This venue is absolutely stunning, and April on their staff is one of the most responsive and helpful people we worked with throughout our entire wedding planning process. She offered advice about all aspects of the event, responded often within the hour to our questions, and led multiple walk throughs, and a rehearsal for us. I can't imagine the whole experience without her.

The space is incredible, you will have different rooms for each part of the event to break everything up, and it's in a dream location. The only thing I would warn about is that there are some hidden costs-adding an extra hour to your event, (which you might need since you are only allowed in the building at 3pm the day of), lighting, a security fee etc...so while it is worth it, the price is more than it seems up front.

We are really glad we had our wedding here overall, and our guests all commented about the beauty and splendor of the space.

From the moment I saw a wedding on a blog at the Harold Pratt House, I knew it was the venue for us. It was even more breathtaking in person when we went to see it. It was the first wedding venue we saw and I knew we didn't need to see any others. My husband and I knew we didn't want your typical ballroom wedding and wanted something more unique. The Pratt House was absolutely perfect - it is stunning and is incredibly well kept. They have a great selection of furniture that you can choose from to customize the feel you want for your reception. First Beth and then April were absolutely wonderful to work with. I did not have a wedding planner and I probably contacted April with questions once or twice a week for the two months leading up to the wedding. She was incredibly responsible, helpful, and so lovely to work with. I had never seen the space at night, but when we walked in on the evening of the wedding, my husband and I were absolutely blown away by how gorgeous it was. The day of went by flawlessly. We had 90 guests and felt that the space was just right for that number. We had cocktails in the library, dinner in the ballroom, and then used the three adjoining rooms downstairs for dessert and dancing. We cannot recommend the Pratt House enough!!

The Harold Pratt House was a beautiful venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. I chose the site because of their library. I love books and wanted to have a library involved in our wedding, and HPH allowed us to do that.

We had our ceremony in the white Altschul Room downstairs, which capped our guest list at 120. Then it was cocktails upstairs in the library, dinner in the Rockefeller Room, and dancing downstairs again. I liked moving from space to space, and this wasn't too hard on even the elderly guests. I hadn't wanted to use the large Peterson Hall because it takes a lot of set dressing to make it look less like a conference room, so I'm glad I went with the more traditional rooms.

HPH definitely had the most rules of any of our vendors, but overall they were pleasant to work with. We didn't have any issues getting any of our vendors approved. The setting looked wonderful and provided a great canvas for our florist, caterer, and photographer to work with.

I knew from the moment I first came across the Pratt House that this was it. I didn't want the standard wedding hall type venue, and the Pratt House is just so unique and has such a personality that it sets apart from every other place. It's beautiful even on its own and has a wonderful old world romantic feel to it and I am so glad that we were able to have our wedding here!

April was super helpful from the first time I contacted her (more than a year our from our date!) and both she and Christina were awesome throughout the whole process, very responsive and communicative and super organized. The fee is also very reasonable, especially for being inside Manhattan! Although the Pratt House does have its quirks and rules due to its being a historical building, if you find vendors that have experience working with it as I did, then the process is a breeze! I cannot recommend enough our vendors, Ryan Brown Catering, CLY Chung Photography, DJ 74 events and Events by O9 coordination - they know the venue inside and out.

April and Christina and their team are the best, thank you so much for making my dream wedding day a reality!!

My partner & I just got married at The Harold Pratt House on March 26th, Saturday, and it was so PERFECT & BEAUTIFUL. We had our ceremony in the Altschul Rm, cocktails in the upstairs library, dinner in the Rockefeller Dining Rm, back downstairs for the cake cutting in the Hauser Sitting Rm, lounge in the Greenberg Rm, and DJ/Dancing back in the Altschul Rm. Everyone loved the grandeur of this magnificent Art Deco home! We had a decadent Gatsbyesque vibe with colors of gold candelabras, vases, picture frames, and white flowers throughout the 2 floor mansion. Our 80 guests said it was the wedding of the century!

I can't recommend this place enough and I'd have to give big props to April Sherwin who was our event manager from the venue. She was PERFECT from start to finish! She was VERY quick with email responses, details on what works best, super organized, professional & well put together. One of my vendors even commented during a walk through on how she was the most on the ball event mgr he'd ever dealt with. Anyone would be lucky to have her work with them! I can't thank her enough for making my dream wedding come true!

If you are looking for the PERFECT venue, this place is it!

We loved this space for our recent wedding. This was certainly on the more expensive side (considering once you bring in all the outside vendors), but it is a phenomenal space. April was my contact from the first email I sent, and she was always extremely responsive and professional to deal with.
After my mom toured the three venues, we knew we didn't want a traditional large wedding hall/hotel site. The Pratt House had so much class and character and was located in a beautiful location on the Upper East Side (also ended up being great for outside of Pratt House wedding photos). The nice thing about the venue (especially for us coming from the West Coast), is that we didn't need to plan a lot of other decorations other than flowers, as Pratt House is already beautiful in its own right. With Pratt House, it's a progressive venue - so ceremony is in one room, cocktails flow out of that room, dinner is served upstairs in the ballroom and we used the library adjacent to the ballroom for our buffet. Dessert and dancing were back in the downstairs rooms. The staircase is gorgeous, but there are also functioning elevators if need be. I would say, Pratt House says you can have a max of 130 guests - we had 112 and it felt very tight. I can't imagine how they would have fit 130.
When you book at the Pratt House, they give you a file with a list of recommended vendors who know their space. While these vendors are not all the cheapest in the city, it's nice to go with them, as they know the space and what they are and aren't allowed to do in it. They also understand the "upstairs/downstairs" dynamic the event has. I'd highly recommend using their vendors.

Overall, I'd definitely use the space again. It's in the heart of Manhattan and few places I've been to have more charm and elegance.

This venue allows you to have an incredibly classy wedding for a fraction of the cost. Our guests were blown away by every aspect of the venue. April was a professional to work with, and helped our dream wedding come true. You get so much space for the amount you pay, so make sure you take advantage of it. We divided the dining rooms between the two second floor rooms, and then visited with each table as our guests ate. That allowed my new husband and I to grab a bite to eat with each other in the green room, and spend some time just with each other during the craziness of that day. You can bring in your own vendors, as long as they're cleared by Pratt beforehand.

We hosted our daughter's wedding with 145 guests on April 9, 2016 at the Harold Pratt House. The ceremony was held in the ballroom, cocktails downstairs in the drawing room, dinner in Peterson Hall and then dancing and dessert back in the ballroom and the library. It was perfect. While there appeared to be many "rules" to use the facility, April was very helpful navigating the "requirements" and our very professional vendors had no problem providing the necessary credentials. We used one of the Preferred Caterers who has navigated many times this unique venue and therefore recognized the challenges and opportunities, helping us to make good decisions along the way. While all weddings are "special" this unique venue made it memorable for all in attendance. The weather was not cooperative and knowing that the venue was so special and different assured us that the pictures would be beautiful even without outside shots.

We had our wedding at The Pratt House on June 6, 2015 and could not recommend it more. It has such an old world New York feel and we hosted approximately 100 people there for both our ceremony and reception. Everyone we interacted with was fantastic and we had such a lovely time moving from room to room with our guests for the ceremony, cocktails and dancing. Every time we entered the space we liked it more and we could not have chosen a more regal setting to get married in New York. Very good value for what we paid. We wholeheartedly recommend.

The Harold Pratt House was the perfect venue for our small, winter wedding. It is gorgeously decorated - reminded me of Downton Abbey! We had our ceremony in the beautiful room downstairs, and then cocktail hour in the library, followed by dinner and dancing in the ballroom. We had a small wedding (70 people) and felt this venue was the perfect size for our party! We decided to add on the planning services - April and Madison were amazing. The whole day went very smoothly and we did not need to do anything. They took care of all the coordination with the vendor leading up to the day and on the day itself. All my guests couldn't stop commenting how smoothly the night went and how unique and gorgeous the venue was.
