    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.

    The Upstairs at the Kimberly Hotel is a perfect venue for both ceremony and cocktails! We had a very small wedding (15 adults/4 children) at the Upstairs on a Saturday evening in January. The wedding ceremony was held in the VIP Room; which is very private. Following the ceremony we had a light cocktail hour consisting of hors d'oeuvres and cocktails in the actual bar area. Besides being a beautiful space on the 31st floor of the Kimberly Hotel overlooking the Chrysler Building, the event coordinator was extremely professional and helpful, the wait staff very friendly, the Mediterranean bar delicious, and the drinks good. Everything went very smoothly; and I would recommend the space for a group function to anyone.
