    The Jiddi Courtyard

    This space was perfect for our Rehearsal Dinner! It is a beautiful location and the food was amazing. Devan was a great communicator and was very helpful in making sure this event was a success. Would definitely recommend this space for an event!

    Best of Both Worlds

    I wanted a night time outdoor wedding and I was able to have it here with no worries. We had both an indoor and outdoor space. The space was beautiful and the staff was great. The food was awesome. Thanks for everything.

    We have been a part of many event at the Jiddi Space & Courtyard and it is one of Raleigh's hidden event space gems. There are very few courtyards in the area and no others in downtown Raleigh. Of course the food is unbelievable good since this is a part of Sitti! The people that run the events are as good as they come and are very accommodating. Awesome space!

    We love working with our friends over at the Jiddi Space!  Not only is it a beautiful space inside (the Jiddi space has an old world charm) and out (gorgeous courtyard), but the food is delicious.  On top of that, the Event Managers - Amy and Devan - always ensure a quality experience from beginning to end.  Our customers are always happy.  You can’t beat that!
