plan your next event at one of brooklyn's most unique spaces


Benchmark Restaurant is centrally located in Brooklyn's bustling Park Slope neighborhood at 339A 2nd Street at 5th Avenue. 

Between the '20s & '40s, the space that now occupies Benchmark was used as an icehouse and major way station for goods that that arrived on the banks of the Gowanus Canal. 

Benchmark's rich history and naturally rustic interior is enhanced by warm exposed brick and arched windows. The space is perfect for intimate events of 15-45 people and in warmer weather the spacious Benchmark garden can be included for events of up to 110 people.
