How many people?  Places that spring to mind are the Harman Center for the Arts and the Newseum.

I’ve been to a party at the Arlington Arts Center.  It’s a fairly inexpensive venue that has a nice outside and inside dance area.

The Women’s Museum (www.nmwa.org) is gorgeous – I almost booked it for my wedding, but it’s not really simple – the hall has a marble floor and grand staircases and a chandelier. It’s expensive, but mostly tax-deductible. It’s a more manageable size than the Building Museum.

WVSA Arts Connection between Faragut North and Farragut West is a functioning art gallery and non-profit organization for youth with disabilities. They have a great space:


The Arts Club of Washington isn’t exactly “modern” but it is a great space:


For a truly modern/architectural location, the Equality Center at the HRC (Human Rights Campaign) in Dupont would be perfect:

We’re getting married at the Carnegie Institution for Science on 16th and P, NW.  We couldn’t believe how great the price was, and you can also rent the Portico and steps for an additional fee.  Michelle Fisher has been GREAT to work with, and the space is unbelievable.  They have a 360 degree view, and the ballroom is better looking in person than in the pictures.
