About Us

128 South is located in historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina on the banks of the Cape Fear River. We offer a unique venue and reception space for your event including: wedding reception, luncheons, bridal or baby showers, business meetings, product presentations, product launch events, corporate dinners, professional association meetings, retirement parties, holiday parties, birthday parties, anniversary parties, art or fashion shows, etc.

Our open floor plan includes a 2nd floor mezzanine overlooking the central lower level. This layout offers a particularly charming gathering space where each of your guests can truly engage in the event activities. We are large enough to comfortably accommodate a cocktail reception for 250 people, but cozy enough for an exclusive private dinner.

October 2011 marked the completion of the 128 South River View Deck. The River View Deck offers a unique outdoor event space with fantastic views of the Lower Cape Fear River. The vista spans from the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to the Isabelle Holmes Bridge and includes the USS North Carolina.

Adjacent to 128 South, and also located in the VonKampen building, you will find Stemmerman's Inn. Stemmerman's accommodations are charming, spacious, and cozy. Each suite features high ceilings, large living spaces, a kitchenette and an upstairs sleeping loft.

Most of the Pricing and Menu information can be found on the 128 South website (http://128southevents.com/128South-pricing-policy.html).  Of course, if you have any questions about these items, we are available by phone or email at info@128southevents.com or 910.399.1709.

If you would like to schedule an appointment to see the venue in person, please let us know.  We accept appointments Monday - Saturday based on availability.  Again, thank you for your interest in 128 South.  We look forward to hearing from you!

I just had my wedding here last week and it was the most wonderful experience ever! Everyone goes above and beyond to help you with anything you need. They are on top of their game every step of the way. The service, food.....everything is spectacular!!! I couldn't have gotten any luckier finding this place in Wilmington. It's such a beautiful, intimate setting inside and outside on the deck is gorgeous and spacious. Chere' was my wedding coordinator, not only is she a doll but she is fabulous at what she does. She took care of everything and always responded back to my calls/emails promptly. My wedding was a dream come true and they made everything so easy. There's no place better to have your event!
