The Otto Kahn Mansion 1 East 91st Street
There is an intimate feeling held within the grandeur of the Otto Kahn Mansion. This impressive building offers three charming rooms perfect for entertaining a small number of guests.
The newly refurbished assembly hall, designed with an Adam ceiling and fireplace, is trimmed in gold and has outstanding acoustics. A beautifully restored inlaid parquet floor and grand crystal chandelier are complementary and create a most elegant atmosphere.
Adjacent to the assembly hall, the grey stone foyer has a striking fireplace and coffered ceilings. Here you'll find an ideal background for a luncheon or cocktail party. The view of the courtyard through the tall pained glass windows expands the foyer and offers a brilliant surrounding.
The view of Central Park makes our courtyard a desired location for any outdoor event. The limestone simplicity is elegant and comfortably holds 100 guests. This open-air location may be rented in addition to either mansion.
The James Burden Mansion 7 East 91st Street
To experience the James Burden Mansion is to go back in time. The marble walls, sculpted ceilings, and spiral staircase remind us of the golden age. In these rooms, your event will be unforgettable.
Look up and a striking ceiling reveals a stained glass skylight surrounded by a breathtaking mural. Maroon velvet railings lead guests up three impressive flights of grand marble. Three glorious rooms designed for lavish entertaining wait at the top.
Upon arriving you will be drawn to the reception room by the music of the Steinway grand piano. This centered room welcomes in a distinguished fashion while directing travel between the banquet hall and ballroom with ease.
The banquet hall is elegant and notable. Viridian green marble walls make a stark contrast to the achromatic white moldings along the ceiling edge. Each detail is poignant and each accent is distinct.
Through tall mirrored doors stands the ballroom overlooking 91st street and the Cooper Hewitt Museum. The marble room has polished herringbone parquet and a stunning fireplace as a focal centerpiece of the room. Cherubs round the Baroque ceiling and make this room undeniably remarkable.
