Imagine celebrating at the one of the most magical locations in the world. Plan your wedding at The Loeb Boathouse Central Park and create one-of-a-kind moments and memories in one of New York City's most iconic venues.
A haven for romantics and nature lovers, this understated icon offers a rare tranquility within the ever-eclectic energy that defines Manhattan.
True to its name — rowboats drift about the adjacent lake, as they have for over 150 years.
Whether celebrating a special anniversary, meeting an old friend for lunch or enjoying a little spontaneous refreshment—The Loeb Boathouse offers one-of-a-kind choices to satisfy all of your senses.
Designed to beautifully coexist with its natural surroundings, The Loeb Boathouse is the only Manhattan venue right on a lake—allowing you to host your wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or corporate event in spectacular fashion.
While you’re here, why not join a 150-year-old tradition and explore the lake in a rented rowboat. Better yet, take a ride in an authentic Venetian gondola. With any luck, your gondolier might even break into song.
Also, listen for the calls of many indigenous birds, as The Loeb Boathouse is a haven for avid birdwatchers. Proof can be found in the official “Bird Register,” an unpretentious 2-inch loose-leaf notebook where observations are recorded.
And finally, don’t forget to look for butterflies. To date, twenty-six species have been noted!

Hosting our reception at the Boathouse was one of the best decisions we made! From the moment we toured the Lake Room and the lakeside patio, we knew it was the place for us! It is truly an iconic, unique venue within the heart of Central Park and Manhattan. The Boathouse was recently repainted and the floors were redone, and it’s never looked better! The views of the lake, Central Park’s lush greenery, and the skyline is one not to be missed! Your guests will be in awe of the surroundings. We had the pleasure of meeting both Peter and James and ultimately used Peter for our wedding planning process. Peter knows his stuff – he’s on top of everything (tastings, layouts, etc.). He had also worked with the majority of our vendors before so coordination between the vendors and venue was easy! Our guests raved about how amazing the passed hors d’oeuvres, appetizer, salad, and entrée were (thanks to the wonderful chef Ramzi)! Harold, the maître d, was on top of the timeline and coordinated the entire evening with ease. Every single thing about our cocktail hour and reception was perfect. I wouldn’t have changed a single detail. I can’t thank Peter, James, Ramzi and Harold enough for their hard work. It was truly the best night of our lives. Thank you!!!

Choosing to have our wedding at The Central Park Boathouse was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. The staff was just SO incredibly lovely and professional on the day of the event. Absolutely every single detail went exactly as we discussed, from our signature drinks, to the menu, to the signs I brought in to be placed in certain areas of the room. The staff even ran after guests the night of the wedding to give them favors that were left behind. James, our event coordinator, could not have been more helpful and kind. He took the time to get to know my husband and me and made us feel like our wedding was important to them. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, as was 100% of the staff that was there on our wedding day. The maitre d was outstanding - everything the day of went off without a hitch. We could not be more grateful to James and the boathouse for giving us our dream wedding. It was flawless, and we highly highly recommend.

Dream come true! This venue was out of this world. The food, setting, and staff were fantastic to work with and made our wedding day unforgettable. We got married on a Friday in May, and the weather could not have been better. Cocktail hour outside was heavenly and the patio is gorgeous at night. Working with James was so easy, he was always on top of everything and very willing to work with us to make sure our day was exactly the way we wanted it. The food was absolutely delicious. Our guests are still making comments to us on how fantastic everything was. We will absolutely be going back year after year for our anniversary!
