Manhattan Penthouse stands tall in the center of Manhattan on Fifth Avenue at 14th Street, boasting perhaps the best 360 degree views of any banquet facility anywhere. Its 8000 sq. ft. provide ample room for dining and dancing for 50 to 225 guests, while huge arched windows frame vast panoramas from Wall Street to Times Square and Brooklyn to Jersey City of skyscrapers, towers, and roof terraces. At night, the Empire State Building and many other dramatic skyscrapers light up all around.

Inside lies an amazing penthouse aerie, elegantly tailored and adorned with rich details, a model for trendy loft spaces, causing entering guests to exclaim, "I’d like to live here!" and Avenue Magazine to declare Manhattan Penthouse "the latest ’in’ space" at its grand opening.

Outstanding features in the Reception Room, Ballroom, and Executive Lounge include a magnificent oak and stained glass bar, paneled window seats, tall ficus trees, mirrored band area, special lighting, Baldwin grand piano, custom stereo, the finest catering equipment, beautiful oak floors, and those giant windows framing panoramic Manhattan views.

The beginning of a celebration has a special feeling as guests are treated to extraordinary cuisine and services in a magical, non-commercial setting. We look forward to helping you plan your magnificent event!

"Beautiful New York Wedding at the Manhattan Penthouse", An Eventective User from Fairview, NJ
My husband and I created our "fairy tale wedding" by renting the Manhattan Penthouse and bringing in outside catering. Located on the top floor of the historic building near Union Square, this bright 8,000-square-foot space can accommodate more that 200 seated guests (with dancing). There are arched twelve-foot-wide windows that yield panoramic views that stretch from Wall Street to Times Square, and Brooklyn to Jersey City. The penthouse really was a big surprise for entering guests who were struck by the many dramatic and panoramic views offered by the huge windows. And, to complete the effect: a strikingly beautiful stained-glass bar. The loft space is open and airy with more window than wall. There are paneled window seats, a beautiful grand piano, and illuminated ficus trees that surround the polished floors. The space rental cost us $3500, but of course the price differs depending on the day of the rental. Our wedding was a Sunday night - and yes, this is cheaper! We were married over Memorial Day Weekend, and with many out of town guests the Sunday was perfect.Rather than a full bar, we served wine, beer, and a special martini bar - "something old (classic martini), new (apple martini), borrowed (my raspberry cosmo recipe), and blue (Tarheel martini)." This way, we saved a ton by not having to stock all of the various mixers, etc. a full bar requires. Overall, the venue was more than perfect - chic, historical, world class, and we had no issues or problems at all. It really did make for a beautiful wedding! I would recommend Manhattan Penthouse heartily to anyone.
