Retro-chic Post-punk Bowery Wedding

We recently had lunch at the Bowery Hotel's Gemma bistro and checked out the party space. This space isn't for the faint-hearted -- think rockstar/A-list socialite/too-cool-for school vibe. But the space is beautiful and is picture-perfect for the downtown bride. There are three rooms and a balcony that separately or combined can accommodate from 60 to 300.
The second floor fireplace room with Edwardian-style planters and furniture.
Front half of the room.
Large bar/cocktail area.
And for all you brides looking for outdoor space...
The terrace.
The rooms aren't bad, either. This irrepressible hipster hangout has light, bright bedrooms that capture the style of old New York apartments. Gemma's private dining room also would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner for 20-30. It' not your parent's Bowery any longer.

It is hard to believe that this is New York City, even harder to believe that it is the Bowery. Looks like a visit downtown is in order.
