901 Wharf Street SW
The Anthem, a concert hall and auditorium, is located in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington, D.C. It had its grand opening on October 12, 2017, featuring an opening act by The Struts and a headline performance by the Foo Fighters. The Anthem is a constituent of The Wharf, which is an extensive revitalization project of the Southwest Waterfront district. Spanning over 57,000 square feet and constructed at a cost of $60 million USD, The Anthem boasts a versatile stage and backdrop that can be adjusted to accommodate a varying audience size ranging from 2,500 to 6,000. The balconies in this venue are notably nearer to the stage compared to most other venues. The establishment is managed by I.M.P., a company that also oversees the operation of other notable venues such as the 9:30 Club and Lincoln Theatre in Washington, and the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland. Additionally, The Anthem is a venue for hosting conventions.
