I don’t know how many of these places are booked already, but some ideas to try:

Brooklyn Winery (we just went to a wedding there two weeks ago and it was amazing!)

Columbia Faculty House

These places: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mackenziekruvant/amazing-alternative-nyc-wedding-venues

Dyker Beach Golf Course

the Prospect Park Picnic House

The Foundry in LIC

Galapagos Art Space

I feel awful for all the folks who are getting screwed out of their wedding at ReBar. So, so awful. 🙁

Agree with @melizabe. There are a lot of business going directly to that Gothamist article to offer help. Also, I suggest searching Twitter. Some businesses have been offering assistance via their Twitter account.

I am SO very sorry for all you ladies, this is insane.

I’ve never been, but I’ve heard Deity in Brooklyn is similar and they are not super far apart if one already had guests staying at Marriott/Nu Hotel etc.

ReBar’s wedding planners sent out an e-mail with a list of all the venues who’ve discounted weddings for reBar couples.

Maybe it’s just me, but after losing as much money as I did, I have NO desire to restart the wedding planning process.  If we can’t somehow recoup the money we spent, we cannot afford a wedding in New York, discounted or not.  If we do, I have no interest in giving it to another wedding venue.  F*ck that.

melizabe:  Do you have any pricing information for ici?  We are devastated but trying to move forward.

mxe7411:  I got some pricing info for ici from last year, when I was looking into having our rehearsal dinner there. They had a passed hors d’ouerves option for $25/pp which included six passed apps. Unlimited beer and wine was about $40/pp for three hours. I don’t have info on their sit down dinner options bc we were just looking for something casual, but I know they have those too. Wishing you lots of luck moving forward, and I’m so sorry this happened to you.

ladies just heard on the news that brides can get their money back from ReBar.. more information in the link below. Also, for those who have not file a consumer complaint “will have 120 days to file a complaint and submit proof of payment. “
