Private Events


Mess Hall offers a unique venue for those looking to create killer events that guests won’t soon forget. We are the only private event space in DC that looks into a beautiful open industrial kitchen with camera-ready equipment and high-tech amenities…all in a mid-century industrial setting.

Our 2,000 square feet of renovated warehouse space boasts 18-foot ceilings and a multi-room configuration where you can bring your specific vision to life. Mess Hall has hosted corporate clients including DC Brau, The Smithsonian Institution, The Embassy of Japan, Cabot Cheese, Redfin, and countless others.

Mess Hall’s event space is available for any and all occasions and limited only by your imagination. For a little inspiration, check out this feature of one of our weddings in Washingtonian Bride & Groom! Additionally, we have a diverse list of food and beverage purveyors in-house to simplify your planning and enhance your guests’ experience; needless to say, our whole team is ready to help you host.



“Mess Hall really spoke to us as a venue. It was such a versatile and unique space. We had the luxury of choosing from countless food options (which were all produced by different vendors at Mess Hall). We had access to the house sound system and all the venue’s amenities. Another big plus for us was the venue’s proximity to the Metro. I would absolutely recommend Mess Hall for anyone who wants to host a memorable and unique event.”

–Brandon Skall, CEO & Co-Founder, DC Brau

“If you are looking for a non-traditional venue for your wedding mess hall is perfect. We loved being able to highlight the food from the amazingly delicious members and the space was flexible enough to create a great evening for eating, drinking and dancing with family and friends.”

“Reserve Mess Hall for your event now! Al and team took care of us and provided a very cool setting for my daughter’s bat mitzvah celebration. The space is great by itself and also excellent for staging. We had food trucks pull up out front and parking was easy. Whatever you do, don’t overlook the loading dock!”
