The Grand Opening Event of the Season!

It’s what we’ve all been waiting for…Gallery Bethesda II’s Grand Opening!

From street-level to the top of Bethesda, this event promises to be a spectacular showcase of the best luxury apartment living in downtown Bethesda, and is the one event this spring you simply should not miss. Mark your calendar now, so you don’t.

Saturday, April 27, noon to 4 p.m.

On The Plaza

What would an event of this magnitude be without live entertainment? Performing in the plaza area, Practically Einstein, a staple on the DC music scene for years. These veteran rockers know how to get the party going with their signature brand of alt-rock, spiked with doses of Britpop, Americana and soul, as well as a selection of crowd-pleasing and eclectic covers—think MGMT, Hall & Oates, Green Day, the Ramones, etc. They’re sure to keep the energy up and the rock 'n' roll flowing throughout the event. 


As you enter into the lobby, you’ll transition into a sophisticated affair introducing you to the elegant lobby and amenity spaces of Gallery Bethesda II's lower level. Get a glimpse of the cyber lounge as a delectable assortment of curated hors d’oeuvres and desserts are offered by the convivial servers and chefs at Black Tie Catering. Then explore the state-of-the-art, health club-inspired fitness center and imagine the convenience of having such a space right downstairs from your apartment. A delightful spread of artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, refreshments, beer, and wine, will complement a walkthrough of the everyday conveniences that fill the first floor, including the mailroom, package and cold storage, and the ever-important pet spa for those with furry roommates. 


On The Rooftop
Venture to the rooftop to get a bird’s eye view of the city and engage in a festive atmosphere in our most alluring amenity spaces. Wafting through the space will be the incredible scent of fresh, handcrafted pizza emanating from our rooftop pizza ovens. Chef Josh from Cipolla Rossa will be making his unique blend of classic Italian Neapolitan and thin-crust New York pizzas throughout the event. Take a seat in the private dining area, clubroom lounge (opposite the gaming area with billiards, TVs and foosball), or out on the terrace, where the panoramic views will leave you wondering, “Can I move in today?”

The enticing amenities continue with a stroll by the pool and onto the sun deck, down the skywalk to the dog park or the green roof area with more intimate seating. You’ll see just how expansive and inviting this rooftop paradise is without much effort. Follow your whirlwind tour with a stop by a very special gallery Bethesda II ice sculpture and luge for parting shot to the extravagant experience.


The Apartments

Undoubtedly, the stunningly crafted residences are an essential part of any visit, and what you will be looking at most intently. While we can’t do justice to the experience of living in a Gallery Bethesda II apartment in a short paragraph, when you take a moment from the festivities to walk through the living spaces, chef-quality kitchens, spa-inspired baths, and take in the textures, colors, and finishes, you will get a more complete picture of the heights to which we’ve gone to create apartments that will surely meet even the highest of expectations.

In addition to all of these active and alluring spaces, there will a host of local businesses joining the event with indulgent surprises around every corner. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updated details on the event and local businesses participating!
