Luminary is located at 1204 Broadway between 30th and 29th streets, one block away from multiple subway lines at multiple station(s), three blocks from Penn Station and two blocks from the Path, with proximity to Port Authority and multiple bus stops. For those Members who drive to work, there are several parking lots nearby and ample metered parking spots near our location.
While Luminary will sometimes host events that are made for all ages, standard memberships are only available to women 21+ years of age. Guests of members also need to be 21+ years of age as well. Given we will have memberships for college students and partnerships with various universities, we will ensure we seek proof of ID.
Luminary’s normal business hours are Monday through Friday from 8am-9pm, and Saturday from 10am-4pm. Evening programming and networking events may run past 9pm on a case by case basis. We are closed on Sundays to give our Luminary staff a break. Let’s hope you give yourself a break too!
Luminary features six private, fully equipped conference room for meetings. Each conference room includes seating for up to 8-12 people, a wall-mounted flat screen TV that’s perfect for presentations and a conference phone (Polycom). We also have an extra-large conference room that can hold up to 40 people with partitions to make three separate rooms for breakouts or to run simultaneous events. Conference rooms are able to be booked via our app. Our boardrooms when needed as a whole can be booked for a fee.
Luminary understands that often women work, partner, and collaborate with men professionally – we need them on our journey too! Because our mission is to help women stay in boss mode, we will welcome male guests, speakers and facilitators in certain programs and events. In addition, if a Member would like to host a meeting with a man/men in our conference room space, we will just require notice. However, Members who rent our private event space are welcome to host guests of all genders.
Yes! We have printers/scanners, and our Community Managers on-site who will be more than happy to assist you. We try to be environmentally responsible with our printing.
Absolutely! We feel Luminary can become an extension of an organization’s women’s group or forum, from small to large.

You bet! Part of the power AND the success of Luminary is that the women of our community contribute to it. Whether you are a subject matter expert or would like to facilitate a program, become a mentor, speak at an event, hold “office hours” or simply just want to get involved, we’d love to hear from you.

We know how little time professional women have in a day, despite our abilities to multi-task like a champ. To make sure we all get to focus on health and well-being, we’ve collaborated with various well-recognized fitness partners to offer a fully-outfitted fitness studio within our space. During the first six months, our rotating fitness partners include barre, yoga, stretch, meditation and one-to-one personal training. Classes will run throughout the week based on our fitness calendar and Member needs.
Our idea is collaboration over competition. As a member, your ties with Luminary are long-lasting and far-reaching. At present time, we are sister clubs with The Coven in Minneapolis, Minnesota and working on others. As our partnerships grow geographically, so will your opportunities to connect! Our sister communities stand ready to welcome you when you travel on business or pleasure and enjoy connecting and access to their amenities and options...just as you would here at home with Luminary.
