  • The stunning May Room includes an original fireplace and window frames from 1892 along with elegant radiators, modeled after the original design from that same opening year. Through a set of French doors, the May Room flows out onto a 5,000-square-foot rooftop terrace, a feature first envisioned by the building’s original architect, William Burnet Tuthill, now reimagined for the 21st century. The terrace offers a sweeping view of Central Park and overlooks the intersection of 57th Street and Seventh Avenue.

    Featuring customized seasonal tasting menus, the May Room can accommodate a dramatic King’s table or classic round table seating formations. Contact us to learn more.

    *Reduced room rental rates available during off-peak months (July, August, January, February)

  • Access

    Event attendees will enter the building via 881 Seventh Avenue, where an express elevator will take them to the May Room on the 9th floor. Entering the space from the south, guests are encouraged to check their coat in the Lounge, immediately adjacent to the May Room. May Room guests have full or shared access to the rooftop terrace.
