The Coney Island USA team was awesome! The museum space was perfect for our quirky, semi-casual wedding and the Freak Bar downstairs is such a great place for a party. We also utilized the small theater attached to the bar and booked a Side Show! Patrick and the rest of the staff at Coney Island USA really came through and helped to make our event really special. The museum had all the furniture needed for our event, including the ceremony. The Freak Bar, where most guests chose to spend time in during the party has a mix of comfortable seating and the space has that hard to categorize quality that makes for a great party atmosphere. In general, it's just a great place to party. We booked two performers from the Sideshow to give a surprise performance during the reception and it was Awesome!
It's the opposite of a corporate place in so many ways, not just in its theme as a purveyor of all things Coney Island, and I can see how that might make some couples nervous. When we booked, we were simply put on their internal calendar with a handshake agreement that we had the spaces we wanted on the date in question. I can see how it would be difficult or even risky to do that if you had a lot of additional vendors and big guest list and had to lay out a lot in deposits elsewhere. Our event didn't have too many moving parts, but once we were finally ready with our caterer and had planned more details for the day-of, Patrick was very responsive and answered all of our inquiries about space, measurements, etc. Our other vendors were able to visit the site and meet with staff at the museum as well. Info about space rental and prices is also very transparent on their website, which is a lovely change from most venues.
