How Will Grandma Get There? DUMBO, if you’re not familiar with the term, stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. The area has had a huge resurgence in the past 10 years, with art galleries, restaurants, bars, and businesses making it a real center of Brooklyn. However, hotels are still somewhat limited, though there is a decent selection, with a Marriott and Hotel Indigo close by. Out-of-town guests may want to consider stay in Lower Manhattan, in which case you could potentially arrange for transportation to/from the venue (or offer Uber gift cards).
Party On! Events can go until 1 a.m.
The Dumbo Loft is located on the bottom floor of 155 Water Street, which was once used to manufacture steam fittings in the early 1900’s. The Dumbo Loft is a member of BK Venues, which features 7 lofts/venue spaces in Brooklyn such as the Dumbo Spot, the W Loft, and the Greenpoint Loft.
Woman Getting Married Says:
If you’re looking for a DIY wedding venue space in Brooklyn that won’t make your wallet cry, this is a great option. The space is big and raw yet still nice enough to be considered finished. The biggest bummer I think is that it’s located on the ground floor, meaning passerby’s can see your wedding through the gorgeous windows they have. However, if this doesn’t bother you then this is a definitely consideration. I think it would be a fun idea to get married (weather permitting) in Brooklyn Bridge Park and have your reception at the loft. Putting a lock on the fence afterwards (like the couple pictured above, did) would be so sweet!
