Sonoma is one of the Washington DC's premier private event locations and offers private event space for parties ranging from 5 to 200 guests for personal celebrations, fundraisers, corporate receptions, and more. We offer private parties in three spaces: our first floor Main Dining Room, second floor Avenue Lounge, and second floor Private Dining Room. We are currently offering time slots for lunch, dinner, and reception events from Monday-Saturday from 11am-10pm. We are not opening for breakfast events at this time.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma is dedicated to the health and safety of our guests and staff above all else. We have permanently improved our health safety measures for both staff and guests, including frequent sanitization of all private space furniture, equipment, and dining ware. We have also temporarily lowered our private room capacities and minimum revenue fees to focus on hosting smaller and safer private events. As COVID cases decrease and vaccination rates increase, we may return to previous capacities and minimums - stay tuned for more updates!
Please contact our private events coordinator, Hilary Smith, directly at email@example.com for availability.

The upstairs Private Dining Room is our most intimate and secluded private event space, located in the back of our second floor. The room has capacity for 30 guests at a seated event, and up to 40 standing, with a ceiling height of 12 feet, highlighted by skylights that bring in plentiful natural light during the day. Ambient noise level is low to moderate, as the Private Dining Room also contains its own bar and music controls. It is our recommended space for intimate events, celebratory seated dinners, business lunches, presentations and private meetings, and the perfect room for controlled-access fundraisers and media events.
The upstairs Avenue Lounge features an open floor plan, furnished with contemporary sofas and club chairs, and is perfect for larger private receptions, fundraisers, cocktail parties, and can even host lunch and dinner event as well. It is an airy, elegant space with a raised stage and two-story fireplace, and has capacity for 32 guests at a seated event and 75 standing, with a ceiling height of 9-20 feet. Ambient noise level is low to moderate, as the Lounge is on the restaurant’s second floor, away from the main dining room, and contains its own full bar and music controls. It is our recommended space for larger cocktail receptions, fundraisers, media events, wedding ceremonies and receptions.
Our first floor main dining room is available for larger seated lunch events for up to 45 guests, or standing receptions for up to 75 guests. Sonoma also has the unique ability to combine our two second floor event spaces into a single space with capacity for a standing reception for up to 115 guests. And for very large groups, Sonoma Restaurant is available for a full first and second floor buy out which can hold up to 200 guests for a standing cocktail reception, wedding, media event, or fundraiser.
