About Crystal Ballroom at The Rice

The Crystal Ballroom is a 1913 historic ballroom located in the heart of downtown Houston’s Rice Hotel. Originally the capitol of the Republic of Texas, this is one of Houston's most unique and historic landmarks. The Crystal Ballroom is resplendent with crystal chandeliers, heroic murals, 35-foot ceilings and a full wraparound terrace. The 5,600 square foot event space and the adjunct 1,400 square foot parlor provide an ample space for up to 400 guests for a seated meal, with a dance floor. The Crystal Ballroom partners with skilled teams that have developed carefully curated food and beverage menus, tested to absolute perfection, and tailored to any taste and budget.
