    Upstairs at the Kimberly is a wonderful place to hold a cocktail style reception. It has sweeping views of the Chrysler Building, Midtown Manhattan and creates wonderful ambiance. We are very much looking forward to our upcoming nuptials. The event planning team has been extremely helpful every step of the way.

    Amazing service and gorgeous venue

    My wife and I had our wedding here in October. Upstairs at the Kimberly offers an incredible venue and view and a wide variety of options of food and drinks to choose from when it comes to selecting your wedding menu. Planning with them was stress free and the staff was very accommodating to our requests. We didn’t need to do anything to beautify the venue—all we did was hire a florist, and the rest of the space was lush and well-manicured on its own. If you’re looking for a venue for around 100 people with excellent food, drinks, and atmosphere, this is your best choice in Manhattan!

    I recently had my destination wedding on the rooftop here with 20 guests in total. It is a stunning venue that needs little to no added decoration. The fairy lights, chesterfield lounges and city skyline as a backdrop created the perfect mix of classic and modern. The event planner was extremely helpful and took care of all the small details. The staff were fantastic and the hotel in General was very hospitable. If you are looking for something timeless and simple then look no further.
