About 42West44


Whether it is for a classic New York wedding, corporate cocktail reception, bar mitzvah, fashion show, or film set, 42West44 offers a dynamic venue space for almost any occasion. Located at 42 West 44th Street, just off Fifth Avenue on “Club Row,” the home of the New York City Bar Association offers an elegant atmosphere for any occasion. Built in 1896, this important historical landmark recalls the glamour of “old New York,” with its sweeping staircases, towering columns, and touches of marble and mahogany.

Scheduling Events

Within this classic setting, modern services and state-of-the-art A/V and IT make it possible to accommodate a wide array of events, from intimate groups to gatherings of up to 750. 42West44’s grand meeting hall, library, reception area, and conference rooms are all available for rental, at rates that are surprisingly affordable for a midtown location.
