Washington, D.C. – The Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment (OCTFME) is thrilled to announce The Carlyle Room as the D.C. Location of the Month (LOTM) for January 2024. Situated in the heart of downtown D.C., The Carlyle Room is a stunning new addition to the city's entertainment and event venues. This 12,000-square-foot facility, located on I Street NW, just across from Franklin Square Park and near the McPherson Square Metro, offers an unparalleled experience with its art deco-inspired elegance and a vibrant atmosphere.

OCTFME Director LaToya Foster commented, “The Carlyle Room is not just a location; it's a destination. Its exquisite design, coupled with a prime downtown location, makes it an ideal spot for both Washingtonians and visitors to enjoy top-tier entertainment and dining.”

The Carlyle Room's interior is a marvel, featuring a neon art deco sign, lobby murals with overlapping circles, and a main room that accommodates 160 guests. It's highlighted by faux-chandelier lighting, stone-tile walls, and a stage illuminated in soft blue light, creating a sophisticated supper club ambiance.

The venue's prime location is complemented by convenient amenities like ample, affordable parking and direct elevator access from the 1350 I St NW Garage. Its attached bar, Brennan's, offers an additional space for guests to gather and enjoy.

Kris Ross, Executive Vice President of Operations at The Carlyle Room, shared, “We're proud to be recognized by OCTFME. The Carlyle Room is where fine dining, impeccable ambiance, and live music converge to craft unforgettable evenings. Our grand reopening featured the Grammy award-winning  group Take 6, and we're excited for future performances by jazz greats like Taylor Eigsti, Christian Sands, Lizz Wright, and Dee Dee Bridgewater.”

The Carlyle Room promises an exquisite experience with its menu featuring dishes like filet mignon, Chilean Sea Bass, and Shrimp & Grits. Guests can indulge in classic beverages while enjoying an entertainment lineup that's second to none.

As OCTFME’s January 2024 D.C. Location of the Month, The Carlyle Room stands as a testament to the vibrant cultural and entertainment scene in downtown Washington D.C.
