The Lane Social Club is a new venue that opened in February 2020 in the Ivy City Neighborhood in Washington, DC. We have a large, very open space (8,000 square feet indoors and 2,000 square feet of outdoor roof deck space) with high ceilings and a modern aesthetic throughout. Our space was initially intended to be focused on young families and has features for kids (huge corkscrew slide, climbing net, climbing wall) and features for adults (cafe/bar serving adult centric food and drinks, comfortable and stylish seating throughout, WiFi, and more) - but COVID has shifted our business model temporarily. Right now, we do not have normal operating hours. On weekdays, we house learning pods and our space is available for private events on evenings and weekends. We can rent just the upstairs + roofdeck ($300/hr) or the entire building ($600/hr). We are happy to work with interested people to tailor events specifically to their needs/wants (eg adult or kid birthday parties, sit down dinners, live music events, game/trivia nights, happy hour events, corporate social events, fundraisers, etc). We follow all COVID protocols set forth by Mayor Bowser's office including temperature checks and mask wearing at all times except when eating or drinking. Additionally, while we are in Phase 2 (until at least December 31st 2020), we are limited to 50 people total in the building.

Emily M. booked a wedding reception for 35 people
After having to reschedule our wedding due to Covid I wasn’t sure where we’d be able to find an indoor/outdoor space versatile enough for the many unknowns of 2020. But after finding The Lane and Molly my fears were all put to rest. Molly and everyone we met at The Lane went above and beyond to help us and make sure the day was perfect even in these weird weird times. I cannot recommend this place enough for events! Every time we visited in the days leading up to our wedding there was something else going on there - but always with Covid safety parameters. This place will also be a gem for dc and Ivy City once they can get back to operating as they’d intended pre Covid.
