Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Right in the heart of downtown Raleigh, this historic building sits nestled among the city’s skyscrapers, surrounded by its rich, vibrant neighborhood. An ideal blend of vintage and modern, it’s just steps from hotels, dining, and entertainment options.
  • There are chic interior spaces for events both large and small, and each spot boasts preserved architectural elements highlighted by industrial-chic touches. Outside, you’ll discover an urban oasis with mature shade trees and romantic bistro lighting.
  • Take the afterparty to the cool bar and lounge area, with its distinct speakeasy vibe. Here, soft lighting, rich wood accents, and a sophisticated charcoal palette encourage guests to grab a cocktail form the Art Deco-inspired bar and settle into a sofa in the cozy conversation nook.


A $500 food & beverage credit is available to active-duty military couples.
