The University Club is the premiere dining club in Durham NC. But, it’s also one of the most gorgeous event spaces for rehearsal dinners and weddings. It is on the penthouse floor of University Tower, which, at 17 floors, is one of the tallest buildings in the city. With windows surrounding this Durham restaurant and wedding venue, guests enjoy a bird’s eye panoramic view of the green landscapes and downtown areas of Durham and Chapel Hill. Needless to say, weddings at University Club are elegant, with a big city vibe.
With the gorgeous aerial views of Durham, the University Club is a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony. It has multiple event rooms and a swanky, newly-renovated bar. That means it is conducive to smaller Durham wedding events such as bridal showers and rehearsal dinners. But it is also a great space for a large wedding. Up to 200 guests can take over the entire club and move throughout the space during the event.
And the best part about University Club is that while it’s elegant it is super affordable. They have very reasonable food and beverage minimums, even for a full restaurant takeover.
Since the University Club is a private dining club, you may not have ever had the chance to experience it unless you attending a wedding there. But as a frequent visitor of the place, and even hosts of events on site, Team SB&G can guarantee that it is one of the best restaurant dining experiences in Durham. From creative menus to exceptional service, this is a wedding venue fit for a Durham foodie!
Loosely associated with Duke University, the University Club is home to many Duke employees and even feeds a couple of the sports teams. But, they welcome non-member event rentals.
