Looking for a unique place to tie the knot—someplace groovy, perhaps a little out of the ordinary, not a generic hotel ballroom, but a special spot that truly has its own style? Or maybe you’ve always dreamed of declaring your love outdoors, under the boughs of a tree, knowing your guests are about to dine on the bounty of an organic garden that is literally just steps away? What if you could have both?
The restaurant’s Googie architecture is a favorite of brides and grooms looking for a mid-century modern vibe to set their wedding setting apart from the norm. Park Ave. also boasts its own private park and garden, offering plenty of perfect spots on which to place a chuppah, and an abundance of space where energetic flower girls and ring-bearer boys can run free.
Executive chef David Slay, acclaimed for his modern interpretations of classic American cuisine, works closely with each couple to design a menu—buffet or sit-down meal—to meet any budget.
Slay and the staff of Park Ave. have accommodated wedding parties of 200 people, but are also happy to host more intimate gatherings of only 45. Indoors, Park Ave.’s main dining room seats 70 and its garden room seats 80. Outdoors, the restaurant can provide seating for an additional 50 people in its garden.
Brides and grooms get ready for the big day amid the old-Hollywood glamour of one of the restaurant’s powder rooms, or the staff can easily convert one of the garden buildings to a more ample dressing room for bridal preparations.
Indeed, the excellent customer service that Park Ave. provides on a daily basis carries over seamlessly to its wedding hosting. The executive chef, sous chefs, and wait staff work together as a team to provide full-service wedding coordination; they help with everything from music and flowers to photographers, equipment rentals and more.
The restaurant schedules weddings up to one year in advance. For more information about Park Ave. weddings, to read more client testimonials, and to view photos from past ceremonies, visit Park Ave. Dining.
