The Stockroom at 230 comfortably seats 50-175 guests for a seated reception with a dance floor. We can accommodate larger guest counts if you are interested in a standing/cocktail-style event. Please ask for details!
*These numbers reflect full capacity. Capacity may be reduced due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please inquire for details.
Q; May I use a vendor not on your Preferred Vendor List?
We require that you choose a caterer on our Exclusive Catering List for all your food and beverage. Outside of that, you are welcome to hire any professional vendor for services provided they have a current Certificate of Insurance (COI) and are approved by The Stockroom at 230.
Q; What is the difference between the rental time and the event time?
Your rental time is the time in which you have access to the venue on the day of your event. The event time is the time during which your event occurs. We require at least two hours between the start of your rental time and the start of your event be reserved for setup and at least one hour between the end of your event time and the end of your access time be reserved for cleanup. If you would like to add additional hours to your rental, you may do so at $200 an hour.
Q; Is the venue accessible for guests with different levels of mobility?
Yes, we have elevator and ramp access into the space.
Q; Are there alcohol restrictions?
You may go through your caterer for alcoholic beverages and service, or you may choose to provide your own alcoholic beverages and have your caterer supply a bartender to serve it. If your event involves liquor/cocktails, you will need to apply for a “Limited Special Occasion Permit” from the North Carolina ABC Commission. All alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, cocktails) must be served by a licensed and insured bartender as provided by the caterers on our Preferred Vendor List.
Q: Can you provide A/V equipment?
Yes, we have a projector and screen available for an additional $200 fee. Please note, we do not provide AV support throughout the event. For additional AV equipment and support, please ask for details.
Q: What are the guidelines regarding decor?
Candles with live flames are permissible if they are within a container, and the flame does not extend over the top of the container. Only no-mark hooks/strips should be used on the walls, no nails or tape please. Glitter, confetti, birdseed, and loose feathers are not allowed.
Q: Where should guests park?
We recommend guests park in one of the nearby parking decks, all within two blocks of the venue: Moore Square, Wilmington Station, or Alexander Square. Although limited, street parking is also available.
Q: Where should out of town guests stay?
A perk of being in the heart of Downtown Raleigh is that we are within a few blocks of several hotels! Please see our Preferred Vendor List for those we recommend.
