Some people consider Thanksgiving and Black Friday mega-sales to be the “unofficial official” start of the holiday season.  But in the corporate and social event world, planners start looking for party places long before then – and it pays to book early.  Many venues are offering great deals to early-bookers.

The Highline Ballroom and B.B. King Blues Club & Grill are offering a 10 percent discount on food and beverage to event planners that mention Great Places.  Located in the heart of Times Square, B.B. King Blues Club and Lucille’s Grill can accommodate between 550 and 1,000 guests.  The Highline Ballroom in the trendy meat-packing district, can customize its space for parties and events for up to 340 seated guests, or up to 700 guests for a cocktail reception.

The glitzy GoldBar is offering a free bar upgrade for bookings signed before Thanksgiving.  With 12-foot vaulted ceilings adorned with gold leaf and crystal chandeliers, GoldBar is no doubt one of the most luxurious venues in New York City.  Its space can be customized to accommodate parties and events of all sizes.


Book a party for 20 or more people at 9A Kitchen & Lounge and receive complimentary champagne and dessert for all guests – plus, the host/hostess gets a $100 gift card!  In addition to its chic industrial décor, 9A is equally accessible to New York City, Westchester and Northern New Jersey, and offers parking next door to the venue, or valet service.
