As a professional New York Event Planner, you know that the perfect event begins with picking the right venue. Sure, it needs to be the right size, have the needed amenities, and create the right atmosphere. However, if you are hosting NYC events, expectations and standards are higher. Instead of choosing a boring and bare room, why not choose a space that is impressive all on its own? These beautiful New York event venue spaces throughout New York City have stunning views that complement their beautiful settings. 

1. 620 Loft & Garden 

Located at Rockefeller Center, 620 Garden & Loft is an outdoor venue that offers stunning views of Midtown. This beautifully maintained event space features ten-foot ceilings in an indoor loft area that leads out to a manicured outdoor garden. For views, event attendees can enjoy a close-up view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Fifth Avenue. The 3,300 square-foot space can accommodate up to 165 attendees. 

2. 74 White 

For large events, the 15,000 square feet of space in this sophisticated venue offers a beautiful background. Up to 800 guests can enjoy a space that is endlessly configurable. While there are intimate indoor spaces, the star of the venue is the outdoor roof and terrace area. This venue is perfect for NYC events throughout the year, with an indoor space protected by a glass roof. The outdoor terrace is ideal for warm weather events. Located in Williamsburg, 74 White offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn.

The 8,000-square-foot venue features 30-foot ceilings, open ends that lead out onto the outdoor terrace, and radiant heat floors.
