You’ve probably eaten at Sitti and Gravy in downtown Raleigh – but did you know that they have an amazing industrial meets warehouse style venue with a large open air courtyard nestled behind them? Jiddi Space & Courtyard might just be Raleigh’s best kept wedding venue secret.
Equal parts modern industrial and peaceful urban oasis, the Jiddi Space & Courtyard is truly a hidden gem in downtown Raleigh. Tucked behind our Sitti and Gravy restaurants, this secluded indoor and outdoor venue is perfect for events of all varieties, including wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties and corporate events.
The Courtyard comes equipped with market lighting, a full bar and lounge seating. There is adequate space for live music or a DJ, so if weather works out, the entire event can be open-air. Adjoining the Courtyard is a fully enclosed private dining room that is called the Jiddi Space. “Jiddi” means Grandfather in Lebanese. Book both together, and you have a rain contingency plan!
Host a wedding for anywhere between 20 and 140 guests.
Exclusively catered by Sitti or Gravy, Jiddi’s chef-driven menus deliciously accommodate light bites as well as full service meals. At the Jiddi Space & Courtyard, guests can expect warm hospitality and award-winning cuisine on your big day.
These restaurants are both well versed in offsite catering, under Empire Eats Catering.
Unbeknownst to many, Jiddi has a secret luxury wedding suite tucked away out of sight from the venue below. You’ll find their wedding suite directly above Gravy and Sitti restaurants with a terrace that overlooks the courtyard. This hidden wedding suite is perfect for spying on your guests as they arrive for the ceremony! Jiddi’s wedding suite includes a bridal room for dressing or doing hair and makeup, a private restroom, lounge seating area, table seating and space to relax before wedding festivities. If you choose to rent this bonus wedding suite space, Jiddi also offers a light breakfast/lunch and beverage service if desired!
