About Us

Located in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, Melrose Knitting Mill is a chic, urban wedding venue. The mill was first built in 1900, and today it serves a number of purposes. Its event spaces are found on the third floor, while the first and second floors house a bar and various offices. The event spaces came into being in 2014 when resident creative director Samad Hachby decided to renovate the third floor.

Facilities and Capacity

Melrose Knitting Mill welcomes ceremonies and receptions, alongside engagement parties, wedding showers, and rehearsal dinners. Couples who are hoping for an intimate elopement are also invited to celebrate here. The event space at this venue is a blank canvas for couples to transform and make their own. The open floor plan creates a sense of airiness, while exposed brick adds an industrial touch. The hall is illuminated by chandeliers for a dash of classic romance. Downstairs, to-be-weds and their guests can mingle at a cocktail reception on the patio. The mill has a maximum capacity of 180 guests and has on-site parking available for any that drive to the celebration.

Services Offered

Weddings at Melrose Knitting Mill are supported by the venue's experienced event planners. They offer a range of packages to suit each couple's unique needs, from day-of coordination to full-service planning. They are also happy to create a personalized plan. Catering for events held at the mill is taken care of by the on-site team at the ground floor's Mulino Italian Kitchen. To-be-weds can also choose from a range of signature cocktails to put their own stamp on a toast. China, silverware, and glassware are all supplied by the venue, as well as banquet servers to help the reception run smoothly.


The mill is easily accessible for guests from out of town. Raleigh-Durham International Airport is just over a 20-minute drive away for those flying in to be with you. There are also plenty of hotels nearby for any overnight stays. Guests can visit the nearby State Capitol, Joel Lane Museum House, and the Memorial Bell Tower to make the most of their time in the city.
