The George and Madcap Lounge

Historically rooted and bold in aesthetic

The George and Madcap Lounge are two unique and distinct event spaces located in the National Block Building in the heart of Walker’s Point. The sophisticated space of The George, an elegant ballroom with soaring windows and ceilings, 19th century architectural elements and modern finery. Drawing inspiration from a London club, the Madcap Lounge is just one floor removed from The George. Thoughtfully designed to offer a thoroughly unique and intimate experience. The Madcap Lounge may be reserved with The George or on its own. It’s a perfect setting for meetings, pre- and post-event cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners and other special celebrations.

Need to get ready for your event? The Celebration Suite offers the perfect place. A powder room and well-stocked refrigerator round out the amenities in this very special space, which accommodates 20 guests. The Celebration Suite is also available for small gatherings pre- and post-event – imagine wardrobe fittings, showers and gift openings.

We invite you to take a tour – you will find there is nothing ordinary about The George and Madcap Lounge.
