Beautiful building; incredibly grateful to everyone responsible for bringing it back into the Jewish community and restoring it on behalf of the Jewish community, the neighborhood, and the general public (for historic / cultural purposes). Nice feel inside. Glad it is used by multiple Jewish organizations and groups, sometimes simultaneously, to offer a variety of Jewish learning and practice -- truly is a communal space. Interesting as a concert venue: intimate, pretty, definitely clean, though admittedly a little odd. Something about the general in-house programming strikes me as a little less warm-community feeling, more happy-hour like.
This is one of the great venues in the area. It hosts a variety of acts from book signings to comedy shows. Ive seen Aziz Ansari and the Freakanomics Authors there. They sometimes offer drinks depending on the show but no food. There is no assigned seating so I suggest arriving very early to get in line to get a seat. The seats are only about 6 feet from the stage on the lower level so you really get up close and personal with the the acts. They also have seating in an upper level balcony which looks nice but Ive never been up there.
Fantastic space! Not only is the history great, but the events there are always top-notch. Ive been a few times and they host a wonderful series of speakers, authors, and other events in addition to religious ones. The building itself is gorgeous (especially the stained glass windows) and its fun to have a tour. I encourage everyone to visit Sixth and I even once.
This place isnt just a synagogue; there are all types of events going on all the time. Ive been here for concerts, comedians, book signings and DC Tech Meetup. The dome is beautiful. The pew seating is comfortable but get there early as there are some seats obstructed by poles or equipment. They serve drinks in the basement for some events.
Cool old synagogue in the heart of DC. They are non-denomination so each week they change up the services. So make sure to check the calendar because if you want to go to a reformed service and it is the orthodox week or vice versa then you might be a little confused.
Wonderful event space. Lovely historic architecture. The staff is kind, quick, and on top of things that need to be done (ushering, taking care of hiccups, and all those kind of profesionnal things)
An older building with a lot of character. Highly recommended for more intimate events like radio shows, talks, etc. I dont believe they serve food or drinks.
Great venue offering interesting speakers and events in smaller rooms, all in a beautiful building. The 930 club of small room speaking tours in DC.
