Landmark Mansion/Museum Dazzling Ballroom
For events, please book through Landmark Mansion as Event Venue.
Some Enchanted Evening: Have your event, photo shoot, or film set in our 5-story landmarked mansion in the very heart of Greenwich Village just off 5th Avenue near Washington Square.
Step inside, and you will find yourself in 1800's New York City.
The First Floor: The First Floor consists of two main rooms, a stunning preserved 1850's Parlor with vintage appointments, and a Glass Gallery with a dazzling permanent exhibition of antique American Glass and Ceramics. The First Floor can be booked by itself for photo and film shoots or for events hosting smaller groups. The First Floor can also be booked as additional space added to our Second Floor's Ballroom, Formal Dining Room, Kitchen, and Restroom. The Parlor is 25 feet x 14 feet. The Glass Gallery is 20 feet x15 feet.
The Second Floor: Our dazzling Ballroom, on the Second Floor of our world-renowned Art Gallery, will take your breath away. The Ballroom is 60 feet x 15 feet with a Baroque ceiling that's 18 feet high. Also on the Second Floor is the Formal-But-Fun Dining Room that is sheer perfection for your buffet service. The Dining Room is 30 feet x 16 feet.
The Kitchen: Also on the Second Floor is our spacious kitchen that is inconspicuous but immediately accessible from both the Dining Room and the Ballroom. Refrigerate, freeze, cook and prepare catered foods. The kitchen has a small terrace. Leave the terrace door open for a constant flow of fresh air. A restroom is also available on the Second Floor.
On the walls of the Ballroom and the Dining Room is a permanent exhibition of the beloved art of artist Al Hirschfeld. In our experience, Hirschfeld's art provides a terrific conversation-starter among your honored guests.
In the Ballroom, a grand piano awaits your guests. And should you desire it, we have just the perfect cabaret pianist to play for you. The Ballroom is lighted by a one-of-a-kind Phantom of the Opera Chandelier. There is other lighting, including a skylight that bathes the Ballroom in a natural ever-changing Aurora borealis. Looking through our skylight, you will actually see a tree as gorgeous as it is gigantic—and it's been thriving here since the time that the Indians owned this land! Looking through our enormous Zinced-glass Arched Window (pre-dates "leaded" glass), you'll have an unblocked panoramic view of the flourishing gardens and trees of this historic Greenwich Village neighborhood. And if you're lucky enough to find yourself here when it snows, you will feel like you're inside a snow globe, but nice and warm! And what is down the spiral staircase?
The Parlor is 25 feet x 14 feet. The Glass Gallery is 20 feet x15 feet. And what about the Fourth Floor? The Fourth Floor is a very large Outside Deck, 20 feet x 20 feet. This Deck has a stunning surround that must be seen to be believed. Step onto the Deck and hear yourself say, "I can't believe I'm in New York City!" The Deck can be booked by itself for photo and film shoots or for events hosting about 30 guests. The Deck can also be booked as an additional space added to the gorgeous First and Second Floor spaces.
