The Tastemakers House is a two-floor Brownstone is in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant, less than two blocks from the Tomkins Ave strip of restaurants, bars, and happenings for the culture. It is the NYC home of Tastemakers Africa. Filled with art and mementos from a life spent around the world, the place is rich with color, heritage, and style. The concept for the house was a collaboration between Blk Mkt Vintage and the founder/resident of the space. The indoor top floor lends itself well for photo shoots, cocktail parties, and intimate sit-down dinners (the formal dining table seats 8-10). There is a DJ table made out of live-edge wood, a full-sized kitchen, and a FRAME TV that can be used to display presentations, film, and other media (photography, video, connected to Spotify for music). The outdoor area has a beautiful Japanese teak wood bench and table set built-in. Additional amenities include a Weber grill, firepit, hose, and ample amount of space. Access to the space is through the main door to the Brownstone, access to the backyard is through the garden level. Beyond the space itself, we have access to chefs, DJs, A/V teams, photographers, and videographers if needed.

We did not use the space and were refunded in full due to its condition.
Faith B. booked a wedding reception for 80 people
We LOVED our experience with this space. The host Cheraé was so gracious and open and made sure we had everything we need. We got married on the West Coast and wanted to have an easy way to celebrate with some of our East Coast friends. The backyard was the perfect setting to have a DJ and set up a bar and then we had food inside and folks hung out and were able to have more intimate conversations there. We'd definitely book again. Thank you SO much for making it such a special occasion for us!
Reggie W. booked an event for 100 people
This space is amazing and Cherae is quick to respond and accommodating. I’d definitely rent from her again!
LySaundra C. booked an event for 75 people
I hosted an arts showcase and panel using the outdoor space. Everyone LOVED the ambiance! It was helpful to have additional seating and the area was the perfect size for our band to provide an intimate performance. Cheraé was very responsive from booking to walkthrough to wrapping up. We had minor hiccups during set up, but she was available to help trouble shoot. Since it was a smaller event and in the backyard, we didn't have someone available to monitor the front door beginning to end for any latecomers; keep that in mind if you have an event that involves registration.
Thank you, we're on it!
