About ILA Penthouse

ILA Penthouse, or The Institute for the Living Arts, is an all encompassing event venue, educational space, and creative studio. Whether you are interested in an intimate dinner, launch party, or even challenging yourself to learn a new skill, ILA Penthouse is the place to be! ILA Penthouse is home to the famed FlowerSchool New York. Celebrating over 20 years of education, our venue is the perfect place for your corporate gathering or social event. Our all-inclusive, sustainably focused venue can host events from a 10 person private dinner to a 225 person cocktail party with seated dinner and endless partying options. We can cook, design and plan any event with little to no waste. Our approach to events is about planning ahead, sustainability, accessibility and creativity. Our efforts began with FlowerSchool in our floral design programs, where all of our classes adopted an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional floristry methods. From there we realized that not just the floral component of events should be eco-friendly, but there was no reason why the entire event shouldn't be good for the planet. We decided to invest in changing the way planners and designers approached events by offering eco-friendly solutions to all event needs, in a space already home to honoring the earth.

The space and staff were amazing. Hosted my daughter's sweet 16 for 120 family and friends, the venue was beautiful and the staff was wonderful throughout the planning and at the actual event.
