Awarded “Event Site of the Year” by Event Solutions Magazine in 2003, Metropolitan Pavilion is where events make history. From the Chocolate Show to the launch of Oprah Winfrey’s magazine, the Pavilion has emerged as one of downtown’s top event spaces. The main hall has elegant polished oak floors highlighted by charming Corinthian columns, original to the turn-of-the-century building, which lend a texture of rich character creatively offset by two separate lobbies. The inviting South Lobby possesses a crisp, contemporary look, complete with bright mint-green terrazzo floors that sparkle with inlaid seashells, high white walls and burnished silver accents. A sophisticated gateway, the stylish North Lobby blends vintage industrial loft elements with modern effects. These include pinpoint spots which shine over diaphanous metal scrims. The entire ensemble is seemingly cocooned within an atmosphere of blue and gray hues. For more intimate affairs, Metropolitan Pavilion offers their pristine upper-story Gallery. With windows located on three sides, the multi-functional space allows for sun-bathed daytime events or nightly urbane city views. The stunning white-polished, high-gloss of its clean resin floors resembles poured milk and guarantees that every event sparkles. With an Art Deco exterior facing downtown and a glorious Beaux Arts exterior facing uptown, Metropolitan Pavilion is surrounded by the finest boutiques, art galleries, retail shopping and nightlife that New York City has to offer. With its combination of unbridled flexibility and style, Metropolitan Pavilion is unrivaled, one of the City’s most versatile and reliable event spaces for gala benefits, corporate dinners, fashion shows, cocktail receptions, wine tastings, product launches and media events.
