Getting married in Manhattan is an incredible experience, but finding the right venue can be difficult. We chose Manhattan not only because it was our home, but because of it's rich history. There are many NYC loft spaces you could choose to make your own, but we wanted a venue that felt like old New York and transported our guests back in time. The Yale Club, in our humble opinion, is the best wedding venue in New York. The building speaks for itself with its architecture and decor on every floor, including an incredible rooftop with stellar views, but the mastery that is their Catering Team is what takes it over the top and makes it truly remarkable. Christy McGill Glovaski was our planner and she was UNBELIEVABLE. Leading up to the wedding day, she was constantly available to us and answered any questions we had and accommodated every request. The day of was the most stress-free day for all of us. She manhandled (yes that word is appropriate here) all of our vendors and made us feel like royalty all day. Her second hand man, Carlos, was equally talented and so kind. It's hard to put into words just how flawless their operation is until you live it, but trust us! On top of all of this, the food is DELICIOUS, people are still telling me weeks after how good everything was. Their cocktail hour is decadent and the service is impeccable in every sense of the word. Also, their required vendors (cake & flowers) are amazing and it just takes that much more research/decision-making off your plate. We can't thank them enough for making our wedding day heavenly. Highly recommend this venue!! The best!!

We recently celebrated our wedding at Yale Club NYC. We had an absolutely perfect day and an equally perfect experience working with the Yale Club. Though the staff we worked with did change out during our months of wedding planning, we always received the best service possible. The staff at the Yale Club make the Club what it is. The kitchen staff prepared the most delicious sit down dinner for our guests that people are still talking about. The servers never let our plates or glasses go empty and were incredibly attentive to every detail. The catering staff was exceptional. They go above and beyond to make sure they are present at every step of the planning process as well as every minute of your special day. They are some of the hardest working people you will ever meet! (Someone should give them some comp time soon!) The roof deck and the views it offers, provided some of the best memories for our guests and the beauty and history of the lounge gave our wedding the old NYC feel we were looking for. And the convenience and proximity to Grand Central is unmatched for keeping things simple with out of town guests. Thank you for giving us memories to last a lifetime!

The Yale Club was the perfect place for our wedding. Christy McGill was assigned to us for our wedding as the coordinator and she was awesome and made everything go so smoothly. I truly can't say enough about the staff at the Yale Club - every single person that we worked with was so great. Everyone is still talking about how beautiful our wedding was!

The Yale Club was a dream location for my wedding (Aug 2014). The rooftop views for cocktail hour were jaw-dropping for guests; the ballroom is more gorgeous than comparable rooms in NYC that are double the price.

Food was excellent - rave reviews from our discerning guests (tip: suckling pig for the cocktail reception is a crowd-pleaser!).

Christy and her wonderful team are a VERY well-oiled machine, coordinating all vendors and the entire wedding party so that the day went off without a hitch. No wedding planner needed with Christy at the reigns. Thank you all for the perfect day!!

I wish I could do my wedding day over- it was THAT AMAZING- and we owe a huge part of that to our wonderful wedding day-of coordinator, Joanna Mancuso at the Yale Club. As a whole- from the beginning, when we got engaged and were looking at venues, The Yale Club stood out as an elegant space that was so conveniently located and (shockingly for a Manhattan Venue) very reasonably priced. We had a year between signing the contract date and our wedding date, so it left plenty of time for me to ask a million questions. A few months in we had a change of coordinators, and while I was nervous at first, I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. Joanna was absolutely, without a doubt, my favorite person to work with throughout this wedding planning process. The entire staff at the Yale Club was wonderful on our wedding day, and a month later, we're still hearing how lovely and professional the staff were. And finally, the food. The food was SPECTACULAR. We were blown away at the food tasting and were so excited for our friends and family to experience the deliciousness- EVERYone I talk to has said their food was fantastic- from cocktail hour to dessert. I could write a novel, but bottom line, if you want a centrally located, elegant event with A- Class staff, you HAVE to have your wedding here.

My husband and I could not have been more happy with the outcome of our wedding at the Yale Club. Christy McGill and her team were simply AMAZING. From the first day we went to look at the Yale Club as our wedding venue, I was thrilled with our choice to have our wedding here. The Yale Club was the perfect location (right next to grand central!) and so beautiful. It is well kept, clean, classy and elegant. The ballrooms are amazing. We booked the Yale Club that same day without a second thought.

Then came the difficult task of wedding planning.. without Christy's help I would have gone crazy!! She literally was there to answer any and all of my questions and was always available via phone or email. She would respond quickly and always had an answer for me! Whether I needed help with a contract from one of my other vendors, asking for suggestions or assistance remembering everything I needed to do.. Christy was on top of it. She was always very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.. I seriously cannot thank her enough!! She functioned as our wedding coordinator for the event but honestly I think she went above and beyond.
And then came our wedding day. PERFECTION. The service during our wedding at the Yale was great, the cocktail hour went off without a single glitch. The food and service werean A+. Our guests were raving about the mashed potato bar and pig station. When we walked into the Reception, we were blown away. WOW. Everything we had imagined it to be and so so much more. Christy made sure everything was in its place and set up perfectly. The food at our reception was FANTASTIC. We served the sea bass and steak. Fantastic. Our guests were raving about the food. One of my guests even told me it was the best steak they had ever eaten.. That definitely says a lot. The desert was also delicious. If I could give the Yale Club more than 5 stars I would. Our wedding was perfect. And that means a lot coming from this hard to please Bride!

The Yale Club is one of the most elegant venues to host your wedding, and the level of detail and service provided is top notch. Kevin O'Brien, Director of F&B, leads an incredible team of professional and genuine managers who truly care about making your special day perfect. The Clubhouse has a range of gorgeous rooms, and we used three different ones to showcase the venue's beautiful backdrop. The food is incredible with lots of variety, and the wedding cake from Lulu Cake Boutique is included - a nice perk. It's "one stop shopping" since you can also have your room block, rehearsal dinner, and Sunday brunch all under one roof. The staff overall is hospitable and accommodating, with no detail too small and no request too big. Joanna was absolutely sensational and kept a smile even at the end of the night; I loved working with her. As a longtime Club member, it was extra special to celebrate my big day in my "home away from home."

For anyone looking to have their wedding in Manhattan, you MUST at the very least consider The Yale Club. We had our wedding here on May 31, 2014 and our guests have told us on countless occasions how amazing the food & service was and how gorgeous the room was. The Grand Ballroom is one of the most beautiful, if not most beautiful, ballrooms in the city and allows for the most perfect and elegant pictures. Christy McGill was like a wedding planner for us. We could not have pulled this day off without her - from advice on make-up artists, to helping select our dinner menu, to bustling the wedding gown, there are not enough words to describe how instrumental she was in making our day a success. The Yale Club staff was SO attentive, friendly, respectful all day and night and our guests truly received 5 star service. The shape and size of the Grand Ballroom make it the perfect wedding venue, especially for a band. If we could, we would throw an anniversary party there every year because the Yale Club is just that great. Thank you for everything. xo Izabella and Keith
