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.
