The space can accommodate small events to large events, cocktail hours and full ceremonies. The listed hourly rate is for the entire space. Our gallery is a dynamic contemporary art space and unique courtyard venue that provides an off-the-beaten-path DC experience. The venue is perfect for events, arts and creativity, parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, networking, fashion shows, and more. At about 3000 square feet of art gallery and adjacent courtyard, visitors get the sense of stepping out of the city for a moment. The venue’s New Orleans inspired outdoor space, organic beauty, and original brickwork create the perfect setting for your event. Collecting art for 35 years led the Gallery owners, Steve and Dolly, to bring their dream and passion for art to life here in DC. What started as free shows, curated by Dolly without a price tag in site, has grown into a practiced philosophy of cultivating local art, artists, and events open to everyone with a passion for art.

Josh J. booked a wedding party for 125 people
We had a wonderful experience in working with O Gallery on H to make our wedding a total success! Dolly and Sarah were calm and stellar to work with -- really made us feel like we could achieve the wedding we were planning for ourselves by ourselves. Highly recommend working with them. The space is beautiful inside and out!
Stephanie A. booked an event for 75 people
Our Gallery O on H wedding was absolutely unforgettable. The venue itself is stunning, under the careful watch of Kyle who maintains literally every aspect of the place with pride, joy, and a careful eye to detail. And I don't know how they do it but he and Dolly make the place feel like another home, a community in a way that is completely missing in other venues. The place itself is an urban nature oasis, with Kyle growing flowers and shrubbery along the background of the wedding Arch. And the townhome is a freaking artistic masterpiece waiting to be used. We had 75 guests and over 7 different vendors come to the space - the caterers loved the kitchen, the florist died for the space, and we literally got gushing reviews from our photographer. If you're worried about parking don't - Kyle hooked us up with a valet parking service that took care of everything. And he's an amazing communicator - I think we did three walkthroughs and he was always available and never complained. I can't say enough about the space. The gorgeous venue itself and the people who manage it are just amazing. We are so grateful we were able to get married here. And - now we'll be able to come back for events! If you're thinking about it do it. This place is worth every freaking penny.

In addition to creating a fantastic event space at the gallery, Kyle helped us put together the the exact type of wedding party we were looking for! He knows how to put an event together- and is great to work with. Book this space for your DC event- you will love it!

This is an amazing and unique space that couldn't have been more perfect for my wedding! Kyle is absolutely wonderful. Super understanding, accommodating and laid back. He works hard and always has a smile on his face. A really wonderful person!
Kirby H. booked an event for 120 people
We booked Gallery O on H for our wedding and it could not have been a more perfect location! The space is a beautiful combination of industrial with brick walls and iron accents, mixed with beautiful greenery and plants. Kyle, the Gallery Manager, is infectiously enthusiastic and was a great help along the way. He took real care for our event, was with us all along the way, facilitating vendor walk-throughs, and staying with us for the whole wedding (he was very calming when we really needed it!). They recently renovated the adjacent building, giving you lots of options for floorplans, both indoor and outdoor. A bit of a hidden gem on a busy corridor, our guests were amazed by this venue.
Sara P. booked an event for 75 people
We could not imagine a more perfect venue for our wedding reception. Gallery O on H was exactly the aesthetic that my husband and I were looking for and their new Otoo space, just takes it to the next level! You can tell how much thought and love has gone into curating this space. Kyle is extremely passionate about the space and delivering incredible events. I had a bit of an unconventional layout in mind and he and his team executed it perfectly. Such a pleasure to work with! Would love to hold events here again.
