7 Unique Baby Shower Venues in DC to Celebrate New Arrivals

Few things in life are more worth celebrating than a new baby. Baby showers are a great way to get excited about an impending arrival and shower moms-to-be (and dads-to-be!) with love and perhaps set them up with some of the baby must-haves they’ll need to navigate the first year of parenthood. From a quaint backyard get-together to a lavish dinner party, a baby shower can basically be anything you imagine it to be. Here are some of the best and most unique baby shower venues in DC


The Best Baby Shower Venues in DC to Make the Moment Memorable


Rose’s Luxury

717 8th St SE, Washington DC, 20003

If Mom-to-be is an enthusiastic foodie, then Rose’s Luxury is a fabulous option as a shower venue! This Michelin-starred restaurant is known for its extreme (well-deserved) popularity and delicious food. The private Barracks Room is a great option for celebrations of 13 – 20 guests. Alternatively, you can hop down a couple of blocks to Little Pearl, one of Rose’s Luxury sister restaurants with plenty of private space for events (albeit a slightly more casual ambiance.) 


Patterson Mansion

15 Dupont Circle, NW, Washington DC 20036

The Patterson Mansion is a luxurious venue for showers, dinner parties, and other elite gatherings – including a stylish baby shower! This venue has been hosting presidents and pioneers for over a century, with its iconic architecture and convenient location in Dupont Circle. Several event spaces are available for rent, with the Ballroom being the largest, accommodating up to 60 guests. 


Sun Room

327 S St NE, Washington, DC 20002

The Sun Room is a bright, cozy event space that serves as a beautiful blank canvas for any event. Clean white walls, natural wooden accents, and charming light fixtures make the Sun Room a cheerful, contemporary space that can either be kept in a neutral boho color palette or livened up with bold colors and a fun theme. Plus, you can bring in your vendors for décor, catering, and more at this baby shower venue in DC!


The Showroom

1099 14th Street, NW Washington, DC 20005

The Showroom is a modern, industrial-inspired event space with tall ceilings, many windows, and plenty of contemporary fixtures and charm. Led by a team of event specialists, The Showroom has become one of DC’s most sought-after venues, offering a unique blank space for all kinds of events. With space for up to 800 standing guests (280 seated), you may not even have to edit the guest list! 


The Whittemore House

1526 New Hampshire Ave, Washington DC 20036

There’s no better way to celebrate a strong and powerful mama-to-be than in a place full of rich history celebrating women. The Whittemore House is a gorgeous historic mansion in the heart of Dupont Circle that has hosted the Women’s National Democratic Club since 1927. It’s home to nine beautiful rooms of varying sizes, each unique in character and beautifully furnished with antiques and artwork. 


Fathom Gallery

1351 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007

Fathom Gallery is a bright, clean space with white walls and lighting perfect for a baby shower (or, you know, a gallery showcase.) This Georgetown venue is just waiting for you to bring your own unique touch to its contemporary aesthetic! There is also a beautiful courtyard at FAthom Gallery with a fountain, hanging lights, and plenty of lush greenery.
