I wanted to thank you and your outstanding staff for being a big part of our successful Gala last night. Venues can certainly make or break an event. The staff was friendly, professional and attentive – we couldn’t ask for anything more. Mike, Arturo and the rest of your team should be commended. It was a pleasure and joy working with you on this event. Based on the numerous comments we have received last night and today, our 2019 Graphic Excellence Awards Gala will be at The Ballroom next year. Pencil us in for April 17, 2019.
Thank you for a beautiful evening! Everyone loved the space and the food, and your staff was wonderful! Your help and support has proven invaluable to this organization. Thank you from your friends at HCCLA.

This was one of the most beautiful and flawless weddings I have ever attended. I would think that perhaps I was prejudice because after all it was my favorite son’s wedding, but people are still telling us how much they enjoyed the wedding and how beautiful it was. The Rehearsal dinner was so much fun and once again flawless. The guests kept thanking us for a wonderful evening and I had to admit that Craig and Kirksey made the magic: the food was perfect; I love Curtain Call; and as promised, the frozen Margaritas were yummy. I have to be honest that not once did I worry about the dinner or the wedding. Craig and Kirksey are amazing and I knew the dinner and the wedding would far exceed our expectations and it did. Both are heroes! Craig and Kirksey were both so kind and generous to Chris and Courtney. I thank you all so much for all you did to make this special day an amazing and magical memory for all of us.

Wow! We felt instantly like we had a family of support! Thank you a MILLION times to the moon and back for such a great event and for your tremendous generosity! I sincerely value our relationship and hope to continue our partnership in the future.

WOW! Words can’t describe what a fabulous party we had for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. Craig was wonderful to work with and helped to exceed my expectations. He came up with a wonderful selection of food, from appetizers to buffet lines. Everything went perfectly! He even made some wonderful recommendations for an amazing dessert display. His staff was incredible and very friendly too! If you are looking for a large space for a event, look no further than The Ballroom at Bayou Place! Thank you Craig for making our daughter’s party one to remember for years to come!

Look no further! This space is phenomenal— a large open concept space to do anything and everything you always envisioned for your one of a kind event, plain carpet(can’t stand floral carpet), beautiful infinity chairs, gorgeous draping, mesmerizing downtown views from the wrap-around, oversized balconies! Craig and Stephanie were the icing on the cake! They are VERY ACCOMMODATING, so helpful and just simply amazing sweet people! Always willing to help with open arms and super quick with responses. We miss them and hope to work with them again in the future!

Just had my wedding there, absolutely amazing! Beyond beautiful space and the staff are great. My wedding was a dream come true with all of their help and beyond anything I could have ever imagined! Words can’t express it enough!

Ask any developers or real estate agents, they will say Location … Location … Location …. Thank you Craig Howard, Ballroom at the Bayou Place, for allowing me and my team at HITDC to transform this venue into a red carpet experience.”

Absolutely amazing venue! Craig, Kirksey and their team go out of their way to make you feel like your event is the only thing on their mind! They worked with our budget to get the most we could offer to our guests. I never had Craig say no to anything I asked for or proposed. His professionalism and experience made it the easy, seamless and successful event! They even had an event before ours and they flipped it in less than an hour and had us ready to go on time as promised. The Ballroom is gorgeous and rivals any 4 star hotel in Houston. Dinner was served hot and on time with no wait or delay. Decorations were done by Kirksey and were straight out of a magazine. So impressed with these gentlemen and I would absolutely host another event here without a doubt!

What an evening! What an Event! Craig and The Ballroom’s staff are fantastic. They made the biggest night of my presidency one of the most memorable in our history. Working on an official thank you… but you have my eternal gratitude for creating the night of my dreams.
— Marji Zamora, President of EWI of Houston
Craig and his staff seem to always go above and beyond. We recently had our Innaugral L’Affaire Du Monde Fashion show and Craig was amazing in his efforts and attention to detail. We are committed to using this venue for our upcoming events. The service and space are priceless. On behalf of our staff and the guests who attended: Thank you and your staff for treating us as family.
