The calendar for spring and summer is adorned with fun and worthy events like receptions, corporate parties, graduations, charitable fundraisers, weddings, family reunions, cocktail parties and more. For the host, one critical question is always where to hold the gathering. Additionally, they want the event to look stunning and memorable while serving good food, but without breaking the bank.

Indigo Landing Restaurant at the Washington Sailing Marina on the Potomac River is just the sort of place that fits that tall order. Gorgeous, expansive views of the Potomac or the marina are available from just about every window on the site. Moreover, its outdoor deck, which faces the water, is the largest of any in the D.C. area.

Guests can enjoy the deck while watching the sailboats slip out of the marina or planes landing at National Airport as they sip a favorite cocktail or wine. The expansive lawns are perfect for a stroll by the water.

Other options at the stunning yet versatile setting include the Charleston Room, a 120-seat private dining room with a separate garden entrance, the Sun Porch, which seats up to 60 but can be expanded by tenting the deck, and the Chart Room with its own fireplace for more intimate cocktail parties of 15 to 25 guests. For bigger parties or galas of up to 120 people, the main dining room, the Sun Porch Room and the Veranda Deck with a tent are perfect.

Sharon Salisbury, the restaurant’s private dining and event manager, is passionate about her job, the flexible menus, her catering team and the venue. In addition to helping people plan their special occasion while working within a budget, Salisbury enjoys making entertaining easy for her clients.

“The expansive water view from Indigo Landing makes this unique setting perfect for a corporate lunch, reception, wedding, rehearsal dinner, small conference or cocktail party,” she said. “With its large outdoor deck and experienced staff, Indigo Landing warmly welcomes guests and makes entertaining easy.”

Before booking a venue for your next special occasion, pay a visit to the picturesque Indigo Landing, enjoy a delicious lunch, dinner or snack, and discover first hand why this lovely, romantic restaurant in a stunning location is rapidly becoming the go-to place for happenings.
