With over 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space, we are able to accommodate groups from 2 to 500 guests in a unique minimalist Scandinavian environment in the heart of historic Georgetown. Please note that we are not able to host weddings and other private social events, such as birthdays, anniversaries and mitzvahs.
If you are interested in hosting an event in House of Sweden, please contact Ulrika Frank, Event Center Manager, Embassy of Sweden, at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Event Request’ in the subject line.
The hall - with its spacious lobby, flanked by two 10 ft. high running waterfalls - is an ideal setting for business receptions and banquets or for seated theater-style settings for any project presentation, panel discussion or seminar.
In addition, its excellent acoustics and audio and visual equipment makes it a supreme space for concerts and performances where a stage or a dance floor are available for setup. The hall can be divided into two separate spaces which can be used individually or combined.
The room comes equipped with a projector and can comfortably accommodate up to 14 people.
The room may be used individually or as a breakout room during bigger events.

Crestron UC-SB10CAM video conference smart sound bar and camera.

Separately, Rooms 4 and 5 are ideal for conferences, meetings and breakout rooms and, combined, they are a perfect choice for a reception overlooking House of Sweden’s beautiful garden to the north and the reflective pools to the south.
With a great view of Rock Creek, highlighted by both indoor and outdoor reflective pools and separated by a floor-to-ceiling glass wall, guests may mingle both inside the Atrium and step outside on the stone walkway overlooking the creek.
