Built in 1928, The Parador stands as a testament to the architechtural artistry of a Distrcit Era. Marring Mediterranean Style with Byzantine detail, this magnificent building is designated as a Texas Historical Landmark, and is the last of it's kind in Houston's Museum District.

The craftsmanship in creating this stunning five-sided structure is evident throughout The Parador. Intimate spaces evoking a splender of yesteryear meet with the grandeur of stately lounges, echoing a place in time and a beauty that is timeless.

Today, this refurbished masterpiece is one of Houston's premier social and corporate event venues as well as private parties and seminars.

The building offers two large adjoining spaces, each with its own courtyard or garden, which can be reserved individually or used jointly to accommodate larger events.

Inspiring and elegant, The Duomo is the centerpiece of The Parador, offering a spectacular setting for over 200 guests. Light gently flows from its soaring thirty-five foot dome, bathing the exquisite space in golden tones. Deep-hued wood underscores the gracefulness of it three-tiered floor. Architectural details paint a picture of magnificence - through its arched doors awaits a covered loggia with an adjoining garden for guest to explore.

Quaint and distinguised, The Cloister reflects an understated elegance. Connected to the Duomo though carved wooden foors, The Cloister is a 3,000 aquare foot idyllic setting where 230 guests can congregate for refined dinners and unique gatherings. For a change of scenery, The Cloister offers a charming private court-yard where guests can socialize in an open-air environment.



A relaxing stroll through The Gardens reveals the outer beauty of The Parador. An enchanting environment, this stunning garden captures the attention of guests as they follow winding paths through a tranquil setting. Amidst the flora stand sculpted fountains, lending a refreshing aesthetic to the natural surroundings. A picturesque backdrop for a tete-a-tete or a quiet moment away. Read less

I recently had my wedding reception at the Parador and it was amazing! The space is so beautiful and exactly what we wanted. The inside space has a breathtaking dome ceiling, exposed wood and beautiful tile floors. The outside garden area is what really sealed the deal for us. Our wedding was in February and I was worried about what the garden would like in the winter, but it was beautiful!

All catering and day-of coordination is done through Behind the Bash - my contact was Christina Cross, who was an absolute angel!

Since the Parador is a historic landmark, they do have restrictions on what sort of activities you can do when you are leaving (i.e. no sparklers), but that was an easy condition to work around!

I would absolutely recommend the Parador!

Can't say enough good things about the Parador and my day of coordinator Christina. The venue is beautiful first off and looks amazing inside in out (in person and in photos). Also, It's been a month since our wedding and people are still commenting on how good the food was. Behind the Bash was fantastic for food and for day of coordination. I asked what felt like 10million questions and Christina always helped me out. She was amazing and the day was perfect! I'm SO glad we did our ceremony and reception there..it was something different from your typical hotel/country club scene and we loved it!

We just loved the Parador! Beautiful venue. Elegant and classic. Everyone was helpful and responsive. Their catering was phenomenal too. All of our guests were very impressed with the quality of the venue. Very accessible, close to downtown Houston. Easy access, plenty of parking, well maintained. Nice bridal room. We just can't say enough good things!

I had my wedding at the Parador recently and I am so glad we chose this venue! This venue is gorgeous! We fell in love with all the historical details and the beautiful garden in the back. The rental also comes with tables, chairs, silverware, linens, easels, table numbers, free tasting soiree, centerpieces (if you decide to use them), and most importantly...an event coordinator!

The venue also requires use of their catering service, Behind the Bash. Our coordinator, Christina, with Behind the Bash, was awesome. Throughout the whole process, she was very responsive to emails and flexible with last minute changes. She went above and beyond to make our day special and less stressful. All my guests said it was the best wedding food they ever had! The overall cost (venue and food) may be a little high for some, but I felt it was definitely reasonable and worth what you get. I would definitely recommend this vendor!

Absolutely loved working with The Parador, Sheila was great and Rebekah from Behind the Bash was wonderful! The venue was gorgeous on its own, but even more amazing once all of my wedding visions were added in for the big day. The facility is large in my opinion and I loved the fact that you get the whole facility when renting it out. The garden is beautiful as well, unfortunately it rained on my wedding day but they would be perfect for pictures.

We recently had our wedding and reception at The Parador. I fell in love with the beautiful architecture and loved the history behind the venue. It was early spring but the weather ended up being fantastic and we were able to utilize the gorgeous garden for our cocktail hour.

I can not rave enough about Rebekah with Behind the Bash, she is quite the pro at coordinating the event from start to finish. She helped keep the evening running smoothly, including a room flip! I originally had reservations about a room flip between the ceremony and reception, however Rebekah and her team made the process seamless. They were extremely helpful and made me feel at complete ease during the event.

I highly recommend this fantastic venue and wonderful Behind the Bash team! You will be in excellent hands with this seasoned crew.
