1027 Fifth Avenue Reception
With its tapestries, fireplaces, in-laid parquet floors and marble walls – among the finest of Gilded Age interior decoration – the first-floor, public areas are ideal for cocktail receptions and other informal gatherings.
Second Floor – The Ballroom
During the day, light streams through its bay windows. In the evening, the dramatically lit Metropolitan Museum is your backdrop. Juliet balconies, crystal chandeliers and wood paneling complete the scene. Stretching across nearly the full length of the three mansions, the generously sized ballroom accommodates up to 150. A stage and descending screen are included. Fully air-conditioned, the ballroom is served by nearby breakout rooms, bathrooms and (in addition to the spiral staircase) two private elevators.
The discretely located, first-floor dressing room with powder room is reserved for brides and family members.
The formal parlor is a generously proportioned room with wood paneling and beautiful red Chinoiserie wall coverings. Looking out on Fifth Avenue, the formal parlor is ideal for a private luncheon, dinner or meeting for 50-75 people. A descending screen concealed in the ceiling is available for presentations.
Perhaps the quietest and most private location in the mansions (it was once used for billiards) this exquisitely appointed room – floor-to-ceiling oak paneling, Persian carpet, sofas and arm chairs – is a perfect place for families to gather before the reception. It is also a great option for small meetings, luncheons and dinners.
