I cannot sing my undying love for this venue loudly enough. The venue is absolutely stunning — we had a May wedding here and the balcony was open and perfect. Our guests absolutely loved the incredible view of the Hudson and the light breeze they got to enjoy in the terrace. Sunsets here truly are magnificent. What’s more, this is probably the most affordable/best value wedding venue in Manhattan. We were stunned by how reasonable the prices are here. We expect they are a little deflated because the entrance is not especially glamorous — you have to walk by the ice rink and its locker room to get here — but no one in our wedding seemed to mind and some of our guests thought it was pretty cool! But once you get inside the terrace, you literally cannot tell that there is an ice rink right next door. We had the absolute best experience working with Jennifer, the wedding coordinator at Chelsea Piers. Seriously, she is probably the best part about the venue. Not only did she seamlessly coordinate the setup of all of our vendors day-of, answer my incessant e-mails with detailed questions promptly and with a smile, but she also heroically tracked down the bakery I asked to provide cupcakes when half of the delivered cupcakes arrived overturned and completely ruined, single-handedly salvaging the cupcakes and securing new ones last-minute as replacement! She is terrifically reliable and I would not trust anyone else with my event. Last, Neuman’s Kitchen provides the catering and they are great. Several guests commented on how good the food was. It was so easy to set up a tasting and work with them without any of the hassle of coordinating an outside caterer. I have a few friends considering getting married in NYC and I have been trying to persuade all of them to use Sunset Terrace — I simply do not believe there is a better value in Manhattan!Sent on 06/01/2017

The Perfect Wedding Venue
unset Terrace was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception. From the moment we walked in for our initial venue tour we were sold, and we never ceased to be amazed through the entire process. Jennifer, our event coordinator, was incredible. She responded quickly to emails, hopped on the phone, and was always available if we wanted to stop by the venue to discuss details. She coordinated the catering, the table linens, the floor plans, the bar (including signature cocktails), EVERYTHING. We were able to make this wedding our own, and we are so grateful for that. The venue itself is phenomenal. Three walls are pure windows with views of the Hudson, and the main wall of windows are garage doors that open up onto the deck. We were fortunate to have a beautiful spring day, and the windows stayed open the entire night! The name of the venue is very appropriate, because the sunset DELIVERED. We timed our first dance with the sunset, and it made the moment even more magical. Getting to the venue is a little weird because you have to walk around the ice skating rink, but it is absolutely worth it - you walk into an oasis and completely forget where you just were. I seriously cannot say enough good things about Sunset Terrace. Load-in and load-out of our supplies were seamless, the decorations we provided were placed tastefully and thoughtfully, the ceremony was flipped to the reception in record time, and everything was just perfect. And while it wasn't the least expensive option that we considered, it was still within our budget, and was worth every single penny. Highly recommend!Sent on 06/09/2019

We chose Sunset Terrace as the venue for our Saturday evening wedding in July, and I honestly do not have enough good things to say about the venue and incredible staff at Chelsea Piers. We had the pleasure of working with Sherwin, who really helped us in planning and executing the vision for our day. He offered us incredibly valuable advice based on his many years of expertise that helped us plan a terrific event. On the day of, our guests could not stop gushing about how much they loved the gorgeous views overlooking the Hudson. We also had a wonderful experience with the caterer, Neuman's Kitchen, who gave us A+ treatment from the time of our tasting to the day of. The staff executed the day perfectly and many of our guests said the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! All in all, I could not recommend Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers enough!Sent on 07/29/2018
