Carolyn Barnes Gardner Carriage House

What was once a “Horse Carriage House”, the Carolyn Gardner Carriage House provides a unique space perfect for meetings, receptions, or small gatherings.  The first-floor carriage doors can be opened to the outside onto the Center Plaza to create the perfect ambiance for your event. The second floor, overlooking the Plaza, has two small conference rooms that can also be utilized for small meetings.

Located just two blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro Station, the Carriage House is within easy walking distance of the area’s many restaurants and hotels, and with three rooms to choose from, it is the ideal setting for small to mid-size meetings, workshops, or conferences.
