    Alger House was amazing!

    The venue is beautiful and located in the middle of the West Village. We had an amazing experience working with Jeno (he was responsive and had great suggestions to make the wedding a seamless experience)! All of our guests were raving about the food and drinks! We cannot say enough good things about Alger House, Jeno, and the entire staff who helped make our wedding an incredible night! Thanks again - James and Vladimir!

    We were married on June 27th 2015 at Alger House and had an experience that was beautiful and stress-free from start to finish. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we saw it and decided to host both our ceremony and reception there. It is full of character and charming, positive atmosphere. On the night, the lighting was perfect, and the setting provided a stunning backdrop for photography. Monika was our contact throughout and was incredible, making the whole process very easy for us. We so appreciate everything she did to help us along the way. She's a warm and very calm person, with a great sense of humor - the perfect personality for this job. The team at Alger House are responsive and experts in creating a seamless experience. They turnaround the venue from the ceremony to the reception without guests even realizing that it is happening, and ensure that people are well-looked after. We would highly recommend Alger House and are plotting when we might next be able to host a fabulous event there! Thank you, Monika and Jeno.

    Stole our $2900 deposit

    THEY STOLE OUR $2900 DEPOSIT. DO NOT WORK WITH THESE PEOPLE

    We booked our wedding for 8/28/21 and put down a $2900 deposit. They then ghosted us for weeks afterwards, and were impossible to get in touch with. Finally after numerous phone calls, the owner Sam Milliken sent me a very dismissive email saying that our deposit check had never been cashed (which was untrue) and that we could have our money back because he could not guarantee the venue would be open by our wedding date. That was close to 2 months ago, and he is again ignoring our voicemails and emails.

    All of the positive reviews you see were for their amazing event coordinators like Monika, who were all laid off back in November and are no longer with the company. DO NOT WORK WITH THESE PEOPLE
