Our largest indoor reception space, the newly renovated Assembly Room features coffered ceilings, contemporary lighting and dark floors. Three full-height doors open onto the lower west terrace and gardens, rented separately. The room also has a nonworking fireplace. A portion of the room has an optional partition for breakout groups. The adjacent North Room will be refurbished as a more informal space that may be used as a break out space during meetings, buffet setup, or as a retreat from the crowd during receptions. Enjoy access to a large serving kitchen for catering service or for limited food preparation. The Assembly Room is the perfect space for a celebration, a larger workshop or office retreat, dinner or a reception. Your event may be expanded by the use of the lower west terrace and gardens, rented separately, which you may tent.

Chynnah M. booked a party for 60 people
I absolutely love the Friends Meeting of Washington space. I am a local organizer and have attended retreats in this space in the past, but I was even more delighted at how easy it was to host a reception dinner here for my colleagues. Brian was the most helpful host. He made sure I had all the information I needed about the space to plan and decorate, and also provided us with the best recommendations for catering and bar services. This space is highly accessible, and if you're looking for people that are accommodating for COVID safety, they really have you covered and support the safety plans you have in place for your gathering. The kitchen is outfitted and functional for catering use, and most of the people they recommend have worked with them already and seem to know where everything is at so you don't need to worry about orienting them. If they aren't familiar, Brian or someone on staff will make sure you have the information you need. The space is newly renovated, spacious has an abundance of natural lighting, and there is an outdoor patio overlooking a beautiful, lush, green lawn if you'd like to tent (they have recommendations on who to use for that as well!). Overall, this space has you covered, and I highly recommend hosting an event here.
Rian M. booked a graduation party for 60 people
This space was perfect for our needs! It was better than advertised! We were able to transform the space for our graduation ceremony for our students that attend our school. Brian was super responsive from the jump and made sure that we were able to schedule a walk-through before booking. He was also very responsive when I had questions during the planning process and throughout the week of event. The staff on-site during the event were gracious and very helpful as well! I can't wait to book this space again for other events on our calendar!
Rhonda B. booked a 60th birthday party for 100 people
Lune & Astor blue mercury Pros: I had a very great time for my birthday celebration. I invited 96 people and 90 people came. The kitchen is very large and very multi purposeful. Brian was very organized and responded to all of my questions and concerns in a timely manner. Great antiquity look that accent the formal. Please note that although Brian managed the event space, Peerspace will get involved closer to the day of the event which confused me. I thought it was a scam so I notified Brian of Peerspace request and he assisted that the request was from Peerspace. Lastly, I paid for parking in advance for two vehicles, but we were blessed with front door parking. Cons- Cosmetic and Safety Cosmetic The event space can use a bit of fresh paint and shine on the floor due to multiple users. Safety Outdoor Lights - outdoor lights are needed when we were packing our cars we almost tripped several times off of the last step. One of my guest fell and the person on duty for the event placed an orange cone on the step defense the fall. However, better lighting or adding lights is certainly needed especially if you’re exiting at night. Would I have an event here again! ABSOLUTELY YES!
