Private Events

The Harvard Club has been the venue for New York’s most notable social, civic, corporate and fundraising events for over ten decades.


The Club

The Harvard Club of New York, the city’s most exclusive private club, is ideally located in the heart of midtown Manhattan just steps from Grand Central Terminal and Bryant Park. Opened in 1894, the original three-story Neo-Georgian landmark preserves Harvard’s traditions and timeless legacy. One of the first buildings to be named a New York City Landmark because of its architectural magnificence and history, the Harvard Club is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Weddings and Social Events 

From your engagement party to the joyous day and all the milestones in between The Harvard Club will handle the details from beginning to end. The Club offers 8 elegant rooms for private events and weddings. Exchange vows in Harvard Hall, splendid with its three-story, floor-to ceiling windows and rich, dark Mahogany paneling. The Gordon Reading Room lends itself to wedding portraits filled with the charm of a traditional New York residence. A dedicated Catering Manager will assist with bespoke menus and floral, photography and entertainment arrangements to ensure that each need is flawlessly met. A private menu tasting, overnight bridal suite and custom wedding cake are included. Kosher menus are also available.
