Hi, we are looking for a banquet room in Durham for a party for about 80-100 people seated for a luncheon, and we'd need room for a dance floor. The event isn't until next year, so we have time to plan. We're not looking for something too fancy but not too casual either (no bbq places). One place I thought of was Maggiano's, but would love some local (non-chain) ideas. I am not too familiar with Durham restaurants so thought I'd open it up to the experts. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

There's that Bay 7 (I think?) at American Tobacco Campus if you wanted to have it catered. There's a recent thread here about a wedding reception to be held there.

Thanks, Poppydog, I saw that post. I am kind of looking for something that is not do it yourself - I don't feel like looking for a rental room with separate caterers. So I'm thinking of a restaurant with banquet facilities.

Washington-Duke Inn? Could certainly handle a group of that size with on-site catering.

Thanks for the suggestion. That looks really nice, but probably a bit more formal and more expensive than what I want. Any other similar less upscale venues like that?

Michgc, I looked up Bay 7 after I posted that and found out that the Angus Barn is the exclusive caterer for Bay 7 so you wouldn't have to (or be able to) arrange for catering yourself.

The Cotton Room would be a similar option to Bay 7, and they also have their own catering apparently. Of the restaurants I eat at downtown, I can't really think of any that have actual banquet space, but that doesn't mean they don't rent out the whole restaurant --- I just wouldn't know because I've never needed to inquire about it.

Parizade might be a good option. Or possibly G2B, but I hate to steer you away from downtown. I guess either would beat Southpoint though

It doesn't have to be downtown durham. Anywhere around Durham would be fine. Keep the suggestions coming. I'd like to keep the banquet room/food cost to about $5k. Thanks for the ideas so far. I'll look into bay7 and the other places. Thanks!
