Venue Spotlight: The Spy Museum

That's right folks, here in DC we have an awesome place called the International Spy Museum. All about deception, double-cross and espionage, this museum is one of the coolest tourist attractions around. Okay, it's a great local attraction too...Hubs and I discovered it last February and can't wait to go back.

Did you know you can host a private event at the Spy Museum? They've teamed up with Zola, their next door restaurant neighbor, to bring you an event venue that's to die for (har har...get it?)The space is not extremely large but is surprisingly functional. The room is split by a small set of stairs...the lower floor is perfect for cocktail hour and then for dancing. The upper floor is ideal for dinner tables and can seat about 100-120 guests. There's also a built-in projector and screen for those popular slideshows! The best part is that catering is in-house (by Zola! yum!) and they also provide tables, chairs, and linens.Zola itself has a great private room that's smaller but would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner. This rooms seats about 40 guests and is completely private from the restaurant:In keeping with tradition, I must post the link to the Scott Hamilton Skates the Universe video. I posted about this last February when writing about the Spy Museum and believe that every true Washingtonian should take a break out of their busy lives and try to discover this little gem at the National Air & Space Museum.

  • The spy museum opened a year before I moved from Maryland. I'm glad I had a chance to go - it's a lot of fun. Awesome venue idea!
