The Dukessa Houston: Galleria Area Gem

The Dukessa Houston is an exquisite event venue located in the Houston Galleria Area.

If you recall we’ve highlighted another venue near the Galleria previously. This event space is extremely versatile in that you can reimagine your room set up for a guest count ranging from 50-300 guests!

They also provide a candle-lit coutyard, wine room and floor to ceiling windows in the Dukessa main ballroom. The Dukessa Houston is a part of the Citadel Hospitality Group which includes: The Citadel, 2840 Cafe at Dukessa, Citadel Catering, and the Dukesssa event space.

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

Linen and centerpiece upgrades on-site? x
Ceremony Areax 
Cocktail Spacex 
Reception Spacex 
Host multiple events at same time x
Outside Catering? x

What I love about this venue:

The Dukessa Houston is perfect for events craving the Galleria Area nightlife. If you’re from Houston you know exactly what I mean. It’s Houston’s version of Timesquare. The single-most centralized place to convene for after 5 events.

If you have a younger crowd who is traveling from out of town, you’ll want to expose them to the nightlife, hotels and bar scene special only to the Galleria Area, and let’s not forget about the mall…major one-stop-shop entertainment locale. Hosting your event at the Dukessa would mean you are just minutes away from all of these amenities.

If you have a lot of out-of-town guests, the options for restaurants, things to do, and places to stay extend beyond just outside the walls of where you will host your event.

What’s included

The Dukessa Houston provides amazing views, indoor and outdoor spaces, and onsite catering.
