The staff at 1705 East was spectacular. They were friendly, helpful, and made sure we were happy the whole time.
The food was out of this world delicious. We had the bubbly bar (a must have!) it was so delightful.
The venue itself is a stunning! The bridal suite was a dream. I felt like a princess bride. There are so many picture opportunities. There was plenty of room so no one felt cramped, but everyone was still able to enjoy each other.
Vicki was my coordinator and she was fabulous. She was always there when I needed her and she made sure that everything was perfect.
We are so pleased with 1705. Next big party we throw will be right there!

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!!
