Inside Scoop

Maison May also operates a european style Cafe just around the corner from the Brownstone, at 270 Vanderbilt Avenue. The cafe is open 8-4pm everyday and the menu is executed by the same culinary team, making it a great way for curious hosts to sneak a peak into the culinary sensibilities of the team. Like the brownstone, service is included in all pricing, so tipping is neither expected or encouraged. The space is also screen free- offering guests a refuge from hyper plugged-in coffee shop culture for a truly relaxing experience centered around community and connection.

Venue Features
The Scene:
The space is ideal for weddings of 45-75 guests, where the party can have full, private use of the brownstone. This allows for a truly unique experience, providing guests the opportunity to float through the entire space as if being hosted in an elegant family residence. 

The Garden offers a serene spot for a charming outdoor ceremony right in the middle of New York City, which can be followed by a Parlor Cocktail Hour, and then dinner situated in the main dining room and in the outdoor Garden. After the meal, guests can choose to relax in the open air, dance the night away upstairs in the Parlor, or have a relaxed chat in the Main Dining Room.

Maison May is an ideal location for smaller weddings as well. For intimate weddings of 10-40 guests, Maison May offers an outside Garden or indoor Parlor ceremony followed by a cocktail hour and seated, family style meal in the Parlor, where guests can enjoy good food, good wine, and good company in an elegant setting. 

The Parlor Space, white washed with original brownstone details is the perfect space for a baby or bridal shower brunch. The space is perfect for groups of 25-40 guests seated at 1-4 long tables. The monochromatic color scheme - white walls, white chairs, white linens- makes the space a elegant on it's own, but also incredibly easy to customize with light floral and other personal touches. The space has a small ancillary bar area which is perfect for welcoming guests upon arrival, as well as opening gifts later in the event.

Hosting guests in New York can be an ordeal, but at Maison May you are invited to make our home your own. The backyard is a unique private oasis in the middle of the city, where you can host a garden party in the warmer months. A cocktail soiree or a seated brunch or dinner, there is no wrong answer in this lovely open air space, which is ideal for parties of up to 32 seated guests (more for cocktail style receptions).

The Brownstone retains many original features from its elegant hayday.The all-white Parlor features gorgeous crown moldings and elegant sliding double doors, with glass featurettes. The Garden showcases a gray stone floor, a big beautiful tree that provides shade from the sun, and is surrounded by lush greenery in the summer months. The Main Dining Room, just inside, is thoughtfully decorated with hand-picked vintage french homewares; bare-wood tables and cross-back chairs cozy up to a linen banquette, and white brick walls frame two massive fireplaces that make for excellent focal points. Artistically distressed interior elements, original wall cutouts, and tiny nooks provide interesting features throughout.
