When you walk through Grand Central Station in New York City, there is history everywhere around you. Shackman Associates New York has leveraged these amazing elements to produce major corporate galas at the terminal.
In 2018, Grand Central is offering more options than ever, and its targeting the younger, "hip" visitors that are similar to millennials that destination meeting planners are looking to wow.
Let's start with the Campbell Bar. The sad, nostalgic trip down memory lane many regulars felt when its original version was closing has been replaced with a vibrant, new venue run by the group that is responsible for nightlife spots like The Roof at the Viceroy Hotel and Mr. Purple. It is ideal for cocktail party events.
Then there is the upcoming Art Bird and Whiskey Bar, which is run by the man who used to serve as Oprah Winfrey's personal chef.
With construction moving along across the street at 1 Vanderbilt Place, which will be a major business destination of its own, the future for Grand Central Station is truly exciting for 2018, and beyond.
