30 Rockefeller Center, NY, NY 10112

What we like about it?

The Rainbow Room is probably one of the most talked-about NYC corporate event venues.  Whether it is for an intimate corporate event, wedding or any other special occasion, the space can be turned into anything you need.  We have photographed plenty of corporate events there and seen it set up for private wine and tequila tastings with the bars shifting around the room.  If you can be there for sunset you will be in for a treat with both the beauty of Manhattan out the windows and the light dancing through the crystals that line the windows creating the rainbows that the space is famous for.  An event at the Rainbow Room will no doubt impress your clients and colleagues alike.

What we like about it?

The Plaza Hotel is a staple in NYC, their event spaces are as incredible as you might imagine.  The Ballroom one thousand people, making it an ideal space for a gala or investors meeting.  The marble work and masonry are truly spectacular when you are in the space, you know you are somewhere special.  The lighting and seating can be adjusted for the mood and everyone will have a view of the stage for your evening keynote speaker.

Hotel Eventi

851 6th Ave, New York, NY 10001

What we like about it?

The Kimpton Hotel Eventi is a well-kept secret, NYC  corporate event spaces are a dime a dozen and this one really shines.  Located on 6th Avenue between 29th and 30th street, the space is a commuters dream.  On a nice summer evening, the indoor/outdoor space gives you a bit of fresh air only available on a rooftop in Manhattan.  With a 30 foot wide screen across the street to promote your event and brand, it is something not seen anywhere else.  The wine and food menu are just the icing on the cake for this space.

MoMA Events

11 W 53rd St, New York, NY 10019

What we like about it?

Have you ever thought about renting out the MoMA as a corporate event space?  You should.  The space is incredible, indoor, outdoor and two levels of entertaining goodness.  Fortunately for your insurance company, their is not much art in the space, but the space it self lives up to what you would expect from MoMA, modern, elegant and airy.

The Chatwal

Address

The Chatwal Events

130 West 44th Street, New York, NY, 10036

What we like about it?

The Chatwal is dripping with elegance with the charm of a working fireplace in just about every room.  This is a perfect space to host a intimate client of alumni event, there is plenty of charge and everyone will be in awe as the enter the rooms and are transported back to a time when dark mahogany ruled the conference room.

 

230 Fifth Ave Rooftop

Address

230 Fifth Ave

230 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10001

What we like about it?

To be fair, 230 Fifth is most often associated with European tourists having brunch and banker bros buying bottles on a Friday night.  Don’t let that phase you though, the roof top is an incredible space with one of the best North facing views below 34th Street.  It is one of, if not the best view, you will ever have of the Empire State Building with the rest of Midtown looming in the background.  On a warm Spring or Fall evening, it’s hard to beat a rooftop in Manhattan.

Gotham Hall

Gotham Hall is a wonderful Corporate Event Space in NYC

Address

Gotham Hall

1356 Broadway, New York, NY 10018

What we like about it?

Gotham Hall is located in the space that was once the Greenwich Savings Bank.  It is an incredible space to host a corporate event in, it has a 9,000 square foot main space, but feels even more massive due to the 70 foot ceilings, skylights and chandeliers that are a wonder to look at.  A very unique and impressive event venue in the heard of NYC that is unlike the rest.

Mandarin Oriental

Address

Mandarin Oriental NYC

80 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10023

What we like about it?

What is there to not like about the spectacular views of Central Park over Columbus Circle?  The Mandarin Oriental is full of class in a city with plenty of it.  Access to the outside world is plentiful, but why leave this place once you’re inside?  You can give your attendees one of the best experiences in New York without having them leaving the building over the duration of your conference or event.

3 West Club

Address

3 West Club

3 W 51st St, New York, NY 10019

What we like about it?

The collection of spaces at the 3 West Club is incredible.  You can host the formal portion of your event in the very straight forward Ballroom and then bring your guests up stairs for cocktails where the incredible Library awaits.  In what once housed a mansion, the 3 West Club has been transformed into a beautiful hotel and event space right in the heart of Rockefeller Center.

 

Convene

Address

Convene NYC

Multiple Locations in NYC

What we like about it?

Convene is the WeWork of corporate event spaces.  They have spaces sprinkled throughout Manhattan and each and every one of them is consistently unique and lends it self to the world of a modern office with clean, comfortable spaces, interesting art to look at and all of the amenities you could desire (Nitro Cold Brew on tap!) The spaces are more suited to a day long meeting with cocktails after than they are a unique place to go for the evening, but if you have your Board of Directors in town and are limited on space, this is a one stop shop for you to keep everyone close to the hotel and close to dinner as you will be able to find a location to fit your needs.

Tribeca Rooftop

Address

Tribeca Rooftop

2 Desbrosses Street, New York, NY 10013

What we like about it?

Giving your guests the chance to watch the sunset over the Hudson River from a spectacular rooftop in Tribeca is surely one way to make an event memorable.  Perfect for a Gala or other large celebration the Tribeca Rooftop leaves little to be desired on a beautiful sunny day.  The interior is modern with a spiral staircase bringing you back down from the roof into the main event space where you can have dinner and a dance floor waiting!

Project Farmhouse

Address

Project Farmhouse

76 E 13th St, New York, NY 10003

What we like about it?

This is a space where you can host an event and feel good about where the fees are going.  Aside from being a hip farm to venue space.  From their fresh micro green garden in the venue to the beautifully done vaulted ceilings, Project Farmhouse is the unique venue that none of your guests even knew existed in NYC.  Another perk is that they are a subsidiary of GrowNYC who provide the resources to help New Yorkers live sustainably.
