About The Public

The Public is an event venue located in Greensboro, North Carolina. This warm, inviting, and rustic private event space is perfectly suited for weddings, business functions, and other celebratory events. The historic warehouse was originally built during the 1920s for Piedmont Ice & Coal Company. Since then it has housed Greensboro Ironworks, a gas station, and other businesses until becoming what is now The Public. The space is open and bright with modern touches but still maintains original wooden beams and other historical features.

    Incredible wedding that didn’t bust our budget.

    The Public was one of the best choices we could have made. The staff was professional, adaptable, and hospitable. With all the changes to table arrangements and head counts they were there to help. The food was a hit with our guests and the open bar overcame the initial onslaught and ran efficiently the whole night. They took care of us and our guests and seemed both grateful that we had chosen them and eager to prove they were worthy of our choice.

    I highly recommend this venue to anyone with a wedding on the horizon.
