Known as one of the finest banquet halls in all of Queens, Antun’s offers a setting that is at once glamorous and versatile. In the 1940’s, this impressive facility was a modest hotel that was built out by the Antun family. After Mr. Antun passed away, he gifted his treasured establishment to his general manager and long-time friend, Mr. King, who has painstakingly renovated the space to create the stunning facility that is available to brides and grooms today. Over the last half a century, Antun’s has hosted a number of high profile, celebrity nuptials, including events for the Clintons and Kennedys among others. Ultimately, when you hold your wedding at this gracious banquet hall, you are entrusting your big day to a venue with a longstanding tradition of personalized service and unrivaled hospitality.
Antun’s classic entrance will immediately greet guests with the sight of welcoming dark wood double doors and flourishing flowerbeds that hint at the enchanting gardens surrounding the building. Envision making a grand entrance to your ceremony as you descend the outdoor staircase into the secluded Montauk Gardens, the bottom of your dream wedding gown gliding over an aisle of brick as you make your way through the courtyard to meet your beloved beneath a charming pavilion. Your guests will watch from the lush green lawn as you exchange vows, the breeze ruffling through the surrounding trees and blooming foliage nearby. The luminous Empire Chapel offers the ideal indoor alternative for saying your “I do’s” beneath a flower-laden archway. Walls draped with sumptuous white fabrics and colored with glowing lights personalize the space and create an aura of incomparable luxury. After reciting your vows, sip on tall flutes of champagne in the lobby, a warm and welcoming pre-function space complete with natural stone walls and a crackling fireplace. Gorgeous wall coverings, expansive dance floors, and glittering crystal chandeliers are essential components of Antun’s six elegant banquet halls — all ideal for celebrating your union in true style. Each of these sophisticated spaces can accommodate wedding parties of various sizes, whether you are hosting an intimate dinner with close family or a grand affair with over 500 guests. Combining a timeless sense of style with experienced wedding coordinators, a world class serving staff, and catering options fit for royalty, Antun’s provides the quintessential banquet hall setting for your big day in Queens!
