Mess Hall
Capacity: 6 – 250
703 Edgewood Street, NE
Washington, DC 20017

Al Goldberg
Mess Hall is a mid-century brick warehouse that has been converted into four commercial kitchens and shared by DC’s hottest emerging food entrepreneurs. We are also home to DC’s most unique and buzzworthy venue. Our newly renovated event space boasts 18’ ceilings and a fully functional demonstration kitchen, designed to create interactive experiences and unforgettable events.
Mess Hall is the only venue in the city where an open kitchen engages partygoers for a fully interactive culinary experience.

Our partially enclosed Garage Bay features exposed brick and glows with twinkle lights. It offers an open-air feeling any time of year and boasts an optional stage for live entertainment.

Three event spaces can be combined into one dynamic venue to complement your vision, or you can partition one area for a more intimate gathering.
