Just blocks from the Dupont Circle and Farragut North metro stations and steps away from several bus lines, we are in a prime location for colleagues, classmates, and community members to come together for their next big board meeting, leadership retreat, or life cycle event.

The Space

Our Community Events rental space encompasses the entire first floor of the townhouse, which includes a vibrant, modern layout – prime for productivity. You will have access to a fully furnished living room, dining room, unisex bathroom, and kitchen area. The space includes a mix of lounge style seating and tables to cater to your project needs. Each of these areas can be sectioned off with the original 19th century doors, which are set on sliding tracks for ease of use. 

The Amenities

The Community Events space has a full kitchen equipped with a Keurig (coffee not included), toaster oven, microwave, large refrigerator, freezer, oven warmer, and dinner set of 16 available to all organizations renting the space. The kitchen area also includes 6 bar stools seated around a large granite island. The dining room seats 10 people, and we have a second table available for organizations looking for seating for up to 20 people. Organizations are invited to use our full dinner set, with the understanding that it is to be rinsed and loaded into the dishwasher at the conclusion of the event.

The Extras

The townhouse includes private parking spots located directly behind the townhouse that can be rented for an additional fee. When hosting an event, you will get a unique, secure passcode for ease of entry and security throughout your event. The floor-plans can be moved around in order to meet the needs of any meeting, event, or retreat.

The Support

GatherDC’s Office Manager will support you every step of the way as you plan and execute a successful event suited to your needs. GatherDC staff will be available to assist with any requests, answer questions, and make your event-hosting experience as smooth as possible.
