Timeless


Immortal beauty sweeps a New York landmark.


Mirroring a love that is everlasting, Gotham Hall endures the test of time. An iconic presence in Midtown Manhattan, the exalted and immaculate structure marvels with distinction from every angle. Boundless beauty radiates from within, where luxurious accents encompass exquisite grace.


Formerly the home of the Greenwich Savings Bank, Gotham Hall was constructed in 1924 and designed with ancient Roman architectural principles and subtle inscriptions. Throughout its seven-storied edifice, enchanting details await discovery. A portrait of striking sophistication, uncover the revelation of infinite style.

The Exterior

On Broadway, at the corner of 36th Street in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, Gotham Hall stands out with stately prominence amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City. Arched windows and illuminated columns beam with pride and historical significance. Before it, a 1956 Ford Fairlane convertible from M&V Limo, dazzles with vintage character. An A-line organic floral lace gown featuring a V-illusion neckline and long applique sleeves designed by Pnina Tornai for Kleinfeld, stops traffic as onlookers revel its beauty. A dapper custom tuxedo by Raftis Bespoke adds a gentlemanly polish to the quintessential New York scene.


The Grand Ballroom

The heart of Gotham Hall resides in the Grand Ballroom, at the epicenter of brilliance. Exuding nobility and glory in its 9,000 square feet of eminent event space, a newly laid floor captures admiring eyes with geometric bolts driving to the radial point. At its nucleus, ivory beaded accents and textured embroidery caress Kristabelle, a fitted long sleeve gown with a plunging off-the-shoulder neckline designed by Morilee by Madeline Gardner. Gracing the RK Bridal mélange, a cathedral train and hemline surrounded by a waterfall of feathers embodies the illustrious surroundings of the ballroom. A regal tiara by Bridal Styles Boutique fit for a queen, paired with a classic diamond studded earring and necklace laid upon the collarbone by London Jewelers completes the oval royal stage.

The Mezzanine

Overlooking the majestic Grand Ballroom, the Mezzanine soars from above with dramatic grandeur, framed by floor-to-ceiling Corinthian columns, two-story arched windows, a gilded honeycombed ceiling, and expansive views of the surrounding opulence. Echoing its lavish abundance and imperial refinement, Simone, a soft mermaid gown designed by Galia Lahav, artfully drapes delicate silk tulle, and casts shimmer upon its embroidered pearls and sequins. A gem among the Bridal Reflections reserve, the jewel of the Fancy White collection is made to form. A sparkling headpiece comb from Bridal Styles Boutique and glistening diamond cuff and earrings from London Jewelers balance the sweetheart neckline, flowing skirt, and sheer cape.

The Dome

Hovering above 17,500 square feet of space, a 70-foot ceiling with an ornate stained glass skylight captivates from the aerial plane across 3,000 square feet. Intricate textures and empowered scriptures glisten the auriferous embossed sphere. Ethereal beauty basks from the vantage point, absorbing heightened splendors upon a transcendent A-line couture gown by Birenzweig, procurable from the fine collections of Wedding Atelier. Darling in its structured sweetheart neckline, pearls playfully trail to a fine bow at the waistline. Exquisite draping complemented by sparkling strands of diamonds by London Jewelers inspire breathtaking awe. A shimmering hairpin by Bridal Styles Boutique extends a touch of glamour and whimsy to complete the vision. A classic peak lapel on the custom-tailored tuxedo from Raftis Bespoke counters the classic bride with dapper urbanity.

The Oak Room

Wooden paneled walls and hand-cut dentil molding reflect a dignified tone within the cultivating quarters of the Oak Room. An original ornamental fireplace and hand-forged wrought-iron window grates accentuate the authenticity of the hand-blown glass windowpanes overlooking Broadway. Distinguished and stately, the Oak Room’s charm echoes with romance as Jahmilla by Yumi Katsura for Designer Loft, embraces Italian-tulle with an embellished overlay, and a modern deep-V bodice and plunging V-back. Glistening golden accents from London Jewelers and Bridal Styles Boutique harmonize the oak touches and warm hues of the intimate space.

The Vault

Nestled beneath the ballroom, the Vault is one of many hidden treasures to be found inside Gotham Hall. Robust and enigmatic, as the source of riches and pride, its fixtures stand with as an architectural masterpiece. The Vault is an esteemed groundwork where tastings and intimate gatherings draw wonder and inspiration. Alluring as the safe’s finishes, a scintillating GALA by Galia Lahav gown from Bridal Reflections stands among the Collection No. IX, seductively featuring an off-the-shoulder plunging V-neckline and elegant wrap design with a high side slit and long sleeves crafted of sheer and shimmery silver glass beads and sequin embroidery.
