AvantGarden is set within a charming historical 1896 Krafthouse with lots of character located in the Montrose/Midtown area near Downtown Houston.

We host various successful events: corporate parties, birthday parties, live music shows, art events, beautiful weddings, and personalized, fun, and low-stress receptions. We host only one event per day, allowing us to fully devote our attention and services to the client to ensure the event is flawless.

AvantGarden has four different areas:

  1. The upstairs is where people usually mingle and dance to a DJ. 
  2. The main bar and lounge area are located downstairs.
  3. There is a front patio with a fountain and a lovely covered back patio where the ceremonies take place.
  4. Our three fully stocked bars offer a wide selection of wines, homemade sangria, micro-brewed local beers, premium liquors, and tea, coffee bar, juice, and soft drinks.

You are allowed to bring in the catering of your choice. However, we have a taco truck permanently on our property, rated as Houston's best Mexican taco truck. Everybody loves their food. Approximately 90% of our weddings hire them.

As a special feature, we have a Pompeii-style wood-burning pizza oven outdoors, and our pizza chef can be hired for private events. The freshly baked pizzas are a hit at every wedding.

For 16 years, AvantGarden has offered local and out-of-town couples a beautiful, unique, fun and authentic venue for their special day.
