married couple getting into vintage yellow cab

The heart of it all.

We’re Judy and Don Tallerman, owners of Senate Garage. In 1992, we were newly engaged and looking for a place to get married, when we stumbled upon an abandoned building on the Lower East Side of NYC. We thought it was beautiful- roughly so. With a lot of work and love, we transformed that soaring space into the perfect setting for an unforgettable day with family and friends.

An elegant transformation.

After our wedding, we dreamt of renovating an industrial building of our own. In 2014, we found the Senate Garage in Kingston.

The building was being used for manufacturing. The rough interior still held hints of its past garage life; the ramp connecting the floors was still intact. It was perfect, with so much promise. Over the years, we’ve restored the building, melding its heritage with a modern sensibility, turning it into an elegantly industrial venue, sensuous and spare.

An inspired setting.

With deep ties to both the history and resurgence of the area, Senate Garage is an inspiring setting, both evocative and expansive. The charm and character of the space make a perfect backdrop for a wide variety of events, with its canvas of exposed brick, concrete and steel, high ceilings and graceful lighting.

Walls of windows and glass doors open onto historic grounds so that parties can spill out into the garden. Here, we host film and photo shoots, weddings, performances and political events, retreats and corporate conferences, and other bashes and blow-outs.

We are the the heart of Kingston and we welcome you to envision yourself here.

Anything can happen.
