The Bowery House & Gardens at 7 Oaks

Today we’re taking a trip to my hometown: Katy, TX for a look at the Bowery House and Gardens at 7 Oaks. The 7 Oak trees on the property give it historic charm as the condition for building the 10-acre land for commercial use is that the oak trees would remain. While our last stop is unique to the Museum District, and our previous venue tours so far have also featured North Houston, this special gem is out west in Kay, TX.

This is an ideal venue for both weddings, birthday parties and corporate events because the Bowery House and Gardens offers multiple options to host your event. Whether you want a rooftop party or wish to get married outside surrounded by oak trees- there are lots of options to use the Bowery House and Gardens at 7 Oaks!

Here are some items to highlight when planning for your event:

Another great feature I’m always a fan of is the ability to bring in outside catering. No matter your pallet, you can hand-pick the culinary artist for your event at The Bowery House. There is a kitchen space available so your catering team can bring in prepared options or cook on site.

How much time does this venue allow for set up?

At the Bowery House and Gardens, there are 3 hours allowed for the venue set up and 1 hour for breakdown included in your rental time. If you will need additional time to set up for your event, additional time is available as an add-on.

What I love about this venue:

The Bowery House and Gardens at 7 Oaks is located in Katy, TX is run by a venue management team that is very concerned about the guest experience. Allen Strickland is always very courteous, welcoming, and accommodating and that goes a long way when you’re interacting with the individuals associated with the space that will bring your event to life!

What’s included

They also provide plenty of tables and chairs for both reception and cocktail hour, whether you host your event indoors or outdoors. And speaking of deciding on indoors or outdoors- you have the opportunity to have so many more scenes in the background of your photos at the Bowery House.

You can have a rooftop wedding, a cocktail hour surrounded by strung lights and oak trees, and a reception in a room with windows on 3 sides that will make you feel like you’ve escaped into an enchanted forest.
