I am extremely disappointed and frustrated with Bridgewaters and the team behind it, The Glazier Group. After booking my wedding at 24 Fifth, we found out online that they lost their lease. After calling them, they replied and rebooked us at Bridgewaters. Bridgewaters then faced Sandy related challenges and issues with their landlord. After being told they would be open for my wedding, a month before we were forced to switched locales as the venue was not open. I was told I would receive a full refund before my wedding date. Well, 7 weeks after my wedding, I still haven't received my refund and now Bridgewaters is not replying to emails or phone messages. Completely unprofessional, unacceptable conduct. I strongly urge anyone to reconsider giving this company ANY of your money.

I want to start off this review by saying that I'm a perfectionist and I'm not an easy customer. That being said, having my wedding at Bridgewaters was the best decision I could have made. We worked with Eva, who went above and beyond to ensure that every detail I planned (and trust me, there were a lot of them) was perfect. She was quick to respond to emails and was always happy to find a way to make my ideas work. I don't think I could possibly thank her enough for all that she did for our wedding.

Our bridal attendant, Andrew, was such a delight. He always showed up with a new drink for my husband (!) and I and he tried his hardest to get us to eat. As many brides can agree, though, it's really really hard to eat on your wedding day.

As for the venue itself, it was breath taking. All of my friends and family raved about the views and how beautiful the room was. No one had ever been to a venue quite like Bridgewaters before and I know that my wedding will not soon be forgotten.

Countless people came up to us raving about the food. They said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding, but more than that, said the food was 5 star restaurant quality. Also- and I'm betting not many people can say this- we received tons and tons of compliments on our wedding cake! Thanks to Eva's recommendation, we chose Funfetti flavored cake and everyone went crazy for it. I should also note that the cake was not only tasty, it was beautiful. All brides probably say this, but I think I may have had the most beautiful cake of all time. Thank you to the wonderful pastry staff who created such a masterpiece. :) Additionally, we opted to have Butlered Sweets and what a great choice that was (again, Eva's idea!). I'm still thinking about those mini pumpkin pies. :)

All in all, everything at Bridgewaters was perfection. The room, the views, the staff, the food.

I felt like I was in a dream. The most beautiful dream I could ever imagine.

Wow. Still on high even after the honeymoon. Beth at Bridgewaters was our contact and was outstanding. So easy to work with, and so flexible. Dealt with our millions of questions and handled everything like a true professional. Such a perfect day, and it was so nice to sit back and let Beth and the staff at Bridgewaters take care of everything. Day of all we did was dance and enjoy ourselves and that's they way it should be! Special nod to our bridal attendant Andrew who was on top of everything. Anytime we needed him he was was magically there with whatever we needed. From dress fixes to tux cleanups to drinks, Andrew was the man! Special thanks as well to our captain and maitre di, Sonya and Alan for making everything run so smoothly!

I can't stress enough how great this venue is, and we saw LOTS of places before picking this one. (I think about 15-20) Brooklyn Bridge in the background, huge space, huge dance floor. We had about 205 people and it was great for us. You can definitely fit a lot more then that in the room if you needed to.

The food was outstanding. Like most brides and grooms we missed half of it, but we heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests, and we definitely have some friends that are big time foodies and/or in the food industry.

We just loved the space, partially because it's different. No big fancy ornate chandeliers on the ceiling which would not be our style at all. The lighting/ decor of Bridgewaters is by and large done for you already, meaning your florist doesn't have a ton of work to do after the centerpieces and whatever else you have them do, and this will save you some money as well. We definitely got some positive feedback on the location being different, but very much in a good way!

Perfect venue for a perfect day!

Bridgewaters is just beautiful! It is not a typical wedding venue in New York. It is very industrial looking and you can do a lot with the space, but the views are UNREAL. Even though we barely ate everyone said the food was amazing. I can tell you the wedding cake was incredible. The staff is so professional and they take such good care of you. My planner - Beth - is one of my favorite people. My bridal attendant Andrew thought of every little detail. I wasn't happy with their "asian station" option at cocktail hour and they completely changed it to my tastes. It was just a phenomenal experience and I can't imagine getting married anywhere else. My only complaint would be that the cocktail hour was a little crowded and we only had 220 people and the minimum is 200. I don't think having 20 less people would have made it much better, but no one seemed to notice. I would get married there again in a second.

Working with Beth at Bridgewater's was an absolute joy. She was flexible with ideas, always quick to respond, and worked within our budget. We ended up doing a daytime BBQ wedding, ceremony on site. The whole event was GORGEOUS. People raved about the food, and since we didn't get a chance to actually eat at our wedding, they packed up 'to go' boxes so we could enjoy later. You have a bridal attendant on the day of, who takes care of all the little things that plague a worried bride's brain. They made the day go flawlessly, and of course the pictures you get with such a beautiful venue are breathtaking. I couldn't imagine having our wedding any place else!

I cannot begin to describe how happy I am that we had our reception at Bridgewaters. Eva was my point of contact and she was amazing. She helped me through every detail, suggesting things I wouldn't have thought about, and truly becoming my partner in crime. She really became like a friend and I'm desperately thinking of ways we can keep in touch. When you book a venue there are a few things that are up in the air, like the food. It was a wild card and one that I am so glad I took a chance on. Nearly every guest has commented to me on how delicious the food was. How much there was, how tasty it was, the presentation...spectacular. Definitely get the Butlered Sweets. They are a great addition at the end of the evening. I'm from Texas and it's hard to impress us with steaks. I have one Texan guest who won't stop talking about how blown away he was by the steak. Our Bridal attendant, Andrew, must be the best Bridal attendant in the industry in the world. And that's not an exaggeration. From getting me drinks, to bandaids by the bucket fold, to making sure my husband and I were at the right place at the right time, to fixing my bustle...twice. He was there for me every step of the way. My little fairy godfather he was. This was by far the best decision I made when planning my wedding. And you'd be a fool not to have your wedding there.

Bridgewaters is the perfect venue for a NYC wedding. The view is breathtaking and really distinguishes Bridgewaters from other NYC venues that don't have as much of a city feel to them. The food was great, the service was excellent, and it's the best value of any NYC venue we looked at. The bridal attendant tended to our every request and ensured everything flowed smoothly the entire night. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

We just had our wedding at Bridgewaters and it was fantastic. We worked with Beth and she was the nicest, most professional and most helpful person. I have worked in event planning so my expectations were high but Beth went above and beyond. She was so easy to work with and so responsive. Our wedding was just perfect. Bridgewaters is beautiful and all the guests said the food was the best ever. Not only did everything go very smooth during the night but when it came time to pack up the team at Bridgewaters took care of everything. Our bridal attendant, Andrew, packed our wedding cake plus extra pieces for our parents. He was also terrific during the whole night. Taking care of anything we needed. I would tell anyone who wants to get married in Mnahattan that Bridgewaters is the place to do it. The views and food are amazing but the staff is what makes this place 5 star!

We had our wedding reception at Bridgewate's in May 2011 and from the moment we first met with Beth, we were impressed with what the venue had to offer. The space we chose at Bridgewaters (the Museum Club) was plenty large enough to fit our guests and included a large outdoor balcony that everyone really enjoyed during our cocktail hour. The venue does all their own catering, provides the cake, as well as table linens, candles etc., so after we booked it, we had very little else to plan.
The food - both during the cocktail hour and the seated dinner - was outstanding and our guests have not stopped raving about it. I only wish I had gotten to eat more of our hors devours during the cocktail hour! I was also very happy with how the cocktail hour was run - I have been to weddings where its difficult to get a drink because of a crowded bar, but our reception had two bars set up as well as a passed signature cocktail, so no one had a problem getting drinks and there was plenty of delicious food around for everyone.
Bridgewaters provided exceptional service -- their staff was fantastic. The early stages of planning with Beth were made very easy, as she was always very professional, friendly and prompt to respond to emails, and was even at the reception when we arrived to explain to us how everything would run and make sure there were no problems. The day of staff were fantastic as well, especially bridal attendant Jo who made sure we always had a drink in hand, that we looked good (she told me and helped me when my hair started to fall out a bit) and just generally made it so we did not have to worry about a single thing.
The flow the evening also went perfectly, with meals served quickly and no long, dull pauses in between and entrances, dances, etc.
Our guests said our reception was one of the nicest, classiest, most fun weddings they have ever been to, and I have no doubt that we owe much of that to Bridgewaters.
