Schiff Family Great Hall

This spacious hall, reflective of timeless architecture, was fully renovated and is New York’s first green and LEED-certified historic landmark building. Previous to this, the hall was the original Lion House.
Now, guests can sip cocktails in our Madagascar exhibit alongside lemurs, Nile crocodiles, and other curious creatures, or mingle with your guests outside with our California sea lions, followed by fine dining in the Schiff Family Great Hall.
The hall can accommodate 400 theater style, cocktails for 300, 250 for a plated affair, or 200 seated with a dance floor or buffets; and comes equipped with AV options.
Additional Lion Terrace runs parallel to the building for a private, outdoor patio for you and your guests to enjoy. Life sized lion statues included!
