While many event venues are known to planners and their clients, quite often they find themselves asking the question, “but are there any new event venues near me?”
If you are looking for an event venue in the New York area, Alexandra Partow of Alexandra Partow Events shares this list of “secret Brooklyn addresses” which may give you an event venue you hadn’t considered in the past.
Gotham Market is an upscale 16,000 sq. ft. “food court” with gorgeous light fixtures from Urban glass and lots of light. Most recently, Partow held the pre-party for the Brooklyn Youth Chorus 25th-anniversary gala here for 300 guests before a BAM concert across the street. The space offers 7 artisanal restaurants and bars with Brooklyn-local vendors, including Apizza, Boqueria, and Mason Jar.
Kai Studio is a posh 6,000 sq. ft. venue with two lounges which is often perfect for club-theme mitzvahs. Long white velour curtains line the walls, and a beautiful bar complements the space lending an Asian flavor. The mezzanine can be used for kids’ games, for an adult dinner or as a lounge.
Dobbin St. is a tailored event space centrally located in Williamsburg that exudes a minimalist and luxury feel, boasting stunning Manhattan skyline views and vaulted 22-foot ceilings. The venue combines 8,900 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor space. Clients have the use of 4,250 sq. ft. of internal space, and a 750 sq. ft. dedicated client mezzanine. A 900 sq. ft. courtyard is the beautiful hidden gem that completes the space. One flight up is a 3,000 sq. ft. terrace – an exquisite setting for a wedding ceremony or open- air event.
Pig Beach is an award-winning 10,000 sq. ft. outdoor BBQ spot for hipster carnivores replete with string lights and wooden picnic furniture. The menu is an exciting new foray into the Smoked Meat Universe, unlike anything in New York City to date focusing on live wood fire. Pig Beach is also a destination for contemporary cocktails and wine. A new 5500 square foot indoor space is opening in July 2017 creating the perfect indoor/outdoor experience for a bohemian style wedding, party or brand activation.
The Heights Casino is a private racquet and social club located in Brooklyn Heights. Non-members can hold events if sponsored by a member (which can be worked out). The Casino recently renovated the first floor to create a beautiful new dining room to complement the spaces on the same level including a parlor, tennis court which can be tented (home to the BKS Yuletide Ball) and bar area. This venue has a uniquely charming, traditional, old-world feel. (You can even see an antique “carriage call” in the entrance vestibule.)

The Bogart Penthouse is a new event space located in an industrial area of Bushwick, Brooklyn. highlighted with colorful graffiti. The venue features a third-floor loft with 12-foot ceilings opening onto a charming outdoor patio with an urban feel. The dramatic fourth-floor roof deck boasts a fireplace and has elevator access.
Both the loft and the rooftop have a standing capacity of about 300 people. Bogart Penthouse also has a powerful club sound system, LED dance floor and color uplighting. House DJ X-Ray can be hired for your event or you can bring your own. The Brooklyn Zoo occupies the first two floors — a sprawling, graffiti covered fitness space for parkour training, aerial arts, tumbling and trampoline. The venue is perfect for a wedding, party or mitzvah celebration. For an additional charge, kids can enjoy a couple of hours of sports activities with expert trainers at the Brooklyn Zoo while adults enjoy cocktails upstairs, reuniting for dinner and dancing in the loft.
