Our venue is versatile for all kinds of functions - it's the perfect space to host a personal event that doesn’t cost a month's rent. Perhaps you’d love to have 30 of your closest friends over for a birthday dinner, but New York apartments are just too small to accommodate your dream soiree? Then look no further! We are accepting bookings for you special event: * Wedding * Baby Shower * Birthday Party * Anniversary Party * Dinner Party * Other Private Events The space comfortably seats ~30 people for a sit down dinner and up to 60 people for a standing cocktail event. It’s a furnished environment including a full kitchen where your friends can cook up a storm or your caterers can make themselves at home. Chic but homey, and looks great in photographs. The natural light is beautiful and abundant! To keep our space affordable, the set up and clean up is up to you. You may move items, we just ask that you return them to their original place after your rental. Please note that the decorations in the space (such as the swooping cloth pictured in the photograph) changes in accordance with the season (sometimes delicate branches and colorful paper flowers, sometimes swooping cloth and twinkle lights). We'd be happy to provide you with information about the specific decorations during your rental time. To keep our space affordable, set up and clean up is up to you - including dishes, wiping down dirty surfaces, sweeping, and if necessary mopping! Please leave the space looking like you found it. You may move items, we just ask that you please return them to their original place. We provide renters with a cleaning checklist and require all renters to clean the space after they leave. If the space is not left clean, we will charge a cleaning fee. All setup and breakdown time needed for events must be included in the total booking charge. We do not provide speakers or a sound system. Renters can bring a portable speaker from home for background music. Loud music is not allowed (i.e. if you want to hire a DJ, we are probably not the venue for you). Renters are expected to be respectful of neighbors and keep reasonable noise levels at all times. St. Lydia's is a small storefront church space that also hosts rentals! We are a progressive, LGBTQIA-affirming congregation working together to dispel isolation, reconnect neighbors, and subvert the status quo. Proceeds from all rentals are in direct support of St. Lydia's. Thank you!
