New York City has an eclectic and varied number of event spaces for Jewish weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, parties and corporate events. Our modern city is home to the hottest trend-setting architecture and fashion, so we were delighted to discover The Prince George Ballroom. Located in the FlatIron District in Manhattan and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Prince George Ballroom is a feast for the eyes with its Beaux Arts style and Neo-Renaissance flourishes. In the spirit of tzedakah (charity), 100% of its net revenue is used for NYC outreach programs to help the homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers.
Following cocktails, guests are directed to the Ballroom, where they may as well have stepped back into time. The beautiful Renaissance details of the original hotel have been restored to their original splendor. The ornately painted beamed and coffered ceiling is complemented with Corinthian capitaled painted cast iron columns. Yet the ballroom is ready to take on the look and theme of any wedding, mitzvah or corporate event.
The bar can be set up among the magnificent and stately columns. The warm nature colors of the room are complemented with the linens and tall floral arrangements decorating the bar.
For a young and trendy look, the Ballroom can be transformed for a lounge or nightclub theme easily and beautifully.
Rehearsal Dinners, Bridal Showers and Wedding Ceremonies can be held in the Tea Room. Accommodating up to 150 guests and configured almost as a square, the space features huge arched doorways and detailed dark wood wainscot.
Hosting an event at The Prince George Ballroom and World Monuments Fund Gallery means much more than celebrating in a beautiful venue with excellent services. The Prince George Ballroom is owned by Breaking Ground, a not-for-profit organization.
100% of the net revenue from the ballroom and gallery is a charitable contribution (tzedakah) used to support Breaking Grounds’ housing development and outreach programs for homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers.
What a meaningful way to start off one’s new married life or to set an example for your mitzvah child. Not only does the child participate in a mitzvah project, but the parents do as well!
