Manhattan Penthouse and Alger House
Manhattan Penthouse stands tall in the center of Manhattan on Fifth Avenue at 14th Street, boasting perhaps the best 360 degree views of any banquet facility anywhere. Its 8000 sq. ft. provide ample room for dining and dancing for 50 to 225 guests, while giant arched casement windows frame dramatic vistas of Manhattan real estate from Wall Street to Times Square and from river to river. At night, the Empire State Building and many other dramatic skyscrapers light up all around. Inside lies an amazing penthouse aerie, elegantly tailored and adorned with rich details, a model for trendy loft spaces, causing entering guests to exclaim, "I’d like to live here!" and Avenue Magazine to declare Manhattan Penthouse "the latest ’in’ space" at its grand opening. Outstanding features in the Reception Room, Ballroom, and Executive Lounge include a magnificent oak and stained glass bar, paneled window seats, tall ficus trees, mirrored band area, special lighting, Baldwin grand piano, custom stereo, the finest catering equipment, beautiful oak floors, and those giant windows framing panoramic Manhattan views.
Alger House, a large 1906 carriage house on a lovely lane in Greenwich Village off Sixth Avenue, was converted by a top 1970’s artist into a very creative venue, combining the characteristics of modern loft, artist’s atelier, and magnificent private ballroom. Alger House, featured on the front cover and an entire chapter of Rizzoli’s Lost and Found: Decorating with Unexpected Objects, is warmly decorated with fine furnishings, works of art, and architectural details, supporting a most magical atmosphere, eclectic but harmonious. This roomy, comfortable, and elegantly creative space is a favorite setting for weddings, corporate and family events for 25 to 80 persons. Alger House combines the finest cuisine and services in its very special interiors for an unforgettable event.
