Transform Your Vision into a Unique Experience...

The River Room at the Discovery Center

The River Room is a grand industrial historic space, perfect for hosting your next event. Featuring high ceilings, brick walls and gorgeous arches, the River Room is a sensational back drop for any occasion.

Being relatively new to the venue circuit, we can guarantee that your guests haven't experienced another event in a space quite like it. With the option to use most any vendors you'd like and the ability to transform the space into your personal vision, the River Room at the Paper Discovery Center is the ideal space for your celebration.

With an expansive indoor floor plan and a 100' patio right on the Fox River, there is plenty of space to accommodate any style event you would like.

Available for year round rentals that accommodate up to 150 people.
