I just got back from my honeymoon a few days ago and while the vacation was a wonderful time away, there was nothing better for me than my wedding reception. From the day I booked Bank Street Events to the day after the wedding when I picked up all of our extra items, Nikki went above and beyond. She and her staff worked with me personally for months on end regarding every detail from the flowers to the invitations to the food, and everything was beyond BEAUTIFUL! With about three weeks to go before my wedding, there was a miscommunication with another vendor regarding my lighting, but Nikki came to the rescue and provided me with all my lighting and made it match the other decor perfectly. She took a personal interest in my fiancé, my family, our special day and me. I could not have gotten through the craziness of the wedding without her. We had numerous guests tell us that the venue was so different than the normal CT venue and it felt as though they were in NYC at a fabulous party. All I wanted was to have the reception be unique and fit mine and my fiancés personality and Nikki made it her job to give us exactly what we wanted — something beautiful, different and whimsically fun. I highly recommend this venue to anyone in the area and wish I could do it all again!

A wedding day can be a stressful experience for some; Nikki and Maxine at Bank Street make it an enjoyable and exciting process. From my husband and my first meeting with Nikki we knew Bank Street Events was “the place!” We fell in love with the historical charm and modern updates that fills the venue. The original hard wood, marble and vaulted ceiling makes for a fantastic backdrop for your photographs. The hanging tea light candles and newly upholstered leather banquets give this space an expensive feel. Plus, the space allows you the ability to add your own unique pops of character without it looking overwhelming.

The communication was open throughout our whole process and responses came quickly for my “one last question.” My guests are still commenting on how this was the best wedding food they have ever had, and I whole heartily agree! The staff at Bank Street Events makes you feel welcome, special and take care of everything to make sure your event is smooth and outstanding! I can’t say enough about how wonderful our wedding was. It exceeded my expectation and I am looking for an excuse to have another fabulous party at Bank Street Event soon. Thank you!

Our firm, which is located in Stamford, has used Nikki for catering as well as for special events at Bank Street Events. The atmosphere at Bank Street is fabulous. Nikki and her team really put forth effort and time into knowing the culture of the company and its employees, not only for the food, which delicious and perfectly prepared, but also decorating for special events within Bank Street itself. The staff is friendly and couldn’t be more helpful.

We have also had Nikki cater events at our office. Her food is extraordinary and one can tell she (and all who work with and for her) take an enormous amount of pride in producing the most delicious food one can imagine. This is not a “run of the mill” catering business. If you are looking for something and someone special, please do not hesitate to contact Nikki! You will not be disappointed.


Nikki and her team at Bank Street are true event-planning artists. From the decor to the overall design to the event flow to the lighting to the scrumptious food, no detail was overlooked. It was a joy to work with Nikki, who was the epitome of professionalism and party-planning knowledge. Our event at Bank Street was so special and unique; it was a spectacular time for our guests and an unforgettable night for us.

Nikki is a pleasure to work with in planning this special event. We went over things in detail. She offered good ideas and helped us save money where she could. She was very flexible to our needs. At the celebration, she did everything she could to make sure that it went smoothly, so everyone could have a great time – and they did! You can tell this is her passion – she seems to love what she is doing!”
“I am so glad that we chose Nikki’s Event place for our wedding. It couldn’t have turned out better. Everyone had a great time. Many people were fascinated by the interesting space and lighting. Almost everyone said they loved the food and the dancing. If I had to do this again for our children, this is the first place I will think of.”

“I can’t thank you enough for what an incredible wedding we had this Sunday. It turned out to be so much more than what we expected! Almost everyone we spoke to mentioned how incredibly beautiful the venue + event was. You made everything so easy + seamless from start to finish. I really could not have done this without you!

This past weekend we had our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah at Bank Street. Nikki and her team took care of every detail and made the evening a night we will never forget. From the fantastic decor, to the delicious food and the incredible service, everything was done to perfection. Planning a party for 165 people can be stressful, but working with Nikki made the process fun. Her delightful personality kept me calm during the months leading up to the party. She responded immediately to every email, phone call and text I sent her with my questions throughout the planning. She met with my family and I multiple times, in addition to our DJ, to guarantee that all our wishes were met and make sure the flow of the evening was perfect. At the event itself, my family and guests commented several times to us, how wonderful the staff was. Nikki and her team were so attentive to everyone.
The Party exceeded our expectations in every way and we are so grateful to Nikki Glekas!
