Akilah C. booked a birthday party for 75 people
Thoroughly enjoyed working with Elizabeth and her family to plan my mom's surprise 60th birthday party! Not only was the space beautiful, but Elizabeth's responsiveness, kindness, and thoughtfulness was unparalleled (she even sent me a note on the day-of the event when she learned that the subway line closest to the venue would be down). I'd give her 6 stars if I could!

Lois R. booked an event for 80 people
The Elegant Victorian Ballroom was phenominal! We could not think of a better place to have my Grandmother's 80th Birthday. The owners of this establishment made our event a success. They went above and beyond what was required of them. I have already begain to refer others to this space. I just want to say Thank you over and over again. Looking forward to our next large event... We're having it here! 😁
Lilian P. booked an event for 100 people
I had a wonderful experience booking this space with Elizabeth. I hosted a memorial there for a family member. I visited once in advance and she and her husband were incredibly accommodating, moving furniture to our needs and suggesting little touches to improve upon the arrangements. The space is beautiful, full of light and has a wonderful history. I would highly recommend this space and would love to book it again on a happier occasion. Guests had no trouble parking or walking the short walk from the train.
