The McKinley

Finger Lakes



With the sophisticated interior look of New York City and the accessibility of a small town, The McKinley is the area’s premier banquet facility. A 1,200 square foot sunken, wooden dance floor and balcony provide ample room for movement and flow, while a twenty-five-foot sky-lighted ceiling, stylish textures, and multi-level interior create an intimate ambiance for conversation. A spacious dining room encircles the dance floor, offering guests 360 degree views of the evening’s revelry, including the newlyweds’ first dance. Breathtaking large bowl chandeliers and columns add further interest and architectural detail to the room. Resting in the footprint of innovation, this exceptional space sits near the birthplace of IBM at the former IBM Cafe, and its seasoned culinary chefs and wait staff are committed to making your wedding day a memorable one.
