The Lyceum

Have your catered here.

Greek Revival Style

The entire second floor of The Lyceum is a large hall (28' x 58') decorated in the Greek Revival style of the 1840's---dusty rose colored draperies and valences, tall, narrow mullioned windows, high ceiling, a Greek frieze going around the top of the walls,

The Alexandria Lyceum was founded in 1838 by a group with an interest in improving public educational and cultural opportunities throughout the community. In 1839, the group joined with the Alexandria Library to construct a new home for both organizations, the building known today simply as The Lyceum. This historic site has also served as a Civil War hospital ward, a private residence, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Nation’s first Bicentennial Visitor’s Center. Today, as the city’s history museum, the site offers exhibitions, public programs, a museum store, and facility rentals.

Everything about working with Catering by Season, from the planning, communication, to the execution was phenomenal!

I can’t say enough great things about our entire experience planning our daughter's Bat Mitzvah with Glynis Keith, Catering Manager, with Catering by Seasons.

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.
