Getting hitched? That's so great! We love weddings more than cake. We've played host to everything from rock 'n' roll receptions in the Underground to classic outdoor ceremonies on the Sky Yard. We offer really friendly hotel rates for visiting family + friends and take care of all décor and catering details, including the option for custom bake sales and fresh flowers. We're not meaning to gloat, but we really are a one-stop shop when it comes to your big day.
Thanks for everything last night, we’ve been getting rave reviews all morning – everyone loved the venue, food, entertainment so I just wanted to pass that on!

Thank you so much for a fantastic overnight stay at the Drake! From the moment we walked in, Faisal and I were welcomed with open arms. I know that you were all expecting us, but it was so great that you recognized us before we even said our names. You did such a fantastic job at our wedding and it was so nice to see you again and for you to remember us. Everyone, from the guy at the front desk, to the hostess at dinner, welcomed us back and wished us a happy anniversary.
We had afternoon snacks, drinks and dinner in the Sky Yard. The food, cocktails and service were wonderful. Brunch in the morning in the Cafe was delish as well. But, above everything else, it's the people and the excellent service that makes the Drake a great place to celebrate. We had such a wonderful and romantic time. It really made us remember everything that made our wedding celebration so special and perfect - which, in large part, was due to your amazing staff.
I certainly think that we have started a tradition of celebrating our anniversary at the Drake every year!
Once again, thank you so much for everything you did to make both our wedding, and our anniversary so wonderful.

I can't begin to fully tell you how happy we were with the event the other day. Thanks to you in particular, and your whole team... Tracey and I felt it was a stupendous success, owing to the great planning you did, the great menu, fantastic drinks, decor, setting, music and the very fine and friendly serving staff. All the family and friends have been saying what a great space it was, and how the event itself was so enjoyable, the food and drinks superb, the ambiance and decor, and the gracious ways in which everything was served and delivered. It could not have been better!
It was a great pleasure working with you on all this, Dave, you were an absolute professional, and yet it never felt like we were doing 'business', it was just planning a great event together, like being family.
I absolutely loved staying at the Drake as a guest as well, the room was wonderful, I began to feel like I lived there, coming down in the mornings or heading out in the afternoon or evening and whoever was at the desk, or on security, or at the concierge station, always a smile and an exchange of a bit of chat.
Oh and for sure looking forward to the next time I can stay with you all at the Drake, most definitely, I'll be booking in with you folks again.. and again...and again...
