About Harold Pratt House

Based in New York City, the Harold Pratt House is a vintage and historic mansion that features a classic ballroom and six spaces for hosting any wedding or special event. One of New York’s grand Park Avenue mansions originally constructed in 1919, many consider the Harold Pratt House to be one of the hidden gems of the Upper East Side.

Facilities and Capacity
A majestic marble staircase connects the ballroom and each of the six rooms, which includes a library, drawing room, and reception. Each room features cathedral ceilings, original chandeliers, fireplaces, and views of Park Avenue. Couples with larger guest counts can choose to use Peterson Hall that adjoins the rooms, and the mansion can hold up to 180 guests.

Services Offered
The ballroom, in conjunction with the other rooms of the house, can host any event, whether it is a bridal shower, ceremony, engagement party, or reception. The Harold Pratt House also includes a bridal suite, as well as event planning services.

Other Facilities
Inside the reception room are a fireplace and wood paneled walls, which bring warmth to the room. The reception room adjoins the drawing room and sitting room, which can all connect to be utilized for larger receptions. Moreover, the sitting room is a corner room with architectural moldings and a decorative fireplace that is used for more private and smaller parties, while the library fosters a dramatic setting fit for any reception. The library includes a marble fireplace, burnished walls, and a wraparound balcony for couples to use. The ballroom is fit for sit-down dinners, as there is beautiful inlaid flooring and gracious double-heighted windows that offer memorable views of Park Avenue.

History
This elegant home was constructed between 1919 and 1920 by architect William Adams Delano using the best available materials. It is said that the cost of construction equated to over one million dollars in 1920. In 1944, no one was living in the home, and as a result, the home was boarded up due to the Great Depression. On April 16, 1945, the home officially opened as the new headquarters for the Council on Foreign Relations, after it was donated to the Council.

    Our wedding was at the Harold Pratt House, and we couldn’t have imagined a better location! We didn’t want a ballroom, and we wanted to have a more intimate wedding. The Harold Pratt House was the perfect location. We loved that we got to use multiple rooms in a historic mansion. Our guests commented on how beautiful and sophisticated every room is. Our day-of-coordinator April was excellent as well. She went above and beyond before and during the wedding to ensure that our event was perfect. I sent her dozens of emails and she always responded within 24 hours or less. She also provided great advice, and was invaluable during our planning process. We highly recommend the Harold Pratt House and the coordinating services they offer!

    We wanted a historic venue to be the setting of our nuptials, and after seeing a number of other venues, we knew that this was it. We truly fell in love with the space when we walked into the library on the second floor. The staff (especially April Sherwin) was amazing - very responsive and accommodating, and always willing to help. This was especially important wince we were planning all-day, multi-cultural wedding with two ceremonies and meals! This space was perfect for our wedding of just around 100 guests. If you're looking for old New York history and glam, in a quieter neighborhood, and a venue that needs minimal added decor, this is it!
