The W Loft
Head to Williamsburg to experience this popular rooftop Brooklyn wedding venue, which offers an expansive view of Manhattan and Queens. The newly-renovated rooftop is shared with a glass-walled indoor space, so guests can easily travel back and forth, or you can move the party indoors when the weather isn’t cooperating, but still enjoy a fabulous view. The 1,600-square-foot rooftop deck accommodates about 50 guests while the interior hosts up to 80 seated and 150 standing guests. While the rooftop isn’t covered, couples can rent, install, and remove their own tented structures (https://www.weddingwire.com/wedding-ideas/factors-to-consider-before-you-plan-a-tented-wedding) for a bit of outdoor cover. Weddings of just about any theme will find inspiration in The W Loft, the white pillars, modern tiling on the bar, and excess of glass that allows lots of natural light to pour in will certainly appeal to minimalist and modern couples.
This former factory is a Williamsburg stunner that’s been rehabbed and repurposed exclusively for unique events.
