Cocktail Party Options in New York

A cocktail party venue in New York will need things like great food and decor. Depending on the venue and theme, you may need other items as well.

No matter what type of food you wish to serve, New York is home to a wealth of catering companies that offer full-service. Not only will they cook and deliver delicious cuisine, but they’ll also handle the bar and service at your cocktail party.

  • Private Car Service
    Although many visitors to the city take advantage of public transportation, when hosting an event, it is important to make sure all your VIPs arrive in a timely manner. This is where hiring a private car service can be handy. Most private car services will not only offer airport pick-up service, but they will be available for the night of your party.

  • Event Planners
    Because so many come to New York to host an event, the city is home to many reputable event planners who know how to plan a fantastic party! These individuals will happily not only plan every detail of the party, but most established event planning professionals in NYC have long-term relationships with vendors across the Big Apple.

Pros and Cons of Cocktail Parties in New York

Have you narrowed down the choices for the perfect New York cocktail party venue? Take a quick look at the pros and cons as you finalize the decision.

Advantages

  • Food choices
    The culture of NYC is influenced by so many influences from traditional Italian dishes to Middle Eastern fare to Hispanic cuisine. When booking a cocktail party venue in New York City, you’ll have a wealth of talented chefs from which to choose the perfect victuals for your soiree.

  • Always something to do
    While event planners organize your event, you’ll be free to visit some of the amazing places only in New York City. Of course, if there’s something your party needs last minute, in New York, you’re more likely to find a business open to fill that particular need.

  • Great place for networking
    If your cocktail party is also a bit of a business opportunity, hosting the event in New York is a smart business move. Many successful businesses in a wide variety of fields (tech, finance, the arts) call NYC home. A cocktail party in the Big Apple is a great way to meet some up and coming - or established - entrepreneurs.

Disadvantages

  • An uptick in crime
    Most of the Big Apple is safe. Like all major cities, there are “pockets” where crime is a constant worry; those living in NYC will also tell you to simply make smart decisions (don’t walk in Central Park alone after dark). While it’s unlikely you’ll experience any crime during your stay in the Big Apple, it pays to be smart and watch one’s surroundings at all times.

  • NYC is very crowded
    The Big Apple is home to over 8 million people, so you can always expect crowds wherever you go. There’s even an etiquette to using sidewalks in the City; stay on the right – just as you would if driving a car. Expect delays when using public transportation, even taxis. Always plan to leave early in order to make events on time.

  • Traffic is always congested
    Some are tempted to rent a car while in the Big Apple. However, traffic is always congested in the city, and getting around in an unfamiliar area can be hectic at best. A private car service with experienced drivers is a much better way to navigate the city.

Famous Locations in New York City

  • Times Square
    Times Square is the home to the NYE annual bash and the dropping of the ball to ring in the new year. It is also home to NBC studios, as well as great shopping opportunities. Times Square is a place to visit and take memorable pictures.

  • The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
    The Statue of Liberty was a gift from our ally France; those coming into Ellis Island were always greeted by Lady Liberty as they neared a New World. One can climb the stairs inside the statue for some awesome views of the city; Ellis Island is open to tourists.

  • Wall Street
    Wall Street is more than just a place where the stock market is housed; it’s a part of the greater financial district of the Big Apple. Most of the fiduciary enterprises are located on Wall Street.
