Host your social event at the Jiddi Space

The Jiddi (“Grandfather” in Lebanese) Space is a fully enclosed private dining and event space. With its rustic charm, sense of history, and market lighting, it is ideal for family celebrations including wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, and Holiday or surprise parties. The Jiddi Space can accommodate a slide show or presentation with its drop-down screen, ceiling-mounted projector, wi-fi receiver, and speaker system. Reserve The Jiddi Space alone or with the Courtyard.

Equal parts modern and provincial, the Courtyard is a hidden gem in downtown Raleigh. Tucked behind the restaurant, our Courtyard & Jiddi Space offer a secluded outdoor/indoor venue for your special events. The Courtyard is equipped to entertain your guests with market lighting, a bar, lounge seating, and can host live music or a DJ. It is booked in tandem with our Jiddi Space as the rain contingent.
