Manhattan Penthouse on 5th Avenue has the best views in town! Manhattan Penthouse stands tall in the center of Manhattan on Fifth Avenue at 14th Street, one block off Union Square hub, boasting perhaps the best 360 degree views of any banquet facility anywhere. Its 8000 sq. ft. provide ample room for dining and dancing for 50 to 200 guests, while giant arched Palladian windows frame dramatic vistas of Manhattan real estate from Wall Street to Times Square and river to river. At night, the Empire State Building and many other dramatic skyscrapers light up all around.

Inside lies an amazing penthouse aerie, elegantly tailored and adorned with rich details, a model for trendy loft spaces, causing entering guests to exclaim, "I'd like to live here!" and Avenue Magazine to declare Manhattan Penthouse "the latest in space" at its grand opening.  Outstanding features in the Reception Room, Ballroom, and Executive Lounge include a magnificent oak and stained glass bar, paneled window seats, tall ficus trees, mirrored band area, special lighting, Baldwin grand piano, custom stereo, the finest catering equipment, beautiful oak floors, and those giant Palladian windows framing panoramic Manhattan vistas.

We're known for our food presentations and table service, our catering executives professionalism and charm, and the outstanding values we offer.

We have parking arrangements half a block away.

I had the pleasure of working with both Monika and Jeno from the Manhattan Penthouse while planning my wedding this month. Everyone at the venue was so professional and willing to work with us at every step. The space is gorgeous and the fact that the catering is built in is a huge plus. They handled everything on the day of so well and were so helpful during planning. It is the perfect venue for an NYC wedding.

Professional manager and staff. I have been working with them over 15 years for two events I coordinate each year (equivalent of two weddings each year). I would never do it anywhere else. They never disappoint!! Jeno Steiner and his staff provide top notch service. The space is transformed beautifully and looks magical. The service throughout my events is outstanding. I recommend The Penthouse to everyone!

We are very lucky to have Monika and Jeno aboard, - for over 15 years. They went to hospitality school together in Budapest and came to the US where Monika was at the Downtown Athletic Club until it's demise, and Jeno worked for a catering company in Miami. Then they joined each other in my company and are a great delight to me every day in our wonderful business. Thank you for your comment. Sam Milliken, President

Jeno and his staff did a great job on our wedding day to set up a magical space that was the ideal setting for our wedding. The space looked great and they all handled our day of stresses with composure. The food provided by the in-house caterer was also delicious and gave us plenty of options to choose from. Leading up to the big day, Jeno was great to coordinate with and was always super responsive to any of our questions. On top of all the compliments on the team, you can't beat the view at this venue! Views of midtown and downtown surround the space and both our out of town and local guests definitely enjoyed the background to the evening.

Dear Lisa, Thank you very much for writing your nice review. Jeno is great and is super helpful in the office too and wonderful to be around. Makes our day so pleasant. Sam Milliken, President

We were looking for a great venue within our budget and came across Manhattan Penthouse, as soon as we went for our first tour, we fell in love with the space. The views of the city are incredible, windows from all sides give you amazing views of the skyline. In addition, working with Monika was amazing. She was always super helpful and responsive about any questions I asked her. My husband is a chef so we had a tasting before we even officially booked the venue and then had another tasting, in which they accommodated a special request for him. The chef was very open to any suggestions my husband had, and the food was great on our wedding day. Everything else was great too, Monika helped set up and decorate the day of the wedding and coordinated everything. They also have a bridal room which was perfect so my bridesmaids and I could all get ready right at the venue and not have to worry about traveling from hair and makeup. We had a pretty small wedding with less than 50 guests, they set up the space perfectly for our small wedding but they also accommodate much larger parties. I highly recommend Manhattan Penthouse and Monika!

Early last year my wife and I started the long process of wedding planning, and we started by looking for our venue. We were slightly unique in that we had to plan our NYC wedding from London, without the chance to meeting vendors in person or visiting venues. On our list of must-haves was a team that we could trust, a venue that fit in our budget, and a venue that would capture the beauty of our wedding. We came across Alger House / Manhattan Penthouse on nymag.com and when we read the reviews we knew that we had to give them a call. We originally spoke with Sam, who then got us in touch with Jeno to work out the detail, and from those initial calls we knew that this was the venue for us. When we read the reviews, we thought that maybe the description of how helpful Jeno is might have been exaggerated. We can say that they are 100% accurate. Jeno has to be the most responsive, helpful, friendly catering manager / event coordinator / maitre'd in NYC. We were shocked to get replies from him to emails on weekends, evenings (in NY time) and usually within hours (if not minutes) from sending them. It cannot be overstated at how much at ease this made us due to the anxiety we had in planning this from overseas. Throughout the nearly nine months of planning he gave us the comfort that everything was going to work out -- and it did. Manhattan Penthouse is absolutely amazing. We had family and friends visiting from six states and three countries and for some this was their first time in NYC. What an amazing view they had to welcome them. One side is a clear view of the Freedom Tower, and on the other, the Empire State Building. The catering was absolutely one of the highlights. We received so many compliments on the quality of the food. We could go on and on, but the most important thing to us is that we had the most perfect wedding, in the most perfect venue, in the most perfect city, and Manhattan Penthouse and the team were a big part of that. Thank you!

We had our wedding at the Alger House location, and Monika was our coordinator. She was very insightful, incredibly patient and accommodating, and did not hesitate to go out of her way to ensure our wedding was exactly what we had envisioned. Her experience in coordinating weddings is apparent from the get go and she wasn't shy to make suggestions and/or point out issues that may interrupt or make the flow of the wedding unnecessarily awkward. She also went out of her way to allow us to come in the day before (they were not booked that day) to set everything up. Because of her experience, our wedding was more than we could have hoped it could be. We would not hesitate to recommend the Alger House for a beautiful, intimate wedding and particularly Monika. We don't think our vision would have been possible without her.

It may be customary for the bride to write a review, however as the mother of the bride, I can attest that the staff and the venue were top notch! Very supportive and attentive to every detail of comfort and elegance! I was extremely pleased.

You can tell that the staff of MP has a lot of experience. Literally nothing can ruffle this crowd. Even though I was physically ill from nerves on my wedding morning, and my sweet husband tried to put our lunch menus out as ceremony programs, Jeno kept a completely cool head the whole time and made sure everything was in its correct place by the time our ceremony started. He really saved our butts. I also have to say he was, hands down, the most responsive vendor I worked with during the planning process. He is lighting fast and has great attention to detail. I also want to say, the food here is amazing, and the space is truly beautiful. Our guests loved the views of the Manhattan skyline. Manhattan Penthouse gives you an elegant, drama-free experience at a great value. I highly recommend!

Whatever I write here will not capture the ultimate experience we had choosing this as our wedding venue. Hands down one of the most unique yet affordable venues in NYC. We fell in love with the views and the fact that it's gorgeous even in it's bare bones. We spent so much time visiting venues both in and out of state, and I couldn't tell you how many poor decor decisions are out there, and how inflexible some venues really are. Not the case at the Manhattan Penthouse, they are incredibly efficient, flexible and professional. The food is delicious, the staff is unlike any other and the experience was just a dream come true. We worked with Jeno who is by far the most impressive contact that we have ever worked with. We were married on Oct 1, 2016 and we still have friends and family talking about our special day. Everyone was so impressed by the night that it made every penny worthwhile. We would highly recommend choosing this venue for your rental needs, as it was made for hosting a very perfect night.

As others have noted, you really get great bang for your buck at Manhattan Penthouse. We planned our wedding, for 115 guests, in less than 6 months. Jeno was always honest, helpful, and quick in his responses. By the time the wedding day arrived, I was 100% confident that everything was set. I was right. I had so much fun and never once worried that anything was off or out of place. Thank you to Jeno and the wonderful team at MP for a perfect night.
