If you’re on the hunt for a venue in Athens, you most likely know the culture of Athens. With its rustic brick and authentic graffiti walls, the Athens Cotton Press perfectly exhibits the character of Athens as a city. In fact, built in the early 1900s, this venue used to be home to an actual cotton press owned by the Atlantic Compress Company. Although old, the family who owns it has revamped the event space to look wonderful while still keeping the old charm that it offers.

Located in the Chase Park Warehouses in North Athens, the Cotton Press is only about a six minute drive from downtown Athens. It’s close enough for guests to easily find a place to stay, to keep the party going afterwards, or to simply grab a bite to eat or shop beforehand. Although very close to Downtown, the Athens Cotton Press is in a more private part of town. In addition to the plus of not having to handle Athens traffic, you and your guests will be provided with just enough privacy to make your wedding day personalized and intimate.
