Food and Beverage: You can bring in your own caterer (with approval from Brooklyn Grange) for an additional fee of $1,000, or use one of their preferred vendors such as Roberta’s, Fig and Pig, or the Cleaver Company , whose prices start at $225/person for food, beverage, staff, and rental equipment. You can arrange to have liquor brought in either via a caterer or licensed liquor distributor (which means you can most likely get good rates).

The Report:

Started in 2010, the Brooklyn Grange is a commercial urban farm that grows and sells produce such as tomatoes, greens, peppers, kale, chard, herbs, carrots, radishes, and beans. Brooklyn Grange has two farms, one in Long Island City and the other at the Brooklyn Navy Yard (which this post is about). Located on top of Building Number 3 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brookyn Grange is a 12-story building with a 65,000 sq. foot rooftop covered in soil with vegetables and flowers. With views of the dock, East River, and downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn Grange has a paved deck and patio area that can be used for ceremonies, sit-down receptions, and dancing.

 Woman Getting Married Says:

I love the idea of having an urban rooftop farm wedding, especially in Brooklyn. While the venue has amazing views, supports urban agriculture and has ample parking next door, the lack of inside space along with a hefty price tag is a bummer. I’m also not a fan of pricing a venue according to size vs. day. It would be great if they could establish a flat rate regardless of wedding size, especially since they aren’t providing any extras that would appear to influence that. Compared to wedding venues such as The Foundry this might be less expensive (the venue fee for a Saturday wedding at the Foundry, regardless of size, will run you around $16,000 for multiple spaces), but unfortunately you don’t have the inside/outside options to play with and your average base cost could end up in the same ballpark. Overall while I really love this concept and space, I think the rental fee should be closer to $6,000 than $10,000 for a 125+ guest reception .
