While we know how important it is to reopen our physical location, we also understand the unprecedented challenges we are facing.

As such, with the safety of our house staff and patrons as our first priority, we are currently unable to confirm rental bookings for large groups at this time. We are working in collaboration with NYC Parks guidelines to thoughtfully develop a plan to resume rentals at our site.

We will continuously monitor the situation and keep you informed as our reopening plans develop. If you would like to be added to our contact list, please fill out our rental inquiry form HERE.

We understand that every rentals is unique and encourage you to reach out and set up a phone call so we can address your request personally. To do so, please email
