Barrow Mansion was the perfect spot for our intimate ceremony! My husband and I wanted something unique that was able to cater to a small ceremony (35 people). We ended up using one of the parlors for the ceremony and renting out the bowling alley for a champagne toast immediately following - everyone loved it! The space was beautiful, the wedding was so special and Jim (the property manager) was lovely to deal with. He was responsive and made things easy throughout the entire process. I was able to bring in whatever vendors I wanted (florist/furniture rentals/photographer) and tailor the space to our vision. They have different rooms to choose from and can customize a plan for you based on the size of your event - it was such a personal experience and I’m happy to recommend the venue to anyone looking for an upcoming wedding/event.
Beautiful, unique venue in the heart of Jersey City! It is in walking distance from everything. It is such a great space and the staff is amazing! They cater to your every need, they are in constant contact with you and they truly care about you and your event. I have hosted several events at the Barrow Mansion, and I never regret it. I love this space and so will you!
I hosted my wedding ceremony here in the front parlor room, and it was a lovely place for our intimate gathering of family and friends! Jim worked with me throughout the week leading up to plan for decorations, including a meeting for my florist to see the space, and design a custom arrangement. He provided a table and chairs as well as beautiful rug. The space was just perfect for us to have our families witness our intimate ceremony, and partake in a champagne toast and photo session afterwards. We also had access to the old bowling alley in the basement for some fun and unique shots of our group! We are really pleased with the day and the whole experience of working with Barrow Mansion!
