The Anthem is a music venue and auditorium in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington, D.C.. The Anthem is part of District Wharf, a comprehensive redevelopment of the Southwest Waterfront area.
The 57,000-square-foot venue, which cost $60 million, has a movable stage and backdrop that will allow capacity to vary from 2,500 to 6,000. Balconies are closer to the stage than most venues, to offer the best views. The venue is operated by I.M.P., which manages Washington's 9:30 Club and Lincoln Theatre as well as Maryland's Merriweather Post Pavilion. The Anthem also hosts conventions.
