Our wedding at Deity was perfect! Everything went smoothly and we couldn’t have had a better time! All of our guests have been telling us they had such a great time and how perfect the venue was--especially for a wedding on New Year’s Eve! We were fortunate to have met Caio when we saw the venue for the first time and he was very open and informative about the space. We absolutely loved the tree on the first floor and even though the venue was a bit small he explained it actually can accommodate over 100 people easily. We really loved the cozy vibe with the exposed brick and strung lights. You can easily miss this place if you are just walking down the street so it felt like a hidden speakeasy in the middle of Brooklyn. If you are looking for a different experience than your typical catering hall wedding then this is a cool option. When we arrived at Deity the day of the wedding, everything looked like we had pictured it and talked about with Yulia beforehand. Yulia anticipated all of our needs and was great to work with. She was able to schedule some moments alone for us during the wedding which was great and memorable since the day did go so fast and there were many people to see. We were slightly worried about all the transitions from room to room, but Yulia and the staff made it seem effortless. We were worried about getting some of the elderly people up and down the stairs but Yulia made it work and there is a chair lift. The food was delicious! Our guests were raving about the filet mignon and everything really was delicious. The only thing we really didn't like was the asparagus, which was rather thick and tough to eat. Other than that, we really enjoyed all the food, including the cocktail hour--the braised short rib sliders and grilled cheese bar were a real hit! We were also extremely happy with Jamal the DJ. It was cool that the venue comes with the DJ and the chairs, linens, food and even basic decor for the tables.

Our wedding at Deity was a dream. From the gorgeous bridal suite, to the delicious food, the incredible DJ, the amazing staff, and the fun…everything was wonderful. We felt supported throughout the entire process both pre-wedding and day-of. We couldn’t believe how much was taken care of by the venue, and they certainly delivered.
Every member of staff was attentive, kind, and went out of their way to make sure our day was as carefree as possible. I fully expected to experience intense stress levels throughout our entire wedding day, and kept saying how I wished I could attend my own wedding just to enjoy it! Well fortunately, everything functioned so smoothly that we were able to relish in every moment. The Deity staff are super professional, and seemed to have thought of it all. Since our wedding, guests have routinely approached us complimenting the food as the “best wedding food they’ve ever had,” gushing about the amazing DJ (we worked with Jamal), and praising the beautiful venue. We fell in love with the space at Deity immediately, and felt it offered the perfect Brooklyn charm we were looking for. We didn’t feel a need for extra DIY decorations, or major floral arrangements. The environment was clean, chic, and romantic as-is.
We can’t say enough good things about the DJ, Jamal, who played the most on-point tracks for our crowd throughout the evening. I was astonished to see how many people remained at the end of the night, still partying and enjoying the dance floor.
Food and drink service throughout the evening was wonderful. The entire staff was always on top of things, and never seemed to miss a beat.
All in all we are so happy we chose to have our wedding at Deity, and can’t thank the team enough. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a perfect and turn-key wedding venue in NYC!

I really wished that I was a guest at my own wedding. On my wedding day, everything was streamlined and no one was bored. Every single one our guests talked about how beautiful the space was and how much they loved the food. The Deity team was so accessible for any and all questions, they are very upfront about costs, and they are extremely organized and professional. I couldn’t be happier with my wedding day because these guys made it so easy.

I LOVE working at Deity!! First of all, the space is gorgeous. It is a photographer's dream with beautiful exposed brick walls on every floor and a very clean, fresh, and warm vibe. If you choose to get the bridal suite (which I recommend!), the sun drenched apartment is second only to the roof deck with a pool and beautiful sunset views. Even without the bridal suite, the space is a dream. That is just the cherry on top! I have to take a moment to say that I was not bribed or paid to write this review. I actually love the space this much. OK, moving on.... I am completely smitten with the staff there. They are somehow a totally calming presence while also being extremely on top of things. They really care about their clients (AND their vendors), and they just want everyone to have a wonderful experience. Caio, James, Haley, and the entire staff invited me onto their team with warmth and a spirit of absolute teamwork. Again, I have to reiterate that these are my real feelings. I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating, but I'm actually obsessed with Deity.
