PRINCE GEORGE BALL ROOM IS SIMPLY AMAZING!
ONE OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS IN NYC!

My fiancé and I were one of the unlucky couple who lost our venue, Angel Orensanz, 8 weeks before our wedding date. We were so lucky to be recommended to the The Prince George Ball Room by our caterer.

From the start Karen was a breath of fresh air to work with.She help calm our nerves and was extremely organized, helpful, and a joy to collaborate with; she made the entire experience a wonderful one. The venue itself is simply breathtaking. It combines "new new york " the gallery room with "vintage new york" the Tea Room and Ball Room its self.

We were truly blessed to be able to have our wedding here. I would recommend this place to any couple.

It was such a joy working with Karen, ballroom manager, Prince George Ballroom, NYC, for our October 5th wedding. Throughout the entire process, Karen was extremely organized, helpful, and a joy to collaborate with; she made the entire experience a wonderful one. The venue itself is stunning, but it's Karen who makes the venue truly special.

Karen is highly knowledgeable and provided terrific suggestions in multiple areas, from liquor and decor to lighting. Karen allowed Marine Lane to truly personalize the cocktail hour, resulting in the event winning a Print Celebrates Design Award from Print Magazine.

I would highly recommend Prince George Ballroom for its historic, beautiful space, but as importantly, the space's phenomenal manager, Karen Jimenez, is the enabler.

I just got married at this venue, and it is a hidden gem. It worked amazingly well with my colorful Indian wedding. The site fee goes to a non-profit called Common Ground, which helps homeless in New York. We had our ceremony in the tea room (tiffany blue with mirrors), the cocktail hour in the gallery space which is very modern with art pieces, and our reception in the ornate colorful ballroom. It is an absolutely stunning venue - all our guests were blown away. Also, Vicky and Jonathan were incredibly helpful and accommodating! Can't say enough about this amazing space - go check it out

They were awesome. We had an issue with the wine list they provided and Jonathan made it work last minute. They are fabulous. My guests loved the ceremony in the Tea Room, cocktails in the Gallery and were awed by the reception in the ballroom! At the Prince George, they even had our stuff that we left there the night of! We were able to pick up everything we left behind. ANd yes you will be forgetting lots of things and to have them put aside waiting for you when you regain your senses is great.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception here, and everything about it was fantastic. The staff, Karen especially, were extremely helpful all through the planning process and on the wedding day, with all of the last minute things that came up.

The ballroom is gorgeous and felt just the right size for our 130 guests (though it holds up to 300), and we held the cocktail hour in the adjoining gallery space, which we could decorate as we liked. The space was originally built as a five-star hotel and now is a supportive housing building owned by the nonprofit Common Ground. This is a truly amazing venue doing great work in the heart of Manhattan, and we were glad to be able to support it through our wedding rental.

The Prince George Ballroom was amazing! My husband and I fell in love with it from the first time we saw it- actually he saw it first, having attended a charity event there. He insisted that we go check it out, and I was blown away.

We first worked with Jonathan, who told us of the ballroom's awesome history and Common Ground's mission. As our wedding approached, we worked with Karen Jimenez. Karen was WONDERFUL.

Funny, easy-going, and organized, she really led us through everything. She helped us customize our alcohol list to accommodate our kosher wedding, and helped us work with our other vendors, including flowers and lighting. She was so kind and helpful, a real friend and asset as the wedding came closer.

The venue itself is so beautiful and unique - see the other reviews for more details. It is a true NY secret, you would never know how awesome it was inside if you were walking down the street.

It is somewhat of a raw event space, where you rent tables and chairs and everything and bring in a caterer. We ended up renting about half of our decor from the ballroom itself, half from the caterer, and draping for the ceremony from the lighting company. Karen was great in coordinating all of this and working with the vendors - everything ran extremely smoothly on wedding day.

Plus, the proceeds support Common Ground, which was like the cherry on top of the sundae. I am so glad we got married there!

What an incredible experience! From the initial meeting we fell in love with this fabulous venue and it's cause. Jonathan Rieves was such a pleasure to work with and was so responsive to our requests (there were a whole lot within the 10 month wedding planning process!) He is a man of his word and really went above and beyond to make our day perfect as he assured us from day 1. We were so happy to find such a cool venue in a prime NYC location. Our guests have been ranting and raving about how beautiful the wedding was for weeks! This is a great venue for a bride/groom who do not want the cookie cutter wedding venue that everyone has been to over and over again!!

We held our wedding here on October 1st. This place is an absolute hidden gem, I'm amazed that this isn't a better known venue. The ballroom is gorgeous, it’s really like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The ceilings and walls are made of ornately carved wood and the room contains a very large fireplace which can be filled with candles to provide a one of a kind look and atmosphere. The room is large – we comfortably sat 200 guests. One of the great things we found is that the room is so beautiful that we didn’t have to spend any additional money for lighting or additional rental upgrades (colored napkins, chair covers, plates with design/trim). It also permitted us to save a LOT of money on flowers because we could get away with very simple flower arrangements. We held our reception in the ballroom and then guests moved into the Gallery space for our cocktail hour. The Gallery provides a great contrast to the old-world style of the Ballroom. Most importantly, we loved the fact that the ballroom is owned by Common Ground, a non-profit organization that provides affordable/supportive housing and job training programs for homeless, disabled, elderly and low income individuals. As we were spending so much money on our wedding, it was nice to know that some of the money was going to support such a good cause. Jonathan and Vicky were both a pleasure to work with.

We held our reception at the Prince George Ballroom, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The ballroom itself is absolutely gorgeous, and the gallery space is such a fantastic contrast to the ballroom. But best of all was the service, helpfulness and kindness of Jonathan and Vicki at the Prince George Ballroom. They were super! I highly recommend the PGB for anyone who wants a spectacular NY wedding in a location that not only looks amazing, but IS amazing because it's part of the Common Ground non profit that helps rehabilitate the homeless. So in the end, your money is even going towards a good cause!
