Event Spaces

Imagine an evening of lively conversation with friends, family, or clients along with good food, spirits and music, set in a century-old French chapel … or in a large garden under grand pecan trees … or in a limestone-walled, antique-filled dining room … or in a multi-media-ready lecture hall adjacent to a contemporary art exhibition.  From 20 guests to 500, we have a distinctive setting for your event.
