The Durham Hotel – Intimate Wedding Venue with the Best Rooftop in Durham

The Durham Hotel’s various event spaces can suit your wedding size and style. They offer the main restaurant for receptions, with its stunning two-story windows that look out to a cobblestone walking path below. The mezzanine private dining room is another option on the second floor.

Considering a daytime wedding? Book the rooftop for a fully private event during Saturday brunch hours. The Durham Hotel can help you create your personalized event from an intimate gathering, up to 125 guests. This is one of the few downtown locations with a rooftop and it is available for daytime wedding ceremonies and receptions, showers or other events. Imagine your own wedding here with a reception of raw oysters, small plates and hand-crafted cocktails. Plus, everyone will enjoy 360-degree views of downtown.

The roof is also available for group reservations during evening service hours – an ideal after-party place!
