studio 215 


Studio 215 is the premier 6,100 square foot event space nestled in downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina. With 25 foot high, vaulted, wood beam ceilings and exposed metal rafters our studio creates a unique atmosphere.  There are two large indoor balconies nestled at each end of the room.  These balconies are perfect for taking your party upstairs or just watching quietly from above.  

HAVING A MORE INTIMATE EVENT? Check out our other space, Little Studio 215. Our 1,100 square foot event space has the same industrial charm, high ceilings, etc as our main studio plus the added feature of our palette wall. This is in the same building, just down the hall.



We provide round tables, banquet tables, cocktail tables, up to 240 mahogany chiavari chairs with white padded cushions, our security guard, as well as Studio 215 staff for your event... The rest is up to you!  We want your event to be as unique as you are.  We ask that you bring in one of our go-to preferred caterers. We allow you to bring in your own alcohol, insured bartenders, desserts, DJ, band, etc.

Guests with sparklers in front of our outdoor patio

Our private outdoor patio is included with the rental of the main studio. It perfectly suits for a rehearsal dinner, live music, an intimate dinner, dance party, cigar bar, or a game of corn hole. 

We were looking for a venue to host our law gala. Mary Jane was great and available at every turn of the planning. The gala ended up being a huge success and everyone raved about the venue and how outside of the box it was from our previous events. Looking forward to next year’s law gala at Studio 215.

Short Cinematic Montage Film

Are photos not enough for you to fully visualize the magic of Studio 215?  Watch the film below to get a true feel for our wedding and event space.

OUR private outdoor patio

It was in the works for several months and has finally happened. Our patio offers roughly 1,100 square feet of outdoor space. It is the perfect place for your guests to get a breath of fresh air, maybe play a game of cornhole. 

We started work on the patio in October 2016, before Hurricane Matthew hit. Check out the video time lapse vlog below to see if we were able to finish it before the storm hit...

Our Location

We are located downtown in the historic fire district of Fayetteville.  Our building is located at 215 Williams Street, a few yards from the intersection of Russell Street and Williams Street.

Wedding reception highlight film

The short film below shows highlights from one of the first wedding receptions in our primary banquet hall.

My husband and I just had our wedding reception at Studio 215 last weekend. The venue is amazing. Mary Jane is kind, knowledgeable, and helpful and the rest of her staff were wonderful too. Our vendors loved this venue, our guests had a fabulous time, and we couldn’t have been more pleased!!!!!!

Little Studio 215

Because of the high demand for a smaller room at our venue we opened "Little Studio 215". It has all of the charm of our main space, but in a more intimate setting. It is perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, small conferences, birthday parties, and graduation parties. Plus so much more!

Little Studio 215 was the PERFECT place to hold my wife’s surprise 40th birthday party! The space keeps the industrial feel of the big room, but creates an intimate atmosphere for smaller parties. We had approximately 60 people with 3 food tables, a bar, and a DJ on the balcony. Mary Jane was awesome, and was available for any questions I had. On the night of the party she also gave us a complete tour of the space. Would recommend to anyone!

probably one of the most unique walls in North Carolina.  Watch the video of the project below...

Work of art

From our giant chalkboard wall in the big studio, to exposed brick walls and spectacular mezzanines, Studio 215 is unlike anything else you'll find in North Carolina. This beautiful piece of work was created by Tiffany Parsons Designs.

Our amazing chalkboard wall

Check out the time-lapse video below of one of the local high school students in action.

Fayetteville finally has an urban venue to rave about. Right when you walk in the door, you’ve walked into a really urban and modern space that feels airy but I love that it can be chic and romantic or transformed into a clean, modern space.

Such a fantastic place for events! Super friendly staff!
