About 1705 East

Southern Charm. Modern Sophistication.

1705 East, a private wedding and event venue for Rocky Top Catering, is as inviting on the outside as it is on the inside. In a restored Southern home just outside downtown Raleigh, the outdoor facade lends itself beautifully to photography and ceremonies, with a manicured landscape and welcoming entrance flanked by white columns. The stunning inside décor provides a contemporary, upscale setting. A variety of both smaller and large rooms offers intimate settings and grand capacities for weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners and bridal events.

1705 East offers in-house tables, chairs and chinaware, an on-site kitchen, full bar and cocktail reception area, audio visual packages and event and vendor coordination upon request.

 

Rocky Top Catering operates 1705 East in Raleigh, NC and is the preferred caterer to the most exclusive venues in the Triangle and the exclusive caterer for the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh and The Blue Zone at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill. With over 10 years experience catering to the Raleigh and Triangle area, Rocky Top believes that delicious, creative cuisine and exceptional service are the two main ingredients in helping you make your next event memorable. We were honored to be named the 2011 & 2012 Caterer of the Year by the National Association of Catering Executives.

Kevin and his team are efficient, knowledgeable and very personable. Having an event catered by this team is delish and effortless. I encourage you to speak with Kevin or any of his staff regarding your event or wedding needs.

All Events DJs has provided services for a number of clients at 1705 Prime and we've worked with Rocky Top at countless locations around the Triangle. We have always enjoyed their staff and their food (yum!). The front of 1705 Prime is a great backdrop for Ceremonies. The Cocktail Hour bar space is ideal for entertaining your crowd during photos. The Reception space is wonderful! With their new renovations, the space is perfect for bringing in your own colors and designs to customize this venue to your specific style. There is a great nook for the Photo Booth, a beautiful cake location in front of their glass wine cellar, and a great dance floor space. The venue creates a great experience for guests, especially with the different rooms for entertaining throughout the night. We always look forward to our next event at 1705 Prime!

1705 Prime is such a unique venue! All the comforts of the south, with contemporary elements inside. They really make it easy with a low space rental, and including all of the catering in house. From beginning to end, we enjoy our partnership as their exclusive caterer.

I truly love 1705 Prime. Not only is Rocky Top Catering one of the best caterers in the area, but their venue 1705 is amazing. I have been working them for over 10 years and truly love being a part of their vendor family. I highly highly highly recommend 1705 Prime!!
