A Wedding Reception Setting Like No Other

Highlawn Pavilion’s elegant banquet space is set on the top floor of this historic structure, which itself stands at the crest of Eagle Rock Reservation, surrounded by over 400 acres of nature preserve and parkland. The Pavilion Room offers Highlawn’s grandest bird’s-eye views of the striking Manhattan skyline and looks out over all of the surrounding towns below. As guests enter from our elevator or pass our massive ornate bronze and crystal chandelier as they ascend the grand staircase, the reveal of The Pavilion Room, with the skyline in the distance, makes for an unforgettable first impression.

With the room’s table layout specifically set across the span of the eastern exposure, sweeping panoramic views of New York City can be seen from every table through the room’s oversized windows. Every guest is ensured a good seat. As night sets and the skyline begins to sparkle, the view acts as yet another part of the décor, creating a sophisticated and impressive ambiance–the backdrop for your unmistakably unique celebration.

Dance the Night Away

The Pavilion Room features a beautiful extended dance floor, whose layout was specially-designed to draw all your guests over to the center of the action and get them up to dance when it’s time to get the party started. Unlike other venues, the arrangement of The Pavilion room also allows you to seat guests who are less inclined to enjoy the more boisterous music to still have a good time throughout the night, sharing conversation without the typical worry that other venues have of seating your guests too close the band or DJ.

Situated at the head of the dance floor is the couple’s sweetheart table, in prime position, making you the center of attention and putting the newly married couple in the middle if it all.

Your guests will be equally situated on both sides of you, ensuring your table seating arrangements are much more straightforward.  You’ll also be at the head of the dance floor with your band or DJ playing on the opposite end facing you; your own front row seat to the music and dancing. With the beautiful skyline views as your backdrop, you’re in perfect position for even the most candid of photos.  As the focal point of the room, you’ll be sure not to miss a moment of the once-in-a-lifetime events of your special day.
