The Royal

About this venue

Welcome to one of Northern Virginia’s newest and most prestigious venues. Located in the heart of Northern Virginia, The Royal Banquet & Events Center is just minutes from The Mixing Bowl. The Royal has been a long standing venue, previously called Empire, and even formerly, Jaxx – which were known for hosting some of the greatest musical bands that toured the area, as well as almost every local band, for the last few decades. The new venue, The Royal, has been catered to host more than just concerts. With the open hall layout, major renovations and beautiful redecoration, The Royal is now the ideal venue to hosts events, such as Weddings, Engagements, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Quinceañeras, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Graduations, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Corporate Events, Concerts, Conferences, Funeral Services and many other types of gatherings

At The Royal, we pride ourselves on providing the best service to our guests and hosts. Our goal is to give you a night to remember; that’s why we thrive on customer satisfaction. And by being able to offer something for everyone, no matter what type of event you’re hosting or what your budget is, it makes us one of the premier venues available. Make an appointment or reservation, and spend some time with our dedicated Event Coordinator to get a real feel of what we offer.
