Located in Carroll Gardens, this is a modern industrial space inspired by the building's history and charm of this historic Brooklyn neighborhood. The space is approximately 1200 square feet and dates back to the turn of the century. Features include a 20' high ceiling, exposed steel beams, antique light fixtures, and custom made furniture. It was formerly an iron works welding shop and was recently restored into a private event venue. The high ceilings and custom fabricated steel furniture and windows provide a unique backdrop for baby showers, birthday parties, anniversary parties, dinner parties, and other private events.
All setup and breakdown time needed for events must be included in the total booking charge. There will be additional charges if you use the space for a longer period of time than you have reserved it for. Smoking is not allowed. Glitter is not allowed. Extremely loud music is not allowed. Renters are expected to be respectful of neighbors and keep reasonable noise levels at all times during the event.
The space is great. We had a successful event. John was a good host overall. However keep in mind that any alteration to the booking time needs to be officially changed through Peerspace. I originally booked 4.5 hours on Peerspace from 7pm-11:30pm. I verbally communicated that our event would start at 7pm and our party end time at 11pm. John generously offers 30 minutes before and after your booked time for setup and clean up. I communicated that we would arrive to set up at 6pm since I needed an hour to set up. Unfortunately I didn't know to change the time on Peerspace, which meant I arrived at the space to set up and the space was closed. I emailed John and he sent someone over immediately to open the space. What was unfortunate was that John was insistent that I had booked the space online for a later time without acknowledging that I had verbally told him otherwise. I understand it's always best practice to make any changes in writing. However, having photographed over 500 events myself I always took verbal requests to the contract and adjusted the contract, plus alerted the client. And in the event that it's straight up a miscommunication on my part, I wouldn't argue with a client 45 minutes before their party is about to start as they are rushing around to set up. John's attitude was defensive and unhelpful in this regard. That being said it is a clean beautiful space- just make sure you are clear in writing through the website about your booking time.
Beautiful space, all of our guests were super impressed! John is a great host, very accommodating, met all of our requests and is very quick with communication. Highly recommend!
The space was amazing! John was a great communicator, very accommodating and even allowed us to drop by and see the place the day before. So many people asked how we rented the space because they loved it so much. Couldn't have asked for a better venue for our baby shower!
Great location! Looks exactly how the photos show, also John was helpful and easy to work with. He was easy to get in contact with and was able to answer any questions. Would rent this space again!! Thank you so much John!
The space is gorgeous and very clean and John is a great host. He always responded to my inquiries quickly and seemed happy to answer all of my questions. I was disappointed that the sound system ended up being an Alexa speaker that I couldn’t use, but John helped me find a solution. The full kitchen was amazing to have. Overall good experience, even with the sound hiccup.
I cannot say enough about this venue. It is modern elegance. The decor is naturally so beautiful that I did not want to take away from the space itself I chose to minimized decorations for my boyfriends 50th birthday party. Just a few balloon trees scattered. It was beautiful. Every single one of my guest LOVED the space and asked how did I find it. The picture does look just like the space but it is so much more! The kitchen in its own space is fantastic! No catering work being done in the space. This was a jem and I am so happy I chose to host this very special day at this venue!
John was an excellent host and the space was perfect for my 30th birthday. Everyone asked me how I booked this place and I know that they will most likely book it for their own events! Thanks John for making my birthday memorable!
Couldn't have asked for a better space than this for our baby shower! Looks just like the pictures. There is also a kitchen, convenient for staging catered meals. John, our host, was very helpful.
