When off-site venues work best for your needs, Archer suggests the following spaces to host your private event.
Capital One Hall
Just steps from the McLean Silver Line Metro Station and a seven-minute walk from Archer Hotel, Capital One Hall has several venues that accommodate 20 - 1,600 guests. The clean-lined Board Room on the top floor and Dual Classrooms on the first floor are ideal for conducting business and smaller-scale entertaining. Larger venues include The Terrace with a large modern sculpture, The Vault with seating for 225 and The Atrium — think weddings, receptions, cocktail parties — as well as the alfresco Perch Amphitheater with a hi-fi sound system and large outdoor digital screen. The Main Theater has 1,600 seats for concerts, performances and theatre productions.Visit Website
Meadowlark Botanical Gardens
Five miles from the hotel is the 95-acre Meadowlark Botanical Gardens with The Atrium — a private events venue with an indoor tropical garden. Overlooking the botanical gardens, this venue has exposed brick walls, a glass-enclosed cathedral ceiling, a large terrace and space for 230 seated or 300 standing guests. Three Meadowlark Wedding Gazebos with 360˚ garden views are private locales for intimate wedding ceremonies in a natural setting. The Lilac Pavilion is set in an open field and casually accommodates up to 80 seated guests under the pavilion. The Korean Bell Garden is a beautiful backdrop for weddings and private events alike; its hand-built pagoda houses the Bell of Peace and Harmony. This garden is a serene setting for up to 150 standing guests in and around the pavilion.Visit Website
