One of Westchester’s unique jewels, Glen Island was originally created in 1879 as a summer resort for a business representitive named John H. Starin. In 1923, Glen Island Park and Casino was acquired by Westchester County.

The Glen Island Casino was a springboard to success during the 1930's Big Band Era, including that of Ozzie Nelson, Charlie Barnet, Claude Thornhill, Les Brown and the Dorsey Brothers.

In March of 1939, Glenn Miller and his orchestra got their big break when they were chosen to play a summer season at the prestigious Glen Island Casino.

The casino was closed in 1978, but reopened in December 1983. The original shell of the building and the dance floor in the second-floor ballroom, where the bands played, were retained.

Most recently, a new era has begun. After a $10 million dollar renovation, the Glen Island Casino transformed into the Glen Island Harbour Club—Westchester's premier banquet facility—where new, everlasting memories are created Read less

Rodney, the event manager, was courteous and professional throughout the whole process. He was very easy to work with. John was our maitre'd and he made sure our whole process went smoothly, a very awesome and easy going guy. Our Bridal Attendant Alicia was simply amazing. She made sure my wife had everything she needed, was available for us the whole night. Even while we were busy dancing the night away, I was told she was in the bridal suite cleaning up after us. Alicia is simply the nicest and hardest working person we have ever encounter. In general, can't stop raving about their service in general.

Th Glen Island Harbour Club provided us with the most perfect wedding we could have imagined. The wedding chapel set the tone, absolutely spectacular. The wedding, according to our guests was
'over the top" and beyond, "unbelievably lush and elegant", "we thought of everything" and comments of that ilk. The fact is it is exactly what we expected and even more and our expectations were very, very high.
Unbelievables include:
the view,
the chapel,
the line-up of servers serving varied martini's on the way in to the cocktail hour,
the cocktail hour of all cocktail hours,
the food for the sit down dinner,
the flawless and abundant service,
the coffee, dessert and liquor bar,
the special surprise as our guests left the venue (I'll keep that my secret :) )
Thank you Rocco, the best wedding coordinator ever. The best of the best.
Lisette the bridal attendent and John, the Maitre'd.

Glen island's staff were all very professional and courteous- our banquet manager Jack was always very responsive to our questions and ideas and outlined our schedule for us. Our maître-d John coordinated well with our DJ to keep the party going fluidly with no hiccups. We loved our bridal attendant Andrea- she thought of everything we could want, she was always around when we needed her and she kept us comfortable.

Overall we loved our wedding at glen island- from the food to the cake and Viennese dessert spread to the decor of the hall. All of our guests said our wedding was the best they've ever attended. Thanks glen island!

We were married at the Glen Island Harbour Club on September 12, 2014 and our wedding was perfect from start to finish. We worked with Rocco and he was truly amazing. He answered all my questions and provided the absolute best service. To this day, I am still getting compliments about the food, the attention to detail and the impeccable service. We highly recommend the Glen Island Harbour Club and I hope we get invited to a wedding there in the future so I can enjoy the experience of being a guest at this fabulous venue. Thank you Glen Island Harbour Club. We could not have asked for a better wedding.

Rocco is amazing!! I cannot say that enough!!! He is so knowledgeable in event planning, well organized and easy to work with! He responds right away! His team and venue is like a well oiled machine, very very professional and on top of everything. I did not have a worry about planning my wedding at Glen Island. The food is amazing and abundant! I received so many compliments on the food! Saying that this was the best wedding food they've ever had.

Just the drive up to the venue sets the tone for the event...you drive over a mini drawbridge with boats in a marina. The 360 water views are stunning! We first looked at it in the winter and it was still beautiful. We got married last night and it was just such a gorgeous place in the summer. Our event was at the terrace room and the view was breath taking. The weather was perfect and having the ceremony under the tent could not be more picture perfect. The reception room with windows was beautiful...my guests could pop in and out for air and most of them sat outside for cocktail hour. The whole set up was beautiful.

Lisette was our bridal attendant and she was with me from 10am till midnight! Every single bridesmaid and both mothers was impressed with her and kept saying over and over this woman is soooo good. Right before we walked out the door she showed up magically with static guard and sprayed all the bridesmaids dressed! She ran the rehearsal right before the ceremony and got the bridal party in order.

Overall, I believe this venue is too good to be true! The staff, food and atmosphere was perfect! Working with Rocco was such a pleasure! It would be a mistake not to book here. I want to keep going back!

Bottom line, Glen Island Harbour Club gave us the mot fantastic wedding we could have had. We worked with Jack and James who were both absolutely fantastic, so attentive and so professional. Our guests could not believe the drink service (the bartenders had drinks ready for some guests before they even reached the bar) and the array and amount of food. Our wedding was truly spectacular thanks to the amazing staff of GIHC. The views are beautiful, but it is the attention to detail that makes this venue wonderful. Do not hesitate to book your wedding at GIHC.
