Why We Like This Place

Things that make The Green Building a one-of-a-kind Brooklyn event space:

• The venue is whatever you make of it: With 3,000+ square feet of open space, original brick walls, a high ceiling, and gleaming chandeliers, The Green Building’s main room invites you to design a truly unique event.

• You can have an indoor/outdoor celebration: The Green Building features 15-foot floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a courtyard and allow ample light to spill in. Have your ceremony in the courtyard, then bring the party inside!

• Feel like having a little alone time? Hide away from the hustle and bustle of the party in a private suite that can be used for a VIP bar or dressing area.

• Evidence of the building’s history is everywhere: The Green Building’s days as a brass foundry may be over, but remnants of its 1889 beginnings are still there. The original exposed brick and open-beamed ceilings make a particularly cool backdrop for classic photos of the wedding party, cake cutting, etc.

• It’s conveniently located: Situated in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood, this rustic-chic event site is equally accessible to Manhattan-dwellers and suburban New Yorkers alike.
