Birthdays

Raising Astoria is the perfect party venue for birthday parties, baby showers, or other special events.  The space is exclusively yours for your private party.

When you first walk into our open space, you see our Activity and Playroom which is brightly decorated with a unique NYC Skyline and Triborough Bridge Mural in Purple/Orange/Blue colors. With our multi-colored ceiling lights and disco ball bluetooth speaker, this room makes a great first impression as guests walk through the door! The floor is padded with foam tiles which are safe for children of all ages.  We blow up our Bouncy Castle for one hour (recommended for ages 1-6 years) during the party which kids love!

Our second space, the Sensory Playroom is all white and has hardwood flooring. This room has a sensory wall of toys, a play house, a train table, and a play kitchen that keep the little ones entertained for hours.  Included in this room are four- 6 foot long tables, 20 folding chairs for adults and 15 chairs for children. You can decorate the room as you wish; we will provide you with painter's tape to hang your decorations. We only expect the room to be left as you found it. There is a large restroom with a changing table in this room as well.

Our space can accommodate 40 people comfortably.  We only charge for the space rental, not per child or adult. Catered food, hot or cold, is always welcome at no extra cost!
