Located steps away from Nationals Park in the vibrant Navy Yard neighborhood, Royal Sands provides a sprawling, two-level space with capacity for 900+ people, while also offering smaller rooms and spaces to welcome groups of all sizes. Our events team works with every event to create a unique experience and customized menu. We host events ranging from massive corporate buyouts to casual evenings out on the town with friends. Our platter menu offers delicious and shareable items and we always include gluten-free and vegan options as needed. Our drink packages are also customizable with options for drink tickets, open bars, hosted consumption tab or individual tabs. 

For those looking for a premium nightlife experience, you've arrived at the right destination. As the dusk draws down, we come alive. Our Pool Bar features a 30 foot high lifeguard stand where local and visiting DJs spin the best in music. Bottle service is available in several areas and our private areas transition to VIP areas where our valued regulars and friends unwind and let loose. Royal Sands offers an escape from your routine and a place where judgement doesn't exist. We own the  night -- and occasionally the day -- and you should too!

Unlike other venues, Royal Sands does not charge room rental fees. Depending on the desired space, a minimum may be required. 

Royal Sands' sister restaurants, Mission Navy Yard, Mission Dupont, The Admiral, and SALAZAR can also accommodate large groups in a variety of event spaces, including an award-winning rooftop.
