Whether you are planning a wedding reception, bar or bat mitzvah, retirement party, corporate meeting or a golf outing, Westwood Country Club provides you with everything you need. We pride ourselves in being one of the most elegant facilities in Northern Virginia, with food, service and creativity to match. Westwood has space to accommodate your event, no matter the size. The Grande Ballroom seats up to 400 persons and can accommodate up to 350 if elegant stations and entertainment space is required. The Founders Room, The Pub and the Cup Room are also available for smaller parties, dinners or meetings. From the events onset, until its completion, our Director of Catering, Janie Mathieson and Executive Chef David Spychalski will work with you to satisfy your wants, needs and budget. We will help with décor, detail planning and menu selection, and our dedicated and experienced service staff will tend to and anticipate your every need during the event.
While a private club, we do allow non-members to use our facility, and put forth the same talent and effort for all. Premium dates often book as much as a year in advance, so we urge all interested parties to contact our Catering department as early as they can.
Our private banquet dining menus are only a sample of our culinary expertise. We would be delighted to set up an appointment to tailor a special menu for you and your guests. Chose a menu button below to download a PDF menu.
Event Criteria and Deadlines
Guaranteed headcounts, vendor information and deliveries to be made to the club, as well as a list of items you may be bringing, should be turned into the banquet manager two full weeks prior to your event. You may add to your guaranteed minimum by no more than 20 persons up to three full business days prior to the event by 2:00 p.m. Minimum guaranteed attendance must be received within 72 hours of the event. If attendance falls below the guaranteed number, the host will be charged for the guaranteed number.
Westwood and its Catering Director would be happy to provide you with references for vendors we have enjoyed working with for photography, floral arrangements, musical entertainment, pastry chef, and more. You are not, however, limited to our recommended vendors to work with your event.
Be it linens, floral displays, light shows or anything in your imagination, the Catering Director would be happy to meet with you to go over decoration designs and rental information. All decorations and items displayed within Westwood Country Club must be approved by the Club prior to the event.
Deposits and Payment
Westwood Country Club requires that all billing information be turned into the Catering Director in writing at the time of booking. Westwood cannot guarantee an event date without a deposit. Deposits are non-refundable. Upon receipt of the deposit, the Catering Director will issue the host an initial contract for the event. Hosts are encouraged to pick up a copy of our event policies and procedures from the club. Westwood Country Club does not accept credit cards.
Service, Tax and Labor
A service charge of 20% and a state and local tax charge of 9% will be added to all food and beverage charges. In addition, a labor and/or room fee may be charged to cover the use of the room, set up and break down, and cleaning expenses. For certain events requiring additional bartenders, coat room attendants, or chef-attended stations, an attendant fee also will apply. A valet parking fee will apply to all events with more than 100 guests.
Menu and Pricing
You can receive Westwood’s banquet menus either by visiting the club or by mail. Copies are electronically linked above. Please call the Catering Director to discuss details that might not be found on the menus or to discuss any dietary restrictions or requests. Menu prices and availability are subject to change without notice. For certain events, Westwood may be able to contract the current menu price for the host, but only for an event that is scheduled no later than 12 months from the date the contract is issued.
