Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is the capacity of the venue?
The downstairs area of the venue can accommodate 150 - 208 seated guests depending on how the seating is configured. We have 15 tables that seat up to 10 guests = 150 guests seated at round tables. We also have seating downstairs for an additional 58 at bar tops/with barstools. (Of course we can accommodate a smaller number of guests in such a way as to make your event feel inviting and intimate.) If your guest count is over 240 we require that you rent the balcony (an additional charge of $650). With the balcony, The Majestic Metro can accommodate up to 270 seated guests (seated at round tables set in boxed-seating reminiscent of a 1940's New York dinner club). With a cocktail style reception we can host up to 500 guests.
2. May we bring in our own caterers?
Yes, please contact us for the details regarding bringing in an outside caterer.
3. What are the parking options?
As we are located in the Market Square/Historic District of downtown Houston, there are several convenient parking options... street parking, numerous surface parking lots, and parking garages surround The Majestic Metro. Valet service can also be contracted for your event. Please ask our staff to provide details on all parking options.
4. Do you have special hotel rates for your clients and their guests?
Yes, the beautiful Hotel Icon and the fabulous Westin Houston Downtown offer special rates for our clients and their guests. They can also offer shuttle service to our venue (ask them for details). We are also steps away from the light rail which enables you and your guests to stay at any hotel in downtown Houston and the museum district and be minutes via the rail to our venue. Super convenient!
