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.

    Beautiful wedding venue!

    This wedding venue is absolutely stunning! It was perfect for our downtown/modern wedding and the venue is so pretty on its own that it required little decoration. It has such a unique feel between the back patio overlooking the baseball field, to the glass wall overlooking the brewery. The bridal suite made for gorgeous pictures and the oversized chalk wall is such a fun addition. Not to mention the staff are so helpful and pleasant to work with! They never made me feel like I was bothering them and went out of their way to accommodate us on our special day. Absolutely amazing venue, even the best picture doesn’t do it justice. Would highly recommend!

    Great venue spot

    he Rickhouse was such a fun venue to get married at. Sarah and Jessica Myers were so helpful and accommodating with any questions that my husband and I had. They were very responsive with our emails! Sarah was extremely helpful with helping us set up our ceremony and reception floor plans through all seated ( my husband is an engineer so he really enjoyed that program offered) ! The cocktail hour was so fun for the guests! There was a baseball game still playing so they were able to enjoy drinks and appetizers while watching the game!
    The weather was fluctuating a lot the weekend we got married. It did get very hot in the venue at one point, but once it was brought to the managers attention they took care of it promptly!

    All of my guests raved about how gorgeous the venue was. Its also a walkable location to downtown bars and hotels for guests staying in the area
