    Magic in the heart of Long Island City

    The Foundry is NYCs best kept, big secret. The space is gorgeous and whimsical. Every square inch is prettier than the next there are endless possibilities of what you can do with the venue that the sky is the limit. All angles are photogenic and charming. It's spotless and grows more beautiful throughout the day. There are multiple pockets at the venue that you can opt to rent for your event. Each unique room transforms your event into a new and intimate setting. Everything from the Main Space, The Green Room, Albra Room, and the Pool Room help ensure that your event is unforgettable. The Foundry has multiple terraces that are worth visiting and investing in as well. It's like finding a fairytale inside of Manhattan. It truly is a stunning contrast between the natural and industrial elements. Our guests can't stop raving about the gorgeous space and to us, it was a dream. Beyond raving about the space itself, The Foundry has two of the sweetest and most hard-working employees that represent the space. Angela and Lindsey were incredible from our initial visit right through to our wedding day. They are extremely welcoming, detail orientated, have a wealth of knowledge, and communicative. They quickly responded to emails, and patiently answered every question we had. Both Angela and Lindsey are the dream team that ensures that everything in the space goes off without a hitch. Both are so helpful and lovely, and an absolute joy to work with. Together they helped make our perfect day the day it was and as stress-free as possible. If you are considering this venue for your event, we highly recommend it. We know the idea of the raw space could be intimidating but having the opportunity to create an authentic space filled with all your loved ones is an indescribable feeling. Especially if it comes packed with a list of the best vendors in the city and the two hardest-working employees in the industry.
    We love The Foundry and know you will too.

    Fairytale venue!

    This is a very delayed review for our wonderful wedding September 29, 2018 at The Foundry! Angela and Lindsey were so helpful during the many emails and site visits to make my dream wedding come to life! The history of this space is palpable, and the loving care and maintenance does not go unnoticed. There are countless options for configuration depending on which spaces you use for ceremony, reception, etc. Our guests were truly wowed by the venue and our wedding felt like a fairytale!

    It is no wonder it can be challenging to find Saturday availability, but the calendar on their website is extremely accurate. I kept checking dates and magically a Saturday in September became available through another party changing their date. We were lucky enough to have already done a tour of the space, so we were able to secure the date. If you are interested in the venue make sure you do a site visit, let the girls know, and keep checking the calendar!

    Beautiful venue in an unexpected location!

    The Foundry is an amazing space that strikes a balance between industrial (exposed brick, metal) and soft and polished (ivy covering the walls and beautifully finished spaces that aren't too rustic). It is also an extremely flexible space as they have multiple rooms that you can choose to rent or not for your event. The entire space is yours for your event (they don't put anything else in the rooms that you don't use). One of our biggest reasons for booking The Foundry is their greenhouse, which has walls covered in ivy on the inside. We had our wedding in January and were really excited that we would have some greenery! The staff is very professional and easy to work with. We were so delighted with how our wedding turned out.

I always love working at The Foundry. It used to be just down the street from where I lived, and now that I moved further away, it's definitely one of the things I miss. Beautiful location - great staff!
