Espace, a 10,000-sq.-ft. event space, has opened in midtown Manhattan.
Located in the Atelier Tower, on West 42nd Street, Espace features a pre-function room of 2,500 sq. ft., adjacent to a 6,500-sq.-ft. ballroom. The venue offers a capacity of 1,000, including a capacity of 500 for seated dinners and 400 for dinner and dancing, and is outfitted with onsite valet parking, a dancefloor and a separate reception room.
Moreover, Espace was built with T1 wireless Internet access, a premiere sound system by BML Blackbird, walls that double as a projection screen, doors wide enough to accommodate a car and steel beams strong enough to hang a car.
Executive chef Jason Munger oversees a New American menu that includes authentic kosher cuisine.
