Many elements go into planning a successful event, but the venue you select is the most important. The venue is more than just a place to hold your event. It is a space for gathering, celebrating, and feeling at ease. Your venue's location, amenities, and capacity are all factors that should be considered when booking your event. When all the elements of a good venue align, it can make your event stand out. But missing just one piece can make or break an event, so choose carefully.

Here are some keys to look out for when selecting an event venue.


How easy is it to access your venue? Is it centrally located with nearby parking, and does it have it accessible by taxi or shuttle service? Are there nearby hotels and airports? All of these factors should be considered when choosing your venue. After all, the more accessible your venue is, the higher your turnout will likely have.

At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we are conveniently located in downtown Tribeca, with nearby parking garage access. Our venue has handicap access, including a ramp and elevator service for your guests' convenience.

Space and Capacity

When selecting your event space, be sure it has enough room to hold all of your guests, decor, and entertainment. An event space that is too small will make your guests feel uncomfortable and crowded, while a too-big space can discourage conversation and make your guests feel disconnected. You can also let your decor help you create a more intimate atmosphere or create the illusion of more space.

At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, our Rooftop venue is 14,000 square feet, while our interior space boasts 15,000 square feet, including our iconic dancefloor. This size is perfect for up to 325 guests for an indoor wedding, 300 for a rooftop wedding, or 720 for a cocktail reception, perfect for a corporate event, social event, or wedding.

Furthermore, our 360° venue offers space for 175 to 400 guests, or 720 guests for cocktails. With 17,000 square feet of usable space and 12-foot ceilings, there is ample room for your guests and decor. We even have pin spotlights so you can feature decor or other elements of your event.


Let your theme help guide you to what type of venue you select, but don't discount the power of decor and AV effects. Even the most metropolitan venue can be transformed into a secret garden with the right details.

Safety and Security

Your guest's safety is paramount to you, so hosting your event at a secure building is a must. At Tribeca Rooftop +360° in NYC, we offer door service to our guests to help ensure safety and security and make you and your guests feel like VIPs.

Costs and Fees

While a significant portion of your event budget may be allocated to the venue of your choice, make sure your venue fits your budget. You want to avoid having to cut details from another element of your event to cover the cost of your venue, so be sure to get a total of all fees upfront before booking your event venue.

Venue Reputation

The reputation of your venue matters, too. You want to select a venue with a good relationship with local photographers, florists, and other vendors and a good reputation among other patrons. Taking a gamble on a venue with a less-than-stellar reputation to save a few dollars can cost you.

In Conclusion

While there are many things to consider when selecting a venue, these key elements are an excellent springboard for finding the space you need for your event.
