The Edison Ballroom
Times Square, NYC
If you want a grand “Art Deco” ballroom with that old 1930’s New York feel, then the Edison Ballroom might be the perfect place for your Edison Ballroom wedding. The beautiful and historic building, nestled in New York City’s Times Square, once served as a Broadway-styled theatre and the grand ballroom for the adjacent Edison Hotel. Now the perfect place for your Edison Ballroom wedding, with multi-level balconies that overlook grand chandeliers over the ballroom floor.
The Edison Ballroom boasts the ritzy Art Deco style of its original thirties form, emphasized by metallic details, tufted fabric walls, and a glass-enclosed mezzanine overlooking the ballroom.
The space is actually the former Supper Club and it has some of the most wonderful detailing I’ve seen around town. It’s a great venue for a couple looking to have something less than traditional or retro-themed OR a VERY formal cocktail feeling party. The best part of this venue is it’s history. The Edison Ballroom opened in the 1930s and served as the main gathering place of the swinging Edison Hotel. In the 1970s, the space was home to “Oh! Calcutta!” the ribald musical revue that ran for nearly 6,000 performances, and included plenty of nudity. Now, some 80 years since it first debuted and a $5 million restoration later, the Edison Ballroom would like to play host to your dream wedding. The space boasts room for up to 500 seated guests in a breathtaking 17,000-square-foot event room that is still appointed with classic art deco details. This historic New York City landmark is an enviable locale to kick up your heels and tie the knot—regardless of whether your a native or visiting town in the name of love.
