The 9 Best Rooftops in Brooklyn
Planning an event or shooting a production in Brooklyn can be difficult. You need a space that’s versatile, straightforward, and below your event or production budget. Luckily, many Peerspace rooftops in Brooklyn are available for rent, as well as come with indoor spaces plus props and other amenities. What a deal! Plus, you get high-quality photos and detailed descriptions of each venue. As the largest online marketplace for meeting and event spaces, Peerspace allows you to easily search by type of event and location. In addition, you can even filter by price, venue size, and more. Here are several of our favorite rooftops in Brooklyn to book for your next party, production, or company event.
1. Feel on top of the world at this staged apartment with a rooftop deck
This modern apartment was recently built with all the latest styles and amenities — plus it has unreal views of the Manhattan skyline. You can even see the Statue of Liberty from the deck while posing for the perfect shot. The Brooklyn rooftop and apartment is commonly used for photo and video shoots, however, it can also be used for company off-sites, birthday parties, or a romantic date. Like most Peerspace rentals, this space is available to rent by the hour or day. You’ll also have direct contact with the hosts for any questions or help that you may need.
2. Run the town on a Dumbo rooftop near the Manhattan Bridge
If you’re looking for a space that’s a bit more edgy, this is the place! The graffiti-styled illustrations and tiled rooftop give the space a modern, unique style that will set your event or photoshoot apart from all the others. Set directly by the Manhattan Bridge, this spot may pick up noise from the nearby subway and street traffic — so it may be best for just photoshoots as opposed to film productions.
3. Discover your production paradise at this Bushwick loft with natural light and a large rooftop
A rental that puts all other production spaces to shame. Over 1,200 square feet of indoor space complemented by a huge rooftop venue makes this warehouse style loft a dream for video and photo productions — and possibly one of the best rooftops in Brooklyn! Included inside is a bedroom with a swing, a changing room, and an entire wall of windows. A large elevator can take the entire crew up to the rooftop, as well as any equipment you need to bring as well. Hammocks are available upon request to decorate the rooftop. Or, bring in your own equipment and make the rooftop your own personal perch above the city.
4. Be the host with the most at this gorgeous Bushwick townhouse with a private rooftop terrace
Weddings, film shoots, and holiday parties are all welcomed at this charming Bushwick townhouse — which boasts multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, and, of course, a spacious rooftop terrace and outdoor patio. Peerspace venues are meant for memories, and many come with much more than you’d expect. For example, this townhouse comes with a rustic fireplace, bunk beds, marble accents throughout, and quaint light posts on the rooftop.
5. Get the perfect shot at this photo studio with a rooftop deck in Greenpoint
Owned by a photographer and fashion designer, this space is designed to make your film or photoshoot a breeze. The 2,000-square-foot studio includes a large cyc-wall, a skylight, backgrounds, hair and makeup station, kitchen, lighting gear, and more. The 20,000-square-foot rooftop has sweeping skyline views with multiple areas and angles to shoot from. Peerspace venues allow you to look through high-quality photos and available dates to make sure the venue is ready for whatever you need!
6. Host your next off-site meeting in this creative event space in Greenwood
This comfortable studio is a great place for a team meeting, baby shower, or production. Minutes from express trains, the space has Brooklyn charm with modern amenities. And who doesn’t love a classic wooden deck? The host prefers not to rent to parties, so make sure to read the listing before settling on your dream venue. Many hosts are happy to answer any questions and make occasional exceptions depending on the time of year and request.
7. Dazzle your guests on this lovely rooftop garden in Gowanus
This rooftop deck and loft near Prospect Park makes for the perfect wedding reception or birthday party venue. With a comfy living room, eat-in kitchen, restrooms, and Wi-Fi, you’ll feel right at home. Need to rent tables, chairs, equipment or find a caterer? The Peerspace Concierge can help you with all of this and more — and deliver right to your venue.
8. Plan the party of the year on this rooftop in the heart of Brooklyn
This 19,000-square-foot rooftop venue is surrounded by artfully designed canopies, as well as stunning flora and fauna native to New York. A large open dance floor, canopy lighting, plenty of electrical outlets, and a loading dock help set this as one of the best rooftops in Brooklyn. The rooftop accommodates up to 1,800 people standing and 700 seated, and can be reached easily via train or bus. This venue includes four restrooms, some furniture, and A/V equipment included at no additional cost. An onsite caterer is also available at your fingertips for an additional fee. Or, you can bring in outside food with permission from the host.
9. Imagine the possibilities at this blank-canvas venue with a panoramic view on the rooftop in Brownsville
Some of the best rooftops in Brooklyn have indoor and outdoor space available for when the weather gets sneaky. This bright loft is your blank canvas for family get-togethers, office holiday parties, baby showers, team off-sites, and so much more. The 14-foot ceilings and white brick walls lend themselves perfectly to an elegant photoshoot or a backdrop for photos with family and friends. Your crew can then head up to the rooftop for skyline views and, of course, more photos!
