The River Center
340 SW 3rd St
Des Moines, IA 50309
The River Center is a unique venue, rich in its Des Moines history and industrial in its design. At the end of the 2020 summer, The River Center was expanded to the entirety of the building. The space breaks out into two separate event venues, River Center North and River Center South, or can be utilized as one large event space. While the space is beautiful on its own, The River Center is a full-service event venue offering high-quality, made-from-scratch food prepared by the talented culinary team.
All rentals include the use of the entire venue space, mezzanine level, private suite, and outdoor covered patio! We also include an initial room set-up and tear-down, in-house: tables, chairs, in-house linens, china, flatware, and glassware. Each client has full access to our in-house sound system, projectors and projection screens, house standard microphones, and Wi-Fi. We also provide an on-site Manager on Duty during your reservation to make each event stress-free!
