This 1920s Art Deco venue just off of the Avenue of the Arts features a lavish grand hall for up to 200 seated guests, and is outfitted with mahogany floors, crystal chandeliers, and large windows that allow natural light to pour in. (You can even have a little Juliet moment by peeking over the mezzanine balcony overlooking the ballroom before you descend the granite staircase to your party.) Stephen Starr Events is the exclusive caterer, and theyll work with you to devise a menu with hors doeuvres, stations, and a sit-down dinner with plated entr_es. In honor of the venues history (it was the Hotel Sylvania back in the 20s), Starr offers the option to re-create the 1923 grand-opening menu of the original hotels restaurant, featuring items like filet au poivre with potatoes Lorraines and an elderflower-and-strawberry bombe. Catering prices start at $99 per person.
