    Rio Plaza

    Everybody loves discovering hidden gems and Rio Plaza in downtown San Antonio is an absolute treasure where the sky is truly the limit.

    For about 10 years, the event venue has offered brides, grooms, families, and businesses a myriad of spaces for celebrating special occasions of every kind.
     
    “One of our greatest selling points is that everything is included in the room rentals—tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces and even the set up and cleanup of the event. We also offer complimentary on-site event coordinators for every event,” says Melanie Planas, sales and catering manager at Rio Plaza. “All the services you need are right here.”
     
    Your event has its own personal coordinator and a caring staff who want to ensure a perfect event for their clients.
     
    “We want our brides to choose us because we will make it so stress-free,” Melanie says. “We want our couples to be guests of honor and enjoy their special day and let us worry about the details.”
     
    Whether planning a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or wedding ceremony and reception, Rio Plaza has the perfect venue for everyone.
     
    One of the most popular rooms is the fourth-floor Las Leyendas with hand-painted fresco walls and a Spanish-style barrel ceiling, rustic furniture, wrought-iron sconces and chandeliers, all of which opens to the rooftop patio offering stunning views of the city’s skyline and famous San Antonio Riverwalk. Using both the indoor and outdoor space, this room can accommodate up to 120 people.
     
    Just around the corner is the Penthouse, a beautiful, intimate room with floor-to-ceiling windows, attractive furnishings, and handcrafted wooden wall panels and accents. This area is perfect for small events for around 70 guests.
     
    On the third floor is Calle Vista, which will host up to 130 people. This room has a warm tone with decorative details, exposed wooden beams and wrought-iron chandeliers. This area opens to a small patio with additional seating and both Riverwalk and courtyard views.
     
    Cielo Vista and Grande Vista are both unique second-floor spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Riverwalk and Rio Plaza courtyard. Cielo features a rich, carved oak bar, copper chandeliers and walls that are adorned with intricate hand-painted designs, which lead to eight double glass doors that open to a large wraparound patio. This space will accommodate up to 90 guests.
     
    Grande Vista showcases a gorgeous vaulted dome ceiling with an old-world hammered copper chandelier in the center. Elaborate stained floors throughout create a mystic area lit with more than 20 wrought-iron chandeliers suspended above a granite and copper bar. This large area will accommodate up to 200 people.
     
    For a more festive, casual space, the Rio room opens to our Riverwalk-level courtyard. This beautiful rock patio is enhanced with an authentic, old-style village fountain with a gas flame that reaches to the sky. This area is ideal for events of around 80 guests.
     
    Every room boasts a surround-sound system with multi-device capabilities.
     
    While couples have the freedom to bring in their own vendors like DJs, photographers, and cake designers the catering and bar services are prepared and provided on-site. Food and beverage fees are based on guest count rather than minimums and are completely customizable with many menu packages to choose from, including a variety of tastes from Tex-Mex or American cuisine to soul food, Italian specialties, barbecue or even Jamaican jerk.
     
    “We don’t want to force our clients into spending a certain amount,” says Melanie. “We give them choices and a lot of flexibility. We explore their options and we always consider special requests.”
     
    Rio Plaza strives to take care of its clients, making sure they feel special and are able to enjoy their friends and family instead of stressing over the details. Couples can meet with their on-site coordinator or Rio Plaza will also work with brides and grooms planning from afar.
     
    Competitively priced for its Riverwalk location, couples should be sure to consider Rio Plaza.
     
    “This is an amazing venue at an amazing value.”
     
    Rio Plaza has seen a lot of growth throughout the last five or six years. But we welcome guests who walk through the doors unaware of this hidden gem. The word is out about the Rio Plaza brand, which includes sister companies Rita’s on the River, Mercado Rita’s, Bonita Rita’s, and Pizza Rita’s.
     
    “Rio Plaza is a best-kept secret,” Melanie says.
     
    And so much of that is due to the genuine, easy-going, hard-working staff who are always there for the client, making sure everyone is happy.
     
    “We approach every single event the exact same way by ensuring that your wedding will be the most magical day of your lives and those of your family and friends.”
