The Stockroom at 230 comfortably seats 50-175 guests for seated reception with a dance floor. We can accommodate larger guests counts if you are interested in a standing/cocktail-style reception. Please ask for details!
We require that you choose a caterer on our Exclusive Catering List for all your food and beverage, and a Wedding Coordinators from our planners section on our Preferred Vendor List. Outside of these categories 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.
Yes! Many of our couples opt to hold the ceremony and reception in the same space. In this case we would do a room flip, where the ceremony is changed over into the reception setup during the cocktail hour. Your caterer is responsible for placing the tables and chairs and setting up the food service and your Wedding Coordinator is responsible for the decor during the flip. This flip can be completed during the cocktail hour time.
The landing area of the venue can accommodate up to 120 guests during cocktail hour. However, if you have over 120 guests and/or you would prefer for guests to not be in the venue during the flip, we advise sending guests for a cocktail hour at a nearby location on Fayetteville Street. We are happy to provide recommendations.
Yes, we have elevator and ramp access into the space.
Yes, we have two dressing suites: The Glass Box and The Lounge. The Glass Box is located on the fifth floor with stunning views of the city; The Lounge offers a relaxed atmosphere and is adjacent to The Stockroom. Access to The Glass Box and The Lounge is included in your rental of The Stockroom at 230 unless otherwise noted.
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.
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.
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.
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.
