Why We Like This Place

  • It’s a neighborhood treasure: This turn-of-the-century firehouse has been restored to its original period beauty, complete with antique doors, lighting, and plumbing fixtures. Walls are lined with crisp white subway tile and rich wood elements, a restored silver tin ceiling shines overhead, and you can still see the original firepole and other historic details.
  • A secret garden awaits outdoors: Exchange vows on a stone wedding platform set against a backdrop of beautiful trees and flowers. City brick and slate create the perfect surface for a cocktail hour, barrels add rustic charm, and a lush ivy wall with chirping birds brings even more nature to the setting.
  • Their new bridal suite is irresistible. With appointments like a vintage tub, couch, bed, and complimentary toiletries, plus a private patio, this is the perfect retreat for getting ready or just relaxing. (Available for an extra fee.)
