Restaurants that can host 120 guest weddings, with dancing

Looking for a Manhattan or Brooklyn restaurant to buy out for our wedding reception. I'm a lazy bride here and I can't deal with the table rentals, caterers, cater-waiters, decorations, and all related hassle of raw event spaces, so I'm looking for a restaurant so everything's built-in. I'd love a hint of outdoor space as well. Close to booking Public (they throw kickass weddings, I've been to several and they rocked) but looking for last minute suggestions. Many places don't allow dancing (Frankies Spuntino) or have noise restrictions and out-by times due to neighbors. Aurora Williamsburg for example was lovely and beautiful but they literally push the tables and chairs against the wall for dancing - that would just feel like dancing in a closed restaurant. Anyone know of a restaurant that does rockin' weddings?

      This didnt meet picklesister's requirement of being a restaurant but were doing something similar at the bell house - they dont have a kitchen but dont care who you bring in for catering, it includes bar and service staff and was very competitive price-wise accounting for the size of the space and included open bar.

      Check out Liberty Warehouse, a new venue in Red Hook.
