You’ve got ugly sweaters to wear and pink elephant gifts to give! We’ve got you covered — here’s a list of places waiting to be your event elf for the Holiday season.
A swanky space located at the intersection of Bedford & Manhattan makes this a perfect party location — especially for 50 person Holiday events. Even better, there are open bar options available (because what’s a Holiday party without the cocktails). Got an office party, gathering of friends and family, or a pop-up event you need a venue for? They got a Pre-fix menu and family style options. Steps from the Nassau Ave G train, it’ll be great for those not from here to get home safe and sound. Booking your event at One Bedford increases your party-planning creds among your invitees. Email them to get more information.
