Visit: Long View Gallery

21 10 2009

It’s not secret that I’ve been on a search for modern or industrial spaces for wedding receptions in the DC area [see previous blog post here and here]. It’s tough to find a raw, industry, loft-like spaces for events here in DC. I think my wish finally came true!

A sketch of what Long View Gallery will look like

I visited Long View Gallery a few weeks back. Party art gallery and party event space, this is a welcome addition in the Shaw/Convention Center area. It is the space DC has been waiting for, a great contrasting alternative to the plethora of historical buildings!

Suzi Molak, Special Events Director, walked me through the then-unfinished space but my mind was on over-drive dreaming of all the possibilities. She brings a wealth of special events experience. Here are some of the specs:

  • 5,000 Square Feet of Divisible Historic Warehouse Space
  • 400 Person Cocktail. The rear gallery can easily hold 200 people for a sit-down dinner with dance floor.
  • 20 Foot Ceilings with LED/Track Lighting system
  • Handicap Accessible
  • Finished Concrete Floors
  • Front and back 14′ and 11′ aluminum alloy glass doors
  • Flooded with Natural Light
  • Opens to historic Blagden Alley, which may be tented for outdoor use
  • Wall Space for Projections (walls are white & will have artwork)
  • Catering Staging Area
  • Sound System
  • Wireless Internet Access
  • Metro Station: Mt. Vernon Square & Yellow and Green Lines

Wow! I am really looking forward to the opening of this venue. DC is definitely in need of a space like this.

Thanks for the heads up!
