About

About The National Press Club

For over 100 years, The National Press Club has hosted the most historic events in Washington, D.C., featuring U.S. presidents, kings, queens, prime ministers, Cabinet members, governors, members of Congress and influential leaders in business, entertainment, sport and society. What began in 1908 as a private social club for journalists has evolved into a world-class business and conference center that hosts more than 2,000 public and private events annually. Your guests will be surrounded by a century of media history; they’ll be gazing at the walls and pictures of who’s been here and talking about your successful event for years to come. Nestled in the heart of historic Washington, D.C., two blocks from The White House, Washington Monument and other visitor attractions with easy access via Metro Center (1 block), Reagan Airport (10 mins), Amtrak Union Station (10 mins), plenty of parking options and dozens of hotels nearby if you need overnight accommodations, The National Press Club is a national treasure that makes any D.C. event truly unique, memorable, and accessible.

Testimonials

Testimonials


“We wanted a classy location with an interesting history and the NPC exceeded our expectations on every level – the food was delicious, the ambiance was perfect and the service was simply outstanding. We truly appreciated your staff’s pleasant customer service and professionalism. It was obvious they took our event personally and would do whatever was needed to ensure a successful event. NPC is second to none in providing guests with a first class experience!”


“You and your staff’s hard work and attention to detail made our event even better than I had hoped. The ease and willingness of your staff to accommodate us at every step did not go unnoticed. I have planned events around the DC area for years from the Four Seasons to The Ritz, but your staff not only accepted and accommodated every last minute change with ease and efficiency, but with five star service and smiles – all signs of true professionalism.”

Our health care conference on Thursday went SPLENDIDLY, and we can’t thank you enough for your guidance with our decisions and the incredible competence and professionalism of your team at the Press Club. This was the best conference we have ever given, and all of your advice – from the set up to serving the plated lunch – was perfect.

Toyota uses The National Press Club’s multimedia production studios whenever we need news interviews or business videos. They are centrally located, making it fast and convenient. With a staff that is second to none, they consistently meet our deadline, are mindful of our budget and produce results that exceed our expectations.”

“Your staff was a class act. It was the first time I’ve run an event where I actually got to enjoy myself! I’m usually always running around, doing last minute items, etc. but thanks to your great team everything went off without a hitch."

The Press Club is so much more unique than a hotel or conference center. You could spend hours looking at the historic headlines, pictures and artifacts that have been collected over the past 108 years. It really makes the place come alive. Add to that their great service, ability to provide everything you need in-house and the great location, and it’s really the best place to have an event in the DC area.
