After looking for months for the right venue to have our wedding, my sister and I walked into The Yale Club and I know immediately this was the place. The room took my breath away, beautiful tall windows with hand craved walls and ceilings; it felt like a fairy tale. It was a dream wedding, our fairy tale day, thanks to The Yale Club and special thanks to Christy McGill. Words can't express how grateful we were for the guidance and professional talent Christy and the Yale club provided. Christy made sure every detail was addresses and was so on top of everything, we were able to enjoy our night knowing we were in the best hands. The Yale Club did such an amazing job: food, service, guest rooms everything was just over the top incredible. I have never tasted food so amazing from the spread at the cocktail hour to the incredible dinner. The service was impeccable, Carlos and his team ensured a every guest had what they needed and the tables looked good throughout the night. Christy helped me throughout the planning process and was so responsive and accessible to answer all our questions and provide excellent vendor recommendations. My guest were blown away. The Yale Club exceeded all my expectations.

My husband, Adam, and I had the wedding of our dreams and it was all thanks to the Yale Club. We worked with Christy and she and her team are absolutely incredible! Christy was such a big help from the moment we booked the venue to our wedding a year later. She was always accessible if we had any questions or just wanted her opinion on a vendor or decision. Christy made sure the wedding was perfect and was so on top of everything, we never worried about a thing with her. Everything was so well organized and easy that it allowed Adam and I to really relax and enjoy our big day. My guests all had the best time at the wedding! The food was so delicious and the service was outstanding! My husband and I felt very taken care of and everything was set up beautifully. Our ceremony and reception was in the grand ballroom and the cocktail hour was up on the roof terrace. The rooms were all gorgeous and we loved being able to use different spaces throughout the club. Countless guests have told us our wedding was the best they've ever been to. We cannot say enough good things about the Yale Club, the building is beautiful and the staff is the best! Thank you so much Christy, we couldn't have had our wedding without you!

Booking your wedding at the Yale Club is a guarantee - at baseline - for a better-than-average wedding day for you and your guests. Think premium food and beverages at baseline, beautiful venue with rooftop views of mid-town Manhattan at baseline, Yale cachet at baseline, and a premium wedding coordinator who will guide you through everything you need to know about getting married in Manhattan at baseline. Now, imagine having all of this at baseline so that an elegant, well-planned wedding is a guarantee, and add the ability and freedom to decorate this beautiful canvas with your own touches through choice of music, food, and drink to turn an elegant, well-planned wedding into an elegant, well-planned, and personalized wedding. I am a busy but discerning bride who was able to execute the latter by making a few key personalized dance and music choices and using the power of the Yale Club to take care of the rest. You do not need to be a Yale Club member, however I think you do need to at least know a Yale Club member who will vouch for you and co-sign the contract, which may explain how this premium experience can be had at such a moderate cost.
Of note, Christy and her expert team are second-to-none. I had so much fun after my own wedding at the Yale Club in December 2014 that I sent Christy an email expressing my joy and thanks that very evening. Oh, and do not forget the convenience of on-site guest rooms and a delicious, on-site post-wedding brunch. Definitely 5/5 stars on all counts.

We looked at many venues and finally made our decision by choosing The Yale Club. We are so happy we did because it was perfect! People are still talking about the wedding months later. Additionally, the food and service was amazing. Christy, our wedding coordinator who works for the Yale Club was also fantastic. She made sure all the vendors were on time and that everything ran smoothly. If we could do it again, we would! Thank you Christy and The Yale Club!

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 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.
