4. HOTEL ZAZA MUSEUM DISTRICT

6. The Dunlavy
Dramatic Digs: Located on the banks of Buffalo Bayou and Lost Lake, The Dunlavy offers an alluring combination of high-drama glamour and natural splendor. With its “glass treehouse” feel and ultra-luxe crystal chandeliers (more than 40 of them!), this centrally located haven feels both enticingly exclusive and exceptionally welcoming.
Flexible & Fabulous: When you book The Dunlavy for your private event, you have full use of the venue’s shaded patio for your outdoor wedding ceremony, as well as the glass-walled indoor wedding reception space. Which means you don’t have to choose between an al-fresco lounge vibe and formal dining-and-dancing elegance–you can have both!
Room to Revel: Designed to be “perfectly scaled for intimate gatherings,” The Dunlavy has a maximum capacity of 200, but works best for smaller celebrations, with a focus on fine food, craft cocktails, and celebrity wedding style.
