The Big Board Club, located in the heart of the New York Stock Exchange, is housed in the two floors directly above the iconic NYSE Trading Floor. The event space is the result of a recent two year renovation of the George Post designed building that was originally completed in 1903. Our exclusive rooms combine one of the most unique venues in the world with all of the state-of-the art technologies and amenities required to hold any type of meeting or event. The space is now refreshed with bright, art-lined corridors and every meeting room is singular and compelling. A new marble staircase connects the 6th and 7th floors, improving guests’ ability to discreetly move through the space.
The now two floor event venue was reconfigured and repurposed for enhanced use, still with sensitivity to the building’s archaeological layers. Key elements have been preserved in the building that initially included a double-height boardroom, executive offices, a restaurant and private social spaces for the trading community. Careful deliberation was taken to remove previous changes made to the space and return the floors to their original layout. Some of the rooms now bear the names found on the architect’s original drawings from 1901 and several still feature free standing coat trees that George Post designed.
The Big Board Club name, itself, is a nod to the historic nickname of the Exchange and elements of the lineage of the NYSE, its issuers and the people who embodied the growth of the capital markets can be discovered throughout the space. The Bond Room, for example, has vintage, engraved certificates hanging along with David Hockney’s composite photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge. The Clerk’s Room features a signed letter from Thomas Edison offering his version of an invention that transmits stock quotations rapidly, i.e., the stock ticker. Issuers can also access Siebert Hall, named after Muriel Siebert, which captures the under told story of the women of Wall Street and features several modern art installations. The large meeting space serves as the contemporary equivalent to the iconic Board Room and Freedom Hall.
The Board Room, the largest room in the building after the Trading Floor, is adorned with tall arches, richly ornamented walls and an enormous glass and iron skylight which embody the classical revival architecture of the building. The renovation merged the historic features of the room with multimedia capabilities to transform three of the arches into video screens and LED mats now backlight the skylight, which was covered over for security nearly a century ago. Access to the Big Board Club is through a private lobby on the 7th floor that features the Buttonwood Agreement. The document, signed on May 17, 1792, by twenty-four brokers laid the foundation that the current New York Stock Exchange is built on. Just passed the installation is 1792 - the restaurant serves high-end fare and available for exclusive use by issuers and their guests.
The space is now home to more than 1,000 events a year housing some of the world's most inspiring business leaders, celebrities, athletes, musicians and leaders.
