Best Venues for Holiday Events
by Beth Kaiserman

It’s not too soon to start thinking about dazzling holiday parties. Here are our staff’s picks for the best holiday parties this year.

Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park

Nothing says 'Happy Holidays' like Winter Village, which transforms Bryant Park into a winter wonderland starting at the end of October. Its event space overlooks the skating rink and park for a truly jolly seasonal affair.

Great Northern Food Hall

Our new partner for exciting fresh food-fueled events in Claus Meyer's inviting food hall in the iconic Grand Central Terminal. More info here.

Hudson Mercantile

Sleek, modern spaces in the Hudson Yards district, Hudson Mercantile is great for a multi-floor experience with great views of the Empire State Building, NY Times building, and the Hudson River.

Strand Rare Book Room

There’s nothing like cozying up with some books in the winter. Surround your guests with rare leather-bound classics and signed first editions. Check out the hand printed book from 1480!

Gary’s Lofts

The rooms at Gary’s Lofts, five in Brooklyn and three in Manhattan, are made to feel like home. There are bedrooms, living rooms, fireplaces and more for a cozy holiday gathering.

New York Public Library

Support the library’s collections, services and programs by hosting your event in one of its spaces, like the iconic Stephen A. Schwarzman building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Four rooms with marble arches, carved oak ceilings and paneling, and large murals create an approachable yet elegant event.

Brooklyn Museum

Not only is it the site of our annual Latke Festival, but the Brooklyn Museum is a gorgeous space for any cheerful holiday gathering. Let the Beaux-Arts Court be the backdrop for a fantastic party.

See Columbus Circle and Central Park from several stories high at Jazz, with its warm glow and velvety red carpets for a warm and stylish holiday affair. 

Dobbin Street

Along the Williamsburg waterfront, Dobbin Street is a converted factory with beautiful skyline views.

Glass Houses

Located in the Chelsea Arts Tower, Glass Houses’ floor-to-ceiling windows allow excellent waterfront views of the Hudson River, lower Manhattan and Midtown.

International Center of Photography Museum

Enjoy the holidays surrounded by amazing photography, exploring the past and present of images and their influence in society.

Met Pavilion

The former B. Altman Department Store of 1896 and upper industrial lofts from 1929, along with modern enhancements, create a unique and elegant space in an ideal Chelsea location. The rooms are sleek and easy to transform.

Apollo Theater

The NYC landmark Mainstage’s Belle‐Époque crimson décor offers exquisite holiday ambiance. 

Asia Society

World class art and beautiful exhibitions create a stunning and memorable atmosphere for the holidays.
