Recently, Stephen Fried - Great Places’ very own Venue Czar @venueczar – visited a few places around the Big Apple and shared his thoughts.
Go Studios is introducing the Penthouse Studio. This gorgeous venue with a large outdoor space is perfect for all types of celebrations, product launches, bar and bat mitzvahs, and weddings. It features a state-of-the-art kitchen, amazing skylight and ping pong table – if that’s what you’re into. The outdoor space is quite unique as well and can accommodate 200-plus. This is a rare gem of a venue for sure. 318 W. 39th Street, 212.564.4084, firstname.lastname@example.org, https://www.facebook.com/gostudios.
The Attic occupies 5,000 square feet of bi-level space atop the Hilton Garden Hotel. It is one of the City’s newest nightlife and after-work hotspots and features indoor and outdoor space.
