The perfect venue for us!

We absolutely loved our wedding at Houston Hall. The space is amazing and really needed very little to dress it up because it's so cool already! We booked in 2019 and have worked with a few different coordinators over the years due to COVID delays, but Christon worked with us in the final lead up and on the big day and she was fantastic! She went out of her way to be flexible with us on dropping off/collecting decor, offered extra details like menu cards and signature cocktail signs, and she was responsive and easy to work with. Our friends and family absolutely loved the space and the food!

Houston Hall is the best NYC Venue

I can't highly recommend Houston Hall enough. Brenda the manager was super responsive and helpful in the planning process. Her and her team were incredibly helpful and professional. I had hundreds of emails back and forth her and she answered all my questions and took care of so much for us. The venue vibes are absolutely gorgeous doesn't need much decoration and the little decoration we Brought in Brenda and her team put up the decorations and place cards for us! And the food! their menu is absolutely to die for. I received numerous compliments about the cocktail hour food and dinner food!! Everyone was so obsessed with food. And when I wanted to bring in all my dessert spreads to the table Brenda was super accommodating to what were hoping to do. The only misunderstanding we had was about how many people would be able to sit during the ceremony. We had 90 people and the chairs were set to about 60 ish people which I think is the max amount they can fit to set up for a ceremony. But other than that small detail everything ran so smoothly. The waitstaff was amazing there our wine glasses were full and myself and my now husband were always asked if needed a drink or anything. We felt super special and taken care of. My family raved it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. Highly recommend Houston Hall for your NY wedding!!

Fabulous Party Spot!

As parent of groom we had our greeting party here the night before the wedding for out of town guests and wedding party. It was a perfect spot. Jorie, the event planner, was helpful from the start and with us being out of town was wonderful to work with even long distance.
The space was large to accomodate our crowd, the food delicious , the bar amply stocked and atmosphere so much fun for all attending.
I would highly recommend the spot and Jorie to work with for anyone wanting a unique spot to through a large party or wedding.
