Woman Getting Married Says:

I think this venue is a great option for a wedding reception. I worry about the space if you’re only renting one floor and doing both a ceremony and reception, however if your budget allows doing a ceremony on one floor and the reception on another could be a great combination. Keep in mind that the terrace space of 200 sq. feet isn’t going to allow for much except for a couple tables and a handful of people at a time. I think their beverage pricing for a full bar is also pretty reasonable for NYC, so that’s a big plus in my book as well. Plus, how can you beat those views?!
