Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's Houston's original municipal airport, and an Art Deco/Art Moderne treasure. The stunning white structure features exhibit rooms filled with artifacts, photographs, uniforms, aircraft, and memorabilia that illustrate the history of Texas air flight.
  • Host a reception in the curvilinear, two-story Atrium (the airport's former lobby), or in the unique Starliner Theater, with its exposed brick walls and oversized industrial windows. Follow with a reception in the Hangar, where you can dance the night away amid vintage aircraft.
  • Guests get a front row seat to neighboring Hobby Airport's steady stream of commercial, business, fixed and rotary wing airline traffic...it's like having your own private air show!
