I am recently engaged and just started scouring the web for wedding locations. I dont know if food or an outdoor/rooftop ceremony is more important to me. I REALLY want both. I recently discovered Tribeca rooftop which is beautiful. I havent gotten a reply from their sales department. Does anyone know how much it is and what the minimums are? I am expecting 150-200 people. I am really trying to keep costs down as I cant fathom spending so much on a wedding. Food is also really important to me. I hate typical catered food and would love something unique.
Any other places in the city like Tribeca Rooftop? Any great restaurants with rooftops or outdoor space? I have not set a date but am open to spring/summer/fall 2014
Thank you so much for your help!

From NY Magazine:
One of the most popular event spaces in Manhattan, this indoor-outdoor event space is usually booked a year in advance for weekends. The 15,000-square-foot skylight-lit penthouse with views of the Hudson River and the Empire State Building seats up to 300 guests with dancing (or 400 without). Prices—which include an open bar, wedding cake, and dinner—are $160 to $255 per person.

Tribeca Rooftop has a sister venue I looked at called Tribeca 360 that’s also very nice-not a rooftop but views everywhere.It’s pricey but if you’re willing to do a Friday or Sunday that would prob lower the price. I just got married at the Yale Club, they have a rooftop dining area with outdoor space that’s quite nice and Bridgewaters, which is currently having some problems with their landlord also has nice outdoor areas.

In the summer, Tribeca Rooftop (and 360) is $190pp on a friday/sunday, and $255 on saturday. This includes ceremony (on the roof for tribeca rooftop, if weather allows), cocktail hour, app/dinner/cake. Minimum is 160 people on a Friday/Sunday, 200 people on a saturday.
For cheaper and with outdoor space, I think My Moon in brooklyn might work, although I’m not sure what their capacity is (I just know it was too small for my party). There’s also battery gardens, which can do outdoor ceremony/cocktails (not on a roof though), and is quite a bit cheaper, especially on a friday/sunday.
Another potential for outdoor space is OfficeOps, in brooklyn (I don’t know much about it though). Midtown Loft & Terrace is another space with a really nice roof where you can do ceremony/cocktails. Same for Studio450. For these, you’d need to bring in your own catering.

It’s not a rooftop by any means, but we’re getting married at Giando on the Water in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It has gorgeous views of the city, floor to ceiling windows, and is right on the east river. They also have an outdoor patio.
We booked our Friday night wedding in late June for $110 pp. It includes cocktail hour, open bar, 3 course dinner, cake, and pastries for dessert.
Food was important to us too, and it turns out that this is pretty run of the mill catering food, but the view is stunning and the price was right, so we made a *slight* alteration to our priorities.

Thank you for your help! we are looking at tribeca rooftop and the liberty house this weekend.
Any other recommendations are appreciated. I am okay with jersey city or LIC. Anything with a view and GREAT food!

@raqest008: i echo the suggestion above for Studio 450– views are great, and even though you have to bring in your own caterer, that allows you to pick one that you love.
Studio Square in LIC has great views as well, and a rooftop (they have a preferred caterer, but you can use anyone). I’m getting married there, so I’m kind of partial 🙂
I don’t think anyone mentioned the Liberty Warehouse in brooklyn, steiner studios (don’t think they have an outdoor option), or abigail kirsch venues at chelsea piers. all of those also have great views, as does the Hyatt in Jersey City.
hope this helps!

Tribeca rooftop gets my vote.

You should also try the W Loft in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It has a roof top and indoor area (located on the 4th floor). Since its a raw space you get to put your own personal touches with decorations.
