    Honestly, such an amazing experience from the start. Jill and Ken (owners) are so helpful and and attentive. Jill was always prompt to answer my emails and questions and concerns. The staff on my wedding day was amazing, such a great crew of people they have there! The food and drinks are OUTSTANDING, all of my guests were raving about the food ! All in all, if you are looking for a non-traditional wedding in NYC I would reccommend Hardings 1000000%

    Incredible Wedding at Harding's

    We had our wedding at Harding’s in December 2022. Everything was INCREDIBLE. From the gorgeous, elegant space (also the perfect size!) to the delicious food and drinks (stellar from cocktail hour through dinner and dessert), we are so happy we chose them. What truly shines about Harding’s are the people; Jill and Ken were a joy to plan with, and the day-of went flawlessly. The staff made us and our guests feel so taken care of – everyone went above and beyond. We continue to hear raves from our family and friends! We can’t recommend Harding’s enough – they made the most important day of our lives unforgettable, and we hope to celebrate special events with them for years to come.

    10/10 Would Recommend

    Harding's was the perfect venue for our classic NYC wedding. Jill and Ken are pros - easy to work with, know their stuff, come with great recommendations, and just all around great people. The venue itself is gorgeous, loved the chandeliers, exposed brick, and historical decor. Service was impeccable; staff was super nice and friendly, and never a line for food or drink. And speaking of, the food was DELISH, drinks were amazing. We had 88 people for a ceremony and cocktail style reception and it felt full but nowhere near crammed in. Plenty of room on the dance floor for everyone to sing and dance their hearts out all night long. Highly recommend!!!!
