ALL TICKET PURCHASES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

*If members of your group are purchasing tickets separately, please be sure to notify us by email at info@pleasantdale.com with a request to be seated together. (Requests made day of the event cannot be guaranteed.)

Due to the elaborate scope of this experience, space is strictly limited and must be first come, first served.

We’ve launched this opportunity early as
open-to-the-public events on our estate are very rarely offered.

Thus, as we’ve experienced with our previous events,
there is a high demand and tickets will sell-out quickly.

(Our last events sold-out within only weeks of launch.)

If interested in this event, please do act soon to ensure that you don’t miss out.

    ABOUT PLEASANTDALE CHATEAU

    This historic estate is a hidden gem of northern New Jersey that rivals the opulent mansions of the gold coast. Located upon a secluded, private 40-acre sprawling estate, it is complete with woodlands, ponds, charming bridges, meadows, meandering paths, and its own farm. Built at the turn of the century by a renowned American industrialist, this grand chateau was constructed in the true French-Normand style. Sparing no expense, master craftsmen of the era employed the finest of materials imported from throughout the world to create a one-its-kind masterpiece of ambitious architecture and luxurious style. Countless entertainers and notables of high-society of its day have walked its hallowed halls. Well over a century later, it is lovingly preserved and privately-owned by a three-generation family whose life’s work has been to create unique environments within the restaurant and hospitality sphere.
