Where do I even begin??? First of all, we fell in love with this venue from the start. It was exactly what we were looking for for our vintage themed wedding. Sharon and Brennan own the venue. Sharon coordinates while Brennan handles operations. They were both so welcoming and accommodating from our very first meeting. It was the second venue we looked at in the area and we just fell in love. They were very flexible with our ask for a daytime/brunch wedding Friday which we knew was not very common. Brennan was prompt with all the contract information and flexible with any changes we requested. Second of all, YOU GUYS THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. We did a tasting about a year before our wedding date to pick the menu for the day. We tried literally everything they had and they even boxed up all the leftovers for us to take home. It was so hard to pick just two dishes for lunch because everything was so delicious. The day of, all everyone could talk about was how great their food was. Could not have been happier with that! Third of all, Sharon is a creative genius. I was so nervous about how everything was going to come together as far as decor on the day of. I had spent months collecting decorations for the entire wedding and had no clue how any of it was going to turn out. I handed it all off to Sharon the night before the wedding and the day of WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. The room was stunningly elegant and also simple, exactly what we had hoped for. Sharon was also gracious enough to let us use anything the Carlyle had in our decor as well. She was very reverent with my great grandparents' wedding photos and crystal and she even used some decorations from her own wedding! Seriously amazing! If you are looking for a venue in the Alexandria area, do not hesitate to contact them!

The Carlyle Club is the most beautiful and convenient venue, I highly recommend it! But what really made the day special was Sharon, she spent so much time making our day special. Everything was better than I planned or could have ever dreamt. I had so many compliments about the reception, best wedding ever from friends all the way up to my grandparents. Sharon thought through all the details to the point when I walked in I had to hold back tears. I want to relive that night again and plan on going back often!

The Carlyle Club is an incredible wedding venue. We have absolutely no regrets about selecting this venue for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Every aspect of my wedding there went off without a hitch, and I can’t thank Sharon and Brennan enough. A major perk of going with Carlyle is that they are all-in one: day-of coordination, bar, table service, food, and venue. You can do your entire wedding sequence there (as we did) or part of it. The administrative components were easily addressed through phone, text, and in-person meetings. Sharon had many helpful suggestions for us, without being overbearing at all. The bar staff and table servers were incredibly polite and efficient. Because Carlyle is a full-service kitchen, everything is cooked fresh. We went with the Delmonico steak, salmon, and butternut squash ravioli as our meal options. The portions are perfect, and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food. They are also a full-service bar and will make your signature cocktails – no matter what the ingredients, they’ll make it happen! They even allowed us to customize some of the beer selection. Sharon also serves as a day-of coordinator. She’s been doing this for a while and has seen pretty much everything that can go wrong, so she has her stuff together for sure. She has a very creative eye. The club is decorated in an Art Deco style, and has the ambiance of a cool jazz/dinner theater (note: they also do concerts). They were priced very fairly for an all-in-one venue. We also appreciated transparency in their pricing structure and willing to be flexible with us to make it work for our budget.

We had our wedding reception at the Carlyle Club in June 2017 and it was beautiful! The Carlyle Club was our perfect venue. The staff are ready and willing to help you create your vision for your wedding reception. Sharon worked with us on setting up table arrangements, lighting, and colors for the wedding. She suggested some great ideas that we were able to incorporate into our reception as well. The food at the Carlyle Club is also excellent! So many people commented to us after the wedding about how great the selection was. Further, the staff were so friendly and helpful all through our event. The Carlyle Club made our dream for our wedding reception come true! We highly recommend the Carlyle Club for your wedding!

The best decision that we made in planning our wedding was choosing the Carlyle Club for our reception! Sharon and Brennan were more than accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure every last detail was perfect. They truly treated our wedding as if we were their family, and made sure that everything went off without a hitch. Sharon treated me as if I were her only client, and somehow knew how to pull together all of the random ideas in my head. During the planning process they were incredibly responsive and helpful, and the day of the wedding they were invaluable! As a very detail-oriented and picky bride, I can honestly say that they made the reception perfect and did it in a way that was completely stress free on our end. The food was beyond delicious, the wait staff was extremely polite and the space itself is beautiful. When during your wedding, you are excited to get to the reception to hug the wedding coordinator, you know you made the right choice! THANK YOU Sharon and Brennan, we are incredibly grateful for you!

I do not have enough time in the day to describe how amazing Sharon, Brennan and the rest of the staff at Carlyle Club are. They were not only the hosts of our dream wedding, but they offered us guidance throughout the whole process. From suggestions of vendors to wedding day timelines and even advice on what to pack in case of dress emergencies, Sharon truly treated us as though we were part of their family. In our very first encounter, Sharon and Brennan were warm, honest and inviting and every interaction after that was the same. The food at the Carlyle Club is DELICIOUS and well worth visiting at least for a meal. Sharon acted as day-of coordinator and helped our wedding go off without a hitch! She helped organize our wedding party, made sure my husband and I ate, made special exceptions to the menu for those who had dietary needs and helped to decorate our wedding BEAUTIFULLY. Our wedding used vinyl records in a lot of our decor, and at our our sweetheart table, I was so touched that Sharon included her father's records as our place settings. These small but sentimental things really brought a sense of calm and love to our event. They allowed us to truly tailor our wedding to our needs. Sharon, Brennan and the Carlyle Club are without question the best venue for those looking to have a fun, loving and stress-free wedding. Thank you so much Sharon and Brennan for making our special day so spectacular -- words cannot express the gratitude we feel.

Our wedding reception at the Carlyle club on May 20 2017 was incredible! Sharon and Brennan were great to work with ...from our initial meeting, to the tasting, to the logistics meetings, Sharon and Brennan were fantastic! Sharon made our reception absolutely beautiful - totally surpassing all my expectations. Throughout our planning, Sharon had tons of ideas. She made sure everything was perfect - she decorated and set up the room, made sure different vendors were there, and just made sure the reception went smoothly overall. The Carlyle Club is also a beautiful and unique venue, the food is delicious, and the staff is great! We would recommend the Carlyle club to anyone looking for the best wedding venue!! Thank you Sharon, Brennan, and the Carlyle Club for making our day perfect!!!

We got married at the Carlyle Club in April 2017. It is and awesome venue, with great owners. Brennan and Sharon have it down to a science! They helped us in almost all aspects of the planning stage, especially pointing us in the right direction in terms of other vendors. All in all, wish I could replicate the experience, but I know this was a once in a lifetime!

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Carlyle Club and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and the layout is perfect for a wedding. Even though rain prevented guests from using the outdoor patio during the cocktail hour, between the circular bar area and the back room where we had our photobooth, there was plenty of room for all our guests to hang out while the main space was flipped for the reception. The owners, Sharon and Brennan, are so so helpful and nice and you can tell they really care about the events they host. And Sharon is a master decorator. I did not have the creativity (or desire) to design my own centerpieces, so at the logistics meeting Sharon walked us through some ideas and showed us what they already had at the venue. A couple days before the event, we provided her with some submersible lights, floating candles, and inexpensive flowers, and Sharon did the rest. It seriously looked magical and I was SO grateful that we had someone like Sharon to take care of the details. Last but definitely not least, the food at the Carlyle Club is outstanding. We got to do a tasting about six months beforehand and had such a hard time narrowing down our menu because it was all SO good! The bartenders were also fantastic...our signature cocktail was delicious! My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our choice of wedding venue...the owners, the staff, the food, and the space itself are all fantastic. Our guests absolutely loved it too! We highly recommend the Carlyle Club.

Sharon and Brennan are fantastic to work with. My finance and I are holding our wedding at the Carlyle Club, and the two of them as a team have been nothing short of fantastic! They are extremely personable and have made the experience very smooth. They offer suggestions whenever asked and always give great advice. Sharon is the busiest woman I've seen, yet always makes time for us and makes us feel as if we are her number one priority. We can't wait to have our wedding there in a month. There are many venues to choose from, but their personalities are what brought us in, and we are glad we did!

Our wedding at the Carlyle Club was on 4/1/17. It was literally the best day ever! The venue is beautiful! We received so many compliments on it! Sharon used some of our own decorations and filled in where needed with a ton of hers. It looked amazing! When we first met Sharon and Brennan, we loved them instantly! We chose the Carlyle Club because of them. Their personalities are awesome! It was like we were working with great friends. They are fun to be around and fun to work with. They are always incredibly hospitable and inviting, and make everyone feel welcome. We met with them several times before our wedding to go over the timeline and order of events, select our food selections, and go over every small detail you can think of. They even have a list of recommended vendors. We went with every single one of their recommendations and had the most amazing and perfect combined group of vendors you could ever put together! Sharon did so much for us the day of the wedding. She acted as our day-of coordinator and did the best job at it. We had a 22 person bridal party and she handled us all with ease and made it seem effortless! Even though there were 11 women to help my bride throughout the day, Sharon was the best and did more than all of the bridesmaids combined! Everything went so smoothly! Without her and her team, our wedding would not have been what it was, which was perfect! We wouldn’t change a thing! Sharon seemed to know what we needed even before we needed it! We are singing her praises (and Brennan and their team’s too!) and the Carlyle Club comes with our full recommendation going forward! The Carlyle Club looks amazing, has the best owners and wonderful staff! The food was so good and all of our guests are still complimenting it, along with the venue. Sharon thought of things we never would have and made everything go together perfectly! We can’t wait to dine at the Carlyle Club and go see some of their shows/events in the future!

We chose the Carlyle Club as the venue for our wedding and reception on 2/17/17. From the moment we met with Sharon and Brennan to tour the club, we knew it was the perfect venue! It is charming, intimate, unique and classy. Working with Sharon was a dream come true. She acts as the day of coordinator and makes sure that your vision comes to life! When I was brought out to see the space on the day of my wedding- it took my breath away! Sharon pays attention to the smallest of details and everything was better than I hoped. Stunning! The staff at the Carlyle Club work hard to make every guest feel like they are VIP and they are always smiling and kind. The food was delicious! We have received so many compliment on The Carlyle Club- everyone has said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever been to- and that is in large part to Sharon and Brennan! We highly recommend the Carlyle Club for your wedding and event! Absolutely perfect!!!!
