With more than 20,000 square feet of unparalleled event space, the Clinton Center is perfect for private dinners, after-hours cocktail receptions, educational lectures, and more.

At more than 5,000 square feet, the Great Hall and Terrace is the premier special event venue in the Clinton Center. Its 40-ft. ceilings, bamboo floors, and glass walls offer guests a spectacular and unforgettable panoramic view of downtown Little Rock. The Great Hall comes equipped with a state-of-the-art audio/visual and lighting system, including a 12,000-lumen projector and a 25-ft. floor-to-ceiling projection screen. With a touch of the button, translucent sun and black-out shades can turn the Great Hall’s glass walls into the perfect environment for video conferencing, movie premieres, or multimedia presentations.
Garden View Room
With more than 2,600 square feet of space, the Garden View Room serves as the perfect size for smaller gatherings. Surrounded by three glass walls, the Scholars Garden becomes a beautiful backdrop for this brilliant, contemporary setting.
Forty Two, the on-site and full-service restaurant for the Clinton Center, is the perfect venue for a cozier, intimate environment. Forty Two is located on the northern edge of the facility, and its 2,000 square feet offers sweeping views of the Arkansas River and the renovated 1899 Clinton Park Bridge, one of the inspirations for the library’s bridge-like building. Forty Two also features a river-view terrace, where modern architecture and natural beauty converge.
Lined with oak trees and flowers native to the area, the Scholars Garden invites guests to enjoy their event outside. The garden is located between the Choctaw Building and the National Archives and Records Administration building. This 18,000 square foot green setting is ideal for company meets-and-greets, luncheons, or a late afternoon cocktail reception.
Clinton Presidential Park Bridge
The renovation of the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge, formerly known as the Rock Island Railroad Bridge, into a ramped pedestrian pathway compliments President Clinton’s vision for his Presidential Center, which was “building a bridge to the twenty-first century.” This bridge anchors the east end of the 14-mile Arkansas River Trail, which runs along both the north and south banks of the Arkansas River. The bridge can also be utilized for special outdoor events, atop the Arkansas River with the most spectacular view of Little Rock.
William E. “Bill” Clark Presidential Park Wetlands
The William E. “Bill” Clark Presidential Park Wetlands includes the restoration of 13 acres of wetlands along the Arkansas River adjacent to the Clinton Presidential Library. The Wetlands is designed to showcase wildlife and river life in a restored wetlands habitat for the education and enjoyment of millions of national and international visitors to the Clinton Presidential Park and Library. The Wetlands is named for William E. “Bill” Clark, an avid outdoorsman and strong business, civic, charitable, and political leader in Arkansas for more than three decades. The area also offers two pavilions, perfect for an outdoor gathering.
