Tell us about your venue. How long have you been holding weddings and how many weddings do you hold per year?  

Originally constructed between 1922 and 1924 as The Greenwich Savings Bank, the building currently known and admired as Gotham Hall was built to serve as the bank’s headquarters with a prominent midtown address. Featuring an architectural design by York and Sawyer, the intersection of 36th Street and 6th Avenue was met with one of the most impressive spaces Manhattan has ever seen. The interior boasts Corinthian columns, granite walls, marble flooring, inscriptions and antique attributes symbolizing wisdom and commerce, and a domed ceiling with a 3,000 square foot stained glass skylight. Surviving decades and generations in American history, by 2002 this historical landmark transitioned into the most prestigious place to host a sophisticated affair.

Why should a couple consider your venue over other venues? 

From elegant social events or corporate conclaves to nonprofit galas, you and your guests will appreciate the uncompromising attention to detail and extraordinary personal service that defines Gotham Hall events. Whether grand celebration or intimate gathering, our event planners will work with you to ensure your occasion is distinctive and remarkable. Planning to execution, we will work with you to tailor all aspects of an event to your needs and style.

Because we host just one event at a time, you are assured yours will be private, secure and will run smoothly from start to finish. You can rely on our efficient event management team and our exclusive recommended vendors to customize an event that will satisfy even the most discerning tastes.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by an architectural masterpiece, one landmarked by New York City. Our circa 1924 venue is certain to make a lasting impression. As you pass through our filigree brass doors and step onto the inlaid marble floor, you will be awestruck by your surroundings.

Imagine your special occasion in such an extraordinary setting. Visualize sipping Champagne on our Mezzanine as you overlook your guests in our spectacular ballroom. Should you so desire, we can simultaneously host a smaller soiree in one of two oak-paneled rooms, complete with fireplaces and private restrooms.

As you step into the heart of Gotham Hall, be prepared to enter a room built for royalty. You will be captivated by the remarkable presence this room commands as you are immersed in the lavish setting.
