Fully equipped with computer, projector and internet access, the Orchard Room is a perfect space for a meeting or presentation, while the beautiful wood floors and brick accented walls make it ideal for a sit-down lunch, dinner or reception event.


Also appointed with our in-house AV, the Delancey Room features a presentation style demo kitchen, perfect for one of our signature interactive event experiences featuring immigrant inspired cuisine.


This more intimate space is ideal for board meetings and small lectures and includes our in-house AV system. The Allen Room is also a wonderful space for small cocktail party or an arrival reception prior to a sit-down dinner in the adjoining Orchard or Delancey Rooms.


Whether you are looking to host an intimate film screening, product presentation, seminar or media announcement, the Tenement Theater is a great space. Located just off of the Gallery, your guests can enjoy a reception along with their showing.


The Gallery is adjacent to both the Tenement Theater and the Museum Shop; making the modern and unique space ideal for networking events, silent auctions, art exhibits, and cocktail parties. The Gallery is also a prime location for arrival receptions before larger dinner events in our Museum Shop space.


The largest of our private event spaces, the Museum Shop can accommodate various event themes and formats and offers a sprawling ground-floor view of the Lower East Side.
