Once home to the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, this iconic structure evokes the charm of a bygone era while embracing the energy of today.
Its ornate stone facade beckons visitors inside, where they are enveloped in an ambiance of opulence. Soaring ceilings with intricate moldings reach towards the sky as chandeliers cast an ethereal glow across mosaic floors. The grand teller windows and vaults, silent witnesses to old Brooklyn tales, add intrigue.
Yet Weylin does not remain trapped in time. Its transformation from financial institution to premier event space is spectacular. While its soul is rooted in history, Weylin adapts to cater to the contemporary. Corporate soirees, fairy-tale weddings, fashion shows - Weylin crafts memories through events that showcase its allure.
For some, it evokes an Elder Scrolls character woven into intrigue. Etymologically, it stems from Old English "waylon", conjuring images of forgotten paths and ancient tales. Musically, it echoes the legendary Waylon Jennings, whose enduring melodies continue to serenade.
In today's digital landscape, Weylin maintains a strong online presence through platforms like Instagram and Facebook. Its social channels offer glimpses of the space, share historical vignettes, and foster community around a shared love of architectural beauty.
To experience Weylin is to embark on a journey - through time, art, and story. It transcends an event venue; it is a narrative waiting to be explored and cherished.
Deemed one of the most monumental spaces surviving in New York, the Main Rotunda’s 110- foot domed ceiling, original fresco, solid gold leaf trim and carefully preserved monogrammed glass oval windows inspire awe. The gorgeous space is the perfect backdrop for galas, large-scale performances, activations, art installations, award ceremonies, charity auctions, and more.
Reminiscent of the Pantheon, the Oculus Dome’s classical coffered ceiling, limestone walls and mosaic marble floors radiate elegance. Perfect for large-scale events seeking a more neutral backdrop, the Oculus Dome can be used for ceremonies, seated dinners, receptions, and more.
Named after the year of the original construction of the Bank, The 1875 Bar’s wood floors, aged tin-ceiling, 1920s carved wood hotel bar and antique vault lends itself to the ultimate speakeasy “prohibition-era” feel. For added functionality, The 1875 Bar’s flexible floor plan boasts a state-of-the-art sound system, elevated floor area and sound booth so it’s perfect for accommodating cocktail parties, live performances, comedy shows and more.
Both of Weylin’s iconic domed rooms are joined by a wide center archway. The two spaces can easily be divided or used as one large event space.
