The whole Deity team went above and beyond to make our wedding night special and a night to remember! From the planning to the day of our wedding, the staff was attentive, responsive and so helpful. On the day of our wedding they were on top of everything. They made sure to check-in with my husband and I and helped make the evening flow seamlessly. The decor was beautiful, the food was delicious and many of our guests were in awe at how beautiful the space was!

Overall Deity made our wedding dreams come true and we cannot thank them enough for everything.

The venue dazzled! Guests felt the place was comfortable -- space for the dancers, for the drinkers, for people who just wanted to sit and watch. A few mentioned that food was light and they didn't eat enough. As the bride and groom, we felt that plates and glasses were removed too quickly from tables, ledges, etc. For example, my husband has just started eating a piece of apple pie, when he turned to pose for a picture, put the pie down, and a minute later it was gone. Also, I was surprised that the bar tab reached $3500 so quickly. It was communicated that guests were drinking Prosecco which ran $9 a glass. We were unaware that this drink was on our list of offerings. We would never have allowed it! The DJ was great, played just the music we were in the mood for.

My husband Rhett and I got married at Deity late July. We were victims of the rebar closing--for those of you who aren't familiar, please google rebar, brooklyn and get wedding insurance--we paid in full to be married there and lost every penny! The reason I share this is that Deity's owners, Ciao and Christine, were our 'wedding angels'. THEY SAVED OUR WEDDING!

They reached out to the jilted rebar couples on social media days after rebar's news broke (there were over 200 couples!) and then worked tirelessly over the next two weeks to meet with every couple who was interested in booking their space. They truly went out of their way to accommodate us and make planning our wedding a second time as painless as possible.
It's been over three months since our wedding and our friends and family are still raving about our day! They loved that the night was broken up into three 'worlds' each floor has a different feel and truly keeps the party interesting! This is the 'Choose your own adventure' of weddings...attending a wedding there is an immersive experience, not soon to be forgotten. Also, food was delicious, don't miss the lamb chops, and the cheeseburger slides.
To wrap up, I recommend Deity based on the following:
1) Uniqueness: the venue is like no other in the city. The history of the building, the decor, and the concepts of each floor are each gorgeous. Ask Ciao about the history!
2) Staff & Management: The owners hearts are truly into this business and it shows. Their manager Jay (we were calling him 'the boss' all night!) was amazing and runs a TIGHT SHIP. He's got many years of experience and literally anything that came up the night of our wedding he was ready for--and we had a few strange scenarios pop up.
3) DJ: DJ Trauma was AMAZING. We're pretty picky with music too, and he truly outdid himself.
4) BEST DAY EVER: Our guests (and us!!) had an amazing time, and one of our guests even said our wedding was the best day of his life! Imagine that! ;)

Our wedding at Deity was everything we hoped for and more. Located in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn, it was easy to access for guests coming from in town and out. In fact, our guests traveled from three different countries and were all amazed at the city and Deity itself. The space is absolutely gorgeous and the staff helped to make it magical, working with us to give us the experience we desired. The personal attention and organization was thorough, prompt, and deeply appreciated. The food was outstanding and guests are still asking us to get the recipes from Deity's chef. The owners- Kristine and Caio - went out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect. We could not have asked for a better experience!

You never really expect a place to be this exceptional. Good, maybe great, but so perfect? The entire preparation and process seemed so clear and straightforward, we were 'almost' concerned that they were missing something! Nothing could be further from the truth.

The food was incredible. We still hear about it. The worst thing about it was trying to make selections from the incredible list. That said, I imagine you could not choose something wrong.

The staff was flawless. They were the perfect balance of attention and discreetness. Each person did their role exceptionally. I've never been at a wedding where I saw so many guests take the unsolicited time to tell the bride and groom how thoughtful and professional that service and staff were during the event - for months afterward too! In fact, the team there stepped up and adapted to a few minor changes we (bride and groom) suggested during the event. No one even noticed the switch.

Deity flowed their process to meet our style, our family's needs and our hopes for the event, not the other way around. Being an all-in place can seem concerning, but controlling your event is not what they are about. It was all about helping us craft it the way we wanted it. I can be occasionally accused of being too cynical, so it's something for me to say that this was the best day of my life to date, and - marrying the love of my life aside! - it's in part because of Deity.

Two weeks before our wedding, the owner of our original venue shut the doors and took our money. We were scrambling about what to do and the same Friday that we found out, I emailed Deity to see if they had any availability. Caio, the owner, replied to me within a half hour and we had an appointment set up for the next day.
Despite having two events the next day, Caio and Christine took the time out to show us around and explain how weddings at Deity work. They were an absolute godsend and we would not have a wedding without them. They worked with us and did everything they possibly could to make our day amazing.
And our wedding was fabulous. Everyone has said how amazing the food one, how much fun they had on the dance floor (DJ Trama rocked) and how great the staff was. The food wasn't just wedding good, it was delicious and we're still craving it.
I can't say enough good things about Deity, Caio, Christine and Jay. We adore them and really can't thank them enough for giving us the best wedding we could have had anywhere.

I just was married this past Saturday (3/8/14) and I recommend Deity as a venue to anyone who is looking to get married in NYC or the boroughs. Right from the get go, Caio, Kristine, and their staff were flexible, responsive, and extremely attentive. All of my guests raved about the venue's decor and the overall space as a whole. Being able to utilize all 3 floors made the wedding day that much more exciting. I can't say enough great things about this venue - the location, the space, the staff, the food (which was excellent), and the dancing. Thanks again for a memorable, fantastic day!

My husband and I were married at Deity on September 7, 2013, and I have Deity's owners and staff to thank for giving us the best night of our lives!

Deity is a "very Brooklyn" building located on Atlantic Avenue that was initially constructed as a synagogue around the turn of the century and is now an event space (i.e., all they do are weddings and parties). Each of it's three floors has a very different feel -- the upstairs loft space where we had our ceremony and dinner has exposed brick, hardwood floors and string lights; the cocktail lounge where we did our cocktail hour and cake cutting has stained glass windows and a giant tree growing in the middle of the room; and the basement dance floor area is perfect.

Deity is an amazing value -- priced substantially lower than many other Brooklyn venues.

The owners/managers are a husband and wife, and they were incredibly friendly, helpful, and responsive throughout the whole process -- we rarely had to wait more than 24 hours for an email response, which is important especially when things are down to the wire.

They provide all the catering, tables, alcohol, staff, menu cards, even the DJ (for only $500 additional fee) -- this was really important with us as we wanted to do as much "in house" as possible. That said, they regularly work with vendors and the set up of our flowers and cake went flawlessly, as did our ceremony musicians and the cocktail hour band. These guys are consummate professionals -- our wedding was seamless.

The food was wonderful -- they serve it either family style or buffet, and we went with family style. It was delicious, as were our signature cocktails. The staff was friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive -- exactly what you want from the staff at your wedding venue. DJ Trauma was wonderful -- we gave him a general sense of what kind of music we like and he put together an amazing playlist -- no cheesy wedding music, just a really fun dance party vibe. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We had our wedding ceremony & reception at Deity this past weekend and it was beyond expectations. The space is sexy and unusual and the three levels all had a specific vibe that was perfect for each stage of the wedding: the upstairs loft where we had the ceremony fit 100+ pp easily. Urban chic with floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick, lots of light, plus a serene bridal dressing room. The lounge where we had dinner was sexy with the stained glass, low lighting, lounge seating - perfect for guests mingling and sitting wherever they wanted. The food was delicious - Caio and Kristine tailored their menu offerings to suit our guests' taste. And the nightclub was tops - DJ Vinnie laid a blanket of funk and delivered just what we wanted - a sexy party with no over-the-top wedding cheeze. Caio and Kristine were hands-on every step of the way and brought a relaxed sense of total ease that made our wedding just what we wanted. Only comment: the wait service just needs to take the cake in the back to carve it up instead of in front of the guests because they were all tipsy and grabby by that time (the guests not the servers) and things got a little bit messy (but still all good). 5+ stars - love these guys, love this place. Highly recommended for weddings, parties, bar/bat mitzvahs - these guys can do anything. Mad props for Deity.

My husband and I were looking for a fun and unconventional location to host our wedding reception. We decided to throw a cocktail reception and found the space at Deity was the right mix of sexy and romantic.

I loved their chandeliers and the ambiance. The space was great for the cocktail party we wanted with just enough space for socializing and dancing. Kristine, the owner was helpful and allowed us many visits to design our set up. She offered advice and support. Kristine even referred us to a wonderful DJ.

We had so much fun.
