come back and look at the space. A few weeks beforehand, I met with Delmy and our caterer and set up a back up plan in case of rain. Luckily, the weather held out...it was pretty cold...but no rain!
The only thing i was concerned about with this space, was how the guests would find their way around. But it all worked out! They had a person in the lobby and at the top of the stairs point people in the right direction.
The one negative, there was a bathroom that I understood to just be the wedding parties, and that didn't happen. Everyone was trying to use our bathroom. We tried putting a hand written sign on the door, but that didn't work. Luckily, nothing was taken and when i needed in, people would move out!
All in all, the view makes the space. That was all everyone was talking about. It was a hit and i have only heard positive feed back. Can't wait to go back! A friend who was at our wedding just booked it for her upcoming party! Success!!

A Rooftop wedding...can't bet that in my opinion. What makes a wedding besides the food is location and its scenery, the capital view rooftop has an amazing view of Washington, DC, the building is practically righting next to Capitol Hill building and across from Union station. My guest were amazed how beautiful the scenery was and nothing but showers of great compliments. Definitely, a way to make an impression. Delmy, the event coordinator, was very sweet and accommodating to me. My photographer was overwhelmed by all the great shots it was capturing no matter where you stood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to do an event and leave a memory, we got married over a month ago and family and friends still talk about how gorgeous the wedding was.

So .. We just had our wedding there this past weekend September 12th.. It was an evening wedding from 7 til almost 1 am ...we had the space all day which was great .. We hired Davinci florists who did the centerpieces , dance floor , up lighting ,huppah,and decor.. What's great about the roof top is that's it's a blank canvas and you can make it anyway you want .. We delt with the director who's name was Delmy and she made us feel so comfortable from the very beginning .. She was amazing and so sweet and accommodating and really cared about us and our wedding. I have to say that we had an amazing magical wedding ... The weather that day started off really bad and it was raining off and on.. Which would of put a big damper on our wedding if it did continue .. We had about 200 people coming and we needed all the space possible .. Our prayer must have been answered because it stoped raining and the weather was absolutely perfect .. People couldn't believe the venue .. They kept saying that the views were amazing .. We were so blessed to have the perfect wedding .. The small hick ups were nothing compared to the amazing weather we had .. The dj was amazing as well .. We worked on the music for a couple months until we got it right .. We used dj Andrew Hyatt .. For the ceromony we used the lower space of the venue .. We had our ceromony at 9:30 pm and it was beautiful .. The space had 200 chivary chairs and a lot of tables and high tops .. The price of venue wasn't to bad compared to what we got .. I give the place 5 stars because your wedding is supposed to be spectacular and memorable and this venue gave it all to us.. The staff was great especially delmy.. She was accommodative and met with Us as many times prior as we wanted .. If your looking for a unique venue that everyone will admiring for months to come this is it .. If you have anymore questions about our wedding please ask with pleasure.. Psuissa1@ yahoo.com More...
