Have your next event in a Coney Island Landmark

Located in the heart of world famous Coney Island at 1208 Surf Ave., our newly renovated landmarked building is a wonderful venue for your next party, wedding, or function. We can help you create a celebration your guests will never forget. We have several spaces to choose from including the Freak Bar, Sideshows by the Seashore, Arts Annex and the Coney Island Museum. For intimate birthday celebrations, large scale weddings and everything in between, contact us for information about our facilities rentals.

Come celebrate in the People's Playground.

Two of our spaces, the Freak Bar and The Museum accommodate around 80 to 100 people standing comfortably, and about 80 seated comfortably. The Sideshows By The Seashore space accommodates up to 125 seated and has a stage with a dressing room. Spaces can be combined to accommodate larger groups.

All spaces have sound systems with hookups for music players and microphones.

All rental spaces are subject to availability. In-season schedules (April 1 to November 1) are extremely limited, and weekends are typically unavailable due to our heavy program schedule. Programs can be cancelled for an increased fee.

We offer event space only. Catering services, table and chair rentals, event planning etc… is the responsibility of the client.

Bar packages: Bar service, if desired, is available for all rentals. We offer a 20% discount on beverages served from our bar during private events plus bartender wage.

Cash Bar, your guests will pay out-of- pocket, and then bartender is free. Discount applies.

Drink Tickets, you may distribute tickets to your guests. Ticket drinks go on your tab and guests may pay out of pocket for additional drinks.

Bar tab charges will be billed post-event. Our bar offers Beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages (juice, soda, water etc.) Hard liquor is not available under our license and may not be brought on the premises without a caterer with an off-premise event license.
