State of the Art Concert Hall in DC
From 1891 to 1962, the Navy Yard Car Barn was the last stop on the red line – the turnaround. The car barn mechanics got the city of DC where it needed to go. They cleaned cars, made routine repairs, and re-routed
streetcars all across the city. Deriving inspiration from history, the Navy Yard Car Barn was reborn into the Capital Turnaround.
Its rustic, exposed brick aesthetic, industrial high ceilings and technology offerings make it the ideal space to host customized social and corporate events. The main event space has a versatile open floor plan – a blank canvas that allows our clients to be creative and execute their vision in this beautifully designed architectural space.
The main hall of the Capital Turnaround can accommodate 330 guests for a seated dinner and 450 guests for a cocktail reception. The 982 capacity concert hall features state-of-the-art LED screens, audiovisuals, and sound production. This unique and historic venue is managed by event experts IMPACT Collective.
