Get swept up in the character and charm of Prequel’s quirky home in the historic National Fire Union building, located in the heart of Penn Quarter. The venue features the “casino floor” of the largest illegal gambling ring ever busted by the D.C. police, one of the original and oldest functioning open-cage passenger elevators in the country, and it is flanked by the alley John Boothe ran down after assassinating President Abraham Lincoln.

Set over five floors, including an intimate cocktail bar, a light and airy wine bar, and four large open rooms with plenty of exposed brick and unique atmospheric characteristics, we can combine any number of rooms to scale with you and your event. Positioned perfectly between the Hill and the Financial District, we are two blocks away from both Metro Center and Chinatown, connecting us directly to every metro line in the wider D.C. area. A stone’s throw from the White House and National Mall, your guests will have no trouble getting to and from our venue.

"Their beverage program is second to none. The awesome sommelier helped me pick the perfect wines for my company event." – J. Poulakidas
