About The Rickhouse

We're steeped in tales from our historic beginnings as a tobacco prizery to our modern day iteration as sibling to an artisanal micro-distillery. Today, we're beholden to all the goings ons that happen between these restored and reclaimed walls.

The Rickhouse is a private event space, used for both business and social events.

The Rickhouse is rich in history and keeps with the architectural integrity of it's origin as an R.J. Reynolds tobacco prizery while outfitted with the latest in lighting, sound and presentation capabilities. The space is connected to Two Doors Distilling, whose copper stills are visible through a glass wall that separates the spaces. Large industrial windows and doors open out to a 2000 sq. foot patio overlooking the Durham Bulls Athletic Park where the movie Bull Durham was filmed. Re-purposed barn wood, custom lighting fixtures, a copper star wall and a private suite all add to the industrial charm of the space.

    The Perfect Venue

    My husband and I visited four venues and easily decided that The Rickhouse was the one for us. It was so easy to customize everything so that we got exactly what we wanted. We're fairly minimalist when it comes to decor, so it was perfect to find a venue that didn't need much additional decor. We worked with Jessica up until she went on leave and Sarah took over for our wedding. The transition was seamless, and we were so happy with everything they did for us. We also loved that we got to share the AllSeated platform for our seating chart so that we were easily able to set things up how we wanted them and that they could easily view our floorplan and make any necessary adjustments. This was the perfect venue for our wedding, and we would recommend it to any engaged couple!

    Beautiful Durham Location

    The Rickhouse was the only place we looked at for our ceremony and reception. Once we saw how beautiful the space was we were sold. The staff was friendly and super easy to work with, and our guest really loved the location and the experience.
