Formerly the Benton County Daily Record building and a mid-20th century car dealership. In 2016 Record became a full-scale events venue that takes pride in serving Northwest Arkansas and the Bentonville community. Offering the elevated charm of industrial details like wooden barrel ceilings, old paint, a cement floor and garage doors located in beautiful downtown Bentonville, Arkansas.
We had our wedding and reception at the Record in November - it was absolutely INCREDIBLE! My husband and I immediately fell in love with the space when we toured last year - not only is this venue huuuuge (making it super convenient to have both ceremony/reception under one roof), but it has such a cool aesthetic appeal with the brick, concrete, tall vaulted ceilings/windows, etc. It is an amazing blank slate that can be completely transformed into anything you want - I was in awe when I first walked in and saw all of the decor, tables, flowers, etc.; it was absolutely stunning and was clearly a result of the best teams EVER coming together. The staff were amazing to work with (shout out to Corinne and Patrick) and they already had connections with our wedding planner, florist and catering company so it made everything a breeze!! In short, if you’re looking for a cool venue that is sizable, transformative, accommodating, well-connected to local vendors and has an amazing team to work with, look no further than The Record - you won’t regret it!!!!
We had booked The Record for our wedding. As if the event space isn't fantastic enough, we could not have been more pleased with the event coordinators that are on site. They were so helpful and eager to help wherever they could. We had to cancel our plans due to the pandemic and they were more than willing not only to reimburse our deposit but were so kind in offering to help and check in through the process - even after we had cancelled. We have had friends who could not get out of their contracts at other venues despite there being a global pandemic. The staff at The Record are best-in-class.
I was able to attend a great open house Monday evening to learn more about the venue. It was a fun evening. I saw several familiar faces and made new friends. The catering business I work for (THE EVENT GROUP) has worked with The Record many times. They run a great operation, providing several large open spaces, a friendly management group, and in helping the customer experience a truly unique experience. I strongly recommend The Record for weddings, company conferences and meetings, and parties.
Beautiful venue! With 2 bars?? Perfect. Attended the little craft show here and was impressed at the interior (and exterior space for food trucks). Can’t wait to attend another event here.
Fantastic facility full of potential and located right in the heart of downtown Bentonville. The vibe is industrial yet chic and has all the tools any proper venue should have (a/v, lighting, kitchen, multiple rooms, indoor and outdoor flexibility). Very moldable space with open floor plans easily converted into conference or concert.
