Rent A Book Lover’s Dream
The Rare Book Room on the Strand Book Store’s third floor is lined with shelves packed with leather-bound classics and signed first editions. The legendary space has played host to decades of treasures from all eras and we invite you to host your own event in their midst.
Whether you’re renting our beautiful space “to please or to educate,” as Horace would suggest, the Rare Book Room is a flexible and ample space that retains an intimate atmosphere. Past events have run the gamut from weddings to wine tastings, and even a burlesque night.
Our venues beautifully blend form and function, combining rich design with modern amenities while keeping sustainability in mind. They serve as the ideal backdrop to meet your event needs and enhance your guest experience with stunning views, history, artwork and more.
Thanks for a fabulous event! It went great and I appreciate [the Great Performances] staff.

You’re a star! I was so pleased with everything. The food was fabulous. You kept sending it out. You had the perfect amount of staff. Can’t thank you enough and I look forward – very much – to working with you in the future!

The evening was everything we could hope for and more. I loved every minute working with and we will be reaching out when future events pop up.
