The Anthem - Washington, DC

In a city renowned for its rich cultural legacy, The Anthem in Washington, D.C. is a welcome addition to an already vibrant entertainment scene. Nestled on the banks of the Potomac River, the venue is part of District Wharf, a mile-long stretch that exudes a hip personality. This vibe is enhanced by the national touring acts that fill the venue on a nightly basis with fans of rock, country, comedy and more.

Built in 2017 as part of the redevelopment of the southwestern Waterfront area, the 57,000-square-foot venue boasts a movable stage and backdrop that can accommodate a capacity ranging from 2,500 to 6,000. This ensures an intimate experience for guests, regardless of the act or the size of the crowd.

The Anthem has established itself as a major player with a robust schedule of acts ranging from legendary songwriter Bob Dylan to arena rockers Foo Fighters to soul maven Erykah Badu.

Attending a show at The Anthem is the perfect opportunity to explore the newly revitalized District Wharf. It’s easily accessible by most modes of transportation, from car to metro to boat, and parking is readily available. There are several world-class hotels within walking distance of the venue that offer breathtaking views and top-notch service. Restaurants are plentiful and offer a variety of unique dining options, from seafood to international cuisine, and pre- and post-show cocktails can be enjoyed on the waterfront. Visitors looking to view the nation’s capital from a different perspective can enjoy a dinner cruise on the Potomac or rent a kayak for summertime sightseeing.
