TESTIMONIALS

5/5
Just cannot say enough great things about the location and team at HQO Events! We originally were having a wedding industry event in 2020 but had to postpone because of the pandemic. Lovesha, Fran and the team helped us plan, reschedule, and plan again to make sure all went off without a hitch. The whole team from the security to the facilities staff were top-notch and so helpful even when we had to rework some things because of the rain. The view is gorgeous (even in the rain!) and the space felt open yet had smaller areas to create different types of vignettes. The location cannot be beat with tons of restaurants, the view of the water, and a calming atmosphere to lend itself to feeling out of the city yet in it. I really cannot recommend this venue enough!

This past Halloween was my second time booking the HQO space for my company's event. The space is amazing. The guests absolutely loved it. Lovesha was great to work with in confirming all of the details and logistics that I needed. The security team and Anthony were amazing in getting my vendors in and being accessible throughout the evening! I would highly recommend any of the unique spaces at this unique venue for your next event. I can't wait to book again!

We held an outdoor rooftop reception at DC Water in September 2021. The night was BEAUTIFUL and our 200 guests enjoyed it so much as we managed the Covid public health restrictions. From start to finish, the team at BlueDrop delivered top quality service. The software they use to book a meeting; the images and 360 degree view of their space; the professionalism of their staff- all work together to execute the best possible event for their customers. I can't say enough about them and their ability to manage their beautiful spaces. They even let you book indoors if you choose the rooftop in the event of inclement weather. That helps with planning and gives certainty.
