Venue Rental

Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is the quintessential New York venue— a generous space in a historic, beautifully renovated building located in popular and vibrant SoHo. With 20-foot ceilings, spiral staircases and mahogany- paneled balconies and bookshelves, this space lends style and sophistication to any event and is a key destination on New York’s literary circuit. The Bookstore Cafe is an ideal setting for everything from company holiday parties to weddings, from book releases to photography and film shoots.
