posted 8/3/2016 If you are looking for a Hudson Valley wedding venue with both indoor and outdoor space, the Senate Garage is an outstanding choice! My daughter wanted a unique venue, but also someplace comfortable, climate controlled, and modern in all the right ways. The Kingston NY Senate Garage is a perfect mix of old and new, indoors and outdoors. The space is completely one of a kind – a large, charming, historic garage tastefully transformed into a fabulous industrial style venue. High ceilings, brick walls, beautiful views from the many windows, and an overall cool vibe charmed my daughter and her fiancé. Plus it is heated and air conditioned, with a complete working kitchen and modern restrooms. All 130 guests at their July wedding – a mix of ages and cultures – adored the space as well as the adjacent outdoor area, with its lovely gardens and pretty lawns. We used long tables for family style dining and still had plenty of great space for mingling and dancing. And our Bride loved the romantic, gorgeous Bride’s Room, complete with chandelier, velvet sofa, and private rest room. As mother of the bride and family wedding planner, the Senate Garage staff gets 5 Stars from me, actually make that 10! They are caring, responsible professionals who helped us make plans and solve problems. April, the Events Manager, was our go-to person for all aspects of planning, and in time, felt like a friend of the family. Also, we discovered that the Senate Garage’s location in historic uptown Kingston is perfect for a destination wedding. Within a few of blocks of this venue are restaurants, bars, caterers, airbnbs, florists, photographers, hair and makeup salons, even great venues for an afterparty.
posted 6/14/2016 This venue was a perfect place to have our wedding. We had our ceremony next door at the Senate House gardens, and following that our guests were invited into the Senate Garage for the cocktail hour and reception. The brick walls, exposed ceiling and industrial lighting gave our event a unique feel unlike any other weddings we’ve attended. Our guests couldn’t stop saying how amazing they thought the space was. It’s very open which offers room for a lot of different floor plan layouts and design options (not to mention a great dance floor!). The owners and staff were easy and wonderful to work with as well. April (the venue’s manager) was a tremendous help in the planning process and we were so grateful to have her there the night of the wedding to make sure everything ran smoothly. 5 STARS for the Senate Garage!!
posted 5/9/2016 The Senate Garage is unlike any other venue I have seen in upstate NY or the Hudson Valley. They have a beautiful and large industrial space with wonderful Edison bulb chandeliers and beautifully refinished concrete floors but you can ALSO use the Senate House property! The Senate House property has beautiful colonial houses and gardens that have been beautifully restored! I would recommend this space to ANYONE looking for a non-traditional venue. Their staff is friendly, warm and accommodating too, who could ask for more?
posted 1/22/2016 Fantastic, our wedding was sensational !!! The moment we stepped through the door of the Senate Garage we fell in love with the dramatic space. It had everything we wanted, a visually stunning space in which we could bring our two lives together, a space to fill with all our family and friends, an architecturally interesting space with high ceilings, beautiful hanging chandeliers, large walls on which to hang work, an amazing floor for dancing, and large windows facing out onto a park setting. We could not have been more thrilled. The owners and their lovely staff are exceptional. Their enthusiasm and generosity as they endeavored to ensure that our wedding was perfect, went well beyond our expectations. Two days before the wedding, a kitchen with full amenities was installed. Their vision has created an environment so unique and extraordinary, it is truly deserving of my highest five times five star rating!!!!
Great event space, totally customizable, easy to work with, responsive staff. Definitely recommend.
I had a small event at the Senate Garage and it couldn't have been nicer! April and Kim were great to work with and were very patient with all my questions. I LOVED the openess of the space. Allowed me to create exactly what I wanted.Would recommend!
The staff were responsive, attentive, and easy to work with! They promptly answered all my questions, and worked with me to ensure all event elements were taken care of (licensing, insurance, safety, layout). Already planning my next event there!
