About The Ark

The Ark is a banquet hall and wedding venue that is situated in Katy, Texas. It is similar to the Red Oak Ballroom locations that are in the cities of Austin, Houston, and San Antonio and by the same owners. The individuals that run the location have more than three decades of experience in the event industry. Having assisted couples, individuals, companies, and more in hosting celebrations, meetings, and the like, the team knows how to make a memorable event.

Facilities and Services

The building that The Ark is located in is separate from all the buildings around it and is a structure full of comforts. It is just off of IH-10 West, which makes accessing the building straightforward for those that live in the area. Inside the banquet hall is a large ballroom, which spans 3,200 square feet. Spacious, this room is also sophisticated and full of grandeur, ideal for an elegant event. There are windows that rise from the floor to the ceiling, letting natural light permeate the air. Beneath your feet, you and guests step on hardwood flooring, a classic and timeless touch to this charming space. In addition, a large light fixture hangs from the ceiling, further helping the location exude a sense of luxury. Here you may celebrate with up to 120 guests. Smaller gatherings can be held outside on the patio, which is attached to the ballroom. With space for 20 to 40 people, the alfresco locale offers views of the detailed landscaping. This is also an ideal location for the ceremony to take place, right next to the joys of nature.

Services Offered

The team at The Ark is dedicated to making your special day one to remember. They pride themselves on their attention to the many details that make up your magical wedding. In addition, they know that throughout the process of making your event become a reality you can face a number of choices.

    Love this Venue!

    I absolutely love this venue. It has 3 rooms. Emy Rose and staff at The Ark were super helpful. The communication is great and I didn't have to worry about anything. All I had to do was show up and enjoy my day! Their customer service is excellent! The pricing is affordable, yet you get such a great package!
