When we met Virginia Arrisueno and her now-husband Kelly Towles four years ago, we almost immediately knew we were destined to create something big together. Ulysses Room has been a labor of love for everyone involved – an inspiring and creative multi-purpose space where we plan to host our own carefully curated events. Ulysses Room will also be available for rent to other creative groups looking to hold similarly inspiring and exciting events.

This past Saturday we held a preview party for friends and media sponsored by some of our favorite locals: Kushi, Green Hat Gin, DC Brau, and Honest Tea. The response to our space and the amazing spread our sponsors donated was overwhelming and invigorating. Thank you with all our heart to everyone that attended the launch party and to our friends and family who helped us make Ulysses Room possible.

Our Sponsors

Kushi
One of our favorite restaurants in Washington DC – serving the best modern Japanese izakaya and sushi in the city.

Green Hat Gin
Our new favorite spirit; a beautifully complex hand-crafted gin made in DC’s first craft distillery in more than a century.

DC Brau
DC’s first brewery since 1956. Our favorite beer is the Citizen – preferably consumed in limited-edition bottles designed by Kelly Towles.

Honest Tea
Our every-day beverage of choice (especially the Peach Oolong flavor) for many years now. The best bottled-tea we’ve ever tasted.
