Fly Me to the Moon...

If you are a business executive, director of events, a non-profit leader, or anyone else who may at some point need a venue to host a private party, you should definitely check out Fly Lounge DC. (1802 Jefferson Place, NW in the side street connecting Connecticut and 19th Street)

Tuesday evening Victoria and I put together a nice little private event for close to 70 hand-picked business leaders and media to “showcase” this cool space for just that purpose. (Thank you to all who attended. We appreciate your support!)

The neat thing about this unique place (if you haven’t yet been, or if you have been on a typical weekend late night and it was so crowded you couldn’t see 3 feet in front of you much less the “airplane windows” on the wall) is that it is designed to replicate the inside of a plane. The airplane windows are actually computer flat screens that can be used for corporate PowerPoint presentations, logo displays, videos, or whatever your heart desires. They stretch along both sides of the walls, again, to simulate the feeling of being inside a plane.

While the maximum capacity is 150 (and trust me, in the heat of a Friday or Saturday night at midnight, it feels like it is way over that number) private events can be smaller and more intimate and the flow of the room (there is only one room) is quite nice. Lots of comfortable seating, available catering, 2 bars, a sleek interior, lots of mirrors, excellent A/V capabilities with a mic and speakers for a presentation or for comments during the cocktails and a fabulous selection of groovy background music make Fly Lounge DC a fun and cool place to host your next corporate private event. Oh, you can also book valet parking, which is very convenient since the parking around that area (Golden Triangle) can sometimes be tough during cocktail hour times.

Suggested times to book: Sunday or Monday evenings – (Fly Lounge is closed and is available only for private parties)
Suggested hours for regular business evening: 6:30 – 9:30 pm Tuesday – Saturday

Fly opens to the public at 10 pm so if your guests want to stay and enjoy the more "clubby" atmosphere and mingle with those who venture in, they are welcome to.
This is a fantastic way to impress your clients, business partners, prospects, your internal employees or the corporate big wigs who come into town.

There are several packages with open bar and catered food, we are happy to work with your requirements. For more information please contact Victoria Michael – – Come Fly Private with us!
