Event Spaces

Explore our event space.

If the first rule of event planning is finding the venue with the perfect location, we’ve got good news for you. Your search is over. We’re located in Midtown Manhattan, just across the street from Penn Station. There isn’t a venue location in New York that can beat ours.

Great venue location and unmatched versatility.

While location may be the most important decision factor, versatility isn’t far behind. With two levels, our venue flexibility is hard to rival in Midtown New York.

The ground floor has direct access to both the street and the Hotel Pennsylvania lobby. The large and dramatic escalators to the second floor make a strong impression as to the significance of any event.

If you are ready to explore the space, reach out to us and we will be happy to schedule a site visit for you and your event staff.
