Guest List & Reservation

The Brooklyn Mirage

The Brooklyn Mirage, an iconic outdoor courtyard and a green paradise in the heart of industrial Brooklyn, appears in May and disappears at September’s end. Here guests can escape the tedious city bustle to find respite amongst palm trees and thousands of tropical plants. Attendees have whisked away to another world, yet reminded of their surroundings when they explore the two-story catwalk or ascend the four-story observation tower to witness spectacular views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The courtyard boasts enough space to accommodate a fully seated dinner, as well as an unparalleled dance floor surrounded by 360-degree video projections, a full concert stage, and a top-notch PA system.

The Great Hall

The Great Hall is the quintessential Brooklyn industrial warehouse, that’s anything but. A massive and soaring space, its aesthetic is a mix between industrial chic and organic tech. The Avant Gardner largest indoor space, The Great Hall can be transformed into an endless variety of styles and arrangements, all complemented by the high ceilings, exposed beams, and warehouse-party aesthetic of the space.

The King Hall

The Kings Hall is its intimate domain within the grand complex. During the day, natural light shines through the glass ceiling panels, filling the space with a brilliant visual effect perfect for ceremonies and cocktail hours. As day turns to night, our world-class sound system and intricately designed lighting fixtures complete a dance floor that rivals that of the most acclaimed nightclubs.

About Avant Gardner

All of the spaces can be combined to give guests several unique environments in which to celebrate weddings, and each space can be used in a variety of different ways. Send us a message and we will put together a package that is perfect for you and your guests. Avant Gardner’s indoor arena boasts three different-sized rooms, each with unique accouterments that range from oversized chandeliers to stained glass and motorized rigs.

“This is a key element to the concept because it allows us to create a path for artists to grow in the market as their careers thrive and their fanbases expand,” says head of programming, Kenny Schachter. “Artists that play the King’s Hall often come back the following year and play the Great Hall, and continue growing toward our largest stage, The Brooklyn Mirage.”

The latter boasts immersive 360-degree visuals, which are cast against winding staircases and balconies. Thus the exteriors of Avant Gardner bear the visage of a palace — a stark contrast to the structure’s blue-collar beginnings.
