River Center and the dsm Dinner Party 1/14/21

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.

In case you missed this exclusive dinner party celebrating the unveiling of dsm Magazine’s newest issue, you can now view the event recap and recorded event here. This dinner party offered a to-go style four-course meal to be enjoyed during the virtual event. River Center’s sister company, Doré Bakery, provided the delectable dessert to top off the delicious meal. The winter-approved meal was as follows:
