The Astorian, a dedicated event venue in the Heights neighborhood, has hosted fashion shows, concerts, weddings, and other events since opening in March. Located in a building designed as a landmark by the Houston Historical Society, the loftlike space with 14-foot ceilings blends industrial elements such as concrete floors with Art Deco details. Expansive windows provide skyline views of downtown. The space comprises a 14,000-square-foot ballroom that holds 400 for receptions, as well as a 14,000-square-foot rooftop slated to open in the fall. The space offers amenities such as a stage, catering kitchen, and greenroom/bridal suite.
