The Shoreham is the ideal venue for small gatherings and cocktail receptions. They have hosted engagement, bridal/bachelor parties and weddings year-round, with a heavier emphasis during the spring and fall. It is both sleek and stylish, and offers an alternative to some of the larger venues. This boutique hotel, which is a part of the Willow Hotels LLC group, has a truly ‘hip’ and ‘sexy’ feel to it.
Gina, which actual space would you recommend for either a small party or the wedding ceremony?
The ‘Penthouse Loft Atrium’ for your private party venue has the ability to host as many as 45 guests. With over 800 sq. feet of chic space, it is complemented with a wet bar, small terrace (for your friends that haven’t given up smoking yet) and of course amazing views. Their 1,200 sq-foot gallery features its own private entrance adjacent to the hotel. It may be one of the few times where you won’t have to wait to get past the red-velvet rope, because you and up to 125 guests are the stars.
Sometimes couples want to host their wedding ceremony and event all in one place. Is that possible here and if so, where would it be?
For an intimate wedding ceremony I would recommend the Penthouse, where the bride and groom can overlook midtown Manhattan in a stylish setting.
Whatever the couple wants, we can work with them to create a unique event. We offer passed Hors D’oeuvres and plated or buffet Dinner options from a diverse menu. We also offer a one-of-a kind cocktail hour with a special Artisanal Cheese tasting paired with a red, white and sparkling wine. A Fromager (cheese specialist) is present, who acts as host to answer questions guests might have on the cheese and wine pairings.
Finally, can you tell me about the bridal suite? It definitely has WOW factor when you walk through the door.
Our Bridal Suite Penthouse is a spacious One Bedroom Suite with King Bed and separate sitting area with 60” Flat-Panel television. The room also features a large outdoor terrace with glass sliding doors, and all stone bathroom with a 2 person soaking Jacuzzi style-tub and Multi-Head Massage rain shower. This is a perfect place for the happy couple to relax after their world-wind day with a Champagne Toast, mouth-watering chocolate covered strawberries and red rose petals.
So stop by the Shoreham one evening for a cocktail and enjoy a little bit of Miami in midtown.
