Downtown Houston Weddings and Events

Memorable Occasions at The Sam

Natural light floods through the translucent tented roof, illuminating the exposed brick, natural ivy and clean white décor of the room. Downtown Houston’s sparkling skyline sits just outside this indoor space with an outdoor feel. 

Veranda by *17, infused with romance and character, is a stellar setting for Downtown Houston weddings, receptions or celebrations. The unique 215-capacity space features the best of both worlds: Its elegant climate-controlled indoor area opens up to Downtown through a wide window that provides picturesque panoramas, day and night. Consider our Houston wedding venue your personal blank slate. You can adorn the room with décor of your choosing to craft any experience, from a contemporary downtown reception to a more classic, traditional ceremony.
