The Carlyle name began with Carlyle on the Green almost 20 years ago when entrepreneur Steve Carl had a vision to bring people together for an exclusive one-of-a-kind event. Located on the grounds of scenic Bethpage State Park, Carlyle on the Green has established itself as a premiere catering venue on Long Island.
Housed in a meticulously restored English Manor, Carlyle on the Green’s interior is rich in tradition with alabaster chandeliers hanging from towering vaulted ceilings, Persian rugs warming cherry wood parquet floors, tapestries adorning mahogany walls and shimmering marble fireplaces. No matter the season, Carlyle on the Green showcases a panoramic view of lush and flowing landscapes in its conservatory ballroom.

We focus on one event at a time and give them our full attention.”

Carlyle on the Green has hosted acclaimed events such as the U.S. Open golf tournament in 2002 and 2009, as well as some of Long Island’s most notorious weddings, corporate gatherings and celebrations.
“We’ve hosted two highly publicized U.S. Opens, the Barclays in 2012, and will be hosting future golf events, including the Barclays again in 2016,” Carl said.
