About this event

Capital Gatsby New Year's Eve DC Gala

A Black Tie NYE 2021 - 2022 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 (pre-pandemic) all tickets were sold out early, so do not wait. We listened to our attendees from years past and are adding additional decor, and entertainment to bring 2022 in with grand fashion and flare.

We will be following all Washington, DC covid era mandates including masks. You must wear a mask to enter the venue, and when in line for bartending & catering services. You may remove your mask when drinking or eating as per Washington, DC mandate. We are also limiting our capacity and moving to a much larger venue due to Covid-era restrictions and best practices. HQO boasts multiple levels and we will occupy the 1st floor lobby, 2nd floor, 2nd floor board room and patio (which will have limited availability). Due to reducing our head count, we have had to increase our early bird prices but we believe this will make for a much better experience!

Put on your best Great Gatsby themed attire as we celebrate 2022 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, 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 - HQO - located in the heart of booming Navy Yard. HQO is DC Water's brand new headquarters spanning 150,000 Square Feet, multiple floors + patio, floor to ceiling undulating glass windows with panoramic views of Anacostia River, LEED certified, and can accommodate well over 700 guests. We will be transforming it into a New Year’s Eve ballroom worthy of The Great Gatsby himself. Don’t miss Washington DC’s ultimate celebration as event tickets will sell out and increase closer to the date.
