The beautiful Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center actually has "A River that Runs through It." This section of the charming San Antonio River Walk is aptly named, "The Grotto."
The Grotto spans the entire width of Bridge Hall of the Convention Center with numerous trees, foliage, a waterfall that signifies the end or the beginning (depending on which way you are walking) and even a few ducks who have taken up residence in The Grotto area. This incredible space is the ONLY space in all of San Antonio where you can hold a large reception directly onto the River Walk for up to 2,500 people. The space is charming, elegant, very serene and, above all, especially unique to San Antonio.
The cool Grotto is a red hot spot to throw a fabulous party! Located just below the busy halls of the Convention Center – The Grotto has a distinct atmosphere that is a mélange of the best of San Antonio!
