SKY Armory

Finger Lakes



SKY Armory offers three floors of urban, chic event space located in historic Armory Square in the heart of downtown Syracuse, NY. We designed our space to be a blank canvas with the primary intention of offering endless possibilities to create an experience that fully reflects our clients' style and personality.

Imagine...glittering city lights and showstopping architecture that features a mix of metropolitan sophistication and a bit of edge. A location that is tucked away like a beautiful secret amid the dynamic downtown energy. As you enter the alley, you are greeted by the sounds of a street musician. Translucent doors swing open and doormen usher you into the soaring glass-walled grand entrance and greet you with a glass of bubbly. An elevator operator takes you to the designated floor, where you are met by greeters who welcome and unwrap you, checking coats and sweeping you toward the main event.

Doors open. You stop. Your breath catches and your heart beats faster. This is the moment when you are truly blown away by everything that is SKY Armory.

Amazing ambience. Undeniable style. Complete customization. Extraordinary food and beverages. Impeccable service. A simple planning process. Endless amenities. True "wow" factor...

You can expect all of this when you chose to party in the SKY.
