blank canvas event venue

When you book your event at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, you can access a blank canvas to decorate to suit your event’s theme. Whether a sleek and modern corporate event or a rustic wedding, our raw space allows you to be creative with your event decor.

With so many details to choose from, it can be overwhelming to plan your special event decor. But with these steps in mind, you can make your vision a reality!

Choose Your Adventure

What kind of event are you planning? Will it be a chic wedding in glamorous Tribeca, a professional corporate private event, or a big social party celebrating a life event? Once you know that, you can choose your color palette, ambiance, and the atmosphere you want to create.

The Drawing Board

Next, you’ll want to create a detailed plan of action. Use a blueprint of your event venue and decide which areas you’d like to decorate. Elements to consider include the flow of your event and the layout of things like seating, entertainment, and food.


Next, you’ll want to decide what decorations to use for your event. This includes centerpieces, lighting, photo walls, and audio-visual projections.


Lighting can set the mood of an event like nothing else can. Tribeca Rooftop + 360 uses AV Workshop for all our lighting and AV needs. Lighting options include bright lights for a fun, energetic vibe, dim, romantic lighting, string lights, spotlights, and more.

Every option can help enhance the other decor at your event and can be as important as centerpieces and other decor.


While we do have tables and chairs available for use at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, you may choose to bring in your own or bring other furnishings like sofas and additional seating, video game or other game consoles or tables, or anything else you can dream up.

Audio Visual

As we mentioned, AV Workshop is our in-house audio-visual company, and they know their way around our venue. They can help you formulate a beautiful audio and visual setup that will transform our raw space into the space you’ve been dreaming of for your special event.

Food and Drinks

A beautiful food presentation adds to the ambiance of your event whether it’s a buffet table or hand-delivered, plated food, the options you choose for the dining portion of your event matter.

Signage and Branding

Adding your own signage and branding adds a personalized touch to your corporate events. This will help your guests associate your brand with your event, which, if done correctly, can improve your company’s image in the eyes of your customers and event guests.

Projecting logos on the walls or adhering to temporary decals are great ways to capture your guest’s attention and make the event feel more on-brand.

Interactive Elements

Interactive games, information booths, or other interactive elements will help your special event stand out from the competition. Make your event fun and memorable by letting guests participate in the action.

Safety, Security, and Accessibility

Having an event that is accessible to all is essential. Ensure your event venue has elevators if it is not on the first floor and ramps for those who cannot take the stairs. At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we also have a dedicated doorperson who can assist those with accessibility issues at the front door.

Day-Of Coordination

While Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC offers a day-of coordinator to help assist you with your event, be sure to have your team in place and ensure they know their roles when running your event.

Your team can help distribute information, help with crisis control, and ensure your guests have a good time.

Get Feedback

After your event, be sure to solicit feedback from your guests so you can learn what they liked and didn’t like about your event. You can then use that information for future events.

In Conclusion

Remember, creating ambiance at your event space is easy when you know how to plan for it. With these tips, you can now map out your event decor. To learn more about your event options, don’t hesitate to contact Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC today.
