The Crystal Ballroom is a 1913 historic ballroom located in the heart of downtown Houston’s Rice Hotel. Originally the capitol of the Republic of Texas, this is one of Houston's most unique and historic landmarks. 

The Crystal Ballroom is resplendent with crystal chandeliers, heroic murals, 35-foot ceilings and a full wraparound terrace. The 5,600 square foot event space and the adjunct 1,400 square foot parlor provide an ample space for up to 400 guests for a seated meal, with a dance floor. Sambuca, one of Houston’s most exclusive caterers, provides food and beverage service. The adjoining Empire Room is an elaborately furnished space designed for receptions of groups up to 120 people. Located on the same level as the Crystal Ballroom, the facility has a full video/Power Point presentation system, 20-foot serving bar, private terrace, sound system and a mini-kitchen for caterers. Ceilings 22-feet high, a soaring eighteenth-century fireplace and crystal chandeliers make for a room to remember.

Premier location for Houston weddings, Houston wedding receptions, Houston event and party space & Houston banquet halls. For more information, contact Jamie Purpera at 713.227.7423.
