    Found this venue through a recommendation from a friend who had a bat mitzvah at this venue. It was a beautiful venue for a Sunday day wedding with a balcony and amazing views. Katherine is AMAZING to work with: helpful, professional, responsive, diligent and organized. From the moment we met her we knew we were in good hands. She answered all of our million questions patiently, and the prices for the ceremony/reception were very reasonable for NYC. The venue staff were so amazing, they took our supplies and had everything set up before we arrived, even the aspects we had every intention of having friends come and set up. The transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception was seamless thanks to the hardworking friendly staff. Everything went so smoothly and it was an absolute pleasure working with Upper Story by Charlie Palmer. The staff were so considerate and attentive to us on the day, we had a blast with our guests. The wedding day was the best day ever thanks in large part to Katherine and Upper Story!

    The entire staff and space at the Upper Story were wonderful. This was our first time using this space for our annual benefit and everyone raved about the venue, especially the outdoor space. Katherine was wonderful to work with, answered every question quickly.
    The staff the night of the event was accommodating and very professional.
    Thanks for a great evening!

    I am a wedding planner, and I had my daughter’s bat mitzvah at Upper Story in December 2016. Jessica Powers and her team went above and beyond what I typically experience when working with a venue. Throughout the planning process, Jessica answered every question I had almost immediately, and she was so open and flexible with both the use of the space, and the menu. The space is beautifully decorated, with a lot of light if your event is during the day, and pretty views of the East Side and the 59th Street Bridge. If your wedding is at night, the view of the City and bridge is spectacular. The food is top quality restaurant fare, and there are so many delicious choices that it was actually hard to make a decision about the menu! The chef is amazing, and she was open to customizing the menu. I was extremely impressed with the staff, the food and the execution of the whole event. Our friends kept commenting on how beautiful the space was. One friend said that her table was trying to come up with a reason for a party just so they could have it at Upper Story! I can’t recommend Upper Story enough! – Kimberly Pilson (The Wedding Sitter).
