Manhattan Penthouse on 5th Avenue is a beautiful, elegant, airy space for wedding ceremonies and receptions on Fifth Avenue just off Union Square hub. We offer exclusive use of the entire 8000 square foot penthouse floor. Our foods are superior, and our menu is large and eclectic. Our walls are mainly windows, – giant Palladian windows with sweeping views of iconic real estate giving our space a feeling of endless dimensions. How great to be surrounded by family and friends, with the city wrapped around you! How great to be served cuisine that surprises many with its elegance and generosity!
We’re most proud that many corporations repeat for their annual or seasonal event. (Try January for your holiday event!) Our two very finished rooms, adorned with rich details and surrounded by iconic Manhattan real estate, work well together. We have the whole 8,000 square foot penthouse floor, and that’s rare in Manhattan. See the views you’ve missed through our twelve foot diameter polished steel Palladian windows. Easy to get to, just a block from a dozen subways. In this splendid setting in lower midtown just west of Union Square we offer upscale food and services that get raves in the media. And our catering executives — Monika, Jeno and Sam — know how to maximize your goals.
We’ve been catering since 1973, but Manhattan Penthouse is our ultimate achievement when we could design both a rich, extraordinary environment and a striking, eclectic menu together. We excell in cocktail receptions with fine, abundant hors d’oeuvre; cocktail buffets with food-stations; and sit-down dinners where every presented plate is like dinner for two at a top restaurant. Our style is elegant, but not precious. We concentrate on taste. We prepare classic favorites as well as new creations. Maximizing value is our constant aim.
The Manhattan Penthouse event space has its own unique differences from other fine venues in Manhattan. Although we are only one of the very top venues around town, we hope you will choose us next time you are planning an event for 75 to 275 persons. We think you will be into a very pleasant surprise.
