The Ultimate Venue Guide

The Ace Hotel  

Stage Divers

The Knitting Factory
Die-hard music buffs may still be mourning the demise of the Knit’s Tribeca digs, but the legendary venue’s Brooklyn locale has garnered a respectable following. Tie the knot onstage, then do cocktails in the front bar before making your way back to the main space for dinner and a live band (the staff can help with recommendations— music is sort of their thing). There is no on-site kitchen, but past revelers have enlisted La Bella Mariella II, an Italian restaurant across the street whose rates start at $13 a head. The venue can accommodate 60 to 125 guests; prices start at $5,000 during the day and $7,000 at night and include a four-hour open bar for up to 80 guests. 361 Metropolitan Ave., at Havemeyer St., Williamsburg; 347-529-6696;

The Ace Hotel
The Ace offers somewhat traditional wedding amenities in a not-so-traditional space (think reclaimed furnishings, a wall of vintage speakers, and textured wallpaper suggesting pressed tin). Movable chalkboards help the hotel’s funky Liberty Hall transition seamlessly from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception. The venue can accommodate up to 100 people for dinner and dancing, and the food is sure to be memorable with the Breslin’s April Bloomfield at the helm. From $90 per person. 20 W. 29th St., nr. Broadway; 646-214-5764;
