The Westin Jersey City Newport
While The Westin Jersey City Newport brings something a little extra to the table. The hotel offers a special package for South Asian weddings. Since the Newport Grand Ballroom can host up to 650 people, it’s the perfect place for a big, traditional affair.
The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre
Concert Hall, Theatre
The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre has been proudly standing across the street from the Journal Square transportation hub since the 1920s. Although it’s used more as a space for live concerts, theatre, film and other performing arts, it is also a popular wedding venue because of its lush and classic decor, which makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
RoofTop at Exchange Place
Cocktail Bar, Restaurant, American, $$$
RoofTop at Exchange Place is a great location for a wedding with a modern and metropolitan feel. Located at the top of the Hyatt House Jersey City, there are riverfront views and the New York City skyline. The Terrace South and Terrace East are meant for more intimate affairs, being able to hold less than 100 people. If you have a bigger party (up to 200), the RoofTop Atrium is a better choice. The RoofTop Atrium also has a retractable glass canopy, to turn your indoor reception into an open-air soiree.
Liberty Science Center
