PRIVATE EVENT SPACE FOR YOUR SPECIAL GATHERING

For 46 years my company has catered every kind of party in every kind of place: homes, offices, rented mansions, parks, theaters, Navy ships, yachts, clubs, synagogues, churches, union halls, and the several venues that I have created over the years before finally building Manhattan Penthouse and its two sister venues, Alger House and Sassy.

It has been and is a wonderful profession helping clients maximize their dreams, figuring out the logistics and menus, and enjoying what our teams can do: chefs, sales, administrative, staffing, cleaning and set up. And constantly working on updating menus in accordance with evolving tastes. Staff stay with us a long time, and it's like family.

Now, in addition to catering around town, we concentrate on our three venues: Manhattan Penthouse for 100 to 200 guests, Alger House for 25 to 75 guests, and Sassy for 15 to 75 guests.

bar and bas mitzvahs

Most of the mitzvah events we have catered have been around 150 guests, including 50 children. Manhattan Penthouse with its two major rooms have been ideal. While adults are having a cocktail reception in the Palladian Room (Receptio Room), the children are involved in their special food and drink in the Compass Ballroom where they can participate in sports, music, dancing and other guided activities. 

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 and bar and seating on the south side of the Ballroom. Children love Manhattan Penthouse, a loft-like space with wonderful views.

Most of these events have been Saturday evening, but some have been early on Saturday afternoon, either following a nearby synague event or starting with the actual presentation by the boy.

Some Mitzvahs have been for less than 75, and Alger House has been perfect. Families love Alger House for smaller events. 

anniversaries

Anniversary parties have often been for couples who have reached a major milestone and wish to celebrate with their friends and relatives. The size has usually been over 125 guests, 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.

BIRTHDAYS

Birthday parties have been among the smaller parties we have catered, and they have taken place at Alger House, a comfortable and interesting setting for a birthday party. The catering is usually informal with a lot of placed out and passed hors d'oeuvre with cocktail tables and high tops. We have clients who call us every five years for their special birthday party.

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.  Alger House has been a perfect setting for these. Sometimes baby showers are informal with appetizers placed out and chairs in a circle. 

memorial services

Manhattan Penthouse and Alger House have been great 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 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.

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.

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.

other events

Book signings, Graduation Celebrations, Fashion Shows, and other events have taken place at Manhattan Penthouse or Alger House, depending on the size and the budget.
