7 Modern Spaces in New York City

New York is known for many things: the iconic Statue of Liberty, its glittering Broadway theatres and the famous Central Park. But what we love about the city that never sleeps is the events. Events in New York are cutting edge and futuristic – unlike any other in the world. To celebrate these incredible events, we have put together a list showcasing some of our favourite modern spaces in NYC.

  1. Capsule Studio, Flatiron

Get inspired with this cool event space in NYC. The bright white cyclorama centre piece gives the space a never-ending depth and can be transformed to host any event, from fashion shows to cocktail parties. With its high ceilings, mezzanine and superb location (just a stone’s throw from the iconic Flatiron building and the Union Square Greenmarket), you can see why industry giants such as Twitter, Tom Ford and American Express hold their events in this modern New York space.

2. Supercharge Venue, Manhattan

Located on the banks of the Hudson in the Financial District, this modern space in NYC gives an unrivalled view of the stunning sunsets over the river and is a beautiful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the neighbourhood. The plush 7,500 square feet venue, fitted with luxurious marble and brass décor, is perfect for corporate parties and events – to complement this cool New York event space there are two further VIP meeting rooms.

3. National Sawdust, Williamsburg

The name of this extraordinary modern NYC space comes from its roots. Originally a sawdust factory, this futuristically cool event space now dedicates itself to music discovery. This high-tech space is kitted out with state-of-the-art lighting and sound technology – combine this with the space’s completely unique spider web design, and you have yourself an unforgettable and phenomenal event.

4. Flatiron Penthouse, Flatiron

The Flatiron Penthouse is a real treat. Spread over two floors, the modern space in NYC comes with a built-in bar, the latest audio-visual technology and even an outdoor rooftop terrace. This space oozes industrial hipster vibes with the stripped back statement brick wall and the modern furnishings. We love the homely feel of the penthouse, bringing a cool yet comfortable atmosphere to your event.

5. 263 Bowery, Bowery

This popup gallery, with its expansive windows looking out onto the busy  high street bordering Lower East Side and NoLita, will not only wow guests, but also window-shoppers passing by. The spacious interior, with its modern and bright white design, is sure to bring elegance and flair to any event. Whether you are hosting a popup retail shop, an art exhibition or product promotion, in this cool NYC event space, it will be hard to forget. 

6. 26 Bridge, Dumbo

We love this cool venue in New York’s most eclectic and dynamic neighbourhood, Brooklyn, which captivates guests with its refreshing contemporary style and industrial urban charm. The exposed metal beams and planked wood floors provide a stunning contrast against delicate fairy lights and flourishes of greenery – simple but effective additions that transform this loft into a magical and modern New York City space.

7. Waterfront Space, Williamsburg

Our second waterfront space takes us over the river to Williamsburg, the hipster-chic neighbourhood in Brooklyn. This industrial NYC event space, with plenty of natural light, has impressive and unobstructed views of the city. Soak up the skyline in the sofa area, brainstorm on the benches or knuckle down in the glass-enclosed space – this cool event space in New York has got it all.
