1735 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20006

Just steps from the White House, AIA’s prime downtown location is the perfect place to host your next event.

With distinctive architecture, two-story glass windows, a grand staircase, and a private courtyard oasis, AIA’s urban location is perfect for your city wedding. We can host your full ceremony and reception experiences for up to 350 people, and we’ll transition the space effortlessly from ceremony to cocktails, reception, and dancing.


From Metro:  Take the Farragut West Station's 18th & I (Eye) Street exit on the Orange/Blue/Silver Line. Upon exiting, make a right on 18th Street walking toward Compass Coffee. You will pass Corner Bakery and the World Bank on your right. Continue walking straight down 18th until you hit New York Avenue NW. Make a left on New York Avenue NW and the AIA will be behind the historic Octagon House on your left.

From the Farragut West 17th Street Exit or the Farragut North Station stop on the Red Line, head south on 17th Street toward the White House for half a mile and you will turn right on New York Avenue NW. AIA is the last building on the right.

Directions from other points and destinations may be found here.

Parking: Street Parking is available, but the location is near Constitution Hall, so please plan accordingly. Street Parking is free in DC on Sundays!  :D
