What do our PATRONS say

(5/5 Stars)

“I attended a friend of a friend’s birthday party here in this gorgeous facility w/Stevens S. Wow. What a fabulous time. From the bar to the dancefloor to the DJ to the buffet, everything was perfect! It was a “white” party so everyone had on something white and that made the look even more art deco glamorous! I love this place! Especially their take on the crab dip. Delish. I’m a huge fan!”

“Just finished hosting an event for 130 here. The venue is classy Art Deco, it makes you feel transported to the days of Greta Garbo. The owners met with us personally and made great suggestions which complimented our planning. The food was abundant and delicious, the bar well stocked and staff helpful and amiable. Definitely a 5 star event location!”

“The Carlyle Club is a romantic and unique wedding venue! We received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the club was and what a great space it is for a wedding. Also its location is super convenient (few miles from the airport and 2 blocks from the metro – plus we did a room block at the Embassy Suites and our guests could just walk over – no need for transportation!!!).”

“[Sharon and Brennan] both went above and beyond to meet all of our needs. They never once said no to anything my favorite quotes from Sharon that we heard throughout the process were: ‘We can do that…we can make that work…no problem…I’ve got it…don’t worry.’ And she was right and came through on everything! … This is the #1 place for a wedding!”

“If you’re looking for old-fashioned romance and entertainment, try the new Carlyle Club in Alexandria, where the sounds of the swing era play in an atmosphere unlike anything else on the night-life scene.”

“The decor is great, very old school big band jazz club kind of feel. The wait staff was on top of their game, very attentive. They did a great job giving recommendations and just being sociable which was also nice.”
