The summer is a great time to entertain your associates. Many unique venues are scattered about the city that are perfect for hosting a small cocktail reception for you and your colleagus, and what better way to celebrate everyone's hard work than with delicious food and drinks. See my recommendations for venues below!

The Bergino Baseball Clubhouse is a hub of baseball artifacts and memorabilia. You can even arrange to spend the night speaking with an actual baseball scout while sipping some scotch and noshing on small bites as well as have personalized baseballs made for your team.
If you head to the Upper East Side, you'll find this hidden gem of a venue to consider: Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden. The garden makes for the ideal backdrop to an outdoor cocktail hour, and, if you would like to include a bit of adventure in your evening, you can add a murder/mystery night; this would be a terrific option for a team-building activity.

For a true "New Yorker" experience, head to the NYC Fire Museum for your event. While enjoying a few cocktails, you can learn about the history of the NYC Fire Department and speak with real NYC firefighters.
Another option for an iconic New York night that doesn't break the bank is Amateur Night at the Apollo. Watch aspiring stars battle it out to see who will win Top Dog!
Last, but certainly not least, Mae Mae Café can host a reception equipped with a cocktail or cooking demonstration. A GP chef can teach guests to make a few of our signature dishes, after which everyone can sit down and enjoy what they've prepared. Similarly, our Beverage Director, Luis Antonio Thompson, can teach guests how to make this season's new cocktails, such as these summer rosé drinks.
If you are interested in booking a party in any of the above spaces, email Event Director Jennifer Kelly.
