Found this venue through a recommendation from a friend who had a bat mitzvah at this venue. It was a beautiful venue for a Sunday day wedding with a balcony and amazing views. Katherine is AMAZING to work with: helpful, professional, responsive, diligent and organized. From the moment we met her we knew we were in good hands. She answered all of our million questions patiently, and the prices for the ceremony/reception were very reasonable for NYC. The venue staff were so amazing, they took our supplies and had everything set up before we arrived, even the aspects we had every intention of having friends come and set up. The transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception was seamless thanks to the hardworking friendly staff. Everything went so smoothly and it was an absolute pleasure working with Upper Story by Charlie Palmer. The staff were so considerate and attentive to us on the day, we had a blast with our guests. The wedding day was the best day ever thanks in large part to Katherine and Upper Story!

My wife and I are very satisfied with Upper Story, and would strongly recommend them; everything was nearly perfect. We have received many comments from guests about how great they thought the venue was. The food was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I was skeptical of the fantastic food we ate at our tasting dinner and worried that the food at the wedding would not be as good. How wrong I was; the food at the event was every bit as good. I’ve had multiple people tell me it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. We didn’t do a desert course and brought our own cake, but the appetizers and wine were fantastic. In terms of layout, the venue is clean, updated, and modern. There isn’t really a bridal suite.. What really makes the venue is the outdoor space / balcony and the views. We had great weather, but there are awnings that cover the terrace, so should be usable in the rain. In terms of process, working with Katherine Leong was also very easy. Katherine helped us customize our wedding, down to picking individual ingredients to be included in the salad. The pricing structure was straightforward, simply a function of the number of guests, so we didn’t feel nickel and dimed with fees. Katherine was easy to reach and responded quickly to emails. At the event itself, she was also there to help take care of whatever need to be addressed that I really didn’t want to spend my wedding worrying about, e.g. making sure vendors received the payment, keeping gift envelopes, disturbing tips, etc. We did the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the venue, and the staff did a good job of setting up and tearing down for each part of the event. I’d maybe say the dancefloor was a bit small which made people bump into each other. Also, it got a little too hot towards the end of the evening, but if those were the biggest complaints, I’d say we did very well. My wife and I really appreciate Upper Story making our wedding so great.
