It’s safe to say that many of us are ready to close the book on 2020. But no matter how much we’re anticipating the new year and its symbolic fresh start, we’d be remiss not to savor this holiday moment, no matter how different it may look this year. Connecting with those we love, giving thoughtful gifts that matter, appreciating the beauty of our city—that’s what these next few weeks are all about, and CityCenterDC is the perfect place for it.
Maybe for you, sparking holiday joy starts with strolling hand-in-hand (or mitten-in-mitten) among twinkling holiday lights, or perusing stacks of cozy cashmere to find the perfect gift for grandma. Or perhaps the split second when everyone smiles during a photo-opp is what gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling. Then again, maybe it’s just a moment of “me time” over a glass of wine at your favorite restaurant, after the holiday shopping is done. Wherever your holiday joy comes from, we invite you to find it with us at CityCenterDC.
What could be cozier on a winter morning than a bed piled high with fine cashmere bedding? The iconic Italian design house crafts its 100% cashmere throw blankets and pillow covers with an impeccable heirloom quality you’ll treasure for years.
Feeling lucky? Modeled after the classic six-sided die, this cheeky wristlet from the brand synonymous with festive get-togethers is the perfect accessory for all your holiday looks.
Made from rare, super-soft baby cashmere, the Thompson Bomber and Trouser set is the only loungewear you’ll need—and the perfect way to ring in the new year in comfy, cozy style.
There’s no better place to cross names off your holiday list than the renowned perfumery. And since 2021 is already dubbed the “year of self-care,” you might as well pick up a candle for yourself, too.
Book a special gathering for family, friends, or colleagues, and rest assured that the restaurant’s safety, cleanliness, and social distancing standards are top-notch.

Virtual cooking Class
Whether you’re seeking a break from WFH boredom or an out-of-the-box team-building experience, a virtual session to brush up on your knife skills or expand your wine know-how could be just the ticket.
EXPLORE THE DREAM CLOSET
Just in time for the holidays, the Dream Closet installation has returned to CityCenterDC, with modern ornaments artfully crafted by SWATCHROOM and suspended overhead in Palmer Alley. This elegant, inspired take on a winter wonderland is the perfect backdrop for romantic evening strolls, selfies with friends, or family photos. The 400 gleaming ornaments were inspired by the silhouette of clothes hangers and constructed in an array of sizes, patterns, and styles by the D.C.-based design and fabrication studio. By elevating the most iconic symbol of retail to a work of art, the installation celebrates both the retailers at CityCenterDC and the exceptional quality of their wares.
MAGIC HAPPENS IN DOWNTOWN DC
Thought the best holiday lights were in the suburbs? Think again: The 75-foot holiday tree is returning to The Park at CityCenterDC in all its festive glory. One of the largest in the District, the dazzling tree will be decked with more than 150,000 glowing lights and 4,500 ornaments. The beloved (and brilliantly lit) 25-foot reindeer, crafted from 37,000 manzanita branches, are also returning to The Plaza at CityCenterDC. We might be a little biased, but we think a walk among the shops and restaurants is the perfect way to get your twinkle-light fix without any of the traffic. Another idea: If the usual trips to visit family aren’t in the cards this year, why not plan a holiday staycation? Consider an overnight at the Conrad hotel, where you can see downtown D.C. from a new perspective and find joy in all the art, food, and culture right in your own backyard.
