Previously known as the Washington Awards Gala, the 2017 inaugural Halcyon Awards was one of the most innovative, annual events in the D.C. area.

The night continued with Halcyon's Neon Speakeasy, the official Halcyon Awards After-Party. Guests channeled the smoky, secret rooms of 1920s deco Americana and celebrated the iconic neon lights of a timeliness Ocean Drive in a party-meets-after-party event held in Union Station's Presidential Suite. This was the after-party where creativity didn't sleep, where custom tailored suits met finely tailored DJ sets and where endless entertainment met endless inspiration.
