Happy to help launch Prequel DC!  Thanks for including us!

Washingtonian Magazine was there to celebrate the relaunch of the former Living Social 18,000 square feet private event space, now known as Prequel DC.

The Prequel Launch Party, presented by RJ Whyte Event Production, spread out over four floors, and showcased the talents of several Washington-area top event professionals. Guests enjoyed plucking pretzels and dip from a tree sculpture provided by RSVP Catering, imbibed in a scotch tasting poured by Occasions Caterers, listened to the stylized sounds of Pelonkey, and were inspired by activations created by a few of DC’s top event designers.

Located in the historic Union Building in DC’s Chinatown neighborhood, Prequel DC, features six unique spaces to host private events of all nature. The facilities offer a professional grade kitchen and prep space, as well as A/V capabilities and furniture rental on site.

Amaryllis Floral Event Design created a rustic atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
