Reception Spaces

"The balcony reception area is really marvelous. Aside from greatly enhancing the connection of presenters with their audience in post-concert receptions, I think it creates a very positive connection with the hall itself."    - Presenter

Kaufman Center offers a variety of attractive spaces for pre- and post-concert receptions, banquets, smaller concerts, lectures and break-out groups.

A stylish space on Merkin Concert Hall's balcony level designed by Robert A.M. Stern, the Irving Posner and Herman Ackman Space is ideal for receptions, banquets and lectures. It can accommodate up to 220 guests for standing events and 100 for seated events. Dimensions: 25' x 60'

Adjacent to the Ann Goodman Recital Hall, the Mollie Goodman Gallery is excellent for post-concert receptions.


Kaufman Center does not have an exclusive caterer and welcomes your catering service. Any licensed and insured caterer is welcome to work at Kaufman Center. For your convenience, Kaufman Center can provide a list of caterers whom our clients have used at the venue. Find out more.
