I need help with venues.
I’ve seen a few venues in Jersey City/Hoboken/Weehawken, including the big ones like Maritime Parc, The Charthouse and smaller ones like Casa Dante but none have really wowed me.
Can anyone recommend a place? We’re looking at 85-90 people for November/December. Hoping to stay around $110 per person, if not cheaper. A view of the city isn’t needed but would be nice. I’m also willing to check out other venues in other towns. I am not a big fan of the typical reception hall so if anyone knows of restaurants with private rooms or ones we can rent the entire restaurant that’d be great.

I believe the W is $200 per person, so a bit out of my price range.

Have you checked out the Liberty restaurant in the park in JC? Not sure if you will get $110 per person, though.

We checked out Puccini’s in Jersey City. It was 70pp. Although I like it I found that that it didn’t save us any money as compared to a traditional wedding venue.

What do you mean by that? Does a traditional venue offer more for the same price?

@Mommalita: Yes a traditional offered 3x as much for only $10 more per person. It was a full cocktail hour, sit down dinner (apps, salad, internezzo, dinner), open bar, dessert table and wedding cake. At the resturant it was a regular dinner only – app, salad, dinner and a dessert. So to us it seemed almost silly to go the resturant option.

Casino in the park. $75 person. Chandeliers in Bayonne starts at $25

Michael Anthony’s in Jersey City does accommodate weddings. Not sure of what they charge but I had a birthday party event there and they were very reasonable. You can customize the things you want and dont want and they do not fit you into some package price. Not so sure about weddings though.
