Ooh-La-La! Moulin Rouge Opens The Cotton Room

It was an evening of fantasy and fun, complete with purple drapes, red uplights, and jewel-colored cabanas.  Entertainers on stilts, costumed girls twirling lighted hula hoops and swinging from the ceiling for hours on end — all clad in the classic Parisian costumes of The Moulin Rouge. Guests were treated to fine food prepared by Triangle Catering, local beers and wines, and the upbeat, funky and irresistible dance tunes provided by GrooveTown Band.

The Official Grand Opening of The Cotton Room at Golden Belt, a former textile mill in Durham, took place on Oct. 16th. The newly renovated 11,000-sq.ft. event facility, owned by Michelle and Dodd Aldred of Triangle Catering,provides a unique urban venue for weddings and other events. The fantasy cake is by Swank Cake Design.
