Built in 1905, the Boathouse in Prospect Park was one of the first buildings in New York City to be declared an historic landmark. Home to Brooklyn’s most elegant affairs, the Boathouse offers a breathtaking natural setting and a stately backdrop for your special occasion. This Beaux Arts style building overlooks the scenic Lullwater and Lullwater Bridge, and features exclusive catering from Purslane, the team behind well-loved Brooklyn restaurants Rucola, June and Metta. The Boathouse is available spring through fall for daytime and evening rentals, and can accommodate up to 150 guests for a seated dinner and dancing and 225 for a standing event (indoors).
