Hold your next event at Washington D.C.’s oldest continuously running restaurant. The property, built in 1875 by retired Navy Admiral William Radford, offers a unique combination of indoor and outdoor spaces. From intimate gatherings and sumptuous dinner parties to festive cocktails and full scale fêtes, Iron Gate has everything you need to make your next event an unforgettable experience.

Our warm and intimate Indoor Dining Room gives your guests a front seat to our kitchen where our chef will delight you with a multi-course family style tasting menu. Wow your guests in the spring, summer and fall, under the stunning wisteria and grape vines on our Garden Patio, complete with retractable awning. Tucked away next to the Garden Patio, our Side Patio is the perfect space for intimate dinners, brunches and cocktail parties.

Our experienced Private Dining team will help you craft a menu, select wine and beverage pairings from our award winning wine list, and plan the perfect event. We cannot wait to help you celebrate your next occasion at Iron Gate!
