Our Story
From the Beginning 

A group of professional caterers and hospitality employees envision an event space like no other. A space vast enough to hold large events without compromising the ambiance and charm of a quaint family gathering. A place that is rich in history with significant ties to our communities. A place to bring people together and memories to be made.



One Great Find

After about three years of searching destinations for miles and miles in different directions and viewing countless buildings, we still did not have a location or a building. We did not know exactly what we wanted but we had seen a lot we didn't. Finally, our persistence paid off. With the help of some locals, we were led to an aging, almost forgotten piece of our past. What was once the core of a community was weathered and deteriorating. The old Cotton Depot in Clinton SC quietly sits on the edge of downtown. From the moment we walked into the building, it spoke to us, 17,000 square feet of handmade brick each telling a story, 11ft ceilings with exposed beams, arched windows, and wide-planked floors. A place where many dreams and aspirations had been made and will be again. We had found our diamond in the rough.

The Fun Begins

We immediately began designing the space. Through our catering experience, we had learned the need for easy access, maintaining a good flow, and having conveniently located facilities. We also knew the importance of having multifunctioning spaces that can be dressed up or down to make each event uniquely yours. From the most elegant affair to down-home country charm, Cotton Loft is merely a canvas. The picture we paint is yours. We are limited only by our imagination. We are now taking reservations for events. 

Who We Are! 

With 11,000 square feet of space, this is an event complex. On-site we have a wedding chapel, private rooms for the bridal party, beautifully designed gardens for pictures, a horseshoe pit, and a corn hole. We are available for all types of events seven days a week. We offer packages including tables, chairs, linens, bars, and bartenders all designed especially for you. We invite you to make an appointment to visit The Cotton Loft. We would love to hear the details of your upcoming event. We welcome individuals, wedding and event planners. We look forward to talking with you and being a part of your next event.
