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.

128 South was wonderful! I cannot recommend them enough! The actual building is beautiful with a ton of character and charm that is very well maintained. Leading up to the wedding they allowed as many meeting as I needed to feel comfortable. I did not have a wedding planner but used 128's day of coordinator service. I could not have been more please. I dropped my decorations the day before and they took care of the rest. They coordinated with all other vendors and put up all my decorations as we had planned out in our earlier meetings. Their communication and professionalism was amazing. Every email was addressed immediately. Food was outstanding. Money well spent!
