We loved Houston Hall
Like so many of the couples who reviewed, we were looking for a space different from the typical banquet hall. We toured many different venues (including multiple breweries as we love craft beer) and I knew when we saw Houston Hall that it was the one. The setting is absolutely beautiful! Day of our guests couldn't stop commenting about how gorgeous the place was!Sent on 04/16/2019
Amanda was great to work with. She was very responsive and we never felt out of touch with her. She made the whole process seamless. We just showed up and the place was gorgeous. Everything went smoothly.
The food was amazing. Our friend commented on the importance of an on site kitchen and how at most weddings, you see an appetizer once and then never again but at our wedding the appetizers kept coming around and were delicious. The sliders and the chicken empanadas especially were a big hit. My mom was very worried about the family style meal and that there wouldn't be enough food but it just kept coming. Everyone loved the family style meal! As a vegetarian (my partner is not), I felt like I had so many options and that I could eat as much of what I wanted. Highly recommend the brussel sprouts.
Definitely recommend Houston Hall for anyone looking for a beautiful place for their wedding!

My now-husband and I knew we did not want a typical ballroom style wedding and also wanted it to be convenient for our friends and family who mostly live in the NYC area. We had been to Houston Hall on a few occasions and loved the raw space with exposed brick and lighting and all the charm this place has! So, it was a really easy decision when were looking for both a ceremony and reception venue. When we decided to book, Amanda, our events manager for the wedding, walked me through everything from start to finish, and was SO accommodating with absolutely everything. She answered my million questions so promptly and professionally throughout the entire planning process. On the day of, she made sure everything ran smoothly and was super organized with all of the many to dos of the day. The crew at HH (from the bathroom attendants, to the waiters, to the bartenders) were all amazing and my guests had the time of their lives that night. In fact, a month later, and so many of them are still talking about how it was the best wedding ever. Thanks so much to Amanda and her team for an unforgettable night and wedding of my dreams!Sent on 08/07/2018

Amanda was one of the most helpful wedding vendors we worked with. We had a million questions, and she always responded so quickly and professionally, and was very flexible and accommodating to my demanding needs. I highly recommend Houston Hall, it was a beautiful venue with natural light (from the skylights), and you can really bring life to the space. The food was also INCREDIBLE. Everyone kept talking how much delicious food there was, and no one could stay away from the late night soft pretzel!Sent on 07/24/2018
