Nearly anything!

  • Private events: Birthday parties, baby showers, family reunions, engagement parties, chef dinners, cocktail parties, Super Bowl parties, leaving town farewell parties, retirement parties.

With that foundation in place, we consult with you step-by-step as we build your special occasion. We bring all the options to you—your life will not come to a standstill during this process, we work hard to make sure you experience all of the joy of hosting an event, none of the hassles.

Yes. We can help you with this. For weddings, we partner with a few insurance providers and our management team can work with you to get an insurance quote that meets your budget and needs.

Will you be there on the day of the event?

Yes, and ready to handle everything that comes up! You are assigned a Casa Manager who will be there before the event to make sure everything is set up properly; during the event, to make sure everything runs smoothly; and afterward to oversee proper breakdown and clean-up. You are liberated to focus on your guests and special occasion.

What People are Saying About
Our Event Space Venues in NYC

Lilly L., owner

“Communication with the Cocoon team was great and the space is absolutely stunning! We look forward to working with them in the future.”

Byrnne D.

“We held a spiritual healing and meditation event at a loft. It is a lovely, inviting, and visually interesting space. We were easily able to create the setting and ambiance we desired, with an intimate area for the workshop and an open, adjacent area for participants to gather and speak with one another. The Cocoon team was very warm and responsive, and they went out of their way to ensure a good experience for us. They helped the morning set up and post-event break down go smoothly, and they were on site for the event, which was absolutely lovely. Our experience was excellent, overall, and I would highly recommend this space.

Emily B., Event Producer

“The space was perfect for our event. The Cocoon team was great and very responsive.”

Why you should work with Cocoon

We make your life manageable!

Our Story: How Cocoon Helps the City of New York

Our founder, Eduard Monteagudo, was motivated to start Cocoon as a way of funding a better future for NYC. While training as an architect in Barcelona, Eduard began to understand that the city of the future was not about buildings so much as about public access, public space, and how those things can help fight racism, promote social justice and empower the next generation.
With this vision, he imagined funding a real estate rental and event services business that would pour its profits into community projects that will include pop up art galleries and reviving derelict spaces in ungentrified neighborhoods for local use.
Cocoon feels that the real estate industry must invest in the larger community as a necessary part of business practice. Safer, enjoyable and nurturing neighborhoods improve life for everyone.
