A/V Equipment

A/V Equipment

Below is a breakdown of the A/V for each room of The Cookery.

  • Front Room: in-house speakers with AUX cord for background/cocktail hour music. Note: These are not made for loud tunes nor do they produce enough volume for dancing. We have a wireless microphone, mic stand, and 15’ diagonal HD projector screen available for your use.

  • Courtyard: Two speakers are mounted in the courtyard that are part of the Front Room sound system. Note: These do not connect to the Ballroom Sonos.

  • Ballroom: Sono Speakers are hidden in the four corners of the room and are great for dinner background music. You will simply need to download the Sonos App (on your phone or tablet) and be on The Cookery’s wifi in order to access our Sonos System.

  • Garden: There are no outlets or any provided sound system. We highly recommend APR for a rental system, or speak with your DJ or band on providing a small set-up. The nearest outlet is just inside the dressing suite (simply run a cord under the garage door) to play music during your ceremony. Note: you may need an extension cord!

Other Suggested Items to Rent

If you are having more than 100 guests at your event, you may need to rent additional tables and chairs. No problem! American Party Rentals is familiar with The Cookery's inventory and needs, and will be able to deliver matching rentals to The Cookery.  There may be other rentals you may want to consider - here are a few suggestions:

 

Dance floor and stage

Our polished concrete floor is not ideal for dancing, so if you are planning on having dancing at your event, a dance floor will need to be rented.  

Fortunately American Party Rentals has dance floors that fit beautifully in our space! Dance floors are available for rent in 3’ x 3’ and 4' x 4' squares so the size can easily be altered depending on your dancing needs. 

A stage can also be rented if you are planning to have live music. Stages for your band are optional.


Linens and tableware

When in comes to linen and tableware selections, there are countless choices! 

The Cookery works with American Party Rentals in Durham, who offers countless color, style and texture options. 

While you are more than welcome to rent linens and tableware from any other trusted linen rental company, we make delivery easy when you work with American Party Rentals with their special access to our space.  Plus it's always easiest to get everything from one place!

For the kids!

We do not have any high chairs or toddlers' chairs in our inventory - high chairs and non-folding chairs will need to be rented if you have small children attending your party.
