History
Those who grew up in the Raleigh area during the 1950s and 1960s will probably recall the aroma of freshly baked bread filling the air as you traveled down Hillsborough Street. As a student, you may have enjoyed a field trip to the Royal Bakery building for a tour of the bread bakery. In 1997, the Royal Bakery joined the National Register of Historic Places as part of Raleigh’s unique and valuable history. Since the redevelopment of the bakery in 2000, a variety of tenants now occupy over 28,000 square feet of space. These include Ben & Jerry’s, f8 Photo Studio, Brickhouse Sports Bar, Jasmine’s, Halo Salon, Lucky Tree, and most importantly, The Royal Banquet & Conference Center.

    We had a staff retreat at the Royal Banquet Conference Center. It was the perfect location for us and they made everything super easy.

    The location was perfect for our event. There is plenty of parking and the staff are super helpful. We were totally satisfied.
