"Merkin Hall feels like a second home to me. The hall provides the warmest acoustics and intimate setting that allows the artist to communicate with the audience."     - Violinist Paul Huang

Long known as one of New York's finest venues for chamber music and recitals, the 449-seat Merkin Hall is also excellent for amplified music, auditions, meetings and business events. Our presenters consistently give Merkin Hall high marks in the areas most important to them, naming the superior acoustics, convenient location near Lincoln Center and excellent value as their top reasons for holding their events here. Basic rental packages include stage crew members, box office services and front-of-house staff.

  • Near-perfect acoustics
  • A state-of-the-art recording studio
  • Fantastic location
  • Intimate feel & great audience rapport
  • Steinway grand piano
  • Beautiful reception spaces
  • A spacious and comfortable green room
  • A professional staff dedicated to making your event a success
