In the city that never sleeps, we’ve searched high and low for great venues that give our clients the sense of New York City without submerging them in the hustle and bustle. One of our clients in particular that hosts an intimate learning and networking conference and wanted a cool, calm and collected atmosphere designed to inspire guests. After our hunt, we couldn’t keep these gorgeous venues all to our self! Check out some our favorites below:
Leave it to BK to hold one of our favorite venues in the city. Inside the rustic reclaimed wood environment, runs a fully functioning commercial winery and event space. “Fireside Chats” are becoming all the rage in corporate events to put a warm, welcoming twist on learning sessions, and although the venue does not have an actual fireplace-the warm and cozy atmosphere is undoubtably present.
Located right over the Williamsburg bridge, this event space is just moments from the hustle of Manhattan, but is sure to leave the stress of the rat race at the door, for a cozy atmosphere that is sure to relax any of your guests. www.bkwinery.com
A venue designed for all of the 5 senses, The Bouley Botanical is meant to keep guests engaged in the space, while staying engaged with each other. Nature is few and far between in NYC, but there are over 400+ species of edible plants that hang from the floor to ceiling windows in this space. Hosting a nonprofit event that focuses on going green? This event space is sure to inspire and get attendees in the right mindset before the program even starts.
Smack in the middle of Tribeca and Soho, Bouley Botanical is conveniently located in Manhattan, but plenty south of Midtown. The quieter part of the island is the perfect spot for this nature themed venue. www.davidbouley.com/bouley-botanical/
The Green Building
Please hold while we swoon over the size of those windows. “Natural light” is an absolute luxury in NYC – and The Green Building offers plenty. The 4,000 square foot space has endless possibility for your corporate or nonprofit event. For example, host a presentation at the front of the room, and feature products behind to bring the experience of the event full circle.
The style of this venue perfectly ties in a rustic feel with the exposed, worn brick; modern vibes with the black slate floor and pipes in the ceiling, and of course pure elegance with the giant windows, curtains, and chandeliers. www.thegreenbuildingnyc.com
The Farm SoHo
Co-working by day, Party by night! With three event spaces meant for presentations, dinners, or casual lounging, this little piece of farm heaven in Soho is worth every penny. The atmosphere is cozy and rustic with a sense of the country right in the middle of the Big City. And with a past client list of Reebok, Zara, L’Oreal and the United Nations, it’s a one size fits all for corporate and nonprofits.
Located on Broadway between SoHo and Little Italy, the venue is super convenient from many subway stations. www.thefarmsoho.com
