THE FRICK COLLECTION
Have your reception surrounded by memorable art and you’ll take your event to another level of sophistication.
For the well heeled, The Frick Collection is a beautiful venue that feels like the private home it once was, while retaining aspects of the Gilded Age from when it was erected. Which day of the week you can have your event depends on your level of patronage, so those desiring a Friday or Saturday night affair should be prepared to pony up $45,000 to rent The Frick, exclusive of the fees for the celebration itself. (Twirl Tip: The Frick does not allow ceremonies here, regardless of affiliation, so know if you’re considering this venue it’s only for the reception).
In various configurations, the Frick can accommodate up to 500 people for cocktails and 200 for dinner. For those who want guests to experience the Frick’s preeminent art collection over cocktails, there is no other place with the charm, appeal or atmosphere than this preeminent space. Prices start at $275 plus tax and service charges, per person.
