Perfect venue for a NYC wedding

We decided to "elope" and planned our wedding reception for 50 at the PUBLIC Hotel in less than a month. We booked out the Ava & Sunrise Terrace for a lunch reception. First doing a cocktail hour out at the terrace, which overlooks the Manhattan skyline, then for a sitdown lunch in Ava. Despite the tight deadline, Lauren was super accommodating and easy to work with. Many of our guests said that the food was the best wedding food they've had. The team at the PUBLIC Hotel was amazing to work with and they helped us put together our dream wedding. Thank you!!!

We had a wonderful wedding at Public last week. The ambience was terrific, the food was great and the service made the evening run smoothly. I would highly recommend this as a wedding/event venue. The Manhattan skyline allows the host/hostess to create a beautiful event, with minimal concern about extensive decorations. Public also has great bars and clubs, which made it a lot of fun for us and our out of town guests!
