Our wedding was on May 27, 2018. We picked The Carlyle Club to host our wedding reception and planned to have the ceremony at a local park. Throughout the planning process, the Carlyle team was responsive and calmed my nerves as they handled communication with reserving the local park for the ceremony. During the week before the wedding the weather was not too favorable, Sharon and Brennan constantly encouraged us that it would be a great ceremony and reception. They had everything we needed form linens to table number holders. The food was beyond amazing. I maintain a mostly vegan diet and they made sure to tailor my meal to fit my dietary needs. We had to have our ceremony inside the Carlyle Club as it started to rain, the staff was very accommodating and very attentive to our requests. I would recommend this place to anyone and if you are looking for venues, please check out the Carlyle Club. You will not be disappointed.
The Carlyle Club responded with the following comments:
Thank you for the kind words. You and Sammie were an absolute pleasure to work with, and we wish you all the best in your married life! You are now part of our Carlyle Club family, so please don't be strangers. Let us know when you have time to come back for dinner and a show. Thanks again - Sharon and Brennan

As a event planner I initially struggled with finding a venue that I trusted to bring my wedding day vision to life. When I met Sharon I knew I had found the perfect venue. Sharon has a wealth of experience and she made the planning process extremely easy. The day of my wedding I was a bit stressed and nervous; Sharon calmed me down and ensured me everything would be perfect.....she was right! My family and friends loved the food and atmosphere. More importantly they raved about how attentive the staff was. If you are looking for the perfect venue please consider the Carlyle Club....I promise you won’t regret it.

I attended a bridal show at the Carlyle Club and immediately fell in love with the venue. Sharon and Brennan were absolutely awesome to work with. They made our wedding the most memorable day we could have ever asked for. They exceeded every expectation that we had. We had so many compliments after the wedding about the venue, the decorations, the food, the drinks and the service. I would highly recommend the Carlyle Club!

We held our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at the Carlyle Club a few weeks ago and I can't express how happy we were with the venue! Sharon and Brennan were exceptionally accommodating and flexible and helped us create a memorable event for our family and guests. This was the first time we had planned something like this and Sharon held out hands the entire time. They respected our budget and always suggested less expensive options that we could incorporate. The day of the event, we had dropped off our items in the morning and arrived that evening to a beautifully decorated room with everything assembled by Sharon and her team. Throughout the evening, Sharon was hands on making sure everything was running smoothly and out guests had everything they needed. The food was delicious and the venue was perfect for both the adults and the 60 kids we had attending. We can't recommend them enough! The Tanners

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!
