About

On WeddingWire since 2015

Melrose Knitting Mall is a historic venue located in downtown Raleigh, NC. Originally built in 1903, this building sat mostly vacant for most of the 20th century when the textile mill closed in 1930.

The event space at Melrose Knitting Mall is an elegant banquet hall that is awash in natural light. This sunlight streams in through 24 large, arched windows set into the exposed brick walls and sparkles off of two rows of crystal chandeliers. Above the festivities, rough cut beams add to the rustic ambiance, while dancing and dining takes place on rich hardwood floors. A custom bar rounds out a sophisticated industrial-style lounge. Couples who choose to wed in this venue will be enchanted by the chic aesthetic that these stunning features create.

Melrose Knitting Mall is exclusively catered by Mulino Italian Kitchen, which offers a range of catering menus that include buffets, plated and stationed dinners. Rental of the venue comes with tables and chairs, plates, flatware, glassware and dedicated event staff. The property is conveniently situated in Downtown Raleigh and has onsite parking.

All I heard were good things!

The Melrose was an amazing choice for a wedding reception venue. First off, Southern Oak was fabulous since they are involved with the Melrose. Second, I heard the waitstaff was amazing all evening, and the food superb. I was incredibly amazed with how well the steaks were cooked despite them being the most requested meal. I also loved how the venue shown and glittered. I am truly in awe of how beautiful the space was.
