Mediterranean Restaurant with Event Space & Bar Overlooking Glenwood South


Vidrio is an upscale Mediterranean restaurant popular with Raleigh diners. However, Vidrio is not just regular ol’ eatery. First of all, its aesthetic is a sight to behold. It is a large, two-story building with breathtaking decor including a wall covered in a rainbow of blown glass disks. Better yet, Vidrio has multiple spaces that are perfect for a wedding large or small. 

Located on the iconic strip of Glenwood South, this venue is an ideal location for rehearsal dinners, too. Guests will enjoy the local accommodations and entertainment that surrounds this facility.

Vidrio – Unique Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Wedding Venue 

Vidrio has brought the feel of a big metropolis to the small city of Raleigh. Vidrio’s modern and eclectic decor feels as though you are walking into a New York City restaurant. Hanging from every inch of the venue is unique modern art, lighting features, eclectic furniture and glass pieces (Vidrio means glass is Spanish).

Upstairs, you’ll find the perfect space for an elopement or intimate wedding ceremony with stunning, colorful and one-of-a-kind backdrops, including the blown glass bowls that drape the entirety of a wall of the venue, hanging artwork and so much more. The upstairs space also includes a second large bar with the same beverage selections offered at the main first-floor bar. Plus, retractable large windows allow space to completely open up to views of Glenwood Ave, and fresh air.

Not only is the space at Vidrio completely breathtaking, the food is on par with its appearance. The Glenwood South restaurant has delicious Mediterranean small plates and larger courses that will go far beyond just merely satisfying wedding guests. Choose from plates such as traditional beef skewers or intricately prepared yellowfin tuna and so much more.

Restaurant Event Space for Small to Large Wedding, Rehearsal Dinners, Showers or Luncheons

Downstairs at Vidrio is a comfortable bar area with over 50 wines on tap, a large dining area with a raised smaller dining area surrounded by projection screens. This can be used as a gathering space. Or, book a semi-private rehearsal dinner or luncheon.

There is also a smaller private room that can accommodate an intimate gathering.

Whether a couple is planning a small intimate wedding, a larger scale rehearsal dinner for up to 250, or anything in between, Vidrio is the perfect out of the box venue to host.
