Creative space downtown Durham

The Fruit is a creative art space which serves as a venue for performance art, events, parties, album releases, meetings, photo/video shoots, weddings and whatever else you can dream up.

Every space inside the Fruit was styled with video and still photography in mind. Thoughout the building there are many eclectic wall textures, great for backdrops, with ceiling heights between 7ft to 13ft. Each area has its own style, malleable to your creative vision.

Walking into the building you arrive at the lounge and cafe. Most frequently used as an area to convene, the cafe has a chill and cozy vibe. A bricolage of furniture and decor, paired with plywood walls, add a hip and stylish backdrop.

On the warehouse side, there is nearly 3000sqft multi-purpose space. With three metal roll up doors providing natural light options, painted brick walls, and black painted concrete columns this side of the Fruit provides an industrial style.

An L shaped porch wraps around the ground floor of the building. The exterior is painted brick. A portion of fencing is enclosed and available for private natural light shoots.
