About Us

Meeting the need for reliable event spaces of size, flexibility and style in New York City.

Metropolitan Pavilion preserves intimacy and style for events of prestige and grandeur. It opened in 1998 as a skillful integration of two adjacent structures in the Ladies’ Mile Historic District, which includes parts of the Chelsea and Flatiron neighborhoods. The renown B. Altman Department Store of 1896 lends Beaux-Arts elegance to Metropolitan Pavilion. Simultaneously, upper-story industrial lofts of 1929 impart Art Deco refinement. Finally, modern renovations and enhancements provide contemporary Manhattan sophistication throughout the entire event venue.

Metropolitan West is Manhattan’s new frontier for special events. It reflects the emergent energies of Midtown West, also known as Clinton or Hell’s Kitchen. Metropolitan West debuted for Fashion Week in the fall of 2014. But it’s built on nearly 20 years of events experience at Metropolitan Pavilion. Its dedication to flexible service is the same. It offers the same event space adaptability as well. And it has quickly established itself as a venue where innovation and value combine for a wide variety of events.
