How Will Grandma Get There? The Montauk Club is located in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn. Guests can stay in nearby hotels such as the Hotel Indigo or in Manhattan. The venue is super close to the Grand Army Plaza subway stop which has the 2,3, and 4 lines.

Party On! Events must stop by 10 p.m. since there are residents that live in the building.

The Report:

The Montauk Club was founded in 1889 and has remained a private club since its founding. The Club House was designed and built in 1891 by the New York architect Francis H. Kimball, who was “inspired by a palace on Venice’s Grand Canal,” according to the venue’s website, and used gothic architecture, carved mahogany woodwork and stained glass windows in his design.

Woman Getting Married Says:

The location of this wedding venue is great for locals getting married with family and friends in the Park Slope area, and even for out-of-town guests it won’t be too terrible of a schlep (I would still offer guests a shuttle to/from the wedding if you have a large number of non-locals coming to your wedding). The 10 p.m. curfew is a bummer, so with that in mind this could be a better bet for a cocktail style reception before moving the after-party elsewhere.
