A Dramatic and Memorable Site!

The building is an important example of Greek Revival architecture and home to the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association

The Athenaeum is a dramatic and memorable site for wedding ceremonies, receptions, parties and seminars. This historic building is a beautiful setting for any event. You and your guests can enjoy a special art exhibit amidst one of the few remaining examples of neo-classical Greek Revival architecture in Alexandria. Whether for business or pleasure, hosting your event at this historic landmark will create the memories of a lifetime.

The exterior features four soaring Doric columns across the portico and walls of stucco over stone and brick. The elegant rooms have 24-foot high coved ceilings, enormous windows and beautiful woodwork. There are two galleries on the main floor. Located on the lower level, with original exposed granite walls, is a large room that your caterer may use as a food preparation area, plus two restrooms.

Reviews

Alberto is the best catering manager ever!! Everything about working with Catering by Season, from the planning, communication, to the execution was phenomenal!

Catering By Seasons exceeded my expectation. I used them for a brunch at my house after my son’s bar mitzvah. The level of professionalism along with their responsiveness made me feel at ease right away.

Catering by Seasons is great! We booked them for our wedding. Stephanie was so great with working with us on our desired budget.
