The Anthem is a music venue and auditorium under construction 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 (USD), will have a movable stage and backdrop that will allow capacity to vary from 2,500 to 6,000. Balconies will be closer to the stage than most venues, to offer the best views. The venue will be operated by I.M.P., which manages Washington's 9:30 Club and Lincoln Theatre as well as Maryland's Merriweather Post Pavilion.
