Approximately 2000 sq ft in a converted industrial warehouse is open for photoshoots and small gatherings. This is a casual, eclectic DIY-style space and recommend you come take a tour to see if it is a fit for your event. (The rest of the warehouse is used for coworking. Be aware: both parts are connected and visible to one another. You can see desks, computers, and other such items.) Located on the Gowanus canal, we are half a block away from the Smith-9th stop (F/G). With your rental you get: • a mounted roll of 9-ft wide seamless that you can either use as a photo backdrop or a projection screen • a projector, three tables, 24 chairs, and various other vintage furniture and props • a wood-floor platform, roughly 450sf in size • natural light streaming from large windows as well as our roll up garage door (weather permitting) • shared access to our kitchen and meeting room • shared access to two bathrooms, or one large bathroom reserved for your private use • wifi • A/C and heat An additional charge will be incurred if you are having more than 30 guests. Please contact us for weekday business hours rates.
As we are a co-working space, we expect any renters to respect our members’ personal property and to only use parts of the space included in the rental. You are welcome to move tables, chairs, and other such furniture but, if furniture or props are moved, they should be returned to their original location. The space should be returned in the state it was at the beginning of the event and with trash/recycling put out in the dumpster. There is a full kitchen so food can be prepared or brought in, as needed. You may use our equipment but we must know in advance. In addition, if refrigeration is needed, we would need a request for space in the fridge in advance.
I feel in love with this space & its character the moment that I saw it in person! Casson was very helpful & was quick with resonding to my what felt like 1,000 messages. Thank you Casson! When booking this space I would suggest putting a balloon or some sort or light on the street/bridge near the entrance, I had balloons out front which made it easier for my guest to spot the entrance but before the balloons were there my helpers and vendors kept riding past. With renting the space you are required to move their belongings/furniture, and also put it back EXACTLY how it was found. This is cool and understandable, but depending on what you're using the space for there's alot to move and to put back into place, and this cuts into your rental time. I had more hands helping once my event ended and still needed an additional hour on top of what I had already paid to get their things back into place. Just keep this in mind when booking! Overall I love the space, the staff was nice & helpful, and would suggest it to others.
Beautiful space. It was perfect for the engagement party we threw. The location was great and a huge plus was the open parking space that was available. The host was very responsive, accommodating and helpful. Definitely would book again!
My friends' hosted an amazing baby shower for me at this venue (60 people) and I honestly don't think there would've been a better place to have the event. I'm already plotting to have a holiday party here. So much seating and table space. The kitchen is great for reheating food and whatever else you need to do kitchen wise. The decor is charming and rustic. The open space is just perfect to get everybody socializing and having a good time. The event space manager was extremely helpful and was willing to go out of her way to make sure we had what we needed. This place is definitely one of the best bangs for your buck on peer space.
Finding a wedding venue in New York City is an arduous task to say the least. My partner and I were in the middle of researching and visiting other spaces when we came upon this gem. We walked in on a rainy, overcast day and were immediately sure it was where we wanted to get married. The tall ceilings, the many and big windows, the amazing (and bright) decor - it even has a raised stage! Everything at the venue, not including the co-working space, but including all of their tools, dishware, furniture, and plants was in play and we got to really make it our own for the day. It's an amazing find and we're very lucky to have chanced upon it. Casson was a great help to us leading up to our wedding day and on the day itself. My partner and I loved the space and were excited to have such a beautiful venue as a backdrop for our wedding.
As I really appreciated the space, specifically it's loft like feel, built in stage and bar it was the worst experience I've had as a Senior Event Producer. 1. Casson was ok with her responses. She is a nice lady, but I think she had too much going on and as a result we got the short end of the stick. 2. The venue was so hard to design around. Space is significantly limited to being rearranged. If you're looking for a clean slate, think twice. We had to move the tables and chairs ourselves. People's desks we're cluttered with paper, bottles, cups and so on. I get it's a shared office space, but they could have cleaned up. The stage was cluttered with storage items of which we couldn't move. You aren't encouraged to hang anything from the beams. Everything had to be back as it and the end. Limited use of outlets made it hard to activate technical activities. 3. The location seemed like a good idea but NOT AT NIGHT. It was so dark back there I too would have turned around. My guests complained they thought they were in the wrong area, thought they were going to get robbed and so on... I'm not exaggerating. We had a hand full of people turn around and leave. Night time events are not the best idea here. 4. The team complained about how uninvolved the hostess was until asked. She's a nice girl, but she sat on the couch visibally texting and observing. 5. I wish the space could have worked. Ask ALL questions up front.
What a beautiful space for our Bend & Brunch event! Love the natural lighting and energy of the space. Perfect for our yoga event, ample amount of room and great for photography in the natural lighting! Kitchen was perfect for re-heating and light prepping. Loved the little bar area and dining table, perfect for events! Convenient to train station and those that drove. Will definitely rent the space again!
Casson was a very nice host, friendly and accommodating. We absolutely loved the space. It was slightly hard for some to find the location using the address but as soon as you use"Small City" in Brooklyn on maps it was super easy to find. This place has pretty much everything, all the kitchen items and a very functional kitchen. We had a confetti incident where some were spilled from some balloons. We didn't have a good vacuum but from the cleaning items available we cleaned the best we could. I think a regular vacuum cleaner would help the cleaning a bit more. Overall I think this is a fantastic space great for events.
