A longstanding resident in lower Manhattan, the historic-landmarked India House boasts over 150 years of history as a gathering place for world leaders in commerce and politics. Today, it maintains its exclusive status as a private club while frequently playing host to some of New York’s finest celebrations, including weddings. The location at 1 Hanover Square also houses India House’s partner and catering extraordinaire, Masterpiece Caterers. With India House being the company’s first exclusive downtown New York venue, Masterpiece Caterers offers exquisite service, classic American fare, and expertly crafted cocktails for weddings in New York.
Built in the style of a Renaissance palazzo, the mansion stands as a statuesque, distinguishable figure between Pearl and Stone streets. And despite its grand façade, a step beyond the doors reveals a warm, welcoming, and elegant lobby—an impression that rings throughout the rest of the mansion. And if there’s one other thing that remains constant, it’s the remarkable collection of artwork that adorns the hallways, stairways, and rooms across the three floors of the venue! Wedding ceremonies and receptions at India House typically unfold in one of the larger rooms, but the 3rd floor was recently renovated to host smaller, more intimate weddings. In the Hanover Room, large windows break up the rich crimson walls and wood floors are paired with ornate rugs. The magnificent Marine Ballroom features a round skylight and architectural details that relate to marine life and seafaring, as well as special lighting that makes the room come alive in the evening. A bold cocktail can be discovered in the equally bold Blue Room, a memorable space for cocktail hour and photographs.
