We held a non-profit meeting of about 100 professional at Senate Garage. The feel and look to Senate Garage holds true to the spirit of old time America and is an excellent example of how a re-purposed structure can carry its beauty through the decades. SG was extremely accommodating and able to work with our needs to provide everything we required to hold a modern, quaint and polished professional meeting. The sound/acoustics throughout the space was superb. This venue is located in a great location to Downtown happenings in Kingston. Our group will be happy to return!

The best place to get married in the Hudson Valley
Get married here! Save yourselves the stress of looking at dozens of venues and just choose the Senate Garage. My wife and I got married here two months ago, and now that the dust has settled and the pictures have been developed, we are happier than ever with our choice.
First and most importantly, the people there are top-notch in terms of professionalism, organization, and kindness. We met the owner Judy and worked mostly with April - both were delightful in every sense.
The venue is staggeringly beautiful. Our guests have gotten in touch in the past few weeks and told us how unique, gorgeous, and fun the space is. April worked with us to customize it to our style, and the results were amazing. Bridge Creek Catering, the team that handles Senate Garage weddings, were also outstanding (see their reviews for confirmation) and work extremely well with the Senate Garage team and space. Collectively, they made an A-team that we felt had our backs at every turn.
As far as planning, April kept a great balance of staying in touch and keeping things moving while still giving us space to make decisions. She navigated the state park system for our outdoor ceremony onsite (recommend this!), which saved us a lot of time and stress. The Senate Garage also provided us a great packet if local vendors and artists for every aspect of our celebration (shout out to The Sheeley House for accommodations, Silver Arrow Band for music, Chops Grille for the afterparty, Le Canard Enchaine for the rehearsal dinner, All-Transportation Network for shuttles, The Dancing Tulip for flowers, and Jonathan Gies for custom signage and artwork).
I can't say enough good things about the Senate Garage space and team. They made our wedding perfect (to us!), and we'd recommend them without hesitation.

We had our dream wedding at the Senate Garage in early November 2017! The venue is absolutely stunning inside and out, set in a great location in uptown Kingston NY, and has an incredible staff that made our experience there as pleasant and stress-free as it could be. My husband and I toured and booked the Senate Garage about two years before our wedding date after falling in love with the rustic decor and intimate atmosphere. While we were on top of our game booking the venue, our wedding planning efforts didn't really kick in until a few months before the big day. All I have to say is thank goodness for the help of the Senate Garage's wedding coordinator, April! Her engagement with us, attention to detail, and willingness to help in any way possible made the weeks leading up to the wedding a lot less stressful than they otherwise would have been. With years of experience and hundreds of events under her belt, April helped us craft the perfect evening for our wedding day and the whole event went off without a hitch...well, just one hitch ;)
Looking back I feel so blessed to have gotten married at the Senate Garage in such a beautiful, industrial, romantic space. We've heard nothing but exceptional reviews from all of our guests and we could not offer a stronger recommendation for any couple considering this venue for their special day.
Takeaways: Book the Senate Garage if you want an industrial, romantic venue (you really don't even need much decor since the walls are already stunning!), start working with April as soon as possible - she will help you create the wedding of your dreams.
