Perry and the entire team were easy to work with and very helpful throughout the process. We had to do almost nothing to decorate the room as the spectacular backdrop of NYC was all we needed!

I got married at the Glasshouses on 10/28/17. We rented out both floors for the ceremony, cocktail reception and sit down dinner. It was an amazing experience working with Perry, Wilson and his team. Wedding planning can be a stressful time and they made my husband and I feel at... Read More ease. They understood our vision for the wedding and were very hands on with any requests we had. I recommend hiring a Day of Coordinator for the day as there were many vendors involved (and for the bride's peace of mind). I had many guests traveling into the city for the wedding and they all commented how beautiful the views were of the city. My husband and I felt like it was an appropriate venue for a NYC wedding. I would highly recommended the Glasshouses to host your next event! Perry and his team are wonderful people to work with and will go out of their way to take care of you.

We cannot speak more highly of this venue. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous (the balcony was a huge hit for guests both out of town and local-made for awesome pics!), but the staff (Perry and Wilson) were beyond professional and accommodating throughout the entire process....

I got engaged at the Glasshouses last Friday (she said "yes!"). It was incredible to say the least! Everything went perfectly. The views are amazing. Perry and the staff were very accommodating and easy to work with. The room was spotless when we arrived. I couldn't have had a... Read More better experience. Highly recommended.

The venue was the perfect setting. Perry, Wilson and the team far exceeded our expectations in terms of the service they delivered to us and our guests. It was perfect for our wedding in September 2016.

Nice venue but unfortunate experience

Reviewed on 10/04/2010 Jana G

I was disappointed with the experience. The space is incredibly beautiful and unique but the management of glass houses ended the reception an hour before the scheduled time. They said that the rental time of the space started when the furniture rentals and caterer arrived (both... Read More of whom arrived early to set up) and it took away from the celebration time when the guests were there. sad.
