Add a dash of industrial grade intimacy and a smidge of soiree sweetness and you've got this very special space in beautiful Brooklyn.
Located centrally at the hub of five neighborhoods, let this historic building play host to your next bash. Once the setting for the re-vitalization of vehicles, it's now vibrant with vintage heritage. While the space is chicly cavernous, it echoes with elegance and coziness is easily created.
The major accents of 501 Union are sourced locally from Brooklyn makers, like the Modo chandeliers by Jason Miller and the customized Flavor Paper wallpaper.
