Candlelight Venues in NYC
Originally located in Midtown, the Church of the Heavenly Rest moved to the site of its architecturally marvelous home opposite Central Park on the Upper East Side in 1929. The towering church features pointed arches, vaulted ceilings decorated with stars and stained-glass windows that are all the more stunning when lit up with the light of hundreds of candles.
Surrounded by hip bars, swanky restaurants and classy galleries, The Williamsburg Hotel is all style and elegance. It’s no wonder why it’s oft-described as the chicest hotel in the neighborhood. But, you don’t need to stay the night to take advantage of the glamor the hotel affords its guests.
Although constructed in the late 1800s, a five-year renovation project saw the Williamsburg Opera House return to its historic best. Featuring ornate architecture, beautiful carvings and stunning chandeliers, the venue transforms every event into a grand occasion. And, its acoustics are sensational, leaving nothing to be desired.
Situated on historic Bleecker Street, The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture has hosted countless cultural events, including movie premieres, concerts. The venue’s history is quite fascinating. The building originally served as a parish for Italian immigrants, founded by two Jesuit priests. In the late ’20s, a school was built, which included an auditorium with a professional stage that would present full-scale operas annually. Following the results of the Great Depression, the church was converted into a residence and employment center for homeless men.
It wasn’t until 2015 that The Sheen Center would finally open its doors for artists in the likes of Norah Jones, Vanessa Williams, Kristin Chenowith and James Taylor. Today, it serves as a space where art and spirituality meet, which makes it an ideal location for enchanting and heavenly classical concerts under candlelight.
St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church is no small building and was once the most visible landmark in all of Brooklyn, its spire was used by ship captains to sail into New York harbor. The nave of the church is 145 feet long and 42 feet wide, and the ceiling, an intricate fan-vaulted design, stands 63 feet high dwarfing those seated in the pews. The colored and textured interior walls will be aglow for Candlelight concerts over the coming months.
Located on the Upper East Side on Manhattan, the Neo-Byzantine-style Greek Orthodox church was created in 1891 and today, the beautiful structure is a symbol of the city with its Byzantine mosaics, botticino marble and Italian stained glass. Many figures of American history and pop culture have somehow been connected with the church, among which Eleanor Roosevelt, who laid its first cornerstone in 1931 and Maria Callas getting baptized there in 1926.
Escape to the Hamptons this summer and find your seat at an intimate Candlelight concert. Canoe Place Inn & Cottages is a restored inn in the town of Southampton. After years of restoration and luxurious improvements, the centuries-old inn offers lanscaped gardens, a pool, and quality dining. Discover this exceptional venue and unwind during an enchanting live music performance.
Whether you’re looking for a beautifully unique classical or jazz performance or a romantic, candlelit experience, these concerts will fit the bill. And you don’t even need to be a music connoisseur to enjoy the experience (though of course, that is welcome as well).
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
