Private Clubs as wedding locations

Check with your various memberships, alumni organizations, and other work or career affiliates. You may have access to private facilities in New York which can host a small wedding. NYU affiliates may use the Torch Club in Soho, which is a lovely place for a wedding. Some quirky associations which may not seem obvious as first make great wedding spots. The Salmagundi Art Club on 5th Avenue was used for a wedding last year, and the drinks reception was in the gallery. A perfect spot, and very 'old new york'. Enquire delicately.
It's not a club, but Scandinavia House has meeting rooms and a small library on Park Avenue which overlooks the street. Very modern, of course. It appeals to my Danish roots. And catering can be arranged - lovely meatballs and aquavit!
The Gay and Lesbian Center in Greenwich village is housed in a lovely brownstone. Their meeting booking rates are VERY reasonable.
