PRIVATE EVENT SPACEs FOR YOUR SPECIAL GATHERING

We now have our own three wonderful event venues after four decades of catering to all kinds of places: homes, offices, rented mansions, parks, theaters, Navy ships, yachts, clubs, synagogues, churches, and union halls. Many staff and clients have stayed with us for long periods of time. Every day we do our best, and every year we work to evolve. It's been a wonderful profession helping clients with their goals, dreams, traditions, celebrations, personalizations.

sizes

Your event could range from 15 to 200. Manhattan Penthouse caters from75 to 200. Alger House caters from 25 to 75, and new Sassy caters from 15 to 75. (See our link to Sister Venues for events for less than 75 guests.)

bar and bas mitzvahs

Manhattan Penthouse has been ideal for Mitzvah celebrations on both Saturday afternoons and nights, becuase the two main rooms work well for the Mitzvah sequence for roughly 125 to 150 guests including one-third children. While the adults are being served hors d'oeuvre and drinks in the Palladian Reception Room, the children have their own appetizers, bar, activities and entertainments in the Compass Ballroom.

We usually serve a sit-down dinner with wines to the adults in the Ballroom, and we usually have a more informal children's buffet, bar and seating on the south side of the Ballroom. Children love Manhattan Penthouse, a loft-like space with wonderful views.

Some Mitzvahs have been for less than 75, and Alger House has been perfect. Families love Alger House, one of our sister venues with the same fine foods, services, and value.

anniversaries AND BIRTHDAYS

Large Anniversary and Birthday Parties have often been for individuals and couples who have reached a very major milestone and wish to celebrate with their friends and relatives. The size has usually been 125 or more, which is so comfortable at Manhattan Penthouse.  We have been priviledged occasionally to cater an anniversary party for the parents of a bride for whom we catered her wedding. In fact we have enjoyed many instances of catering multiple parties for families: weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, brises, showers, rehearsal dinners. These events are usually accompanied by speeches, videos, albums, blown-up photos, bands, and creative decorations.

Of course some Anniversaries and Birthdays are for more intimate groups, and Alger House has been a stand-out venue for less than 75 guests.

Catering at large events of this nature have full sit-down dinner evenings, but smaller events of this nature have often been cocktail receptions with lots of passed hors d'oleuvre plus some fork-friendly food stations. So seating can range from tables of ten to having lots of high top and cocktail tables with possibly a reserved table for family.

rehearsal dinners

Rehearsal Dinners are a specialty of Alger House and Sassy, as they are usually less than 75 and often less than 40. Rehearsal Dinners start with a gathering time of open bar and some placed out appetizers and then move into a seated dinner with wines and menu choices that have been decided ahead of time. We have AV, wireless and music equipment at all our venues.

BRIDAL AND BABY SHOWERS

Showers can be very informal or very formal. They are usually smaller, often only twenty or thirty ladies who after gathering have prefered to sit at one beautifully dressed long table to exchange congratulatioins, toasts, and gifts. Or sometimes these showers are informal with appetizers placed out and and then gathering in a circle of chairs. Alger House is the perfect place for these, and, now, our new Sassy is also perfect. Prices are very reasonable at Alger House and even more reasonable at Sassy. Sassy should be remembered for really small parties as low as for only 15.

memorial services

Manhattan Penthouse and Alger House have both been great quiet, elegant, settings for Memorial Services, depending on the number of guests. These events have often taken place during the week during the day. There has been a similarity among the many Memorial Services we have catered. There is a gathering time of about an hour with drinks and placed out appetizers. Then there are testimonials by individuals with guests seated theater style and with a podium and microphone for each speaker. This phase lasts at least an hour. Finally the guests go back to the Reception Room for drinks and the placed out appetizers. Catering services are low key for this kind of event. Both Manhattan Penthouse and Alger House have a kind of atmosphere that has seemed perfect for this kind of celebration of a person's life. Because these events can take place at odd times not competing with important evenings, prices can be very reasonable, and even small such events can take place at Manhattan Penthouse.

retirements

Manhattan Penthouse and Alger House have been perfect settings for retirement parties, depending on the number of guests. These events have been sit-down dinners preceded by a cocktail reception and involving speeches. 

brises

Brises are relatively small events mainly for the family, and we have catered them at both Manhattan Penthouse and Alger House. They have often taken place on weekends early in the day, and this has resulted in the best rates. Sassy is available too now at the most reasonable prices.

graduations

Graduations from College, Medical School, Nursing School, and Engineering School have been our most usual graduations where a relatively young person and his family desire to celebrate the long row to hoe. They can be both dinners and cocktail receptions, and reasonable prices are important. Depending on the guest count, one of our three beautiful spaces could be the most appropriate.
