Really Special Venue + Amazing Food!

In love with our wedding venue! We stumbled upon SECOND after paying a site visit to the ballroom at the Eventi Hotel next door. It was honestly everything we were looking for but hadn't found yet, making the venue maybe one of NYC's wedding best kept secrets. It was the perfect, unique mix of industrial/rustic/modern for us and in a perfect location, as many people were flying in from out of town. (Herald square isn't the chicest of NYC neighborhoods, but being near Penn Station and staying at the Eventi was great for our guests.)

We started with Julie, who, sad for us, left in the earlier stages of planning. After a Covid postponement, Kevi and Joe picked up where Julie left off and were so wonderful to work with, addressing every single last email/phone question we had. They were knowledgeable (I'm pretty sure Joe knew more than I did re: some of the details of a Jewish wedding) and dedicated to making our wedding day seamless. We also had some last-minute Covid cancellations and they were super understanding and accommodating.

What's also so special about this venue is the food! IT. IS. SO. GOOD. From the tasting to the wedding day, which is rare for wedding food! The presentation of each and every bit was pristine as was the flavor. Guests raved about their meals, which, again, is quite rare at a wedding when serving a large group!

Great space. Great food. Great people. 11/10!

Unique and beautiful space with fantastic food and paralleled service

We looked at so many venues and there is simply no place like Second in Manhattan, or the tri-state area in general for that matter! The space is SO unique, and all of our guests were blown away by how beautiful, urban chic, and - despite being quite large - intimate it felt! The food was out of this world...not only was it beautiful in presentation (you won't find typical wedding food here!), but it was so delicious as well. And every aspect of the service was top-notch...from Julie and her team who worked with us leading up to the event to ensure that every detail was taken care of, to the all-star servers and bartenders on our wedding day who made sure our guests were never without a bite or a beverage! I often found myself thinking "this is to good to be true. these people are too wonderful, this space is too beautiful...are we really getting married here?!" Well it was all true, and we can't thank Second enough for making our day so incredible!
