After opening its doors in 2008, The City Winery in New York became a fast favorite with couples looking for a touch of chic in the city. A working winery right in the heart of New York, this dynamic event space provides a distinctive setting for any wedding. The versatility of stepping right off the streets of New York, where fun, urban photos can be made is an added plus.
It goes without saying that The City Winery appeals the most to couples who are wine enthusiasts. Their in-house winemaker David Lecomte creates wine full of abundant flavor that will complement your dinner. In addition to their own selections, they work with producers from around the world in combination with carefully selected craft beers so that there is something for every guest to enjoy.
There are several spaces to accommodate any size party from intimate gatherings to larger receptions hosting up to 300 of your closest friends and family. Wholesome menus created from their Mediterranean, Italian, French, Spanish and Middle Eastern cultures are perfectly paired with wines from around the world, as well as their own blend. The City Winery chefs work hard to create dishes using fresh, seasonal ingredients.
The Barrel Room is perfect for smaller weddings, with twinkle lights and perfectly decorated tables; it sets an intimate but stylish tone. It’s also an ideal spot for a cocktail hour. Couples can host up to 50 of their closest friends and family in The Winery, which is where City Winery produces its own wine. Guests are surrounded by stainless steel tanks and exposed wood interior while gathered at family-style tables which are carefully decorated. The room is warm with candles and open brick walls which are lined with barrels of wine. Each space provides fun and interesting backdrops for the event and fine wedding portraiture.
The floor plan in this 7500 square foot space is versatile and your onsite planner can help you create the perfect layout for your reception. Most services are in-house, all food and beverage, staff, tables with chairs & linens, and use of the state of the art sound system. The inclusive nature of City Winery extends itself to its approach to providing extraordinary customer service. From planning all the way through the events of the day right up to the last dance, the staff is there working to ensure that the couple's vision for the day is brought to life.1/100; f/9.0; ISO 4000; 100.0 mm.
