Only in town for a bit? Get a double dose of history and quality entertainment at DAR Constitution Hall – DC’s largest concert hall. Host to a variety of events throughout the year, including concerts, operas, high-profile lecturers and comedians, Constitution Hall is no stuffy federal building. As a Registered National Historical Landmark and owned by the elite Daughter’s of the American Revolution organization, this gorgeous venue has hosted every US President since Calvin Coolidge with performers from across the map – from Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Duke Ellington to Billy Joel, U2, Aerosmith and Jimmy Buffet. Needless to say, for such a prestigious structure, the entertainment factor is definitely not lacking.
Insider’s Tip: Purchase all DAR tickets through ticketmaster.com, as the DAR does not handle ticket sales.
