    Couldn't have imagined a more perfect venue for my wedding!

    I realize this review is a bit late, but I feel compelled to still write it because of the amazing experience we had with The Water Club. I first connected with Alyson at The Water Club in September of 2018 and booked my wedding for May of 2020. Our wedding was postponed not once, but twice due to COVID – as we tried moving it to May of 2021 but with the continued uncertainty, moved it again to October of 2021. Through it all Alyson was a phenomenal ally! From the moment we met I knew our wedding was in great hands. She is knowledgeable, thorough, supportive, and an all-around fabulous person! In March of 2020, there were so many unknowns but despite that, Alyson still came to us with viable options and scenarios for how we could proceed. Both times we postponed our wedding, the process was seamless, and we are so grateful for that. Alyson gave us peace of mind and made sure we knew that she and The Water Club was in this with us and would do whatever they could to help. She checked in regularly with updates and answered our mountain of questions as the circumstances of the pandemic continued to evolve. When it finally became clear that we could proceed with our wedding in October, Alyson and introduced us to Sonya – an absolute rockstar – to handle the final arrangements and help coordinate for the day of. These two ladies are a powerhouse team, they attended to anything and everything we could possibly want or need! From managing our vendors to coordinating vaccination verification to keeping track of everything (and I mean everything!) they made sure our day was the most special and memorable event! I loved having Sonya by my side on the day. She is diligent, funny, and ready for anything. The Water Club’s staff was incredible! The maître d' Diego was wonderful! One of my bridesmaids broke her ankle 2 weeks before the wedding and had to use a scooter and crutches to get around. Diego made sure she was taken care of, could easily get around, and had access to storage for her scooter and crutches. He was on top of everything! Many of our guests commented on what an awesome job he was doing throughout the wedding. And the food, THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS!! There wasn’t a single complaint, not even a slight grumble, about the food from any of our guests. Every dish from the hours de vours to the desserts was mind-blowing!! Our wedding was perfect and worth every second of the 3 years we had to wait to finally have it! The Water Club made that happen.

    Perfect NYC Venue

    I cannot say enough great things about the Water Club! The various rooms and spaces are so elegant and make for a really unique, and quintessential New York experience! Alyson made everything so easy and seamless, (we couldn't have done it without her!) and she gave great advice and help with everything from the menu, vendors, to the schedule and timeline which was a huge relief especially when you're just getting started and not sure of how everything fits together. Our guests were blown away and kept saying how much they loved the various rooms and, of course, the view! We can't recommend the Water Club enough!

    Best venue ever!

    Truly THE BEST EVER. If we could give more than five stars we would. My husband and I recently had our wedding at The Water Club on February 15, 2020 and it could not have been more perfect. We worked with Alyson, the director of events, to plan our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. Alyson worked with us from day 1 to plan the wedding of our dreams, from planning the specific type of ceremony/reception we wanted, to choosing the food, as well as all the other details for the day of the wedding. Alyson is also extremely knowledgeable about the entire wedding process - she takes care of absolutely everything and makes sure that the wedding day is perfect. (While weddings are not always easy to plan, Alyson really went above and beyond to make the planning process stress free and enjoyable.) Since our wedding was in February it was quite chilly outside, but TWC had the fireplace going and the venue was cozy, classy and also had that 'old New York' feel. Our guests have not yet stopped raving about the place itself, the delicious food and the exceptional staff (bartenders, bathroom attendants, waiters, etc. were professional, attentive, and incredibly nice). We feel so incredibly lucky to have had such a wonderful experience and we are so happy we chose TWC as our wedding venue! BEST NIGHT EVER!

    Love Jamie & Greg
