Our daughter was recently married and the reception was held at the very beautiful Studio 450. From the very first day that we toured the facility, Jane and staff couldn’t have been more friendly, focused and attentive. We felt as if we were friends and not customers.
The all-white venue was a blank canvas but we luckily had time to create a theme and add color, personality and style. I envy the staff at Studio 450 because they must see some amazing weddings and wedding décor.
Our guests were amazed by the beautiful view from the facility main room and from the rooftop deck. The weather was gorgeous so our guests were in for a visual treat at Studio 450.
I would highly recommend Studio 450.

Studio 450 is an incredibly gorgeous space - the views from both the main room and the rooftop are spectacular, and the gleaming white interiors make even simple/minimalist decor look stunning. We were sorry after our wedding that we couldn't go back!

The staff are very responsive, friendly, and helpful, and the full kitchen is a godsend.

We hired Studio 450 as the venue for our wedding and reception and looking back now, we are so glad we made the choice to use this venue. Overall, it is a great venue - a great size, amazing views of New York, relatively good location and good facilities. Those who are considering using the venue need to appreciate that you are hiring a blank space and to make anything work there, you still need to bring in the right catering company or event organiser to make your event work but as a choice of venue, it's fantastic. The staff at 450 were always friendly, flexible and accommodating such as allowing us to drop things off for our wedding the day before as another function was about to commence.
We did have one issue when there was a problem with the air conditioner not working properly which was a bit painful for the middle of summer however the staff at the venue were apologetic and tried to get maintenance people out that day to try and have the problem rectified. Regardless, we would still be happy to recommend this as a venue and if need be, would definitely use it again.

Studio 450 is an incredible venue at the heart of NYC. Getting married here was so special, and was part of what made my wedding so amazing. The space has 360 degrees of incredible views, and has a beautiful rooftop deck which our guests loved. The staff was very helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. I recommend this space to anyone for any type of event. Since the space is a blank canvas, you can personalize it with whatever decor is appropriate, you can make it formal for a wedding, or more like a lounge if you add couches.

We found Studio 450 through some wedding sites and magazine ratings more than a year before our wedding...we took one look, and were sold! The views are incredible. The rooms are a blank, white canvas. The responsiveness of the staff (both on the phone and via e-mail) was unparalleled. Our guests could not believe that we found such a gem!

We selected Studio 450 for our 100 person wedding and we are so glad we did. Jane, Jim and their staff were easy to work with and they answered our questions in a timely manner and were negotiable on some points that made our life easier. We hosted a pre-ceremony cocktail party on the east side of the 12th floor with the moveable wall closed and then moved to the west side of the 12th floor where we used a 3-sided seating arrangement to maximize the impact of the view to the west during our ceremony. Our reception in the penthouse was perfect. We did heavy pass-arounds and used a lounge seating setup using Studio 450’s sofas and some rental chairs and our reception looked and felt like a full, very fun dance bar. Our guests loved the location. Jane was also a huge help the day of our event, though she remained behind-the-scenes. We highly recommend having your event at Studio 450.

Studio 450 is an amazing location if you are interested in raw space that is a blank palate and yours to design. It is a photography studio by day, event venue by night (and weekends). The walls are all a brilliant white and the rooftop terrace is available for a ceremony or cocktail reception. It has wrap-around views of the Hudson and downtown Manhattan and an amazing view of the Empire State Building. It was idyllic.

All our guests were wowed by the Studio 450 space. Our guest list was roughly 170 and it had plenty of room to accommodate our guests as well as a full buffet. The views of the city are stunning and it made for a perfect day. The staff is very flexible as well - all you have to do is end the party by 1am. We partied for a good 8 hours which is far longer than many other venues will allow.

This venue is absolutely magnificent. There are floor to ceiling windows that allow for beautiful NYC views. The loft is all white and lends itself to any decor you wish. The staff is very responsive in answering your questions. However, if you are planning on using a space such as this, know that you are utilizing a "raw" space and will be responsible for everything. So, you either have to be VERY good with details or have a caterer who really knows how to plan things out.

AMAZING! We could not have been happier with this venue. When we first started looking at wedding venues, my husband and were mixed about whether to do an outside wedding in a park or garden setting, or a city/rooftop setting. When the elevator doors opened to Studio 450, with the beautiful vast white floor, walls, ceiling and 360 degree windows, we were sold. Couple that with the amazing views of the Empire State Building, New Yorker, and other city landmarks, and we knew we had found our place. The night was incredible--our ceremony was held overlooking the river, we had cocktail hour on the roof, and the rest of the reception was held in the beautiful main room with large windows giving our guests a unique taste of Manhattan. Jane and Stacy were incredibly accomodating throughout the entire process, especially with dropping things off a day before the ceremony and picking them up later. We didn't have to worry about doing everything the day of the wedding, which definitely took a lot of stress off our shoulders. Studio 450 is an amazing venue, and because it is basically a blank canvas, you can plan and create whatever theme you can imagine. Very impressive space!

Being from Long Island, it was kind of a big deal that we were having our wedding ceremony + reception in NYC - most of our 200 guests had never been to a NYC wedding. All I can say is that 9 months later people are still talking about how amazing our wedding was and that has a lot to do with Studio 450 and its amazing views! When on the roof, you feel like you are smack dab in the middle of New York City. We had our ceremony on the roof, and our photos all have the Empire State Building in the backgroud - ahh!! Don't be overwhlemed by having to bring in a DJ, caterer, rentals, etc. They give you a list of vedors who frequent the venue and it's a great guide to go with. If you want to blow your guests away with amazing views of NYC, Studio 450 is the place!

When on the roof, you feel like you are smack dab in the middle of New York City. We had our ceremony on the roof, and our photos all have the Empire State Building in the backgroud - ahh!! Don't be overwhlemed by having to bring in a DJ, caterer, rentals, etc. They give you a list of vedors who frequent the venue and it's a great guide to go with. If you want to blow your guests away with amazing views of NYC, Studio 450 is the place! Read less

Had our wedding here. All of our guests absolutely loved the venue. The views and the space are amazing. Although the Studio 450 staff seem unorganized, they are actually the exact opposite. Our entire day went perfect. Our vendors were allowed to deliver the night before, we were allowed to store our gifts overnight in a secure place. Everything was perfect. Compared to other venues in the city Studio 450 is a great price, with outstanding facilities and very helpful staff. Highly recommended.

Our wedding was beautiful and we hardly had to do anything to the space. The space is gorgeous; it's urban and feels like you're really in the city; the views are amazing; and the light over the course of the night was always changing and made all the photos look dramatic. We also loved that we could bring in our own food and really make our event our way, not a cookie-cutter hotel banquet.

Studio 450 is a beautiful and very large white loft space. It has a 360 terrace with great views of the city, which our guests loved and was lovely for our photos. It worked very well for our wedding because we wanted something different besides the typical hotel ballroom and we were able to bring in all our vendors to make our event personal/special. We booked our date over a year in advance so we had no issues with that and they were happy to show us the space multiple times before we made a decision. They were a little pushy on the fact that they thought we should do a "friday" instead of "saturday" because of the size of our wedding. But I think they believed if we booked the friday they would have an easier time getting the saturday booked from a business perspective - we took the saturday anyway. When it came to needing information, they were quick to respond but sometimes short. If you are booking this space for a wedding, please know that if they have another event you will be unable to use the space to rehearsal beforehand!! Also know if you are bringing in any items yourself, they allow you to come a few days ahead of time and use their space in the basement of the building to store items. We lucked out because the event the day before ours got cancelled and they let us bring everything directly into the space. Other building things to note: the elevator is SLOW and the lobby isn't very pretty. I suggest putting out a sign so your guests know they are in the right place. Once they are in the space, your guests will love it. The space is also a great blank canvas for lighting, if you are into that kind of thing. And we decided to do our ceremony outside on the roof and the freight elevator guy agreed to take me up then open the doors to the roof for my grand entrance - it was pretty cool! I would definitely recommend this place for a couple looking for a nyc rooftop wedding.

Amazingly beautiful space that is very well maintained. We initially had some difficulty with our schedule of the day as we were married on a holiday, but in the end the owners were very helpful and the wedding was great! I would suggest clarifying details such as, the times caterers, etc can arrive and when things must be picked up prior ti signing your contract.

The venue is hands down one of the most beautiful locations in New York. There is absolutely no denying that if you have your wedding/event at this location that it will be stunning. Also, Jim at the venue is a delight and he was the one who originally showed us the space.

Most of the staff is incredibly warm and helpful, but unfortunately there are a few people who are a bit brusque and off putting.

Also, the venue managers could do a better job of communicating to their employees the various expectations for specific events OR they should manage client expectations by being clear that they are not flexible on certain terms. For example, I had double confirmed with the venue that someone would be available to open up the freight elevator for a Noon move in for the wedding rentals. The elevator guy did not arrive until 1pm, which was kind of annoying.

This venue is a beautiful palette and the view of NYC is breathtaking, if that's all u need then this venue is for you BUT I need to give fair warning...at first the owners were very nice, sweet and accommodating but once we booked and were locked in they did change their tune a bit. They did not respond to emails or calls in a timely manner at all, multiple attempts had to happen, once they are asking for payment though they are very easily reached. Also, make sure you get everything in writing well I guess that doesn't matter because a week before my wedding they told us we had a time limit on the place which wasn't on the contract at all and had to pay over time if we went over it ( and this included set up times and delivery from the vendors!!!) we also had a bunch of other very stressful miscommunications that I don't feel like getting into, thank goodness for my event planner who was able to fight the battles. If you book here make sure u have a great event planner and I recommend real foods catering who know the owners and probably have some pull when they try to cause issues... Honestly it wasn't all horrible I just felt like once I was locked in I didn't matter and that they may try to squeeze more money out...but the space is beautiful ad from what remember Jim was nice! Luckily my wedding was absolutely perfect I must say maybe it is worth the extra stress u decide...

This is a beautiful venue. We had booked with Jim Brady who is the owner of the Studio. He was at first very accomodating. Then we paid. These people are really hard to reach. Also, we had a reserved a certain amount of hours and had asked them to open an hour earlier and paid for it. They were not there at the time they said they would be. When my vendors got there there was stuff from someone else's wedding the night before still in the rooms. This made it hard for my vendors to set up and in turn my wedding was late. Also, that day in July it was 100+ degrees. They would not lower the AC temperature any more and everyone was sweating. They said this was because NYS passes some mandate and they could not lower it. They would get fined. I am not sure about this...since my friend had her wedding on the same day in Queens and the place where she got married at they put the temperature to whatever she requested, since it was such a hot day.

The venue staff was hard to contact as they book many events here. The place is also very expensive and you have to bring in every piece of furniture and decor down to the last fork.

HOWEVER, it is an absolute dream location with amazing views and outdoor space for an outdoor ceremony. The perfect place to do everything on-site, altho the location is a bit out of the way.

We organized our wedding here...We liked the venue, but once they got our money, it was a really complicated. They weren't friendly anymore. They are unprofessional, not organized (have a look at their office...), it took so much time and effort to work with them and additional time to get our security deposit back... the contract is one page only which doesn't cover everything. If you want to take risks, go for it, but if you visit other venues you will see that you can find places more reliable than this place.
