Private Events FAQ
How many guests can you accommodate?
We have 7 unique spaces at White Oak Music Hall and Raven Tower that can be used together or separately to create your event. Our largest space, The Lawn, can independently accommodate up to 500 guests for a seated banquet-style event and over 2,000+ for a cocktail-style event or corporate activation. The whole complex can also be combined to host grand Productions of over 3,000 guests. We can also host intimate get-togethers for as few as 20 guests, as well as opportunities for private spaces during ticketed concerts, which would feature with private seating and bar service.
Can multiple events go on at the same time? Can concerts also be going on during events?
Yes, the building is meticulously designed to execute multiple events and concerts. Each space does have a private point of entry, and we take great care to not overwhelm the property for everyone’s comfort and enjoyment of the spaces.
What kinds of events can be hosted?
You name it! Social, Corporate, Wedding Ceremonies & Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners, Engagement Parties, Non-Profit Galas, Birthday Parties, Conferences, Meetings, Seminars, Team Building, Product Launches, Press Conferences, Networking, Conventions, Award Programs, Graduations, Faith-based Services, Anniversaries, Reunions, Bar/Bat/B’Nai Mitzvahs, Sweet 16, Quinceañera, Green/Eco Events, Sports Activations, Festivals…so anything and everything!
Is there an age minimum for events?

Are there indoor and outdoor spaces?
Yes, we have a number of versatile indoor and outdoor spaces, and all of the outdoor spaces do have the capability to be tented in case of inclement weather. And that view...that beautiful downtown Houston view! Check out our photo gallery and see what we mean!
Do you allow outside Catering?
We have an approved list of versatile and extraordinary caterers who are familiar and comfortable working in our very particular spaces. They range from casual food trucks to discerning fine dining, and can work with a myriad of budgets. We do selectively accept outside catering from non-list professionals in dietary, religious, and sponsorship instances, and any additional caterer must be approved by WOMH before they are contracted.
Do you allow outside alcohol?
No, but because WOMH holds its own liquor license, we can fully customize any bar or beverage package to suit your needs, including off-menu special requests and rare finds. We can work directly with any beverage company to arrange sponsorship and donations.
Can I bring in outside event vendors?
Yes. We do have a curated list of the best event professionals to cover all of your needs, but you are welcome to bring in approved outside vendors for decor, entertainment, photography, etc.
What does it cost to rent the spaces?
In short: It just depends. In addition to being a dynamic event space, we are also a working concert venue and bar, and pricing will vary by exact space and date. Please inquire for pricing and availability!
Do you have a planner on site?
Our events team are at your service to assist you with all the details of your event, from vendor recommendations and bar package selection to logistics details and timeline. On your event day, we are on hand to execute details pertaining to the venue and to make sure your guests have a fab time! We also have stellar recommendations for outside planners who are dedicated to your every personal and decorative detail leading up to and during your event!
Is there parking?
Yes, and lots of it! We have a number of lots with options for self-parking and Valet service. For more information, click the “Parking” link under the “About” header at the top of this webpage.
