the organizers

Gowanus Hospitality Group is the home to a group of gathering spaces (The Green Building and 501 Union) located in the historic neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn, and luxury boutique hotel Hasbrouck House in upstate New York. We host weddings, live performances, intimate gatherings, blowout bashes, milestone celebrations, creative conferences, community events, and more.

We are prideful of the Brooklyn community in which we live and eagerly endeavor to provide a variety of soulful forums for working, dining, and celebrating life. We thrive on authentic, intimate, and memorable connections, whether for two people or two hundred.

The VenueS

501 Union

 

Tucked among five distinct Brooklyn neighborhoods – Gowanus, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boreum Hill, and Park Slope – 501 Union has become a hub for the community to gather, celebrate, educate, and learn. The building dates back to 1916 and once served as a classic car restoration shop. It was transformed into a private events venue in 2013 and now provides a unique backdrop for stylish weddings, corporate events, and photoshoots.
