CORPORATE receptions and dinners, holiday and post holiday parties, presentations, workshops, conferences, awards, and anniversaries

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.


CHOOSE A BEAUTIFUL VENUE WITH TOP CATERING NEXT TO UNION SQUARE TRANSPORTATION HUB AND HOTELS!  We've created the perfect atmosphere for charity and non-profit organizations to entertain their donors with pride in our spacious penthouse aerie surrounded by iconic Manhattan real estate in every direction.  Budgets are important for non-profits, and we at Manhattan Penthouse know how to maximize them and provide quality and generous cuisine for important occasions.  MONDAYS AND TUESDAYS are best for value.

one event at a time

Our 8000 square foot penthouse is yours for the evening or the day.  We look out in every direction, and inside we are handsome.  One doesn't feel limited by walls, because our walls are mostly huge arched shining Palladian windows with views stretching out in every direction.
