THE GARDEN ROOM BALLROOM
The Manor's all-new Garden Room takes full advantage of its sunlit rooftop exposure, with a vantage-point overlooking The Manor’s grand waterfall and views of Eagle Rock Reservation beyond.
The room's design creates a light, open and more pastoral-feeling space. Lined on two sides with glass-paneled doors that open to a wrap-around outdoor terrace, the room is bathed with light in the daytime and shows off the glow of The Manor’s accent lighting on its grounds in the evenings.
With details reminiscent of an English conservatory, the Garden Room brings a fresh and unique option for guests looking for a distinctive event space; one that is more inviting and a refreshing change from other more typical cookie-cutter "banquet halls".
This aesthetic is fluidly integrated with modern amenities including a large-scale video display screen and customizable LED lighting in the ceiling coves. Programmable to any color, create a room environment that matches your color scheme or sets the perfect ambiance, and save the additonal expense of renting uplighting. Give a multimedia presentation, play a video, or roll a photo slideshow for your guests on our 75" smart display. When not in use, this display adds to the room's elegance, disappearing behind an ornately-framed mirror. The many unique, authentic design details will create a lasting impression with your guests.
Seats up to 80 guests.

GARDEN ROOM LOUNGE
The Garden Room Lounge is the first of two adjoining rooms in this space and was designed to create a more social and interactive environment for guests. Perfectly conducive to an enjoyable cocktail hour and relaxed conversation, you’ll find your guests in no rush to sit down to dine.
The lounge includes a private dedicated lobby at the main entrance of the room, perfect for greeting guests with a glass of champagne or registering them as they arrive. The entrance offers direct access to the outdoor terrace, while an impressive wooden arch marks the threshold to the lounge itself.
The inviting seating includes soft lounge-style chairs as well as ornate, yet comfortable, leather bar stools. The custom-designed cocktail tables are built of rich wood with sturdy decorative bases.
At the far end of the room, the striking custom-built bar area adds to the grandeur of the space. From the massive granite bar top, to the backlit onyx panels, to the hand-made Cuban floor tiles, the level of detail and craftsmanship is immediately apparent. Behind the bar stands a massive display with a mirrored back that further adds to the depth and scale of the space.
The fine pendant lighting above the bar, the wall sconces, showpiece chandelier, cove lighting, and elements built into the bar itself are all individually adjustable to your preferred settings--and with the swipe of a touch screen, the room can be set to be lit in any color of your choosing.
A focal point of the room is the richly-finished wooden stairway leading up to the elevated ballroom, creating a natural flow and an exciting first look reveal as guests take the few short steps up.
This pre-function space was created with our guests’ needs in mind. Easy access to an adjacent restroom and an elevator were also incorporated and designed with ADA-compliant handicapped accessible accommodations.
Whether using this room alone or in conjunction with The Garden Room Ballroom, you’ll have a head start on hosting an impressive and unforgettable event.
THE GARDEN ROOM TERRACE
Make the outdoors part of your event experience in the Garden Room. With a connected open air terrace that wraps around the ballroom to offer bird's eye views of our grand fountains, our grounds become an added feature of your guests' experience. Whether as your own Juliet balcony for photos, a place to enjoy cocktails before sitting down to dine, or as an escape for conversation from the bustle of your party, the Garden Room Terrace is exclusively yours to enjoy.
THE GARDEN ROOM BRIDAL SUITE
Our Garden Room Bridal Suite offers a cozy private sanctuary to escape and prepare for the events of the day.

With ample lighting and multiple mirrors, the inviting suite will help ensure that our brides look their best. The wedding gown-friendly seating at our mirrored dressing table and the adjustable seating at our granite vanity make getting ready a much more enjoyable experience.

A GARDEN ROOM WEDDING
The warm and romantic ambiance of The Garden Room ballroom is the perfect setting for your wedding celebration. Light, airy and cheerful, this unique room is far from the ordinary banquet hall aesthetic.
Perched atop The Manor and wrapped on two sides in fully-functional French doors, the room makes the outdoors part of your experience. With direct access to the wrap-around outdoor terrace that overlooks our grand waterfall, the room welcomes in the light.
As day turns to night, the soft glow of the surrounding sconces and chandeliers create a charming mood. With fully customizable colored LED cove lighting, you can wash the room in your wedding color as subtly or boldly as you’d like.
Dance the night away on our unique floor of authentic hand-cast tiles of rich earth tone hues. Free from having to be restrained to a pre-defined dance floor, you can set the dance area based on your table layout and guest count so the room never looks too big or too small for your event and everyone can take part in the fun.
A classic charm, a refined aesthetic, and authentic details created with genuine craftsmanship and care make this room as special and unique as the love you’ll celebrate on your wedding day. Let us help you create treasured memories for your guests of an unforgettable day made all-the-more special having been shared in the warm and romantic environment of The Manor's Garden Room.
