One of the city’s most magnificent buildings, the Metropolitan Club was designed by Stanford White at the height of the American Renaissance. Completed in 1894, the club overlooks 5th Avenue with direct views of Grand Army Plaza and Central Park. With 20,000 square feet of event space, the club can accommodate private functions ranging from 20 to 1100 guests. The beautifully appointed rooms, each boasting high ceilings and abundant natural light, are used for a range of events from intimate dinners to multi-day conferences to weddings.

With twenty four foot ceilings and rich tones of burgundy and gold, the West Lounge is a memorable setting for corporate functions and elegant galas for 150 to 340 guests.
