New York City is full of amazing restaurants to host your private events around every corner. So how do you decide which one to choose for your birthday dinner or going away party? One great option is Blaue Gans in Tribeca. This spot serves delicious, authentic Austrian and German cuisine. Unlike many German restaurants in North America, this one goes beyond weiner schnitzel and sausages and serves up lesser-known classics like goulash, spatzle, and sauerkraut. It is a small space, so you can rent the entire restaurant for your private gathering.
Another awesome party option is Acme in NoHo. Whether you want to try out their elevated take on traditional American home cooking or just a few drinks, this place has a cool vibe while still feeling accessible. The private event space has exposed brick and is often candle lit, making it perfect for a warm, cozy, intimate party.
Tarallucci e Vino is the place to book for any size party. Both their Union Square and Cooper Hewitt locations can accommodate anything from corporate events to weddings to baby showers. Guests can book their own catering or take advantage of the amazing menus of Italian cuisine for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
There are four distinct spaces available at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum location of Tarallucci e Vino. The Great Hall, which can accommodate 70 seated or 250 standing guests is perfect for a cocktail reception. The Trustees Room and Lecture Room work great for conferences and meetings. The Garden, which can accommodate 600 seated or 1000 standing guests makes a gorgeous wedding venue.
At the Union Square location, Tarallucci e Vino is housed in a bright, trendy loft overlooking Manhattan. The loft’s many rooms and floors are different sizes and have different features, so there is a space that is right for every kind of party. For a cozy “house party” feel, try the Mezzanine, with its comfy couches and private wine cellar. For a beautiful bridal shower, try the sixth floor loft, which features antique chandeliers and mirrors and a view of our courtyard.
The fourth floor loft is perfect for small weddings, as it can accommodate up to 100 seated guests. This space features impressive design elements like original tin ceiling tiles, floor to ceiling windows, a private show kitchen, and barn doors. The largest space is the third floor loft. It can seat 150 guests and is flooded with natural light from two sides. You will love the breathtaking views of Union Square and the trendy exposed brick.
