Welcome back! Thank you all so much for keeping up with my tour through The Dartmouth at North Hills. If you haven't read my previous posts, you may do so here (Part 1) and here (Part 2). Today, I'll be showing you around their clubroom, which I was able to use to host a party for Raleigh young professionals!

Unfortunately, my photographers had to leave early (Tatum commuted all the way from Greensboro, and Rachel has a sweet baby boy that she had to get to bed! Shout out to the Blue Barn team, thank you for sacrificing your day!), so there aren't many photos of the party - but they were able to give you a good look into the space! It's an open floor plan with a few private rooms (like this conference room I showed you on Wednesday), featuring a sitting area to watch TV, a bar area with a refrigerator and warming drawer, a pool table, and computer room. Along one wall of windows you can see outside into their amazing pool and patio area. 

Crisp white walls were the perfect canvas for pops of saturated color, splashed over the walls and throughout the furniture. The space felt so stylish and welcoming; a place that begged to host a party. I wanted this awesome space to be seen, so I used it to gather a large group of Raleigh young professionals, creatives, entrepreneurs and business owners for an evening of networking and fellowship. To be honest, I felt like the Hostess-with-the-Mostess with such a stunning setting! You can never beat an event space that requires no decorations! 

A HUGE thank you goes out to all The Dartmouth and all the vendors that participated in this collaboration. I had such an amazing experience, and highly recommend The Dartmouth to anyone looking for an amazing community to live in!
