Celebrate the Holidays at Capital One Hall

Time to deck the halls - the holiday season is now upon us! The team at Capital One Hall is more excited than ever for the holidays and with all the shows and decorations, we are feeling merry and bright. If you’re looking for the best way to spend the holidays with your loved ones and ensure they’re entertained, you’re in the right place. Take a look at everything Capital One Hall has in store.

Decorations to Knock Your Bells Off
One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is by surrounding yourself with beautiful decorations, and at Capital One Hall, we’ve come prepared. Our exterior features 133 feet of garland and is watched over by a 13 ft nutcracker so every passerby can have an extra dose of holiday cheer! When you walk inside Capital One Hall, you’ll see three larger-than-life gifts just waiting to be given and over 700 ft of garland on the grand staircase and balconies.  As you enter the atrium, you’ll be greeted by a 9 foot Menorah and Christmas tree standing at 24 feet tall and 13 feet wide, creating a perfect backdrop for a photo!     

Santa Brunch for the Whole Family
The holiday fun doesn’t stop there though. On Sunday, December 11th, The Watermark Hotel will be hosting a festive brunch buffet with the man himself - Santa Clause! Reservations are available between 11am and 2pm, but trust us, this event will fill up fast (make yours here). Our menu has been cheerfully created by our Executive Chef Yo Matsuzaki and features his own twist on the southern classic, chicken and waffles. Drinks will include La Colombe coffee, Forte tea and hot cocoa with marshmallows.  For the adults, there will be mimosas, bellinis and a build your own bloody mary bar, available for purchase. Santa will be sure to swing by for a special visit, and you can even purchase a photo package to save this memory for years to come.  Make an afternoon out of it and grab tickets to see the Ravel Dance Company’s production of The Nutcracker at 2pm, tickets can be purchased here.
