Looking for an Event Venue? Consider Loft 227, Smooth Sailing Celebrations, or 91 Horatio

New York City is a vibrant, exciting place to host any event. But your event can be even better with the right location. We highly recommend three different NY venues for your next event, party, or conference. Thomas Oliver’s Gourmet Catering & Events will bring the amazing food and quality service.

Our Top 3 Recommendations for New York City Events

Each of our recommended locations offers something unique and memorable. One is a well-known and happening high-tech arts space. Another company provides a variety of yachts and boating adventures for your next event. The third is a friendly, smaller location that works great for events like boutique weddings.
We are proud to have partnered with these Venue & Event Space Services. We’re sure you will find something to love about them.

Loft 227: Tech-Friendly Artistic Community Space

Loft 227 is a creative technology and arts-incubator in the heart of Manhattan. The venue has presented more than 500 live events in five years in support of theater, film, music, dance, and fine art.
Founded by producer, choreographer, and community activist Robin Sokoloff, the venue was started in part to create a “minority friendly and affordable space in New York City for artists and entrepreneurs.” Loft 227 is now a community hub that supports arts as well as political action.

Loft 227 has, in fact, become so popular and successful that they are looking for an even larger location so they can expand. In the meantime, they have a very attractive event space complete with movie screens, comfortable lounge seating, and multicolored lights to set just the right mood.

Smooth Sailing Celebrations: Fun and Sun on the Hudson River

Experience something extra special by chartering a yacht for your next wedding, party, or celebration. Cruise the Hudson River while enjoying the stunning New York City skyline. Smooth Sailing Celebrations offers both luxury yachts as well as casual yachts. In fact, the company has more than 45 Coast Guard-certified luxury yachts with a variety of options.

For example, the Cornucopia Majesty luxury yacht comes with a large ballroom with dining decks that overlook the dance floor. The Aqua Azul, named in part for the pretty blue lights that decorate the outside of the upper decks at night, offers an open-air covered rooftop with a dance floor. It also boasts a piano deck (complete with a baby grand piano).

91 Horatio: A More Intimate Space for Those Special Events

Designed for boutique weddings and other more intimate events, 91 Horatio can seat 20 to 200 guests in this quaint but contemporary event venue. Located in Greenwich Village, the space offers oak floors, high ceilings, and barrel-vaulted brick arches. With white walls, the location offers a chance for decorators to truly make the space original and memorable. Two main rooms are available.
91 Horatio gets excellent reviews on the wedding website “The Knot.” “The raw space, with its exposed brick, arched entryways, soaring ceilings, and gleaming hardwood floors, is, of course, spectacular,” wrote one reviewer.
