This spacious banquet space is a former bank turned event space in the heart of Manhattan. Its ornate 7-story stained glass domed ceiling, above its 10,000 square foot ballroom, surrounded by its grand Corinthian columns, gorgeous marble, and unique oval shape contribute to its warm, elegant feeling. The venue combines the style of Manhattan’s Broadway with the sophistication and tradition of New York’s finest architecture.
If you are planning a social event, the Midtown West venue's striking architecture is the perfect backdrop for an elegant wedding, formal engagement party, bridal shower or anniversary celebration. Many guests enjoy a bar or bat mitzvah, sweet-sixteen party, family reunion or birthday celebration under the skylight and gilded dome of the Grand Ballroom.
For corporate events, each of the 5 meeting rooms provide businesses with the latest audiovisual equipment, teleconferencing and a wireless T-1 internet connection. Guests find the accommodations conducive to daytime events such as business breakfasts, corporate luncheons, team-building seminars, sales meetings, or multi-day exhibitions. Companies are equally as comfortable planning formal events such as cocktail receptions and seated dinners.
