In 2008 Irondale renovated an unused nineteenth-century Sunday school and created one of the most flexible, versatile, and dynamic theatre spaces in New York City, right in the center of Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The 6,000 square foot performance space has flexible seating for up to 250 people, ceilings that are 28’ high and a 1,900 square foot balcony/gallery with a café area with the original stained glass windows. Our restoration preserved the original character scale and details of this distinctive space.

Irondale has hosted, presented or produced hundreds of events since it opened. This is a one-of-a-kind theatrical venue; rich in history and atmosphere. The space itself offers inventive directors and designers a magnificent palette on which to set work.

Irondale, a simple room, a great possibility


- 6,000 sf. Performance space with a 28 ft. ceiling, and a 1,900 sf. balcony on three sides

- More than 150 lighting instruments and corresponding equipment on a grid system

Irondale is the perfect space for a ceremony or reception. There is room to seat 200 guests at tables and still have room for a dance floor. The wrap-around balcony is the perfect place to serve cocktails after the ceremony and before dinner.
