About The Architect Bar & Social House

Located in the heart of downtown Raleigh, The Architect was originally built in 1922, and when we found it we saw immediate character. As we pulled away old sheetrock and insulation, we found beautiful brick walls and windows that had been covered for decades. It was our vision to create a space that had a synergy with the historic business neighborhood while adding some comfortable, yet stylish, elements. The design of drink menus, décor and appeal has all centered around our name. The Architect offers a gorgeous backdrop for your engagement party, wedding reception, birthday celebration, corporate event, holiday party, etc. With high ceilings, exposed brick and plenty of natural light, you and your guests will be dazzled by this unique and unexpected venue.

"We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at the Architect and The Green Light on October 14, 2017. The space is an incredibly unique and affordable gem in downtown Raleigh. Our 130 guest raved about how accommodating the staff were, how unique and creative the space was and how the drinks were delicious. The staff and Architect Coordinator, Lauren, were a dream to work with over our 18 month engagement. She made the entire process easy, pleasant and continuously went above and beyond to ensure that our vision came to life and the space was perfect. She happily met with us whenever we asked and answered countless emails. I can’t speak enough about how special the staff makes you feel. This is the perfect space for those that are looking for a memorable and different wedding experience for guests. Highly recommend- it was truly the perfect experience for us and our guests"

We had the best experience hosting an engagement party at The Architect! Lauren Husketh made planning the event so easy! She was so great! We had about 70 people attend and there was so much room for everyone. We were able to decorate the whole place (even though the decor of the venue didn't need much to look amazing) , the food was delicious, and they were great about working with our budget to figure out how to throw the best event. I highly recommend The Architect for any wedding event. Nothing could have gone better for us!
