After being raised in the restaurant industry for their entire lives, Gus Shizas, Frances Vagias, and Dina Holevas opened Waterside Wedding Venue.

From Our Satisfied Guests

5/5
Hosting my wedding at Waterside events was the best wedding related decision I've ever made. Starting from planning the event with Shantal, which was very easy, she was super responsive and very accommodating, she made planning a Covid wedding much easier on us.

I attended a work related event and it was amazingly beautiful experience to be here. I loved how the floor plan is structured and the bar had a tons of great options. I tried Malibu drink and it was better than anything else I had tried so far. The dance floor was great too and I found this place as a high end ine with a great view of NYC skyline!!!

5/5
This place is perfect for any event, the food is delicious, the waiters/servers are attentive, it’s super clean and the view is breathtaking. They have more than one space for events. The wedding I went to was much bigger than the space for the baby shower. Nonetheless, they both had an incredible view of New York City and both experiences were above and beyond.
