Boasting exposed brick walls, distinctive metalwork salvaged from Durham landmarks, a Front Room with ceilings stretching 20 feet high, an outdoor cobblestoned garden and a courtyard, The Cookery’s grounds in downtown Durham are the perfect setting for a myriad of private celebrations, corporate functions, and public events. Our unique space is quintessential venue for:
- weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, and post wedding brunches
- private celebrations such as birthday parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and retirement parties
- corporate parties
- daytime seminars and luncheons
- university functions
- food shows, fundraisers, trade shows, and other community events
The Cookery grounds now expand over 12,000 sq. ft., and can accommodate seated dinners and wedding ceremonies for up to 330 guests*.
