The full wall of windows in The Bridge Room makes the room feel bright and airy while providing tons of natural light, perfect for capturing every moment of your vows, and unparalleled views of New York City. A fireplace to make the room warm and cozy in the colder months and the attention to detail by the staff make The Water Club and excellent ceremony spot year-round.
