We have special restaurants prepared just for you, from small and cozy locations to big party venues (if you fancy going all in).

We know that every family has its own traditions, maybe you have some meals which you can’t imagine going without during Thanksgiving. Perhaps your dinner table is usually decorated in a special way for this special occasion. Or you play some family games after clearing off the table, and can’t see yourself changing that for anything else? Well, if you decide to rent a venue, you won’t have to forget about any of those things, because your requests will surely be listened to. Most locations allow bringing your own decorations, as long as they are not too messy and don’t disturb the staff. So if you want to have something special and personalized, talk to the host and worry no more. Most restaurants allow many BYOB options. So if you have a homemade treat that you can’t do without, don’t fret about not being able to bring it to the Thanksgiving dinner. And if your family is up for some games, then search through some of our laid-back venues and organize the games you wish. If this doesn’t have you convinced, then maybe some of our venue renting tips will.
No mess, no fuss, no stress
Yes, the typical holiday celebrations with families can cause a lot of stress, a lot of clearing up and someone getting into a spat sooner or later. With event venue renting however, you can avoid all of that and get straight to the good part. Leave the cooking to the chef, leave the cleaning to the staff, and just indulge in each moment, unshaken by any unpleasant events. What better way to feel thankful, than when you can actually be thankful for everything that’s taken care of for you. To be honest, not only are you going to be happy about this choice, but so is everyone else when there’s nothing to be grumpy about!
Savor family connections
The benefits of booking don’t stop on the no fuss part, surely you’re going to be even more happy about the family time you can enjoy. Whether you’re keen on family celebrations or not, a Thanksgiving dinner is hopefully going to make you feel grateful for the family that you have. With everyone in a great mood and smiles on their faces, you’re bound to feel more connected to the people you love. If you have some long lost family members, or ones that live on different sides of the continent, then this is the perfect opportunity for you to refresh those family bonds. Have a drink over the roast turkey, play a game with the younger ones if you’re up for it, or, if the opportunity presents itself, take a few embarrassing pictures of your favorite drunk uncle. Could this be the party that you will remember for years to come?
So much fun
I think we can all agree that going out in itself is just, simply fun. Houston has many amazing attractions to see or visit, if you want to do something else along the way. Check out the local monuments, museums or parks for some extra family bonding activities. And once you’re done, enjoy the Thanksgiving dinner, play family games and forget about work and other stressful things for a few hours at least.
Leave when you want to
And if family events bring a cold shiver down your spine, or you just need a quick getaway, then a venue is also the ideal place for escaping when you need to. If you’re just not feeling like you really want to attend this family celebration, then excuse yourself and worry not about having to explain yourself. Venue renting is, honestly, the best option for all!

The price range for Thanksgiving restaurants in Houston starts at around $1000 and ends at more or less $7500 per session. Depending on the venue capacity and location, the prices will vary. For more affordable options, ask the manager for a BYOB option or if you’re planning a smaller party check if the venue offers rental prices per person, rather than per session.

Although some venues may be closed (please check with the host), you will find that a lot of restaurants will be open on this happy day. Search and filter out the places that you’d like to rent and don’t worry too much about the places being open. The owners want this day to be special just for you!
Definitely think about quite some time in advance, since this is one of the most popular times of the year to book restaurants. For a smaller party, think 6 to 8 weeks in advance, for larger parties even up to half a year in advance. This gives the restaurant a chance to prepare, and you will have definite peace of mind, and one less thing to worry about.
Thanksgiving cannot happen without the delicious, traditional golden glazed roast turkey. Our mouth is watering with the thought of the yummy, perfectly mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries and the turkey stuffing. Can you smell it already? Get in touch with the manager before renting a venue, and ask if they serve all of this wonderful traditional food. In the worst case scenario that they do not serve a dish that you love, you can always ask for a BYO option.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
