We loved 501!

After initially booking with the Green Building across the street, and the unfortunate circumstance of it closing down, we explored other options in Brooklyn before quickly realizing there was no better deal than 501! We (and our guests) loved the cool Brooklyn vibe of the place, and despite all the current construction in the area (we didn't even bat an eye at it on our wedding day!), had the best day ever. Abby, Alexandra and the team accommodated several site visits, when we were first trasferring our contract and when our parents came to town and wanted to see the place. They also scheduled a bar tasting for us so we could sample the wines and cocktails before settling on our bar package! The day of ran so smoothly and the entire staff was so nice and accommodating, we just felt so supported and at ease. All of their recommendations for vendors were on point, and we got to keep our ice cream truck for dessert! Overall, great team, great experience, great value for Brooklyn!

Incredible venue!

We were originally going to get married at The Green Building, but when that closed down they moved us to their sister venue 501 union. What at first felt like a “backup” immediately became a beloved venue. Abby and the team were wonderful, communicative, and accommodating. The space itself is stunning, and was truly perfect for our wedding. Cannot recommend more highly!

Amazing Staff

501 Union was a wonderful venue that worked so well with us! After a very unlikely circumstance knocked our first venue out of contention, 501 Union was very quick to work with us and make sure the ball was rolling for our big day. Special shout out to Abby who was such a pleasure to work with, always responded quickly and made everything easier for us. The staff on the big day were also so helpful, so responsive, and contributed to the fun vibe of the day. Their referrals to were top notch - their preferred vendor for staffing, Parties N All, were awesome on the day of. Overall, it was a great experience made smooth by 501 Union and I would definitely recommend it to others.
