Check out Bubby’s. I really liked it, it was reasonably priced but ultimately we decided on somewhere in Manhattan because most the ceremony will be in Manhattan.

What did you think of Liberty Warehouse?  It sounds like it fits your criteria

  • Propsect Park Pinic House (open space you can decorate how you want, but have to use one of their pre-approved caterers)
  • http://www.kaistudiobk.com/index.html –  I haven’t visited personally but I came across it recently

I agree with you on Steiner Studios, I used to think OMG thats such a great space until I attended an event there and it doesn’t speak to me at all. But the food was fab.

@bklynbridetobe: I’ve never even heard of Kai Studio before, but it looks really cool!  I’ve emailed them asking for details.

 

@zinzi: I’ve heard some bad things about the Green Building not returning people’s deposits, etc.  What about Powerhouse Arena?  OfficeOps is also an option for really raw.

@zinzi: ME TOO – I told them so and I got a much more reasonable deal.  We just signed the contract  yesterday.

I know you said you wanted a lofty type feel but the Old Stone House in Park Slope is nice and on a nice day it gets a lot of light.

And I had the same reaction to Liberty Warehouse, I was shocked to see $195 as the starting price.

Good luck!  Let us know where you end up booking!

I went to the Old Stone House last week and its defintely charming, but room thats on the 2nd floor is small IMO and you cant decorate it or the 1st floor, because its a historical site. However, you would have rent a tent (which you could design how you want), They are flexiable in terms of caterers and very resonably priced.

@zinzi: So I’m venue hunting in Brooklyn also and going to check out Rebar next week – it may fit your criteria. I don’t think it could be considered a “raw” space but it specifies that it’s a non-trad venue, so if you’re still hunting, you may dig it. If you look through the boards you will see what other Brooklyn-based bees have to say about it – they love it!

Try the brooklyn winery- ask to speak with Jenesy.  We thought really long about using it, but I didn’t want such a raw space (caterer, linens, etc)  It sounds like it might be exactly what you’re looking for.

@zinzi:Roulette, on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn is an amazing space for a wedding! They’ve just moved in a few months ago but have revamped the place with hardwood floors and beautiful balcony reliefs. Really unique…

Just interested to see where you landed on your brooklyn wedding. I looked at a couple and now we are heavily considering Giando on the Water. It is a bit catering hall but the price was reasonable considering other places started off at $150 pp.

I think Deity on Atlantic Ave is a really good space for a wedding if you are lookign to find cheaper places for 100 people. They were willing to work with me like crazy and their was no price per person, just a minimum that we needed to spend in food and drink. Don’t be turned off by the fact that it is a nightclub. The owner is really down to earth. 

Also, $195 for Liberty Warehouse??? BK is getting ridiculous.

 

Note-I didn’t book it Deity. I have too many people in the end.
