The Grand Prospect Hotel, Brooklyn

Palatial opulence meets rich Brooklyn history at the iconic Grand Prospect Hotel, designed by the architect who created the unique buildings at Prospect Park. The building is designed in the Rococo style and has a storied history as an opera house, music hall, speakeasy, and movie set. This jewel box of a hotel is located at 263 Prospect Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215 (phone: 718-788-0777). The soaring ceilings of the lobby evoke the feeling of Versailles Palace in France, with marble floors below and sparkling chandeliers above.

The Grand Prospect Hotel can accommodate up to 300 guests in the Grand Hall, a parquet-floored space ideal for dancing the night away. All catering and bar services are provided by the hotel, and the venue has a list of quality, responsible vendors for clergy; photographers and videographers; florists; music, and even ballroom dancing lessons! The space itself is perfect for the opulent wedding of a glamorous bride, with a dedicated event planner.
