Located in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, this building, constructed in 1916, was used as a warehouse where classic cars were restored. 501 Union was brought back to life in 2013 by Akiva Reich and Company. The building is now a stylish events venue, but much of its original personality remains in the brick walls and rooftop windows that allow natural light to enter the events spaces.

It boasts vaulted ceilings and a skylight that is 50 feet wide. Exposed brick and hardwood give the Gallery its classic personality, while designer chandeliers and another marble-topped bar imbue the area with a special sense of luxury. 501 also has a private suite that can be used as a green room or a bridal suite. A venue coordinator and event-day staff are on hand to assure that everything goes smoothly on the special day. 501 Union can host a stand-up event for up to 299 people. 200 people can be accommodated for a casual seated event.
