  • This former theater is a striking architectural gem in the North Loop, with exposed brick, crystal chandeliers, and stylish, creative pop-art accents.
  • Its towering walls make a dramatic ceremony backdrop, and the soaring 30-foot ceiling creates amazing acoustics for live music. There are plenty of rigging points for décor and lighting, and enough space to create a separate cocktail or seating area.
  • Your package comes with great perks, like the assistance of a personal coordinator, use of two luxe dressing lounges, and day-of security services.
