The Cotton Room Durham is a chic and unique special event venue. The old cotton mill was refurbished, leaving beautiful and modern hard wood floors, rustic exposed brick and piping, and elegant glass windows around the permiter of the venue. It is the perfect space for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Don't limit yourself to hotel ballrooms with neutral wall paper and drab (or excessively bright) carpet colors. The Cotton Room is a clean palette waiting to come alive with your vision for your Special Day!

    Amazing venue, great people to work with!

    The Cotton Room was awesome, I had an idea for how I wanted everything to look and they helped make it tangible. It was great rolling catering and décor into their sister companies (Petal and Oak) and made things easier. Devon was our assigned planner and she was great to work with, super receptive and very open to communication. My event went off perfectly and a lot of that was thanks to the venue for making everything run smoothly.

    Extremely easy and well worth the price.

    The all inclusiveness of the Cotton Room made planning our wedding here a breeze and I would highly recommend it. The location is absolutely beautiful and the food exceeded my expectations. No regrets!

The Cotton Room is a fabulous space to work in, really open, lending itself to artistic creation for any vision. Really enjoy the blank canvas and great structure provided by The Cotton Room.
