How Will Grandma Get There? The Liberty Warehouse is located in the Red Hook area of Brooklyn, which can feel a bit out of the way for some guests (though not impossible). Since it can be a pain taking a subway there, guests can stay nearby in the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott or stay in the city. I would suggest a shuttle or Uber for both options!
Party On! There is no hard cut-off time for events. However, the prices quoted above are generally for a 5-hour rental period without a ceremony, and 6 hours with.
Constructed in the pre-Civil War 1850’s, The Liberty Warehouse is located on Pier 41 in the historic shipping yards of Red Hook, Brooklyn. With views of the New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, and the Verrazano Bridge, the renovated Liberty Warehouse is the only location in New York where you see the Statue of Liberty facing front, looking towards France. With 15,000 sq. feet, the Liberty Warehouse features two large event rooms (the Harbor Room and Governors Room) with large windows facing due west (for sunset views) and two smaller rooms (the Bridge Room) for indoor ceremonies, small events, or cocktails. There is also a wood-burning fireplace in every event room. The in-house catering team is under the supervision of the Water Club and River Café.
Woman Getting Married Says:
If you have a large guest list and are looking for a unique venue close to the city, this might be perfect for you. Given the 175-person Saturday night minimum this is not going to be the spot for a intimate wedding. However ,with space being at a premium in the city, it’s great to have this kind of option for those of you brides with a big family! While I think you’ll be closer to the $250/pp range (as opposed to the $200/pp I calculated the average base cost with), the price is definitely not out of whack with other comparable venues considering there is no additional facility fee (aside from the ceremony cost) and all that’s included (such as valet and attendants). Also, keep in mind the base cost quoted above is for 175 guests rather than the 125 I normally base it on. In terms of food/beverage while I’m not normally a fan of in-house caterers, the food at this venue has gotten great reviews, so you’ll most likely be in good hands. All in all I’m definitely a fan.
