A breathtaking night of beauty, fashion, glamour and style…The New Year’s Eve Gala at The Mellon Auditorium.
The countdown has officially begun for the most sought-after New Year’s Eve tickets in the capital. The District of Columbia’s best and brightest gather at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium on Constitution Avenue (i.e. the National Mall) to enjoy a night of philanthropy and elegant entertainment.
The New Year’s Eve Gala at The Mellon Auditorium – DC’s premier Black Tie gala – features DC’s most luxurious venue, top-shelf open bar, free-flowing champagne, three magnificent ballrooms, 5 separate party spaces, multiples djs & genres of music, passed desserts and hor d’ouerves, and more bars, stations and servers than before to ensure an unforgettable night of celebration.
The Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium faces Constitution Avenue and is entered through three doorways in deeply channeled limestone above Deere Island pink granite. Granite stairs rise to the main doors where six colossal fluted Roman Doric columns rise 62 feet to create the auditorium’s portico. The columns are matched by fluted Doric pilasters set against the smooth limestone back wall. The grandeur of the Mellon’s exterior is matched only by its opulent interior. Limestone-finished walls and piers define the space and frame views of the east and west staircases, lobby, and breathtaking auditorium. The lobby’s marble floor is laid in rectilinear patterns of gold, pink, and dark red marble. At the heart of the Mellon is a spectacular auditorium standing more than 60 feet high, embellished with limestone pilasters, gilded relief carvings, and polished oak.
