“If architecture is frozen music, surely The Belmont Mansion is one of the greatest symphonies ever composed.”
The Belmont Mansion is a historic mansion, and now an event venue space, in the heart of Washington, D.C.’s Embassy Row.
Constructed in 1906 by Congressman and Ambassador Perry Belmont and Jessie Belmont, two prominent D.C. socialites, this building was designed and built for almost the sole purpose of entertaining. The Belmonts used this mansion as their temporary residence during Washington’s political and social seasons and hosted many magnificent gatherings for the Washington elite and international dignitaries.
The exterior was designed to be evocative of 15th and 16th century French château architecture, with its interior also carrying a historic French style with small elements of grand, Washington architecture.
The Mansion has four spaces available for events, including:
- Ballroom: 150 guests for a reception and 120 for a seated banquet
- Grand Salon: 140 guests for a reception and 80 for a seated banquet
- State Dining Room: 120 guests for a reception and 22 for a seated banquet
- Petit Salon: 65 guests for a reception and 45 for a seated banquet
The Mansion offers a 10% discount for non-profit events and 20% discount for daytime events.
