Q: Am I required to use vendors from your Preferred Vendor List?
Full-service catering provided by caterers on our Approved Catering List is required for events held at 5pm or later, as well as all weddings (regardless of time of day). Events held prior to 5pm may opt for full-service catering from our Approved Catering List, or provide plattered items not requiring temperature control. Please inquire for more details!
Q: Are there alcohol restrictions?
All alcoholic beverages must be served by a caterer/bartending company from our approved list. If your event involves liquor/cocktails, you will need to apply for a “Limited Special Occasion Permit” from the North Carolina ABC Commission.

Yes, we have an elevator that allows all guests to access the venue.

If you elect not to hire a planner/coordinator, we do require that you appoint a day-of contact on your end who will be the primary contact for our facility team
