THE SPHINX CLUB AT FRANKLIN SQUARE
GRAND BALLROOM
1315 K Street NW   Washington DC 20005



Exceptional elegance is the only way to describe the Sphinx Club at Almas Temple, one of Washington, D.C.'s premiere venues. Built in 1929, the historic landmark is positioned on the beautiful Franklin Square in the center of downtown just 4 blocks from the White House. Situated right next to the Hamilton Crowne Plaza hotel and within easy walking distance of Metro, the prime location is handicap accessible and provides easy access to indoor parking.

The facade of the building was inspired by the famous Alhambra, a Moorish palace in Granada, Spain built between 1338-1390.  Since the facade has been declared a historic landmark, it had to be taken down tile-by-tile, numbered, and reassembled in its present location.  It is one of the last mosaic tile facades left in the city of Washington.
