The coolest bar in Prospect Heights = the Way Station. You can try them. My sister had her bday party there and we brought our own food. Take-out wings, a cake and they made a speciality drink for her. I’m a bit biased because I’m a Doctor Who fan and they have a TARDIS!! There’s tons of bars on Smith Street which would be convenient from the Marriott.

66 water in Dumbo has a few spaces but they serve food so it would the same as a restaurant.

I don’t do the bar thing but I’ll check with the hubby and see if he has any ideas.

Oh and here’s one more but it’s in Fort Greene. Try Frank’s it’s on Fulton. My hubby’s office xmas party was there. They have banquettes so people could lounge out.

For pizza in DUMBO, Grimaldi’s is a no-brainer. I’m not sure if they have space for large parties, but it’s worth asking about.

If you’re expecting nice weather, Washington Commons has a great outdoor patio with a ton of picnic tables. I’ve ordered takeout there a bunch of times, and I’ve seen birthday parties out there before. The only caveat is that their indoor space is not huge, so if it’s raining or freezing, there isn’t much of a plan B.

Same with Zombie Hut on Smith Street…. nice large outdoor space, somewhat smaller indoor space.

Floyd on Atlantic has a pretty decent amount of space… and bocce courts! Not sure what their outside food policy is, but it’s worth a call. Also – maybe Union Hall?

Can you update us about where you decide to host the party? My fiance and I are planning to throw an after-party after our afternoon reception, and are looking for something similar – a casual bar that will let us bring in some pizzas and cupcakes.

Would love to hear where you end up going because:

– We also want to stay in Brooklyn

– Our hotel is also the Marriot

– Our wedding is also at reBar
