Amazing Venues to Host Your Spring Social Event




T’is the season of planning fabulous spring social events in NYC! With so many new conference centers, restaurants, bars, and lounges in NYC, it can become a scavenger hunt to find the treasure locales. Each venue serves an excellent purpose depending on the event type, and event planners should be familiar with all of the best hot spots. If you are looking for amazing venues to host a spring social event in NYC, here are some excellent selections.


The Zephyr located at Pier 16 in South Street Seaport hosts some of the best parties in downtown Manhattan. During the spring and summertime, it is one of the most popular places to go for a great time amongst great people. Their resident DJ, DJ Chris Bachmann is a nightlife icon who has undoubtedly made a name for himself on the East Coast.  Besides the entertainment, the custom cocktails and picturesque views of Manhattan make this venue a NYC event planner favorite for social events.


The Empire Hotel Rooftop located on 63rd Street & Broadway is an upscale lounge on the 12th floor of The Empire Hotel. This NYC rooftop bar is one of the most popular venues for outdoor events by New York event planners. It has breathtaking views of the city as it overlooks Lincoln Center and Central Park. The stellar décor matches the view and together creates an unmatchable ambiance. Truly a top choice for any outdoor event.


Up and Down is a two level venue on West 14th Street in Manhattan where the “UP” is upscale and glamorous and “Down” is laid back and loungy. The two-toned location is perfect for any type of event and planners have the ability to present both styles to their clients. Some clients will prefer the upper level that radiates a chic ambiance, some will prefer the lower level because it is great for a more casual crowd, and others will choose to use both floors in conjunction with each other. Both levels are perfect for a spring social event of any style.
