Places : Brooklyn Lyceum

I just thought you all might want to know about an alternative place in Brooklyn- I just spoke to someone getting married at the Brooklyn Lyceum , and I think it is an amazing choice for something a little less traditional. Their wedding is 200+ people, so it holds a lot.

Here are photos of synod hall - it is very affordable, only $2200 for the main hall, the downstairs is also cool and is available for a smaller fee, if you do both you get them total $3500. We are doing both, downstairs for cocktails, then upstairs for dinner/dancing.

We spoke to the house manager a few months ago when we were looking for our venue but never went to see it in person. It's a brownstone museum on the UES that specializes in illustrators like Norman Rockwell and the famous cartoonists of the New Yorker. You get the run of the museum for your wedding and they can do the bar and catering. All rentals are included with the venue. If you want you can also use an outside caterer. Now this might be to good to be true but he said to us they can do a wedding for +75 with sit down dinner and bar for $7000.00.
