The Anthem opened its doors to reveal its wonders on October 12, 2017. This state-of-the-art (we mean it!) venue is the anchor of the The Wharf; a $2 billion, world-class, mixed-use waterfront development located on the Washington Channel. Situated along the District of Columbia’s historic and gorgeous Southwest Waterfront, The Wharf is adjacent to the National Mall with a development area that spans nearly one mile – tons of neat stuff jam-packed into a totally sweet stretch of land.

The Anthem has a flexible capacity, with the ability to seat 2,500 – 3,200 or standing room for 6,000 of your most-devoted fans/followers/attendees. The Anthem can even host a seated dinner for 1,200 or a cocktail party for 3,000. Our flexibility is only limited by your imagination.
