Venue Spotlight: Westbury Manor

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Ever wondered what it would be like to live in the elegance of the Victorian Era? If so, the Westbury Manor is the ideal location for your next event. One is instantly transported back in time when greeted by the driveway lined with gas street lamps and pillars of brick and limestone. While the manor has been meticulously restored to emulate its 1880s roots, it has also been enhanced with many amenities that make it perfect for hosting weddings, corporate functions and other events.

The Westbury offers 6 impressive spaces that can service a wide variety of special events. The Manor Room is great for hosting large weddings and parties as it holds up to 378 guests, and comes with a built-in bar and dance floor. Truly a “room with a view,” the Manor Room opens to a lush garden (which doubles as a home to the Manor’s resident peacocks!). Want to really immerse guests in the beauty of Victorian style? Choose the Garden Room, a 1,928 square foot space complete with mahogany walls, sconce lighting and classic upholstery. Meals are served by a white-gloved staff to ensure the guests of honor feel like royalty.

Corporate Events

Seating 40 to 100 guests, the Hill Room serves as an ideal area for a corporate awards ceremony or presentation. For a more casual function, there’s no other place quite like the Manor’s Library room. Plush couches and Victorian décor are accompanied by a crackling fireplace in this charming room. With seating for 60, it’s a great setting for an office cocktail hour.

Parties and Gatherings

Want to really make your birthday party or family event unique? Host it in Westbury’s Executive or Conservatory room. The Executive Suite is perfect for a small gathering, like an anniversary party or birthday dinner. Old world charm is summoned by the cast iron tables and columns, but guests can still feel young out on the beautiful finished wood dance floor! For a brunch or lunch event, enjoy the beauty of the Conservatory room. The all glass-enclosed area is surrounded by the lavish greenery of the Manor’s garden. The Conservatory’s quaint atmosphere would be the ideal setting to incorporate a princess themed birthday party, tea party or a baby shower!
