  • Brittany & the Team at City Winery were absolutely incredible to work with. Their willingness to go above and beyond to ensure that my client's wedding ran smoothly, met the needs of the client and then some & all with a wonderful and spirit and smiles. Beautiful venue, attention to detail, willingness to accommodate the needs of the client and personal connection are all reasons why it was a joy to partner together on this wedding.

  • From our first meeting with Justine to the many months leading up to the wedding she was responsive, knowledgeable and organized. The venue was perfect for the size and nature of our reception and the space was so beautiful on its own that it only required minimal decorating. The food portions were generous and everything was delicious. It was truly our dream wedding and we couldn’t have asked for more.

  • We had an awesome experience with Justine and Brittany at City Winery. The venue was so accommodating to make our Wedding day perfect. The Wine Garden Rooftop is a beautiful setting for a City Wedding and it has an elegant, rustic, modern look / vibe to it. City Winery is constantly adding into the look of the venue, they even covered the walls with Ivy in the rooftop and it really added into our overall ceremony look. Also, we had about 110 guests with several food restrictions and they accomodated/catered to all of them, everyone was talking about how delicious the food was! Moreover, our wedding was a mix of Panamanian and Jewish traditions and we had several unusual requests such as a horah dance and an hora loca with Panamanian Carnival dancers. Let me just say that Justine and Brittany just went with it and even offered more than a few recommendations along the way. We highly enjoyed our experience at City Winery and wouldn't be surprised if they become one of the top venues in t... Read more

  • I worked with City Winery DC as a vendor for a wedding and I loved the entire experience. The venue was amazing and the staff was really accommodating, ensuring that I was good to go while unloading, setting up, and loading. Brittany and her team were amazing and I really appreciated the open communication leading up to the event as well as during the event. Definitely looking forward to working with City Winery DC again.

  • When we started looking for a venue for our 150-175 guest wedding, we knew we wanted to be in or around DC. We also knew we didn't want anything too stuffy or too fussy. That was really hard in DC! Everything big was not really our style. We wanted a more laid back vibe, with a little bit of an edge to it. We LOVED City Winery! It was a little bit rustic, a little bit industrial and a whole lot of amazing. Plus, it gave us the advantages of an all-in-one, like a catering hall or hotel, with a hell of a lot more character. The food was absolutely AMAZING (The short rib entree was to die for!) and our band LOVED playing at this concert venue. It looked, sounded, and tasted amazing. The staff was friendly and those in charge of coordinating the event did a great job. (I would recommend hiring a day-of planner to make sure everything goes seamlessly.) We used the wine garden floor (GREAT indoor-outdoor COVERED space) for the ceremony and the convert venue floor for the reception. Loved it!

  • Booking City Winery for our wedding was the best decision ever! We took our hard hat tour back in December 2017. The venue was under major construction and still had leftover furniture from the old Love Nightclub that occupied the building. Colleen did such a good job working with us and walking us through their vision for the space that we took a leap of faith and booked the venue for our October 2018 wedding. Colleen was patient, responsive and extremely helpful! I was planning the entire wedding by myself with no planner and Colleen worked with me through every question and/or concern that I had. I honestly couldn't have gotten through the planning process without her guidance. Unfortunately, Colleen left City Winery a few weeks before our wedding day but she informed me that I was in good hands with Brittany. I was a bit nervous about our POC changing right before the wedding but Brittany was awesome! The transition was seamless! Brittany helped me finalize all the details and kept... Read more

  • We had the time of our lives and we want to do it all over again. Our guests are still talking about what a wonderful time we had/. The venue is amazing! You get an outdoor feel but are under a roof. The food. Amazing! Chef Brandon did an amazing job and we are foodies who were pleased! Beverage selection is amazing! Working with Colleen made planning super easy! They are flexible and fair. Everything was amazing! We could not have asked for more!

  • 5 Stars all around! We held our wedding at CW's Wine Garden last weekend. It was amazing! From meeting and taking a hard-hat tour in February, booking the venue, and the day of our wedding, Colleen was super-responsive, helpful and kept us on track as far as planning goes. On our wedding day, from the moment we arrived, getting ready in the bridal suite, first look photos, ceremony and reception, the staff was truly first-class! Colleen and her team did an excellent job executing all of the details surrounding the big day. THANK YOU GUYS!

    Stacey & Jimmy, It was such a pleasure working with both of you! I was honored to be part of your day. Thank you for allowing us to host your wedding. Looking forward to seeing you both soon. -Colleen & City Winery Family

  • We had a great experience the day of the event, the food was amazing, the bartenders were great, and all of the wait staff were attentive to our guests. Our wedding went off without any major problems. However, we owe a lot of the background work to our month-of-coordinator as we were disappointed with the coordination support we received from City Winery the year leading up to the wedding. As others mentioned, we worked with 3 different staff members from signing our contract to the day of. While our initial contact seemed on top of her game, and with each new coordinator we grew less and less confident in their capacity. Our final coordinator was nice, but seemed disorganized and this was illustrated during our final walk through. The coordinator did not take any notes during the final walk through and we spent the weeks leading up to our wedding confirming all the details we had discussed during our walk through- I was surprised by this lack of professionalism. There were also m... Read more

  • We booked City Winery after a hard hat tour in late 2017 / early 2018, and were excited about the reasonable price for an all-inclusive (read: EASY) event space in DC. We used the 3rd & 4th floors for our wedding of ~150. We liked that there was a lot of space, outdoor and indoor space, multiple bars, big bathrooms, nice (though sparse) decor. Our DJ *loved* the sound system. There are other reviews about the staff turnover, and we had the same experience: booked with Colleen, then were given Brittany ~3 weeks before our wedding when Colleen left. The timing obviously was not ideal... Brittany was very green at the time when she led our final walk-through, so Erin the Venue director ended up being point person for our wedding. I'm not sure if Brittany even ended up working our wedding, which made the disorganization of the final walkthrough unnecessarily concerning for us. The elevator still wasn't working by the time of our wedding, so we had to have guests use a service elevat... Read more

  • We're so glad we chose City Winery over the many other venue options in the DC area. Unlike other venues we toured, City Winery was able to offer us: (1) a huge amount of flexible space, (2) amazing food, (3) an indoor-outdoor vibe (4) casual yet classy atmosphere. From the moment we walked into City Winery, we loved that it's brightness and openness. We used the wine garden and rooftop levels, which fit our ~160 guest size perfectly. We had the dancefloor set up on the patio, which gave us plenty of room, and we also left the upstairs rooftop open to guests during the reception. During the planning process and especially on the day of the event, Brittany and her team did an outstanding job delivering exactly what we wanted. If there were any mistakes, I never heard about them! We didn't have a day-of coordinator so were a little (okay, very) nervous about pulling everything off, but Brittany really did an outstanding job and made sure that we had everything we wanted, exactly how we w...

  • First things first: this is an incredibly beautiful space for a wedding. We held our ceremony on the roof deck, which was gorgeous even in pouring rain (and our guests were dry), and our cocktail hour in the outdoor wine garden and dinner inside. The spaces were all perfect, our guests had an amazing time, and the food and wine was superb as well. We really felt like we lucked out in terms of the space and the food: the day itself was really magical, and it was a great experience for our guests, because the venue itself had such a great setup and food/drink. But we also felt extremely disappointed in the lackluster service that we received from City Winery's staff, especially given the very sizable administrative fees. We first started planning our wedding with Colleen, and signed the contract with her because we felt so confident in her work; unfortunately, she soon afterwards left City Winery and we began to work with Brittany, who seemed solid. We had been promised by Brittany th... Read more

  • City winery was a great location. The staff was very helpful and responsive to emails. The whole day was beautiful. Only issues we had was the large amount of turn over. We were connected to three different coordinators throughout the year due to people leaving their position which was frustrating. The second was the difficulty we had scheduling our tasting/walk through. Their tastings are only offered Monday through Friday from 12-3 which is unhelpful when you had a full time job. It was also difficult to find a day that the chef was available for the tasting. Overall, I would recommend this location but make sure you’re flexible with scheduling meetings!

  • We received so many compliments on both the space and the food at City Winery DC. We were one of the earlier weddings after City Winery DC opened, so there were a number of unknowns in the months leading up to the wedding, but we're so happy that we took a chance on a venue that was unfinished when we first walked through. City Winery DC has spaces large and small, we chose the third and fourth floors for a semi-outdoor ceremony on the roof and an indoor-outdoor reception on the third floor. The staff was totally open to setting up the space in any way that we wanted. It was great that the space is totally wired for sound and that City Winery DC has tables that can be set up in any configuration. Early on there was a bit of confusion about how many people could fit in the indoor wine garden space, but by the time of our wedding the staff had a much better sense of how many tables should be fit into the room. We loved that we didn't need any rentals (i.e. chairs, tables, lights, linens,... Read more

  • Part of the letter my daughter wrote to CW after her wedding. We arrive at the venue at 10:00 am, ceremony was at 5:00, The sun literally blinded guests and the wedding party as they were walking down the isle (not looking forward to those pictures) Has this situation never come up during previous ceremony’s or events? We absolutely would have welcomed advice from CW in order to arrange the room to avoid this. Please consider this as other brides are planning their ceremony's. Knowing the weather can be cold in November, one of our first questions was how the outdoor space would be heated. We were told there would be heaters. We assumed that meant the rooms could be warmed to a “reasonable” temperature to have an event. Although the temperature was not that cold the wind was brisk and as soon as we walked to the bridal suite my mother was concerned. She asked CW employees several times how they were going to warm the room. Initially we were given incorrect inform... Read more
