Events FAQ

Can I reserve some tables for a small party?

Due to the nature of our business flow, we generally do not take formal reservations without a card minimum paid in full prior to the visit. These rates fluctuate depending on the size of your group and day of the week. If you have a smallish group (5-15 people), you shouldn’t have much trouble finding a spot on the patio.

Can I buy out the space for a private party? What does that include, and what is the price?

Yes, you can! Generally, the package includes use of the space, plus an open bar featuring 3-4 of our signature cocktails, 1 beer, and 1 wine. Prices fluctuate based on the scope of the event, time, and day of the week. Please reach out with details to receive a quote.

Can I host my wedding at Kings County Distillery?

Depending on the scope of the wedding, yes. We can provide the space and an open bar, but most other aspects, such as extra seating, tenting, food service, extra staff etc, would need to be provided. We are the perfect spot for an after party or welcome party 😉 Please reach out with details for options/pricing.

How many spaces do you have?

The Gatehouses are comprised of two similar buildings; the “South” Gatehouse, which is our main bar/tasting room, and the “North” Gatehouse, which is a more dedicated event/education space.

Do you have food? Can I bring my own?

We do offer a small selection of basic bar snacks (chips, nuts, cheese plates), but do not have a full kitchen. We generally don’t have much fridge space or staging areas, but you are more than welcome to order out or bring your own food, cake etc.

What is your max capacity?

Each gatehouse can hold about 50 max, with an additional 80 on the patio.

Can our private event run past closing time?
Yes, but it is $65 per hour to keep the Navy Yard gates open.

Are restrooms easily accessible?

Each gatehouse has 1 restroom, in one case it is at the bottom of a spiral staircase, so it is not as easy to access for those who may need help. We are happy to help arrange a portapotty rental if necessary.

Are kids allowed?


Are dogs allowed?

Yes, on the patio only.

Can we bring our own alcohol, like champagne?

We cannot allow outside alcohol.

Can we play our own music or hire a dj?

If you are buying out the space for a private event, you can certainly plug your device into our basic soundsystem. DJ’s and live bands are welcome as well, but they would need to bring all of their own equipment. Due to the age of the space, we highly recommend DJ’s/bands come by prior to the event to make sure everything works.

Do you have TVs or a projector we could use?

We do not have either. We do have a projector screen that you are more than welcome to use.

Do you have parking?

We do not. Navy Yard parking is not available, so you will need to find a space on the streets nearby.
