My husband and I cannot say enough great things about the 3 West Club. From our initial walk through of the space, to the big day, everything ran incredibly smoothly. Lauren worked with us every step of the way to make sure our vision came to life. We had a surprise wedding where our guests were under the impression they were coming for an engagement party, Lauren and her team helped execute our vision flawlessly. The various rooms at 3 West made it the perfect location. Our guests arrived and went up to the 9th floor for cocktails (and an INCREDIBLE view) before coming down to the 2nd floor ballroom for more food, drinks, dancing and SURPRISE, a wedding ceremony. It was an absolute blast, and would not have been possible without the attention to detail Lauren and her staff put into the big day. Throughout the day everyone kept commenting on how beautiful the venue was, and how delicious the food was. Everything went off better than planned, the staff couldn't have been more professional and Lauren was truly phenomenal in working with us from start to finish, handling last minute changes and requests beautifully. Furthermore, the location is great! My husband and I did a first look a couple hours before guests arrived, and were able to snap several great shots around 3 West Club, St. Patrick's and Rock Center. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with this venue, and highly recommend it to any future brides!
We loved 3 West Club and had a wonderful wedding experience from start to finish. Lauren the social catering manager is a delight to work with in helping to plan and organize the vision of your special day. She is very good about answering questions or concerns promptly. The Chef Gary and his team prepare a wonderful variety of food and everything is cooked to perfection. Our wedding guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food was with top notch service. If you are looking for an intimate, cozy wedding venue that captures the charm and feel of old New York 3 West Club is the Place!!
Lauren did great with the planning and the maitre d' was outstanding.
We chose 3 West Club for our wedding venue for its vintage décor and chandeliers. The Club also provides lodging accommodations for your guests at a discounted rate. Our wedding coordinator was Lauren. She was very nice and interested in all the details of our wedding. She asked all the questions necessary to make our day exactly as we imagined it. She gave us many recommendations as she has a lot of experience. Lauren was extremely responsive through email or phone. She coordinated our food tasting and was able to get us in earlier as there was a snow storm that day. The chef and all servers were incredibly attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious. We felt extremely confident about our food selection and service. Lauren handled all day-of-the-wedding details for me. I took Lauren’s advice to take the Junior Suite to be able to get ready with my bridesmaids and to have more privacy (original plan was using the Lincoln Room). This was the best decision because we the room was spacious, and I took beautiful pictures with my bridal party. We celebrated our wedding on May 5th, 2018. The ceremony and cocktail hour were held in the Solarium. We chose the Pasta station, and everyone loved it. The service was outstanding. The Ceremony went smooth. The food was served on time and it was delicious. We had the Baked Purse, Branzino/NY Steak and the duo of sorbets. Everyone was amazed by the quality of the service and taste of the food. After the food service, we had dancing all night. Our guests still talk about our wedding 2 weeks after the event. They keep telling us how much they like the venue for its’ vintage décor and the outstanding service that 3 West Club provide. We are still in awe and daydreaming about our special day.
My husband and I would recommend 3 west club for your wedding if you're looking for an elegant, unique, and classic NYC wedding that is also affordable. 3WC offers the true NYC experience with a lot of personalization and great service. We used the lounge for cocktail hour and grand ballroom for the reception at our September 2017 wedding. The food from cocktail hour through the 4 courses of dinner was amazing. Our guests raved about the food during the wedding and after. We were quite sure that the food would be great based on reviews and then after going to our tastings to select the menu a few months before. During the early planning stages we knew our top 3 priorities were food/drinks, music, and guest/our experience. Our experience was great with the 3WC. Ryan Furio the sales manager is great at his job, organized, and prompt to respond with any questions or concerns. We are both busy, working people and the experience of wedding planning was made easier by Ryan from start to finish as he's experienced and eliminates a lot of the fuss that can go along with wedding planning. He worked with us and was able to personalize aspects of the wedding. For example, our ceremony was nearby and there was 1.5 hours between that and the cocktail hour. He set up a space with apple cider to hold guests before the official start of the wedding. He also worked with us to get the menu just the way we envisioned it (raw bar, certain brands of alcohol, an extra dinner course, a contact with a cake baker). During the evening, Ryan’s team was well organized and executed the setup and service flawlessly. The ballroom was able to hold a 6 piece band comfortably. Overall, our experience and the guests' experience were superb and we thank Ryan and his team for truly being good to work with and delivering on a great final product, our wedding!
The perfect venue for our art deco, classic New York style wedding. A native New Yorker, my British husband and all of our international guests (from 9 countries!) were WOWED by the beauty and elegance of the 3 West Club. The venue is both impressive and intimate, and the many rooms you can use add variety and flexibility for use. The views from the terrace overlooking St Patrick's and Radio City Music Hall are iconic, and gave the wow factor and picture postcard backdrop to our wedding - impressing even my family from New York who were seeing the city from a different perspective.
The location is also perfect for getting amazing pre- and post-ceremony shots, with its proximity to Rock Centre, Top of the Rock, Radio City, 5th Avenue and Central Park. The classic New York and quintessential styling provide many opportunities for interior shots as well, with the views from the terrace being especially photogenic.
The many rooms you can use for each part of the day also offered great flexibility and variety for the day, and we made great use of all of them, having welcome cocktails in the lounge, the ceremony in the Grand Salon, the cocktail party in the Solarium and Terrace, and the reception in the Grand Ballroom With their high ceilings and crystal chandeliers, it was a beautifully timeless place for our special day. It was also spacious enough for our 110 guests, 8 piece band and photo booth.
Ryan was incredible throughout, and made planning every detail easy and was the picture of patience with my very detailed plans. All of this was made even more impressive for being pulled off with an ocean between us! The feedback on the day and since has been phenomenal, about everything from the location, the venue and especially the food which was delicious and plentiful. They also catered well for our vegetarian guests, especially important as my new mother-in-law does not eat meat and she was very pleased with her meal.
All in all, the day was perfect!
My husband and I got married here on 7/1/17. We could not have found a better venue for what we had in mind, as far as size (we had a little under 100 guests) and vibe (classic, retro, intimate).
From the very beginning (initial venue tour) to the very end (last minute chaos) of our wedding planning, Ryan the venue manager was such a pleasure to work with. On the day of, the staff was very attentive, making sure that everything was just right. Our outside vendors were also very impressed with how accommodating and flexible they were, making their jobs much easier that day.
-Hubs and I wanted an outdoor wedding but didn't know what the weather would bring. The solarium terrace was the perfect indoor/outdoor compromise. This worked out well for us.
-Food was excellent. We had a lot of compliments from the guests about the food!
-Everyone here was wonderful to work with, and they did their best to fulfill any special requests (within reason, of course)
-A TON of great spots inside the venue for wedding photos. Our photographer came up with a lot of cool ideas with the lighting, windowpanes, chandeliers, etc. Great detail in this very well-maintained space.
-The venue has a traditional, classic vibe without being a "wedding factory" if you know what I mean.
Cons: can't think of any...except, you can't have a ginormous wedding here. Definitely not the kind of place you want to host 300 guests! Which is not what we wanted anyway.
Husband and I have no regrets with our choice, only great memories. Thank you so much to Ryan and the 3 West Club team for making our day so memorable!!
As everyone knows being a bride can be stressful time , however I must tell you that I could not of been happier with the entire team at the 3 West Club.
I remember the day my fiance and I went to view the club and meet Ryan Furio for the first time. The warmth and help from Ryan had us book immediately and i can tell you that Ryan and his team were amazing all the way through from beginning to end of the ceremony.
I would highly recommend The 3 West club for any venue :)
We cannot say enough nice things about this venue! When we originally went to tour it we were working with Veronica (who was great) but after she left we were then dealing with Hina who acclimated herself so fast that I felt like we were always working with her. Everyone we came across was responsive and helpful. The club is beautiful and you feel that you have stepped back in time to Old New York. Our guests were blown away by the different rooms. decor and food (seriously the food is so good, I'm still thinking about the mini lamb chops!). Also, for being in the heart of mid-town with views that overlook St Pat's this place is a steal! Your money is well spent here.
Sarah, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you! We are delighted to hear you and your guests enjoyed your special day and stay here at 3 West! Thank you for all your kinds words! We really really appreciate it! Wishing you all the very best, always!
Service: Only if all people in the service sector could be as professional as Veronica and staff at the 3 West Club. From the very beginning Veronica was insightful, flexible, and very honest. She all but removed all of stress of planning a wedding and coordinated every aspect of our big day and helped with some of our DIY setups. I cannot say enough about the wait staff during the reception. They made our guests feel as though they were dining in a 5 star restaurant.
Bartender service was also very good. The one wish would be to offer a little more post reception support and coordination.
The 3 West Club can be characterized by large spaces in a historic New York building that says style, elegance, and sophistication from the moment you walk in the door. With the use of 5 to 6 different rooms throughout the building we enjoyed the authenticity of each and our guests loved the Chandeliers in the separate Ceremony and Reception spaces. Best of all the wall of windows and the views from the 9th floor Solarium was definitely the most used background for selfies and photos during the cocktail hour.
Quality: Given the many benefits of the club, We expected a cost 2x what we paid for a venue of this quality. The power rooms, the table and chairs, and of course the quality of service were above and beyond. Of course we understand that feeding 70+ people at once is not easy for anyone and most reports suggested that the food during the cocktail hour and reception was good for most but not 4 star quality level for all.
Value: In New York City, there may not be better value in the city. I would say that The 3 West Club is hidden gem. Our guests raved about their overall experience, they loved the classic style, the service, and the location in the heart of the city. The ability to have use of so many spaces each with their own unique qualities and styling.
Thank You 3 West Club
My fiance and I just had our ceremony and reception at the 3 West Club, and I cannot believe the compliments we have received! It was as close to a perfect day as I could have imagined. We had a very unique wedding -- only about 35 guests, and many were traveling from other states or countries to get there. Veronica, our event manager, was as accommodating as possible, allowing us to have a morning ceremony and daytime reception and using multiple rooms in the venue. We got married in the Lincoln Room, which was so beautiful; I couldn't believe it when I walked down the aisle! (The staff also provided coffee, tea, and water to our guests pre-ceremony.) We then had a cocktail half-hour and our dinner on the ninth floor Solarium. The weather was beautiful, so most of our guests spent much of the afternoon on the terrace. Everyone was blown away by the view! Service and the food were both fantastic -- probably the best food I've ever had at a wedding. After dinner, we went downstairs to the Lounge for wedding cake and Viennese table (which Veronica threw in for us since we weren't interested in having stations during our cocktail hour). Having the different portions of the wedding in different rooms really helped break up the reception since we didn't do dancing or have a dj. (We did, however, have a pianist during the dessert hour, and it was really wonderful.) When we got settled into our hotel room later that night, I had so many messages waiting for me, telling me it was one of, if not the, best weddings anyone has ever been to. My husband and I could not have been happier with our wedding day, and that is largely because of the incredible staff and space at 3 West.
K & L! I'm so happy to hear that you and your guests enjoyed themselves so much! It was a BEAUTIFUL day and everyone was so happy! You certainly took advantage of all of our unique spaces- and I had fun planning ti with you! Congrats! Veronica
My wife and I were recently married and had our reception at the 3 West Club. First of all, our experience with the catering manager at the club (Veronica) was wonderful. She was extremely responsive to all of our various phone calls and emails (there were a lot!), was well organized, and did an excellent job of customizing our wedding package to suit our particular tastes. This even included "tweaking" the open bar offerings to have some craft beers available (instead of the usual Bud/Bud Lite). The venue itself was wonderful. We had our cocktail hour in the lounge, which is basically a giant living room. It was a beautiful, intimate space that also worked very well to showcase our Chinese tea ceremony. Since my wife had to change into her Chinese dress for the tea ceremony, she was graciously allowed the use of the library as a personal changing room. This was a very nice touch and greatly helped the logistics of our reception itinerary. Our reception was held in the grand ballroom, which had ample space for our guests (~95 total) and our 5-piece band. The food was one of the highlights of the whole affair. When my wife and I went to taste the food and choose which items would be offered at the reception, we were stunned by the quality of the food. Naturally, we thought that there was no way the quality of the food would be as good when they were serving 95 people on the actual day of our wedding, but we were pleasantly surprised - the food was equally superb on our wedding day. As a matter of fact, all of our guests raved about the food, and many of them said that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding! The wait staff at the reception was also very courteous and attentive to both our guests and to my wife and I. The price of the wedding packages are excellent, particularly when you consider the great service and amazing food quality. All in all, Veronica and the 3 West Club made our wedding reception a *huge* success. Highly recommended!
3 West Club is truly a private club, and not a wedding factory. We had our ceremony in the Grand Salon where there are chandeliers for days. Our cocktail hour was held in the Solarium where our guests were able to mingle both inside and outside for cocktails and small bites. I must note…there was even drizzle outside this night and the staff rolled out the overhang (which was adorable and did not disrupt the view) and promptly rolled it back in once the drizzle cleared.
Our reception was held in the Grand Ballroom and the name only begins to do justice for this room. The chandeliers are to die for and our DJ was seated on the balcony overlooking the room which everyone seemed to think was really awesome. Walking into our reception you were given a full view of a beautifully lit / decorated room without the obstruction of a DJ or band front and center.
The service at the club was unprecedented. Our coordinator Veronica was incredible. She always answered my emails within an hour or two and was a key point person for all our planning. She not only knew the layout of what needed to happen at the club, but she was an amazing resource for all my general wedding questions as well….trust me there were a lot of questions. She was always honest and reasonable with us – she 100% understands the industry and did everything she could to guide us in the right direction.
The food was DIVINE. I must make a BIG point and say that my mother and I both have severe food allergies. I am celiac, my mother is also celiac with allergies to wines and vinegars and we had a small boy at the wedding with a nut allergy. The chef attended our tasting and immediately offered creative solutions to some of the things we liked on the menu. He even suggested things that were not on the menu that were later added to our cocktail hour. Everyone with an allergy was noted on a seating chart and we didn’t even have to remind anyone of the allergy. The food was perfect and served without incident.
We held my daughter's wedding at 3 West Club on October 4, 2013. If you are looking for a beautiful, elegant, reasonably priced venue...this is the place. I cannot sing the praises of 3 West Club high enough. From the first meeting to the last note from the DJ at the reception, 3 West Club was perfect. They accommodated our every wish, Veronica was amazing, and our guests are still talking about the fresh seafood bar at cocktail hour. My daughter wanted an old style Manhattan wedding... 3 West Club delivered to perfection.
We could not have been happier with our wedding. 3 West Club is an amazing venue--elegant and ideally located for the pleasure of your out-of-town guests. The staff were very professional and went out of their way to make everything wonderful for us.
This is a great venue! We whole-heartedly recommend it. Great Midtown location, pretty good prices, great food and beautiful spaces. We had our whole wedding here in the Grand Salon, Solarium and Ballroom. We checked out two other similarly-priced venues in Manhattan, and we are really glad we picked this one. One of the major reasons for this is Veronica (we worked with Kristina earlier in the process, who is also great). Veronica made everything so easy and seamless for us. She was very responsive and understanding of my million (dumb) questions, and took care of all the small details, like putting out our place cards, menus, etc. as well as coordinating with our vendors. She is absolutely fantastic and was super on top of things the day-of as well, and even got our ceremony started on-time!
As I said, the spaces are all beautiful. We were especially excited to use the terrace during the cocktail hour. It was hotter and more humid than expected, but that's the risk with outdoor spaces. I did have to ask them to crank the A/C several times because we were all dancing and partying so hard and sweating like maniacs. Everyone raved about the food all night. The bar was flowing. It was great.
Side note on the guest rooms: having this available was a big plus to us when booking, but we didn't check them out til later. The rooms are old and dated, and this is not a full-service hotel, so the restaurant is closed on weekends and there's no bar or lobby to hang out in. They're clear about this, but we weren't paying close attention I suppose. We had our guests stay at the Omni Berkshire two blocks away. We still would have booked 3 West Club even if we knew what the guestrooms were like in advance, but it's just something to keep in mind.
Loved everything. Kristina was perfect, patient, and helpful. I always got a response from her within 24 hours which was incredible considering she was planning her own wedding during my process. I even had a dress mishap on the day of which she fixed in no time.
I got married in December so the venue was decorated for x-mas which I loved (part of the reason why I wanted a winter wedding). I could not have asked for a better location being a arms reach from Rockefeller center. Considering where it was located, I was surprised to find this within budget but it was very reasonable.
I unfortunately did not eat at my wedding, but all of my guests said it was delicious -- we had a buffet style reception which I recommend bc you get more for your money and seem to please more guests. The sushi in particular was a favorite.
I only had 75 people at my wedding and we used the ballroom for the reception (the biggest room). We didn't want a big dance space so it worked perfectly, but I would say that if you're planning to have a wedding upwards of 100+ guests the space may feel a bit cramped.
Kristina and the whole team at the 3 West Club made my wedding day simply amazing! We made full use of the club and were able to have family and friends stay there, used the location to get ready in, had the ceremony and reception at the club, and even hosted an after wedding brunch the next day. Not only was the club accommodating, but the price was so reasonable. The food and service was fantastic and during the wedding, the waitstaff treated me like I was their own daughter, being so caring and wonderful! The decor of the venue was beautiful and gave us a great "Old Manhattan" feel. Our guests were delighted with the food and the cocktails. We had 120 guests and we fit perfectly in the ballroom with the cocktail hour in the lounge. Without hesitation, I would recommend this venue to any bride. Thank you to Kristina, Sigfry, and the rest of the 3 West Club staff for everything! Also, I forgot to mention that our wedding was a week and a half after hurricane Sandy. Given the devastation in NY, it did not stop the club from providing us with the wedding of our dreams!
This was the perfect gem of a location in Midtown NYC for our fall wedding. Kristina was absolutely perfect to work with and managed the entire event wonderfully. We loved everything about our wedding at 3 West and really had the easiest process from start to finish in planning the wedding. We felt so lucky to have found this location and could not have pictured a better place to have our wedding. Everyone on the staff was great and made the entire day fantastic. And as an aside, the food was absolutely AMAZING. We received tons of compliments in the days and weeks after our wedding about how great the food was. We had zero complaints or issues with the 3 West Club. We highly recommend this venue!
We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at 3 West Club with about 60 guests, many of whom came from out of town, so having rooms available for them in such a central location was a huge bonus. We were looking for an elegant space with enough room to dance. We had cocktails in the Solarium and everyone raved about the view, then the dinner dance in the Grand Salon, which was perfect both in size and ambience. Everything went flawlessly. Kristina was a treasure, and the serving staff was top-notch. The food was fine dining quality from start to finish. After having been through the "perfect wedding" hoopla the first time around, I wanted an easy party that I could relax and enjoy with my loved ones, and this was truly a night to remember. I recommend attending the open house; we used the florist and the bakery we found there and they were both excellent. We hired our own DJ, photographer, and table linens but I had no worries because Kristina coordinated everything. If I could do my wedding all over again, I would have it here. It was a superb experience.
Perfect size for our guest count and beautiful spaces with amazing view of St. Patrick's Cathedral.
My husband and I could not have been happier with our experience at the 3 West Club. We had our cocktail hour in the solarium, and our guests were awed by the views of Manhattan, and the amazing h'ors d'oevres. Our 4-course dinner in the ballroom was spectacular! Many of our guests said they were so full from the amazing food, they couldn't get up and dance. We took this as a big compliment. :) Kristina, our coordinator, was lovely and so professional to work with. We enjoyed every bit of the planning process with her, and were tickled with the final results.
Amazing! Kristina and Amanda were a blessing. Kristina helped make our day perfect for our guests. The food was amazing, people still rave about it and we were married a year ago. We want to go back every year on our anniversary and repeat the menu because it was so awesome. We had around 120 guests and it went perfectly. We had our cocktail hour on the solarium and reception in the grand ballroom. Couldn't be happier, if you can book, do it!
Some pictures from our day. :)
The 3 West Club was truly a remarkable place to hold our wedding reception. From start to finish the service has been exceptional. Amanda the director of catering was absolutely AMAZING! She always responded to us quickly and catered to all of our requests.
Leading up to the wedding the staff was very accomodating.
The decor is classic and timeless. We were blown away with how flawless the ballroom was set up.
The wait staff was delightful and the food was outstanding. We were constantly stopped by our guests to just rave about how great the food is!
We would ABSOLUTELY recommend this venue to anyone with a group of 100-120 guests. It is the perfect setting and in this ecomony reasonably priced!
We looked at close to a dozen wedding venues in Manhattan and along the Hudson before choosing 3 West (the last place we looked at). What really set it apart right from the beginning was the location, space, and value, but what I came to appreciate even more as the wedding planning went on was the stellar service delivered by Ryan Furio, the sales manager. For us, the location was a no-brainer. I wanted to do our first look in Central Park, and we had many friends coming in for the day on MetroNorth, so the fact that this was within walking distance of the Park and Grand Central made it ideal (not to mention photo ops with St. Patrick's Cathedral and Rockefeller Center).
Another unique element about 3 West was the many beautiful spaces contained within the same building. We had our ceremony on-site, so we were able to fully utilize the various rooms in the club for each part of the wedding day - Solarium for the invitation, the Grand Salon for the ceremony, the Lounge for cocktail hour and the Grand Ballroom for reception dinner. Guests couldn't stop telling me how gorgeous and luxurious the venue was, and how delicious the food was. Some of them said they were full after the cocktail hour, but had to make room for the amazing entrees and Viennese dessert table. I don't think it's possible to find better value in all of Manhattan.
Last but not least, Ryan really made this experience unforgettable. He was super accommodating when we had to look at the venue multiple times before committing because my husband couldn't come the first time with me. When I wasn't entirely happy with the suggested floor plan, Ryan not only took the trouble to draw up an alternative plan for me, but even set up the tables so I could preview the new floor plan in person. His dedication and patience made working with him completely effortless.
Wedding details: May 2017, 130 guests, DJ, Photobooth
