ROOM by SWATCHROOM is a boutique event venue located in the heart of Washington, DC in the historic Shaw neighborhood, just walking distance from the Convention Center, as well as the bustling shops and restaurants of the 14th Street and U Street corridors.
ROOM lives in the former headquarters of award-winning design, art, and fabrication firm, SWATCHROOM, a company that redefines the traditional design/build paradigm and stands as a leader at the intersection of high end interior design, art curation, and custom fabrication. ROOM is an extension of its parent company, SWATCHROOM. As a venue, ROOM’s mission is to make a contribution to Washington DC’s landscape of traditional event venues as well as to its creative community by offering a unique, versatile space to potential renters and local entrepreneurs and artists.
The former design firm, turned art gallery, turned event venue is one of a kind. ROOM is a versatile venue perfect for a myriad of events including, but certainly not limited to: Cocktail Parties, Book Signings, Gallery Shows, Receptions, Corporate Retreats, Dinner Parties, Baby Showers, Birthday Celebrations, Meetings and small Conferences, Mitzvahs, Bridal Showers, Wedding Receptions, Workshops, and more.
Like its founders, ROOM is a venue ready for transformation. Sun-lit high-ceilings, modern finishes, first-class tech offerings, original and curated artwork by nationally and internationally acclaimed local artists, and an artistic yet subtle decor aesthetic make the venue a breath of fresh air. ROOM features three event spaces including a Main Gallery, a Flex/Staging Room, and an Outdoor Lounge. ROOM and its concierge-level staff can manifest any event vision, from classic to contemporary, and everything in between.
