The Altman Building is a historic landmark and a premiere venue in the heart of Chelsea. Established in 1896 as the carriage house for the B. Altman Department store, The Altman Building is now a private versatile event venue emanating old world charm and boasting 13,500 square feet over two floors.

Our original, double hinged mahogany French doors, connect directly to the street to allow for easy ground-level load-in and a breathtaking entrance for guests. Upon entering the space, clients are greeted with exposed vaulted brick ceilings, natural oak hardwood floors, and floor to ceiling bay windows that provide the space with a cascade of natural light.

The unparalleled ambiance of The Altman Building allows transformation to be as limitless as your imagination. Enjoy the convenience and luxury of having our entire space yours for the day. Our beautiful first floor is virtually column free, allowing for any ceremony set up of your choice. After ceremony, guests are escorted downstairs for a cocktail hour while the main floor gets transformed into your reception space.

Ideal wedding capacity for The Altman Building is 225 for a wedding with a ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We also specialize in up to 550 person “cocktail-style” wedding receptions.
