About The Cotton Room

Follow us on Pinterest! www.pinterest.com/tchospitality

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!

To schedule a tour or request information, please email info@thecottonroomdurham.com, or call at 919-530-8380.

    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!

    Amazing Wedding

    We used The Cotton Room for our ceremony and reception space and catering, and we are thrilled that we did. Our assigned coordinator Heather was professional, knowledgeable and a joy to work with, especially on the day itself. She walked us through the planning process from start to finish and was a great resource for advice, recommendations and ideas. She took away a huge amount of stress before and during the wedding day itself and we enjoyed every minute of working with her. The Cotton Room itself is a stunning space that mesmerized our guests and decorated beautifully. Their catering and drink options were exceptional. The menu showcased North Carolina and was delicious, with several guests commenting it was the best wedding food they’d ever had, with even more going back to the buffet for seconds. The bartenders were quick and pleasant, and the bar didn’t run out of any of our drink selections. The Cotton Room was the best decision we made during our wedding planning process, and we could not recommend it more highly.
