Rent our Space for Your Event

Irondale is a wonderful place for a wedding, benefit, or any event. Our unique nineteenth century Sunday-school-turned-theater, is a beautiful venue. Theatrical and contemporary with a feel of the past, this historic room has a wrap-around balcony surrounded by stained glass windows.

Irondale is the perfect space for a ceremony and reception or just a reception. There is room to seat 200 guests at tables and still have room for a dance floor. The wrap-around balcony is the perfect place to serve cocktails after the ceremony and before dinner.

Irondale is located just 3 blocks from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and near stops for most subway lines and the Long Island Railroad. Let us help make your day special.

Irondale does not have a contract with any vendors, so you are welcome to use anyone you wish, though we do have recommendations if you are looking for them.
