Gold Room

The Gold Room features gilded walls that rise 30 feet to a beautiful, barrel vaulted ceiling. Originally used to host Sunday afternoon concerts, the Gold Room continues to honor the power of music and drama as depicted by the lunette wall murals by American artist John La Farge adorning both ends of the room. Able to accommodate up to 150 guests, the Gold Room is an inspiring choice for meetings, events, and dining, and also offers a private bar.

Gallery Room

Featuring a painting by Saint-Gaudens celebrating, joy, hospitality, and moderation, the Gallery Room is a resplendent Italian Renaissance-style room accommodating up to 60 guests. Available for more intimate meetings, events, and dining, guests enter the 900-square-foot Gallery Room through large, sliding doors embellished with an intricate pattern formed by diminutive nailheads.


Lined with bookcases containing some of literature's masterpieces, the Library accommodates up to 100 guests. Enjoy the Library's 19th-century New York City atmosphere as you and your guests recall the great minds who laid the foundation for one of the world's greatest cities.
