We had our wedding and ceremony at the Petroleum Club of Houston and worked with Shawn and Jeremie.

The venue was perfect for our Gatsby themed wedding with all the vintage 1920's feel the place had. We were lucky we got in before they moved to their new location because the old location went perfect with our theme. I have seen pictures of the new venue and it is extremely nice too! I am sure it will be nothing short of spectacular after working with the team there.

My husband and I chose the Discovery Room at the Club for our reception. We absolutely loved how beautiful the space is, not to mention the staff is friendly, helpful, and attentive. Working with Jeremie was so easy, she is so sweet and great to work with. Everyone raved about the venue, view, food, and drinks and I am so thankful to have chosen such a wonderful venue to work with.

The Petroleum Club is THE PLACE to get married in Houston. No other venue will even compare the club's incredible views. They're simply breathtaking and made our wedding reception truly memorable.

On top of all of this, the food is fantastic. We went with the dual seated plates consisting of their chicken topped with lump crab meat and a 6oz (maybe 8?) filet. Delish! The dressing on their salad maison is probably the best dressing I've ever had. Too bad the recipe is a secret. We also decided to go with the sorbet "intermezzo", and that was definitely the show stopper. It had this awesome lighting and dry ice presentation coming from underneath. It's been two weeks, and everyone is still raving about it!

I will say that the girls working there are a little slow to respond via email. Evidently, ExxonMobil sold their building, and the club is moving to a new location. The girls have been busy with that, so it leaves little time for them to respond to emails.

While I'm sure the new club will look fabulous, I can't help but feel sorrow for the people who will miss out on this special location. Even the restrooms were fun, being camouflaged into the wooden walls and whatnot. At least the food will still be amazing!

I highly recommend the Petroleum Club. The pricing is very reasonable, and you'll definitely have the wedding/reception of your dreams here!

Beautiful venue! Amazing service! - I walked away from the table, and the server actually asked me, if I was done with my drink - that NEVER happens! So, I think they were amazing! And food was AMAZING, even better than the taste testing. And they allowed us to add some extras in there - balloon drop, photo booth and s'more bar! Yes!

My daughter's evening wedding reception was everything we dreamed. The views of downtown Houston were breathtaking. Our guests continue to compliment the food and service. My only complaint was the club was slow to respond to an incident of broken glass on the dance floor but this was minor considering how smoothly everything else flowed. We also had the Petroleum Club provide the wedding and groom's cakes and both were decorated exactly as requested and delicious. Jeremie was delightful to work with albeit slow to respond to emails and phone calls. Nevertheless, the reception was gorgeous and was in my daughter's own word "perfect."

This venue is beautiful, and we were extremely happy with how our wedding went. Everything on the day of the wedding went exactly as planned and the service was great. We also felt that it was a very good value for the money. However, planning an event with the Petroleum Club is a nightmare. It took weeks (literally) to get a response on any emails we sent. It was impossible to get ahold of our contact by email or phone, and the estimated BEO was wrong in about 15 ways from what we originally agreed (they corrected it, but still). If we had to do it all over again we would still have our wedding at the Petroleum Club, but it was definitely a frustrating experience at times.
