The spacious ballroom allows for full seating all in one room. Lots of windows create a bright daytime space, and the new chandeliers can be dimmed during evening events. The ballroom can be set in a variety of configurations. The mansion beige padded chairs are included with the rental. If a client chooses to rent different chairs, the house chairs will be stored.

During warm months, guests can enjoy the new outdoor patio overlooking the spacious lawn. This can be an ideal spot for a satellite bar and overflow seating. It can also provide a spot for a cigar area. This can be tented for an additional fee to insure use of the space.

A backdrop of trees make a scenic spot for outdoor ceremonies, should couples choose to have the entire event at our venue. The private grounds offer various spots for photos after the ceremony with mature trees as a backdrop.

“We loved having my sister’s “mehndi” party at Rock Creek Mansion. It was a great way to kick off the wedding… you gave us the ability to plan our event exactly as we wanted, from layout, to catering options, to provisions for a sound system. It was very easy to plan the details with you– you were always available and accommodating. The gentleman who supervised our function that evening was also extremely kind and helpful. And the space was beautiful… clean and elegant. Our guests raved about the event, and many people asked how we found you. So thank you very much!

All the Best, RAMEEZ

“We used the Rock Creek Mansion as the site for our son’s bar mitzvah. The
 location and the staff were perfect – amazing to work with. We held an
event that was both indoors and outdoors and the space was ideal. It 
helped that the weather held up for us – a glorious day, but it is
 important to note that Julie and the Rock Creek Mansion crew had a rain
plan in mind in case we were unlucky on the weather front. The kitchen was
well laid out for our caterers. All in all, a seemingly effortless event
for us. Coordination was terrific. And we know it wasn’t effortless for
Julie and her team – they just made it look that way!  Bravo! We can’t 
wait to hold future events there!”

Bar and Bat Mitzvah receptions

The Rock Creek Mansion is a unique, private venue for Bar and Bat Mitzvah receptions. The circular driveway provides a convenient spot for guest drop off and pick up. Parents can then head into Bethesda for a meal or movie while their children party! Rental clients can greet guests in the foyer, with the adults moving into the lounge for the cocktail hour, and the children going into the ballroom for dancing and games.

The L Shaped ballroom allows for adults to be seated in one section, the children on the other side and the dancing in the center without an actual divider. This way the older adults can be partly separated from the music. The spacious ballroom allows for a variety of creative seating arrangements, especially for the children. Festive decorations can be hung from the ceiling to enhance the theme. The side entrance allows for easy load in of musical equipment, casino tables, a photo booth and/or couches.

The outdoor patio can provide an additional cocktail space or can be used for a smoothie station. It can be tented for an additional fee. This area can provide a green screen area.

For daytime events, the lawn provides space for field day games and/or a moon bounce.

Whether the theme is a night club, casino event, Hollywood movie night, beach party, sports event, camping or field day parties, The Rock Creek Mansion is an ideal location with an easy flow.
