Lexus President Seats
The best seats at Nationals Park are the Lexus President Seats on the Field Level. They are located in sections A through E, which you can find on the interactive seating chart, which allows you to see exactly where your seat is, what part of the field you’ll be facing, and how much the tickets cost. Tickets include an all-inclusive gourmet buffet, which provides draft beer, house wine, and soda. You can order your food and drink and have it brought directly to your seat. You also receive access to the three clubs.
The Lexus Presidents Club is located behind Home Plate and provides VIP seating, cherry wood-covered walls, custom chandeliers, and the Oval Office Bar, which offers an insider’s view of the batting cages and Press Conference room. The Club can be reserved for special occasions, including weddings, business meetings, after-hours parties, and cocktail parties. Its exclusivity will impress both friends and business partners.
The PNC Diamond Club is one of the most captivating spaces at the stadium. It includes an expansive bar, comfortable lounge, behind-the-plate views of the park, and an outdoor porch. If you’re looking for an exclusive place to watch the ball game without feeling too fancy, this is the club for you. The PNC Diamond Club provides a nostalgic air of casual elegance. It’s a perfect spot for a casual business meeting, after-hours get-together, or even a bachelor party.
The Stars and Stripes Club stretches from first base and wraps completely around the park to third base. It’s the largest club in the park, and features two distinct rooms, two-story windows with views of the river and monuments, a granite-topped bar, and stadium views from both sides. The connected clubs are attached to private suits, allowing members of your party to have some alone time during the game if they wish. It’s a great place for a family reunion, large birthday or anniversary party, wedding rehearsal, or even the wedding reception itself. The Stars and Stripes Club also makes a great rental for fashion shows, food and wine tastings, and company extravaganzas.

These seats are located in sections 101 to 143, spreading all the way around the field. Tickets range from $20 to $60 per game.
If you choose not to purchase the Lounge tickets, you’ll find a range of food and beverages at surrounding vendors, including those at the Club Level, located two sections down.
Club seating provides plenty of great views of the field, allows in-seat wait service, and access to the Stars and Stripes Club.

Seats at the Club level are located in sections 206 to 221.
Most of the concessions for this section are available at the Stars and Stripes Club on the Field Level, about two sections down, near the Lexus Presidents seating.

It stretches from third base to the left-field corner and first base to the right-field corner. Located in sections 223 to 235, most of the seats on the Mezzanine level provide a good view of the field. Premium seats are located closer to home plate. Front row seats of each section are preferred, and therefore cost more.
There are several bars and concessions available on the Mezzanine Level. Premium and top-shelf liquors and domestic brews can be found at the All-Star Bar. Blue Smoke offers a range of barbecue concessions. If you’re looking for classic ball park concessions, such as hot dogs and burgers, sausages, and nachos, try Diamond Classics.

Split into two levels, the Gallery Level is placed one section closer to the field than the Upper Gallery. The seats are located in sections 306 through 321 in the infield and sections 301 to 305 in the outfield. Seats spread from left field corner to just outside the third base line. Tickets cost $1,394 for Outfield Gallery seats and $1,804 for Infield Gallery seats for the season. Gallery seats only offer a mediocre view of the field because of the height from the field.
The Gallery Level features several bars and concessions. Premium and top-shelf liquors as well as domestic and local brews can be found at the All-Star Bar and Baseline Brews. Ben’s Chili Bowl is a favorite among fans. Other vending choices range from hot dogs and burgers at Nats Dogs, pizza from Papa John’s, cheese steak from Steak of the Union, and chicken from Foggy Bottom Diner.

Snacks range from fries and chips to chicken tenders to kettle corn.
Upper Gallery Level
Located at the highest level of the park, the Upper Gallery is divided into three sections: Nationals upper infield gallery seats on the third base side, Nationals upper outfield gallery seats overlooking left field, and Nationals grandstand seats deep in the left field corner. The seats are located in sections 403 through 409 and 416 through 420. All of the seats are located very high above the field and make it difficult to watch the games. Season tickets cost $820 for Upper Outfield Gallery and $1,394 for Upper Infield Gallery seats. You can order your Nationals tickets online or buy them at the game.
Concessions can be found on the Gallery Level, which is just below the Upper Gallery Level. A range of foods is available on the Gallery level, including pizza, hot dogs, burgers, fries, kettle corn, and funnel cakes.
