Each event room features clean-canvas adaptability as a variation of the iconic Manhattan loft style. This enables remarkable room transformations that event planners and clients love. Each event space has catering preparation areas, coat check, and function rooms for back-of-the-house use. An indoor loading dock and easy subway access are other great advantages of Metropolitan Pavilion.

Full Pavilion

Metropolitan Pavilion’s versatile and expansive ground floor is one of Manhattan’s best-known event spaces. It offers 25,000 square feet of open event space and features polished oak floors and 12- to 16-foot ceiling heights. Its spacious lobby promotes a modern, inviting aesthetic with abundant signage opportunities and a video screen for your event (slide shows, hashtags, brand logos, live feeds, etc.). Through the lobby, guests enter an arched vestibule leading into the expansive main hall, a signature space for New York City corporate events, fundraisers, trade shows, art exhibitions and more. A floor-to-ceiling, sound-resistant, retractable wall can resize the Full Pavilion into the South Pavilion (965-person capacity) or North Pavilion (600-person capacity).
