Can anyone recommend an affordable event space in Manhattan? Trying to plan a small wedding and lots of places are just too big/expensive. Looking for a space for 50 guests for a meal plus a dance floor. Thanks for any suggestions!

Affordable and Manhattan are two words that almost never mix well.

That’s why I clarified with the price range. There are few places where 3K to rent a room would be considered affordable, but that’s what we’re aiming for. Really just looking for recs for a smallish but not super small event space.

Do it at home or in a garden, every space is expensive. We wanted to book a bar for a bridal shower for two hours and it was extremely overpriced. Our friends’ parents ended up hosting.

I don’t have access to a home that can hold that many people. I know it’s going to be overpriced, but I’m hoping to keep it under 3K for the space (not counting food and alcohol, just the space). I’m seeing a lot of places that are too small or too big.

If you're not 100% tied to Manhattan, we looked at Kings County Distilling in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and it looked awesome/was pretty affordable.

Thanks for the suggestion! We need to stay in Manhattan due to various logistical issues, but we’ve decided to raise our budget a little bit. Found a few possibilities but still getting quotes.

Found a most enlightening work on decolonial history with tons of TIL moments especially about Anti Colonial movements in Egypt, China, Japan and course India in the 19th and 20th centuries. Most histories this period often adopt a Euro-centric lens but this book flips it and tells the stories of these turbulent times from the vantage point of the pioneering Asian leaders like Tagore, Al Afghani, Kang Youwei etc. Lovers of Asian history would surely appreciate this book

Planning to buy a watch around under $5k range and looking for some advice as I have never bought expensive watches before. (1) What website/stores are good from both price/ authenticity point of view ? (2) Are their some particular watches that will retain their prices relatively better ? Not really buying for investment but would prefer to buy a watch which can be easily resold with somewhat decent retention rate just in case if the need ever comes up. Thanks
