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.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at 128 South in April. It was flawlessly executed. Janna and Chere are true professionals with valuable experience in event planning. Thanks to their guidance, the amount of time, effort, and stress that my husband and I invested into planning the reception was very minimal. They were very responsive to all correspondence throughout the planning process and were easy to work with. We also had 128 South cater our reception which did not disappoint. We had countless guests compliment our entree and appetizer selections. It was presented well, seasoned perfectly, served hot!, and no one went home hungry. Five months after our wedding we are continuing to get compliments on how wonderful the food was. We also used Brian Hood as our DJ. He is part owner of 128 South, and therefore very familiar with the operations of the company and event planning in general. He did a great job announcing our wedding party and kept the reception on schedule by directing guests to dinner, toasts, etc. He was very professional, organized, and was great at reading the crowd when making song selections. We had a great dance party and have had other friends use Brian since our wedding! Highly recommended!
