Capital Gatsby New Year's Eve DC Gala

A Black Tie NYE 2020 Washington DC Affair

This New Year’s Eve, join us as we bring you the Capital Gatsby Gala - Washington DC's ORIGINAL roaring twenties celebration. This event has become one of the most anticipated NYE galas in the nation’s capital. In 2018-2019 all tickets were sold out early, so do not wait. We listened to our attendees from last year and are adding additional decor, and entertainment to bring 2020 in with grand fashion and flare.

Put on your best Great Gatsby themed attire as we celebrate 2020 with the decadence of the 1920s just a full CENTURY later! Women are encouraged to wear gowns or flapper (sequin, fringe or beaded) dresses, tiaras/headbands, silk shawls, feather fans, long pearl necklaces, and gold arm bangles -- to name just a few options. Men are encouraged to dress in Gatsby theme, which can include: dinner jackets (tuxedos), striped suits, flashy neckties, homburg hats, and gold-capped walking sticks. Imagination and creativity are key here!

The Capital Gatsby Gala, is the ultimate New Year’s Eve, Washington DC Black Tie affair, featuring a 5-hour premium open bar, midnight champagne toast, midnight NYE countdown, multiple food stations (including the popular Mac n' Cheese Bar), a dessert bar, Music by DC's Top DJ Vicious, roaring 20's dancers & entertainment, photographers & videographers, 1920's inspired party favors and so much more. This all takes place at the brand new luxurious venue - The Showroom - located inside the Franklin Court Building. The Showroom is a majestic private event venue with high ceilings, open space layout, a VIP loft, and can accommodate over 800 guests.
