    An absolutely stunning venue!

    The Bordone LIC was the perfect venue for our Fall wedding! Many of our guests were from out of town and were completely blown away by the views of the skyline. The terrace provides plenty of space for a large ceremony and the indoor space was exactly what we were looking for to be able to create our own wedding look! The blank space allowed us to really make our vision turn into reality. Kimberly was so helpful throughout the planning process, and her and Hector helped make sure everything went smoothly the day of as well. We loved everything about our wedding at the Bordone and would recommend the venue to anyone planning a personalized and magical wedding!

    Gorgeous space that dazzled our guests

    The Bordone was one of the only venues we considered, and as soon as we discovered it, we knew it was the one. From transparent pricing and flexibility around almost all vendors, to Kimberly's responsive and friendly attitude in working with us from start to finish, The Bordone was a great place to host our wedding. Our guests were dazzled by the views of the city skyline from the terrace and the city lights all around once dark fell. We also loved being able to use the upper terrace for some pre-wedding photos with our bridal party and got some truly special shots of the Queensboro Bridge, which holds special significance for us. One of the features of this space is that it's a blank canvas, but the kitchen came with a number of amenities that saved us money, and overall we found that this allowed us to control our costs and decide where to splurge versus save.

    Best place in NYC to have your customized wedding!

    We were very lucky to have our multi-day fusion Bangladeshi Hindu- Italian American wedding at the Bordone in April 2021. The Bordone being basically a white canvas helped us transform the place into 2 completely different vibes and it was a wedding dream come true! How could you not love the unobstructed view of the skyline as the backdrop for your wedding ceremonies! With a blank canvas also comes a lot of work since multiple vendors need to come together to put together your vision- the team at the Bordone (Mary and Kimberly) were so helpful, responsive and accommodating to everything that needed to be done to make our vision for the weekend come to life! There were so many questions and concerns that go into putting the wedding together and they were also so communicative. On the days of, Hector was the manager and he did a ton of work making sure all the vendors were able to load and unload, manning the elevator (they only have 1 but you can have a super elaborate wedding with it) and checking in with the vendors as well as us! I truly felt that the team here was invested in making our wedding amazing. Moreover, it was seamless to move my wedding from 2020 to this year. All of our vendors had a great time working with this venue and I highly recommend this space for any customized event that you want. Our wedding was highly customized and the venue fit everything we wanted. Also during COVID times it was super nice to have both an indoor and outdoor space to host our event in. Our wedding guests were in love with the venue and we are so so happy and lucky to be able to host our special days here!
