The Housing Works Bookstore Venue is one of the most sought-after locations in New York City for private parties, corporate events, and filmings.

With its mahogany-paneled bookcases, high ceilings, expansive second floor balcony, festoon lighting, and convenient Soho location, our 3,000 square foot library setting has hosted international fashion designers, major university benefits, and discerning wedding couples. These clients have chosen this extraordinary space as the backdrop for everything from exclusive cocktail parties to elegant dinners for up to 200 guests. Our professional and experienced event staff is committed to making your event an unforgettable evening.
 

“I love working with the Housing Works team. As a wedding planner, I have experience in a variety of venues, but nothing really compares to Housing Works. For starters, the space is iconic New York. It has this charm and coziness that is always sought after, but hard to find. In addition, working with the team is one of the best experiences. Housing Works is top notch with its aesthetic, professionalism and overall a joy to work with. I always say, I wish I could work here every weekend.”

— Brittney Bartling, Event Planner/ @blb_events Founder

“Our guests were blown away by the setting and the venue staff were amazing. They didn’t just make everything run beautifully and smoothly, they actually shared in our joy.”

— Jess B.
