The holiday season is sneaking up on us—which means it’s almost time to party. If you’re the ringleader among your friends who always puts together memorable dinners or the person who plans your office’s holiday party, now is the time to reserve the space you want to celebrate your 2016.

There are two fabulous venues we highly recommend (as we use them for our own events): The Green Building  and 501 Union.

From an intimate cocktail hour in the lounge followed by a seated dinner for 100 in their light-filled reception space, to an all-out blowout bash for 250 of your coworkers, 501 Union is your spot.

Across the street at The Green Building, entertain 160 guests with dinner and dancing or just let the cocktails flow all night for 250 of your staff. You can even fit 100 more in their outdoor courtyard, and a special perk at this locale is that you can supply your own bar.

Both venues offer special add-ons, from furniture set-up and breakdown to custom lighting designs to a stay for two at Gowanus Hospitality Group’s first luxury boutique hotel, Hasbrouck House, that can be auctioned off to your guests.

Reserve your night now before 501 Union and The Green Building are booked full!

If you feel like the holiday season is sneaking up on you, and you still haven’t secured a spot to celebrate a year well spent with family, friends, and colleagues, you have three beautiful options on Union and Bond: the elegant 501 Union, the gorgeous Green Building, and the intimate Sky Gallery (all of which we love and use for our own events at Brooklyn Based).

All three are managed by Gowanus Hospitality Group and offer a team of experts to take care of every little thing so you can have fun at your own party, whether it’s an intimate night with family and friends or a blowout company bash. Food and drink is provided by Purslane Catering, which is staffed by the same skilled chefs at Rucola. Their farm-to-table ethos translates into delicious, sustainable, beautifully executed meals. The design savvy Starling on Bond can provide everything else you need to make your event look and feel as impeccable as your food, from event styling, to floral design to prop rentals.

There are two holiday party packages available, a cocktail party with passed hors d’oeuvres, or a family-style dinner, along with fun options to make your shindig even more unique, like a signature drink, a photo booth or a mentalist to entertain your guests. They love to get creative, so check out the options, then contact one of their private event managers at 718-522-3363 for more information.

Previously a brass foundry, The Green Building has been transformed into a unique raw space featuring original brick walls and soaring exposed beam ceilings with gorgeous chandeliers. The large open floor plan allows you the ultimate creativity and the flexibility of the space lets you stick with its minimalist beauty or create an opulent atmosphere. The venue accommodates up to 250 guests for a cocktail-style event and 160 for a seated dinner with a large dance floor. (more…)
