The Inside Scoop


FROM THE KNOT EDITORS

The First Look

The India House is a beautifully restored 19th-century club located in the center of New York City’s financial district. Established in 1914, this historic landmark building occupying Hanover Square houses 11 historic ornate rooms on multiple levels that can accommodate gatherings from 10 to 200.

Guests will appreciate the private collection of treasured Asian art housed in the India House. Although considered an exclusive club, the India House is now open to non-members for private events and weddings. Two basic venues are available at the India House:

Outdoor Ceremony Location. The couple may choose an outdoor ceremony at the India House. This area provides an uncovered site for the wedding ceremony itself and can be followed by an indoor reception.

Indoor Ceremony and Reception Areas. The bride and groom may elect one or more of 11 separate, recently restored event rooms in the India House for their ceremony and/or reception.

The Marine Ballroom. This space is the largest of these areas and has the capacity of up to 200 guests. Just outside the Marine Ballroom is the graceful grand stairway perfect for wedding photos. The stairway could also provide a striking entrance for the bride and groom.

The Hanover Room. This area is a slightly smaller space, also perfect for a ceremony or reception. With its beautiful crimson walls, crisp white woodwork and stunning oriental artwork, this area would be the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable event.

The Batavia Room. This room is a lovely choice for a cocktail hour or a more intimate ceremony/reception. Cream-colored walls with white moldings are interspersed with antique nautical art. As with all of the rooms in the India House, large neoclassical style windows bring in an abundance of natural light.

The Blue Bar. This bar, as the name implies, is surrounded with rich blue walls. Treasured art and antiques furnish the bar. The Blue Bar is attended by experienced staff and would be a perfect pre- or post-event location for a modest group. The Blue Bar has recently provided the photo scenery for several upscale wedding magazines.

All of the spaces in the India House are beautiful and unique. Working closely with the wedding planners at the India House will ensure the couple will select venues that are ideal for their event.

There are so many great reviews already for India House, but I'll add another. Book it now! I organized a fundraising event here a few years ago, so when we got engaged I knew the place - convenient location, beautiful surroundings, warm service, great food - all at a... Read More surprisingly reasonable price for a Manhattan venue. We got married here on a Friday evening last month - perfect location since most of our guests work in Manhattan (out-of-towners stayed at the charming Wall Street Inn just across the street, as did we.) Our ceremony was in the Hanover Room on the first floor, and the reception with food stations and various seating (tall boy and seated tables) was on the second floor. The historic interior is so lovely, we barely had to think about decor. We got the one sunny day that week and were able to take fabulous photos on Stone Street, Old Slip, and Hanover Square. Staff was warm and welcoming, and took the time to help us find the right oysters and great wine for the reception. They were also very accommodating to my husband's and guests' gluten allergy. It was all so convenient - we could drop things off early and could leave gifts, etc. overnight. India House and its staff made for an amazingly easy, reasonably price, absolutely beautiful wedding.

We got married April 1 at the India House and I am really going to gush right now about how wonderful the entire experience was. First of all, what a beautiful unique venue! Theres a great history behind the building, and it's in such a cool neighborhood right off Stone Street... Read More and a few blocks down from Wall St. People loved the location, and the pictures in the neighborhood and in the venue look outstanding. Exactly what we wanted from our NYC wedding. The Andaz hotel down the street was excellent in terms of location, price, and the rooms themselves. Also, there are some great bar spots to keep the party going afterwards right on the same street. The service was INCREDIBLE. The entire staff treated us like royalty but I have to particularly call out Kevin Mattner and Jonathan Nieves for going above and beyond from our first tour of the building, through the tasting, the planning stages, the rehearsal, and the wedding itself. They bent over backwards whether it was specially catering the menu to our needs, making sure the bar was stocked with what we wanted, making sure our families were taken care of, or anything else we could have needed. The food was outstanding! No tasting menu bait and switch, no microwaved hors d'ouvres, no bland potatoes and vegetables. We ended up going with the rack of lamb and seared arctic char for our dinner entrees and I can't suggest both enough. The entire menu was outstanding, and Kevin's willingness to work with you on what you want for your cocktail hour or dinner menu really demonstrates his and his staff's desire to deliver the perfect wedding. I also want to take a second to point out how much I appreciated their all-in-one pricing structure. So many NYC venues sneak in administrative fees, venue fees, make you bring certain items in from outside, and can really blow your budget out of the water. India House gave us a figure per head and a minimum head count. There was never any weird wedding math, or crazy calculations or secret fees. We were always able to stay on top of costs because of this, and that goes a long way. Again, can't stress how wonderful they made our entire experience. The place is beautiful, and they're always working to make it better. They made everything as easy as could be and I hope I get to use them again for future life events.

The usage of both floors in the space, with the upper consisting of three rooms, offered much to experience for our guests and ourselves.

The staff at India House is top class and really made the whole experience a breeze for us as rather stressed newlyweds! Cannot recommend this unique, welcoming venue enough!

My daughter and son-in-law got married at City Hall in January, and in April we had a celebration at India House. Our planning was rushed, and we were so lucky to discover this elegant, historic and unique venue. The surroundings were lovely -- our guests commented that they... Read More felt like they were in a gracious home, not a catering hall. We didn't have a formal sit-down dinner, but food stations throughout the second floor rooms with different sized tables - large, cocktail and high tops. This encouraged mingling. Kevin, the Event Manager, could not have been more helpful throughout the planning. He was happy to accommodate our requests, enthusiastic about our unusual-style event, re-jiggered the floor plan multiple times as we moved the location of the band and the tables. He had great suggestions, always responded quickly, and bent over backward to make us happy. And he gave us a wonderful price, even including an extra-special food station of our choice. I never imagined that we could have afforded such a sophisticated venue in Manhattan, but the price was right. It was the menu that really sold us, though, definitely not typical wedding food. We had fun and interesting choices -- an Asian station, Mediterranean station and comfort food -- a perfect blend that reflected the diversity of NYC cuisine. Our guests loved sampling different dishes, all delicious. At Kevin's suggestion, we had a late-night station -- NYC street food including hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, and more. This was a giant hit with our guests. And the wedding cake from Financier was scrumptious. I'm still getting phone calls and emails from friends and family telling me what a good time they had and how impressed they were with the food and the surroundings. "Best wedding I've ever been to" is a typical comment. I only wish I had another daughter, so I could do it all over again at India House!

We could not have asked for a better experience with a wedding venue than we got at India House. We worked with Kevin throughout the process. From the first inquiry, communication was professional, polite, and prompt. We were kept informed of details along the way and reminded... Read More of deadlines as they were approaching. We always felt taken care of and reassured. We arranged to drop off our decorations and have the wedding rehearsal in the space the night before and everything went smoothly. Jonathan was our day-of coordinator, and he was friendly, energetic, and calm. The space is incredibly beautiful and the level of service and hospitality is unparalleled. I would be very skeptical of finding another venue whose staff went to such far lengths to make us feel happy, comfortable, and relaxed all day and all evening. We got a lot of compliments on the delicious food as well, and the cake provided by their neighbor, Financier. I would highly recommend India House as a wedding venue, you will not be disappointed.

My wife found India House after a search through the jungle that is the wedding scene on the internet. I was skeptical beforehand as I thought the cost would be way out of our budget, or the service would be scaled back to meet cost constraints. Nevertheless we inquired about... Read More seeing the venue on our way back from the Poconos after looking at rustic wedding venues to of save a buck. We left a voicemail early Sunday afternoon, and got a callback 5 minutes later from Kevin Mattner (aka "The Sweetest Man on Earth"). We asked The Sweetest Man on Earth (TMSE) if we could stop by shortly from when he called, he answered with his rally cry, "Sure." When we arrived, I was taken back with the old New York high society vibe throughout its decor, and my heart was attached to the merchant ship paintings, and the hardwood floors made each step you take feel as if someone important was coming through. After seeing the three floors, each unique with its own aesthetic design, TMSE described how they utilize each area - 1st floor for ceremony, 2nd floor for cocktail hour, 3rd floor for dining and dancing... I loved the idea so much that I began preparing myself for the let down of affordability. After the tour, TSME discussed formalities. Here's where I was ready for the punch in the gut... but it never came. After he laid out initial options and pricing, we saw a glimmer of hope. TMSE told us he would come back with a proposal over email.... from there we achieved an agreement on a package that worked within our budget and delivered key items we wanted in our reception (btw, agreement ended with Kevin responding to our last request with "Sure"). From then on, TMSE was very accommodating with a moving guest list, tasting/menu options, receiving wedding day materials (pictures, flowers, etc...), and adding a cake after our local bakery wouldn't deliver into Manhattan. We held rehearsal the night before, and that's when we got the pleasure of meeting Jonathan - the Operations Manager. He introduced himself as someone who loves what he does (the truest thing anyone ever said). Jonathan coordinated the procession & recession that evening, and ensured we were in good hands. I asked TMSE if he is passing us off, and he responded with his 1st "No"... he insisted that he would be leading from a far and overseeing a variety of functions. Were left in great hands, as Jonathan executed our plans with a passion as if it was his own wedding. TMSE arranged the first look to be at a nearby atrium/plaza called Elevated Acre. When I learned the escalator was broken and knowing our parents would have trouble using the stairs, TMSE quickly arranged for access to the connected office building's elevator. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The reception was everything we wanted and more. Plenty of food and easy access to drinks. We had a cocktail reception format... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS. It works great since it really fits with utilizing the multiple rooms of the 2nd floor. We had dessert and dancing on the 3rd floor for the last two hours... It felt like the best club in NYC for those 2 hours. To cap it off, TMSE let us stay a little over the finish time which really made the guests happy. If you are considering India House and if you are like us which was a couple looking for a fun and relaxed wedding to be enjoyed by all, then book a cocktail reception wedding at India House and tell TMSE that Andrew & Mariam send our regards.

I got married last month and have put off writing this review because I wanted it to be helpful to other people planning their weddings, but all I've wanted to write is "Book them!!" Masterpiece Caterers, India House, and Kevin and his team MADE our wedding reception. Weeks... Read More later, I still have family emailing and even sending cards to thank us for the wedding! Everyone felt welcomed and taken care of all evening. They've raved about the food, the ambiance, and the service. They all left feeling like they'd been treated to a truly special evening. We booked VERY far in advance - we first contacted India House almost two years before the wedding (I'm not implying that this is required, I'm just saying we had a LOT of time to get to know these people). We were offered a tour (which turned into several tours) and were even treated to food and drinks at the Blue Bar before we booked so we could be comfortable with the quality we were getting. Every time we went back to take care of some detail, we were offered drinks and asked to stay a while, even when we ran in to throw some boxes of decorations at them the Thursday before the wedding (and they seemed disappointed when we didn't have time to stay!). The customer service experience here is so much more than just the wedding day. We originally worked with someone else at India House who left about six months before the wedding. We panicked, but Kevin called us on a Saturday to go over every detail we'd previously discussed and make sure he knew exactly what we were expecting. From then on, I knew we were in good hands and I think the switch certainly worked out in our favor. Kevin knows his business like no one else. He's seen it all and will offer his observations and expertise without making you feel like you're being judged for your preferences. We were never told no. We felt like Kevin and everyone at Masterpiece Caterers approached every conversation with the goal of making our vision happen, instead of supervising our choices to make sure they fit in with THEIR preferences. We had a few vendors who tried to bend us to their will and it was always such a relief to speak to Kevin. Any time we spoke and I would make a throwaway comment about "oh it would be nice if we could..." or "xyz would make this a lot easier", suddenly that's what was going to happen. It felt like playing make believe and nothing was off limits. I think Kevin would have tried to find a unicorn if that's what we decided we really needed that day. And it was never in a begrudging "Fine, if you're going to be difficult about it, I guess we have to" kind of way. It was always "Oh fun! Let's try it!" I enjoyed the wedding planning process because Masterpiece Caterers allowed us to have fun with it. I knew every single detail would be perfect on the day of, and it was. We can't thank Kevin and his team enough.

Read More we know, India House would be the perfect space for our wedding. Besides the fact that India House is conveniently located just two blocks from our apartment, the actual space was what really sold us: classy, nautical, and charming all at once, India House reminded my now-husband and I of his family and upbringing, which made the decision a no-brainer. We booked the space after seeing it twice (first viewed it just the two of us, then visited a second time with our parents), but were sold on it from the start when we first met Kevin. Kevin had given us the grand tour of all three floors, explaining the history, the decor, and how the space was used to its best ability to host weddings of many sizes. He explained how some features were updated, but that MC wanted to keep India House true to its roots, which is what really makes the space special. As you walk from room to room, you can't help but appreciate the architecture and vibe. As time went on, my husband and I were introduced to Jessica, who would be our day-of coordinator (HUGE perk, when you don't have an actual wedding planner).

TL;DR, our wedding went off without a hitch thanks to the team at Masterpiece Caterers. Two months later, every time my husband and I walk past India House, we are so grateful to have hosted our wedding there - from the food selection (which - unbiased - I truly believe is the best wedding menu you could ever ask, as it far surpasses your typical wedding meal and is outrageously delicious) to the overall feeling of the space (intimate, classic, and warm). Our guests loved it, our families loved it, but most importantly, WE loved it and all of the memories that were had there. All of the planning was well worth it at the end of the day, and it couldn't have been done without Kevin, Jessica, and the hardworking staff at India House.

The staff was extremely attentive to us on our wedding day; they even went above and beyond by enhancing our decorations with candles on the bookshelf. My husband and I would highly recommend Masterpiece Caterers and their staff to coordinate your wedding day!
