Wave Hill House, home to the Mark Twain Room


Enjoy an elegant Private Brunch in the stately, wood-paneled Mark Twain Room in historic Wave Hill House. The space is available for parties of up to 40 guests on select Sundays from November through March. Your Private Brunch is held in one of the most remarkable estate homes in the country, and certainly New York City's most majestic. Let us help you celebrate milestone anniversaries, achristening, reunion or just Sunday Brunch with friends.

The Mark Twain Room is available for Private Brunches on select Sundays from 11AM to 2PM, November through March. Catering is provided by Wave Hill's exclusive caterer, Great Performances, who will work with you to create a memorable and delicious occasion. Brunch pricing begins at $180 per person. To reserve, Wave Hill Membership is required at the Sustainer Partner level ($2,500), which is 100% tax-deductible. A rental rate of $1500 is required to secure the Mark Twain Room, a beloved, former library, enjoyed by Mark Twain and his family, Arturo Toscanini and other distinguished, former residents.
