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.
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.
