The Great Room at TOPO – A Chapel Hill Warehouse Wedding Venue at the Iconic Top of the Hill on Franklin Street

If you went to UNC or grew up in the Triangle, you’ve probably dined at Top of the Hill – the legendary brewery and restaurant that looks over Franklin Street. But did you know that they also have a fabulous warehouse wedding venue, called The Great Room at TOPO?

Located in the space once occupied by the historic Carolina Theatre, The Great Room at TOPO features exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, plenty of natural light, a cathedral ceiling and industrial architectural details. With direct access to both Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery and Back Bar, Great Room wedding guests are guaranteed a quintessential Chapel Hill experience. The Great Room at TOPO is just a short walk away from the Old Well and the Arboretum on UNC’s campus, as well as many hotels, restaurants, bars and other Chapel Hill landmarks.

Brides and their families love the all-inclusive service that comes with a wedding at The Great Room at TOPO. They cover all the basics on-site — from staffing to catering, beverage service, tables & chairs, day-of wedding coordinators, and even the smaller details such as linens and place settings — to make their services as seamless as possible. When booking an all-inclusive wedding at The Great Room at TOPO, you can rest assured that their team has everything covered, so that all you have to worry about is having a good time.

Their space can comfortably accommodate up to 160 guests for ceremony and reception, with ample room left for a dance floor and buffet. The Great Room at TOPO offers a variety of catering packages, from butler-passed appetizers to three-course plated dinners (and everything in-between). Their catering menus are locally-driven and can be tailored to suit your individual preferences and dietary needs. Beverage packages always include six rotating TOPO Brewery craft beers brewed on-site, giving your guests a hyper-local craft beer experience.

Each wedding will have their own catering staff, private restroom facilities just for guests, even their own street-level entrance. From the ceremony to the after-party, the Great Room Complex has a space for every phase of your special day.
