About The Altman Building

The Altman Building is a historic landmark and a premiere venue in the heart of Chelsea. Established in 1896 as the carriage house for the B. Altman Department store, The Altman Building is now a private versatile event venue emanating old world charm and boasting 14,000 square feet over two floors.

Our original, double hinged mahogany French doors, connect directly to the street to allow for easy ground-level load-in and a breathtaking entrance for guests. Upon entering the space, clients are greeted with exposed vaulted brick ceilings, natural oak hardwood floors, and floor to ceiling bay windows that provide the space with a cascade of natural light.


The unparalleled ambiance of The Altman Building allows transformation to be as limitless as your imagination. Enjoy the convenience and luxury of having our entire space yours for the day. Our beautiful first floor is virtually column free, allowing for any ceremony set up of your choice. After ceremony, guests are escorted downstairs for a cocktail hour while the main floor gets transformed into your reception space. Ideal wedding capacity for The Altman Building is 225 for a wedding with a ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We also specialize in up to 550 person “cocktail-style” wedding receptions.

The Altman Building is an elegant, memorable and exciting venue to host your special day. The exceptional staff works with the building’s striking architectural details to impeccably transform The Altman Building into the romantic venue you’ve always dreamed of. With the ability to cater to any sized guest list, you can be surrounded by the love of all your family and friends. Dine, dance and cheers to a uniquely beautiful happily-ever-after.

    This was a great venue. Their management went the extra mile in helping us get everything set up the way that we wanted it. I'm very happy with how everything turned out.
