The robust architecture of The Léman Ballroom allows us to accommodate an extraordinarily wide range of events – from personal celebrations and corporate launches to more unusual events. The Ballroom has played host to automobile launches, fashion shows, video shoots, trapeze acts, concerts, and even boxing matches – hosting televised events like "Friday Night Fights" boxing, and musical performances from the internationally broadcast series "Live from the Artists Den".

For seated dinners, the 5,700 square foot Ballroom can accommodate up to 330 guests, 470 for seated performances, and in cocktail settings, 500. Please visit The Space page for more information about our capabilities and additional spaces.

"As someone with more than two decades of event planning experience and having produced nearly 400 events globally, the team at the Ballroom has continually impressed me and made my New York events the smoothest of anywhere we operate. It is for that reason that the Ballroom has hosted more of our events than anyplace else we work. The staff are knowledgeable, supportive and professional and have a keen understanding of what it takes to support a well run event. We have worked with the Ballroom since 2006 and we are as happy with the venue and the team as we ever have been. I recommend anyone considering an event in New York consider working with the Leman Ballroom."

— Justin Blair, CEO, Henimo Group

Personal Celebrations

The Léman Ballroom is a stunning venue for milestone moments and celebrations. Rich with Classical Revival grandeur and late-1920s artistry, the ballroom can be customized for any celebration, including Weddings, Bridal Showers, Birthday parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and Retirement parties.

"Our foundation was lucky enough to host our event at the Ballroom in April 2019. The experienced and professional staff was extremely helpful and flexible as we had to change the date of our event a few times. They made the entire process a breeze from the initial booking through to the event day. The day of staff and contacts were reliable and helped us to actually enjoy our own event! The beautiful ballroom was the perfect place to host our event and we’ll definitely be coming back in the future!"

— United States Delegation, Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St. George

Community Events

The Léman Ballroom has been a longstanding part of the community since Lower Manhattan's rebirth. We welcome downtown community groups, employers, and children's educational and extracurricular organizations to experience The Ballroom. The Financial District is now one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Manhattan and we are proud to be the venue of choice for the increasing number of local community groups.

Since 2005, the building has been home to Léman Manhattan Preparatory School, which uses the ballroom as a community space for artistic performances and school celebrations. A building rooted in as much rich history as ours is an ideal learning environment. Every detail presents a learning opportunity. We especially welcome and invite children-oriented organizations to co-host their events with us.

"We have been hosting our music festival at the Leman Ballroom for the past few years and the experience has been nothing short of spectacular! Not only is the room amazing, but every person we have worked with has been so wonderful. We host a music festival for individuals with disabilities twice a year, and it is a pretty massive undertaking. The staff could not be more accommodating, kind and are always the consummate professionals, regardless of their level. We are grateful to have found a true partner in the Leman Ballroom which allows us to host an event to remember for our community, year after year. You would be hard pressed to find a better venue in NYC!"

— Carla Sullivan, Marketing & Diversity Awareness Director Daniel’s Music Foundation
