Event Information

Anniversary, Birthday, Reunion, Retirement, etc.

For a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Brit/Simchat Bat, Pidyon Haben,  or wedding please use the designated form for that event.

Please provide a good-faith estimate of the number of guests you expect. We will adjust your invoice the week of your event based on your final numbers.
For all private events with 100 or more guests there is a $70 per hour mandatory charge for a security guard.  The hourly charge begins 30 minutes prior to the start time on your invitation. For events with fewer than 75 people you have the option of hiring a security guard or asking us to lock the building. If the building is locked we will provide a code for the use of your guests that they will need to use to enter the building.

Please note that if you do not have a guard and someone props the door open your entire security deposit will be forfeited.

Please check this box to indicate that you understand and accept this requirement.

Building Information

Depending on the format and size of your party and any other events happening around the building we will book your party into the most appropriately sized space. If you have a preference for a specific room, please note that here. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
If you have already selected a caterer please let us know. Leave this field blank if you are undecided.
