  1. This is a great place organize an event; they have great staff and great events put on at party space rentals in Brooklyn! I had nothing but great times and great conversations there. They served slider and shrimp cakes as appetizers with chicken skewers, and eggrolls that had veggies on the inside and some kind of creamy fruit sauce on top.
