Tickets sell out well in advance every year, so do not wait! Put on your best Great Gatsby attire as we bring the decadence of the 1920’s just a century later at this one of a kind NYE Washington DC event. The Capital Gatsby Gala, is the ultimate New Year’s Eve, Washington DC Black Tie affair, featuring a 5 hour premium open bar, midnight champagne toast, midnight NYE countdown, multiple food stations, a dessert bar, the area’s best DJ’s (including highly sought-after DJ Vicious & The International DJ LS), Gatsby inspired dancers, performers, photographers and so much more. This all takes place at the brand new luxurious venue – HQO – located inside DC Water’s brand new headquarters in Navy Yard. Opened in late 2019, HQO is a majestic private event venue with high ceilings that include floor to ceiling windows, 150,000 of gross square feet, a VIP boardroom, and can accommodate well over 700 guests (we are limited event capacity to make sure it is spacious). We will be transforming it into a New Year’s Eve ballroom worthy of The Great Gatsby himself.

2020 and 2021 have been tumultuous years, and we are beyond ready to bring in 2022. With that being said, we will be adhering to all DC Covid related mandates and have increased measures such as venue size and capacity to ensure a safer experience for all attendees.

New Year’s Eve Event Venue


HQO Waterside Events is Washington DC’s newest and most exclusive private event venue located inside DC Water’s new headquarter building in Navy Yard. The 150,000 gross square feet venue comes alive with floor to ceiling undulating glass windows that boast panoramic views of Anacostia River, and an open, modernized, industrial space which will serve as a canvas for the Capital Gatsby Gala: A New Year’s Eve DC Black Tie Affair. The event space is fully LEED certified and is one of the city’s most environmentally friendly venues. To host Capital Gatsby Gala we have secured the massive 1st floor lobby (13,270 Square Feet), second floor (4,100 Square Feet w/ amazing views of the Anacostia River), 2nd floor boardroom (which will be exclusively for VIP ticket holders), and 1st floor outdoor patio (limited use).

The location cannot be beat in the heart of Washington DC, right across from Nationals Park and in the heart of booming Navy Yard (DC’s hottest neighborhood). The stylish venue was opened in late 2019 but due to Covid, HQO has not hosted events until very recently. However, it is quickly becoming one of the most sought after event spaces in the District. This is the perfect venue to host our Capital Gatsby Gala.

Note: HQO has increased our event space for Capital Gatsby Gala than previous years, and we have also limited the amount of tickets to allow for a less-crowded NYE experience than previous years. We cannot wait!
