Places for a work group

“I’m helping organize a work retreat and am looking for a place around the city to sit with a small group (fewer than 10 people) and talk for a few hours. Obviously, we have a conference room we can use if nothing else fits, but I think a change of scenery would be nice. I have been thinking along the lines of a quiet corner of one of the museums, but I’m not sure anything like that actually exists.

Does anyone have any ideas of a spot that is quiet-ish (but still allows for conversation), free of charge, and maybe has a nice view or interesting architecture?”

    Check out the Luce Center inside the American Art Museum. Free wifi &tables. It’s set up for visitors to research & study on site.

    Several of the DC Public Libraries have nice rooms you can reserve. Many are interesting architecturally although the meetings rooms themselves can be bland. The Mt. P, Takoma, and SE libraries were all original Carnegie libraries.

    top floor of the American Indian museum has some nice curved couch areas that could work well.

    If you need a slightly more formal space, I know you can rent the space at the True Reformer Building for I think just the cost of cleaning if you guys are a 501c3.

    The National Postal Museum – a space off the main floor, wifi and seating. And quiet.
