There are many places to host holiday parties, from a living room to the board room. And then there is the landmark India House Club. The club, which resides at One Hanover Square, has seen its share of gatherings throughout the years. Many statesmen have been members of India House, including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Hopkins, Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Henry Cabot Lodge and Cyrus Vance.
The club’s history can be seen on its walls, as it boasts one of the finest marine art collections in the world, including ship models and engravings. India House was constructed by the builder Richard Carman some time after the fire of 1835, in the style of a Renaissance palazzo, residential palaces of Italian banking families.
The same space that has hosted celebrities and statesmen is available for private parties, such as holiday gatherings, weddings, business lunches, or conferences. Their single-room facilities can accommodate groups of 5 to 300 guests for celebrations or business events and the entire space can accommodate up to 1,000 guests for large receptions.
