CLASSIC. ELEGANT. YOU BELONG HERE.

There are many reasons to hold your event at the New Haven Lawn Club – our knowledgeable and attentive event planners, the amazing food, our convenient downtown location, and more complimentary parking than any other venue in downtown New Haven. Still, one of the best reasons to hold your event with us is our building, a classic backdrop that can capture the style and mood of any event. The stately front entrance is surrounded by a portico with archways that overlook the front lawn. Octagonal windows and urn finials provide simple decoration to the Connecticut red brick façade. The rotunda, decorated with a crystal sunburst chandelier and featuring one of the Club’s seven wood-burning fire places, welcomes guests as they enter through our front door. The New Haven Lawn Club has six spaces for special events, including:

corporate-spaces-ballroom The Ballroom The Club’s original social gathering room, a magnificent space with hardwood floors, a 25-foot barrel-vaulted ceiling decorated with star accents, floor-to-ceiling windows, a large wood-burning fireplace, four Austrian Art Deco crystal chandeliers, crystal wall sconces, a built-in stage, and a terrace overlooking the tennis courts.
