About Us

Haven's Kitchen is an urban restaurant located in a three-story carriage house on West 17th Street in the heart of New York City. Close to Union Square and Greenwich Village, this contemporary eatery blends a chic, modern-day décor with traditional sophistication. With versatile spaces furnished with eye-catching flea-market-type finds, the restaurant can accommodate parties from 12 to 200 people. With customizable dinner and drink menus, couples can stage a wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or a cocktail party in the restaurant. Following are the spaces available to wedding couples:

A spiral staircase leads to two spaces, one a dining room and one a living room. Featuring wide-planked floors, comfortable seating, a marble fireplace, a full bar and a unique décor displaying original contemporary art, this two-room area is an ideal setting for a ceremony followed by a reception dinner. Up to 44 guests can enjoy a seated meal in the dining room, while a ceremony in the living room is standing room only. For couples who would like a seated ceremony followed by a dinner, up to 80 people can be accommodated on the second and third floors.

Reminiscent of a Soho-style loft, this floor comprises 2,220 square feet of open space. The space has large windows that face south toward Washington Square Park and New York University. This spot is able to accommodate a seated dinner for up to 80 guests,or a cocktail-style reception for up to 125 people.

There are also options for hosting only a cocktail party at the venue, which can accommodate anywhere from 25 up to 150 guests. Couples can either rent two floors for a large cocktail gathering, or they can book the entire third floor, which, on its own, can hold up to 80 people.


What You Should Know

In lieu of a seated dinner, couples hosting a cocktail reception can select a range of hors d’oeuvres to serve to guests. These hors d’oeuvres are both butler-passed and stationary displays.

Beverages served during the cocktail party include a range of delicious drinks. Couples can work with the staff at Haven’s Kitchen to coordinate a personalized cocktail menu. The event staff includes bartenders, captains, waiters and kitchen staff.

The venue’s third floor is accessed via stairs, and there is no elevator for this level.
