Look no further -- this place is a gem! I only wish I could rate it 10 stars! We recently had our wedding at The Skylark and it was off the charts -- and well-exceeded our expectations. What a perfect venue and wonderful staff. From the very moment we met with Christine to explore the venue and options, we knew we had found the right place. The venue is stunning to begin with, evoking a very chic and sophisticated NY vibe -- the views are outrageous - in one direction a breathtaking view of the Empire State Building, in the other, the Hudson River...magnificent. The space has so many interesting components and was absolutely perfect for hosting both a ceremony and reception. Christine also gave some excellent recommendations for music & photography vendors -- the details all came together perfectly.Sent on 10/23/2014
Cocktail hour on the roof-deck was magical. The attention to detail, the quality of service -- the food...all spectacular. Charles was our event manager and he ensured that everything went off without a hitch. I can't say enough about how wonderful he was to work with -- the ultimate professional and the most expert master of timing and coordination. He and his staff provided impeccable service to us and to our guests. The food is out of this world -- our guests are still raving about the food and the service - and the venue. They want us to have the wedding all over again! In fact, we are already planning a 1 year anniversary dinner party in one of the intimate rooms in the space. We can't wait.
Hats off to the Skylark, Abigail K., Christine, Charles, & Jason. You made the most important day of our lives so very unforgettable.
