Places and Spaces

We just updated our venue list with many of places we’ve played since last checking in. This blog needs some serious tending to when the high season rolls around. We thought that we would show you some places our awesome clients have celebrated¬† their weddings this year.

 

501union 501 Union

We have worked here quite a few times and adore the staff here and at their sister space across the street, The Green Building. It’s very central in the heart of Gowanus with an industrial feel and an atrium space too!

 

alder

Alder Manor

We have worked here numerous times and are always charmed by the spooky beauty of Alder. It’s a gilded age mansion with the perfect amount of gentle decay and privacy for a great setting. The main entryway makes for a beautiful place to dance all night on 100 year old marble floors.

 

bam

BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music)

BAM has its own sound staff and a full DJ booth so we are able to offer reduced pricing here. This cheerful couple work in the creative arts and so it meant a lot for them to host their wedding in a space that has such a rich history in the creative realm but also could pack a crowd that wants to dance!

 

battery_gardens_ny_04

Battery Gardens

RIP Zelda. Manhattan’s only wild turkey who we met here. Pretty special to be by the water!

 

bellehavenclub

Belle Haven Club

This private club is gorgeous and is right on the water with a dock view and very kind group of staff. Weddings here sprawl into a tasteful tent and though its a private club they were very cool with a raucous dance floor!

 

boscobel

Boscobel

Stunning view of the Hudson from this high point on a hill! Weddings here are generally tented because there are no other indoor options, but the grounds are absolutely beautiful.

 

botanicalatrium

The Atrium at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

This striking and modern space is an architectural award winning addition to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and has sweeping curved glass walls. Guests can dance inside and wander out onto the candlelit terrace that is both very private and thickly planted with beautiful and rare greenery.

 

carousel

Jane’s Carousel

Though it’s a bit odd how publicly situated this venue is with its shared boardwalk, it has one of the best views we’ve seen and centers around a painstakingly restored classic 1922 carousel. Because it is so open it is great for a cocktail style weddings and it was a fun perk to see strangers on the boardwalk dancing as we DJ-ed for the wedding guests!

 

cubana

Cubana Social

This awesome restaurant in the heart of Williamsburg is owned by a passionate young Cuban chef with immense talent and great taste. It is occasionally rented as a medium sized wedding venue with an open plan, art-deco accents, super-friendly staff and an in-house sound system. It feels so private despite its very central location.

 

dumbo

Dumbo Loft and Dumbo Spot

The Dumbo Loft is a fun and open warehouse style space situated in the heart of Dumbo and they have a smaller space called the Spot, just across the street. The big open dance floor is great for a crowd that gets down!

 

hamhouse

Ham House

This is an impressive hillside Italianate Mansion in Tivoli NY which has been lovingly updated by its owner.¬† Dinner and dancing generally takes place in a Sperry tent set on the clay tennis court, but there’s also a modern pool garden that’s amazing for cocktails that feels like it’s right out of a painting!

 

housingworks

Housing Works

This well loved neighborhood bookstore undergoes a quick transformation and becomes a great space for a medium sized wedding. This couple and their crew were big record collectors so we brought out the weirder stuff and they loved it and partied all night.

 

JamesMichner

James Michener Art Museum

This is a new space enclosed in glass and facing a modern stone courtyard. The museum allows guests to wander through the galleries as well. This couple did an elaborate first dance and magic tricks for one another which was a first!

 

kaaterskill

The Kaaterskill

This venue is not far from Kingston NY in the Catskills and it has recently been updated. There’s an Inn onsite along with several spaces so that you can really take over. Adorable alpacas and sheep graze in a nearby pasture and create an farm atmosphere. The barn space where the party goes down opens out onto grassy fields where the views of the stars are incredible.

 

lace

The Lace Factory

A fun artist couple has been careful not to overdo their updates to this riverside factory building from the 1920’s and it retains so much character and worn wood floors and huge old windows that make for a great dance space. There’s also an enclosed grassy courtyard.

 

mondrian

Mondrian Hotel Soho

This lovely wedding started on the roof terrace of this boutique hotel with an astonishingly broad view of downtown Manhattan. Not kidding, it is the tallest building around at 25 stories. It then progressed into the ultra modern Isola with attached brick garden for dinner and dancing. So pretty for the warmer months.

 

mSIgGt1BLPGiZXM3gy87ujc8JO7UlK-large

India House

This venue is super old-world-NYC down in the financial district. It has such a classic feel of an old club from the Gatsby era with lots of spaces to explore.

 

my-moon

My Moon

Tables must be moved following dinner to accommodate a dance floor at My Moon but that didn’t hamper this fun couple and their guests from having a wild night of dancing. It’s an impressive amount of space for its location in the center of Williamsburg.

 

Elizabeth Ciampa & Kenneth McCulloch

Oheka Castle

This is a very large venue! The ‘castle’ itself was originally built in 1919 and is the second largest private home in the United States.

 

oswego

The Foundry at Lake Oswego

This venue has a state of the art sound system already in place and its riverside location makes it a great place for an evening walk before a wedding. Just a few minutes away from the heart of Portland.

 

The Wythe Hotel

We love the Wythe and Abby frequently DJ’s up on the roof at the Ides. Their wedding/event space has the same broad warehouse feel and includes an attached outdoor terrace plus amazing food from the adjacent Reynards restaurant. It’s completely sequestered from the rest of the hotel, you’d never know it was there but yet there’s tons of space.

 

The NoMad Hotel

This rooftop is a rare oasis in Manhattan that stays clothed in a gorgeous Morrocan inspired tent with elaborate rugs for 9 months out of the year and looks right up to the Empire State Building. There is a tiny cupola up there that would be great for small dinner parties. Their staff couldn’t be more gracious!

 

Grand Ballroom at The Plaza

New York City’s most fabled hotel is the Plaza and the grand ballroom is in no way an understated place to have ones wedding, with gilded moldings and a perched balcony for a DJ booth!

 

The W Union Square

Even though this hotel has been modernized this ballroom retains its prewar feel and design and it enough intimacy for a fun dance party.

 

620 Loft at Rockefeller Center

Up there in a revered building such as this who knew you could find such a tranquil garden and a tastefully minimal loft for dining. On a warm June night this couple came out onto the terrace to dance and party under the skyscraper lights, pretty cool setting.

 

Ramscale Studio

We have worked here numerous times and appreciate how flexible the space is, with 2 terraces and 2 lofts all on the same level. It has a great city view of the Hudson too, which guests can enjoy from the windows when it’s cold outside or from the terrace in warmer months!

 

Greenpoint Loft

This rustic old factory loft space is huge so it needs a bit more sound equipment than our average but it is awesome! It also has a mezzanine, a roof deck and tons of room to do whatever you imagine. The extremely dear couple we worked with here most recently had a crowd of all ages dancing nonstop.
