SUSHISAMBA offers a wide range of creative options that will make your event stand out in the minds of your guests for years to come. From daytime luncheons to cocktail fêtes to polished dinner parties, we’re here to make your event a success. From our all-season 2nd floor rooftop garden overlooking the bustle of the West Village to the main floor’s artistic glow, the venue is truly one-of-its-kind. Food options extend way beyond sushi to a range of grilled meats, poultry and more– with something for every palate. And samba-sized add-ons include samba dancers, batucada drummers and sushi & sake classes to enliven your event.


Open all year, our iconic rooftop is unlike any other event space in NYC. In warmer weather, doors are flung open for guests to enjoy balcony seating and views of the West Village below. In cooler seasons, the sun streams through full-ceiling skylights framed by lush greenery and vines, while the fireplace kindles an intimate ambience. During any season, a beautiful walnut bar is the focal point of the rooftop – the perfect place to kick-off your event.
