Venue Visit: Kress Terrace

Kress Terrace is the sister venue to Suite 300 (reviewed last time) Kress Terrace is an intimate yet expansive rooftop indoor/outdoor special events facility in the heart of downtown Greensboro. Our venue has been specifically designed to accommodate a full range of events, from business events, fundraisers and reunions  to community celebrations, rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions. Kress Terrace is located on the fourth floor of the renowned S.H. Kress building with unmatched city views and equally  impressive indoor beauty.  Along with the authentic charm of the 1930’s, original distressed brick, copper, dark plank hardwoods and high ceilings, Kress Terrace also offers all the modern amenities essential to a successful event.

They were setting up for an event so I didn't get many photos but be sure to read the comments under each.

A great area for a ceremony or cocktail hour!  I would use the wall as the back drop and then dress it up :).

Inside the reception area - a blank slate is great to start with and add your own touches!  The lounge furniture can be used inside or out and comes with the rental.  I couldn't get a photo because people were sitting on it!

Very pretty - the cocktail tables would have looked better with mint green to the floor and then the runners over top.

This was the location of the very first wedding that I was ever paid to plan!  It didn't look like this back then, but the lady that had owned the venue told me that I was the first person to ever use colored table linens!  :)

Overall this venue gets a B - very nice, but again the entrance is through a garage and it is small.  They say they can seat 150 but I wouldn't go over 100 to make sure you have room for people to mingle, a dance floor and ample space for the cake table.

Happy Planning!
