Large event in Houston next May

biffchan | Aug 2, 2011 07:10 AM

I am organising a drinks reception for a large University conference in Houston next year. Right now we are looking for venues that can hold around 350 people and have something of a wow factor. At the moment the House of Blues and the Grove have been mentioned. At that scale we are not expecting gourmet food but we do like to think we have fairly high standards. I should point out this a British reception so we usually focus first and foremost on getting the drinks right, followed by a cool venue and then nice canapes. Any suggestions of places we might try.
The conference will be at the Convention Centre downtown so not to far afield would be good. Someone mentioned the Petroleum Club but others seemed to think that might be too far away...
