We had our ceremony at 501 Union and our reception at the Green Building across the street, both owned by the same amazing company. Both venues are gorgeous! The staff at both are sooo friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. They walked us through all the rentals, features of the space, decorating ideas, etc. many times over multiple visits. They were also extremely responsive to our many questions along the way! The staff the day of the event was attentive and friendly, from helping with set up, assisting the other arriving vendors to helping our guests get cars at the end of the night....they were just perfect!

We got sooo many compliments on the beautiful spaces (and we're architects so that was important to us!) We couldn't imagine our wedding being anywhere else!

Thanks again Green Building team!

We loved The Green Building. It was exactly what we were looking for in a venue, however we were slightly disappointed in the lack of air conditioning in the place. We had our wedding on an extremely hot summer day and there was no doubt the place was on fire! Our guests were sweating, we were sweating, our poor officiant was dripping with sweat as he married us. It was a bit ridiculous as to how hot the venue was. Throughout the night our guests fought to stand in front of the fans that did little to nothing to cool them down. As much as I loved the venue, the workers, the overall aesthetics of the place the lack of A/C ruined it for me. My makeup was slowly melting off my face. And The Green Building never once offered to waive any fee knowing how hot the place was. Had we known the A/C was not able to cool the place down, I don't think we would have booked the place for a July wedding. Otherwise, the place is great and the people are great... Just not in the summer.

The building and space is just beautiful. But BEWARE if you have a summer event and want your guests comfortable in the summer. We thought we were renting an air conditioned space. It wasn't. The building owner, a most unlikable and difficult man, will show you specs (after the fact) that 'prove' that the 15-ton unit meets building requirements for a space that size. Whether or not that's true isn't the issue. When someone advertises (and contractually commits to) a space as "air conditioned", the expectation is that guests will stay cool in the summer regardless of the temperature or humidity. His comments the day after the wedding are untrue in the first case ("no building stays cool in this heat") and a reflection that money will not be invested in the space until backs are against the wall ("we'll be addressing the A/C later this week"). Why this wasn't communicated to renters? Money. Plus the attitude that the space is so fabulous that people won't care that the A/C doesn't work. If the A/C doesn't work properly, the claim should be removed from advertising and removed from contracts so renters can make their own decisions. Period.

Second, regardless of the contractual language about bathrooms guaranteed to be in working order, when we arrived on the day of the wedding only 3 of the 4 bathroom stalls were working. The explanation? "We called a 24-hour plumber and they can't come until tomorrow." I wonder if the bathroom would have been fixed if the response had been "I'll pay you double since I have a contractual commitment that 150 people need 4 rest rooms to use instead
of 3" would have drawn a speedier fix?

The owner's attitude ("I'm sorry you were disappointed") is a reflection of his total disregard for anything or anyone who will cause that organization to spend money. Buyer beware.

The Green Building was fantastic! From the staff who helped us out by working with our budget for any additional setup, answering my many questions, or being flexible with our setup and time, to the actual space itself. Everyone who attended loved the venue and the convenience of having both our ceremony and our reception in the same place. We had a large party of 150 guests but still managed to get everyone in and seated for both events. It was initially difficult to contact them via their website so we went directly to the building and the woman who met with us was pleasant and professional. A great deal for the space in Brooklyn as you can bring in any caterer you want.

We had our October 21st Wedding at The Green Building and we could not have been happier! Quin Johnson was beyond helpful in planning and a true pleasure to work with. She made everything so easy for us!
The space is just gorgeous. We had our ceremony and reception inside. The ceremony could not have been more romantic. We used the front wall (the one with the kitchen entrance) and had a light wall hung. The lights combined with the rustic charm of the space was breathtaking. Our cocktail hour was in the outdoor space which looked fantastic with the lights strung along the top. The indoor space was just the perfect size for our reception of 135 seated. We did banquet style tables and still had plenty of room for a dance floor.
I cannot even begin to count the number of compliments we received on how beautiful our venue was. It is truly a magical space.

The Green Building had just the atmosphere my husband and I wanted for our wedding and reception of 150 guests. It has an old-world industrial Brooklyn feel with exposed brick and wood beams. The columnless room allows for a flexible floor plan; the high ceiling makes the room voluminous. The details are simple and give a taste of an era gone by with elegant chandeliers and a small retro speakeasy lounge for a cozy private spot. I fell in love with the space.
Ours was a summer afternoon wedding and the soft light that filtered through the high windows was a lovely touch. We chose a simple decor but the space could easily support more dressing up.
Everyone at The Green Building was helpful, especially Brooke who was excellent at communicating and offering practical options to consider. We were in very good hands. It was a wonderful event- everyone loved The Green Building. I highly recommend this space for weddings or other events.

We got married last weekend and we had our reception at the Green Building. Not only was the reception a fantastic affair but the Green Building was amazing. We wanted an urban chic wedding with a vintage flare. The Green Building staff helped us to make our vision come true and our friends and family were more than impressed with the space. I highly recommend the Green Building and Quin, Meghan and Brooke were more than helpful to answer questions, give recommendations and provide solutions to any challenges. If you are looking for a great space at a reasonable price consider this venue. We did and we couldn't be happier.
