It’s commonly known that when you’re in Texas you have to go big or go home, and when you’re partying in the Lone Star State it’s certainly no exception. Houston, the state’s most populated city, is an excellent place to celebrate life’s big moments with a myriad of locations and experiences that are certain to impress and create magical moments that will last a life time. Here are a few of the best Banquet Halls in Houston!
Get ready for a wild night surrounded by your friends and family (and 6,000 animals from around the world!) by booking a private event at the Houston Zoo! Rub elbows with Elephants, Komodo Dragons, Piranhas, Parrots, and more while enjoying the gorgeous vistas the grounds provide. Venues that you can book include the Gorilla Treehouse, the Sea Lion Deck, the Reflection Pool, and, if you’re feeling really adventurous, even the Reptile House! Once you’ve decided on the perfect location for your gathering, you can add experiences like live animal encounters, scavenger hunts, and live DJs and bands to really set the mood.
The Majestic Metro
Step off the street and into the heyday of the Silver Screen by holding your party at the Majestic Metro. This former movie palace was scheduled to be demolished in the mid-1980s, but a group of concerned Houstonians restored it to glory and have been using it as an event hall ever since. It’s a gorgeous venue with plenty of eye-catching details that remind you of the golden age of Hollywood. Whether using it for a corporate event or throwing a 1920s themed speakeasy, a party at this venue will impress even your most ritzy of friends!
If you’re looking for an authentic ‘Only in Texas’ experience, look no further than the Firehouse Saloon. Owned and Operated by firefighters for over 20 years, the atmosphere in this one-of-a-kind dance hall is pure country. Need a stage for live music? They have it. Want to dance the night away in your cowboy boots and Wranglers? Here’s the place to do it. Holding your event here is guaranteed to make your special evening the most talked about hootenanny in town.
Sometimes you want to have a gathering in a beautiful setting where the conversations are the centerpiece, and it’s all about having that meaningful connection, without the distractions of traditional ‘parties’. If relaxing is your main goal, then look no further than Discovery Green, nestled in the heart of Downtown Houston! With several differently themed areas to choose from, you’re certain to find the perfect location for your get together. Take a moment to kayak on the pond, play on one of the numerous playgrounds, marvel at all of the modern art, of (if you’re planning a winter party) even ice-skate the night away!
Of course, making sure that you have the best food Houston has to offer is equally as important as picking the right venue. Luckily, the great people at Goode Company Catering have you covered! Offering both delivery and full service catering, they deliver finely crafted dining experiences that all of your guests are going to love. Famous for their BBQ and Tex-Mex flair, they offer quality food and service for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (and they can also set up full service bars if you want to have a really good time). So get out there and party it up, Houston Style!
