Testimonials at Espace Event Venue in New York Skip navigation


Dear Barry,

No words spoken or written can fully convey the gratitude I feel toward you for bringing the fullness of your heart and skills to last night’s event. You went far beyond what should have been expected of you. You are an amazing leader and a pleasure to work with.

I didn’t get a morsel of food, but my friends did. Oprah, Gayle, Common, my son-in-love, Bernard King, the congressional reps, mayors, the models and just plain folks raved about the great food and service.

Especially thank the chef. My husband’s people are New Orleanians, and baby, they’re not even interested in tasting gumbo made by anyone not from home. But after tasting the many other offerings, they decided to try the gumbo. “Authentic!  “Magnificent!!!” Were their words.

So the client is satisfied! Isn’t that a joy in the service sector, where we count on others to represent us well. Thank your welcoming well-trained staff for me. Thank them as I thank you for a job well done!

Here’s wishing you and the Espace family a happy holiday season.

What an event! My clients are so ecstatic about their daughters Bat Mitzvah celebration. Everything was perfect. The staff was exceptional, professional, attentive and completely on their game. The food was unbelievable. The guests loved the lobster appetizer and couldn’t get over how amazing the food was. Someone even mentioned that it was like dining in a 5 star restaurant!

Your attention to every detail Barry was truly appreciated. It was wonderful to work with a true expert on all the aspects of the event. You were the driving force behind all the planning and execution and it was perfect.
Espace is one of the most exciting venues I have worked in for years.

The innovative lighting and wall creations is the perfect effect to raise the bar on any party. I was able to utilize the special lights and gobos throughout the evening to create a crescendo of energy throughout the night.

I cannot wait to bring another party to your space as it is a sure winner all the way!
Thanks for making my experience and my clients event so wonderful.

I can’t thank you enough for making the Gross’ B’nai Mitzvah Party such a huge success.  Mrs. Gross, Allison and Daniel called me yesterday to tell me what an amazing time they had.  Mrs. Gross couldn’t say enough wonderful things about you, the food, service, and overall aesthetics of Espace…everything was perfect!

Just a note to say thanks for all your help with the BET Film Meets Fashion Event, you were fantastic and the venue was wonderful. I will be back with another client soon!

I will leave it to my gorgeous and wonderful wife to make the official acknowledgment but I didn’t want the weekend to end without telling you how impressed I was with your staff last night. Everyone was enthusiastic, a real yes can do approach; their attitude made the evening so much fun. I know that this kind of energy is set from the top, and, this applies to the kitchen staff that I couldn’t even see! The food served was every bit as good as the tasting which I thought wasn’t possible. Thanks for making her bat mitzvah so special.  Feel free to use us as a reference.”
