We feature some of the most beautiful and unique interior decor in the city, showcase culinary creativity and are committed to a memorable and fun experience for your guests.


What better way to celebrate your nuptials and wedding reception in Washington, DC than at a gorgeous, unique private venue celebrating the independent spirit of Teddy Roosevelt?


Your guests will be thrilled by our incredible space, designed by hometown artist Maggie O’Neill.


They will never lack for conversation pieces at Teddy & The Bully Bar, including the Mount Rushmore Wall, the Monocle Chandelier, the Presidential Booth, the Big Stick forest, the Badge Chandelier, our custom rifle light fixtures and the secret messages in our ladies’ room.


The backdrop for your wedding reception will be truly unique and make for some of the best wedding pictures you have ever seen, and we are one of the only venues in Dupont Circle that offers seating for up to 200 guests (for full restaurant buyout).


Trust one of the most important days of your life to our experienced Private Events team, from logistics to the tiniest detail.


Our creative dishes are sourced from local and regional farms, and in the spirit of our namesake, respect sustainability and remain environmentally conscious. Your guests will not only be impressed with our beautiful decor, but with one of the most delightful menus they’ve ever enjoyed at a wedding reception.


The Bully Bar features hand crafted classic and modern cocktails, created from fresh ingredients daily and available for your event. Choose a signature cocktail for your private party crafted from local ingredients and inspired by the life of our 26th President. Read more on The Bully Bar page.

We are experts at hosting all types of events, from weddings to A-list corporate parties to celebrity-studded fundraisers. We can create a small, intimate feeling for smaller wedding receptions, and our entire restaurant is available for large affairs – we are one of the few DC wedding venues that can accommodate up to 200 guests.


With flexibility and seating from 10 to 200 (for restaurant buyout), Teddy & the Bully Bar offers both intimacy and expanse. When the weather is good, your guests will love spending time on our swanky and spacious outdoor patio.


Choose from our fresh, seasonal menus, or plan an event with passed h’ors deouvres and/or buffet stations (note: we require pre-set menus for parties of 17 guests or more).

Private Events Director Jeanhee Kim is ready to assist you and can make your wish for a unique, timeless, distinctive and fun wedding reception come true. For more information on menus, pricing and availability please contact her using the form below or at
