15 East 27th Street, NEW YORK, NY
Located in New York City, Prince George Ballroom is a historic wedding venue within easy reach of Madison Square Park. Known for its Neo-Renaissance details, the locale has been a notable landmark in the area for more than 100 years. With a number of spaces available for events, the venue offers an unforgettable nuptial setting. Prince George Ballroom was built in 1904 and was a part of the Prince George Hotel, which featured restaurants and was a common meeting place. It was designed by architect Howard Greenley in a Beaux-Arts style that blended classic and Neo-Renaissance touches. Instantly iconic, the building evoked the grandeur of buildings constructed in France during the 1800s. Throughout the first half of the 1900s, the hotel was a popular destination for tourists. After a decline in that industry, it then became a homeless shelter in the 1980s, until falling into disrepair. Breaking Ground, in partnership with other organizations, stepped in during the 1990s and renovated the ballroom. Now, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, while still providing permanent supportive housing for those in need. Proceeds from events go to supporting Breaking Ground’s causes. Up to 300 guests can be seated in the Prince George Ballroom and smaller gatherings of up to 55 people can take place in the Tea Room. For a more contemporary backdrop for festivities, couples can book The Gallery for their event. A list of reputable vendors is provided to each couple, including photographers, event coordinators, and caterers. With gold Chiavari chairs, a hardwood dance floor, and a baby grand piano, couples and their guests can dance and dine surrounded by a sense of sophisticated splendor. The versatile spaces are suitable for both ceremonies and receptions, as well as other events. Featuring recent renovations, such as eco-friendly lighting, the elegant venue offers a stunning walk through time as couples dance into the future.
