It was certainly an awesome location but PLEASE use the restroom prior to going. The building is humongous but there are only 2 restrooms and the crowding is insane...

Spacious and clean. This place appears deceiving from the outside; once inside, the armory is a really nice and well-maintained venue for events.

The floor is very sticky. Nice open space.

Nice space for an event, attended a wedding nice if you need a nice size space and are on a budget. You could decorate and make it look like your own and the parking is convenient.

The acoustics in the venue are not very good. There should be more sound speakers near the back of the building.... especially since there is a high stage that is a good distance from the back of the room.

We went to the Patchwork Market that was held at the Armory. The Armory was actually a very nice facility and the parking was quite convenient.

It was clean and roomy. Enough room for the event that night. The event was Drag Queen Bingo and I had a great time. It was my first time attending, and I'm definitely going back.

The Durham Armory is a nice venue. The shows were nice and the VIP balcony area and green room are also nice luxuries.

The Durham Armory is awesome! Great place to see live events like the one Triangle Kickboxing Promotions put on a couple weeks ago. This kickboxing event is a must-see. I traveled 2 and 1/2 hours just to see it. Amazing amateur and pro fighters put on a great show! You can't find anything like this in Charlotte. I've also had the pleasure of fighting for this promoter. They never disappoint, and the Durham Armory is a wonderful supporter. I will be back! 😊

I was part of a fashion show at this location. I have no complaints. The facility was real nice. Close to the parking deck.

Good place but you have to go across the street to park. The parking is free sometimes but other times you need to pay. While in there for a party, the AC was on in the beginning but as more people arrived they turned it off and it was very hot. Not to mention the people were very strict and make a big deal abt everything.

I've always enjoyed attending events at the Durham Armory. It's very spacious and can accommodate any occasion. I attended a line dance party there and had a ball!! I saw people I hadn't seen in years. On another note, the Armory is reasonably priced to rent. It's rentable for a six hour interval. Unfortunately, it was booked every Saturday for the year when I wanted to rent it for a date in September when I inquired back in February.

This is a great old building that can be rented out for events. It has a nice open floor plan and a wrap around second level balcony. I've been to a bunch of different events here, everything from pancake dinners, to festivals, to weddings, to conventions, to concerts. They all worked well in this space. And then of course you are right in downtown Durham which is awesome. :)
