Food & Beverage
Our clients can choose from a selection of caterers to accommodate any event. (Of course, 128 South is our favorite.) Because we hold a NC ABC license, we must handle the sale and service of all alcohol on the premises. When it comes to making your cocktail selections, we offer inclusive hosted bar packages, consumption bars, and cash bar options with house and premium brands as well as mocktails, craft beers and signature drinks.
The modern Bakery 105 interior boasts exposed brick walls, wood ceilings, steel girders, and a large monitor skylight. Our venue provides a raw, unfinished space with modern amenities. The upper level of our garden courtyard is flanked by planter boxes and bench seating on either side of the central steps down into the main courtyard. The design is complete with brick pavers, creeping fig ivy, flowering foliage and crepe myrtle trees ideally suited for a ceremony, cocktail hour or al fresco dining.

The bakery is a fantastic venue with a wonderful staff to be around! what more is there to say about this rustic venue in the heart of downtown Wilmington! As a lighting designer, I couldn't hope for a better venue to work in. The brick walls to the exposed beams and plenty of power all around the room makes me a happy guy!
Absolutely GORGEOUS and unique venue in the heart of downtown Wilmington. Fits a LARGE wedding guest list and has both indoor and outdoor options. The original acid washed brick in the bakery is a photographer's dream :)
Bakery 105 is hands down one of our favorite venues to work with! We've had the opportunity to do floral design at Bakery 105 for many weddings and its always so great to see how versatile the venue is. The staff is so wonderful to work with and the food is AMAZING! This is great venue for a ceremony, reception or any other event!
