The Cotton Room

An Architecturally Rich All-Inclusive Wedding Venue in Durham


The Cotton Room is an elegant, all-inclusive wedding venue. We at Heart of NC Weddings like to call it “the original” warehouse event venue of Durham. Find it on the third floor of the historic Golden Belt District. In fact, it was one of the very first renovated spaces there!

Today, Golden Belt is a chic complex with art galleries, office spaces, bars and eateries. The Cotton Room event venue once wove the fabric of our town. This historic cotton factory created drawstring bags for the tobacco being harvested a few minutes down the road at the American Tobacco District.
