The Gleacher Center was an excellent choice for our Global Legal Meeting. Our team members enjoyed the views, the great lighting and the hospitality. The food choices were amazing and all of our A/V needs were met. I anticipate other colleges will want to utilize the space for their future meeting needs.

We hosted our wedding welcome reception at Gleacher and all of our guests RAVED about the event. The space was beautiful, the drink service was smooth, and it was the best place we could have picked for our event. As a former Booth student, I thought I knew how good the food would be, but I was BLOWN AWAY by how delicious everything was, and the presentation was perfect.
