Spring of 2011
Bayou City Event Center has opened! …and has done so with a bang. Their opening event, on May 7th, 2011 was the very successful Child Advocates Gala, a fantastic, circus-themed dinner for 830 guests which raised over $765,000 for the charity.

This event site is one of Houston’s premier event centers, consisting of two separate, brand-new venues on the same property. The Event Center is a first class banquet facility, perfect for weddings, galas and corporate functions with seating for up to 1,600 guests. The Pavilion is a covered outdoor facility that will accommodate up to 500 guests. Full bar service and the client’s choice of caterer and other outside vendors are available at both venues.
Genuine Hospitality Consulting has been involved from the beginning with every aspect of the food & beverage portion of these facilities, from designing the state-of-the-art kitchens, to overseeing their installations, to guiding the principals’ decisions on exactly what the venues would offer in terms of food and beverage, and how they would do so. It has also designed and implemented its bar program and has selected and trained the bar staff. GHC also provided easy-to-use templates for all the forms that are necessary to run the bar efficiently, such as:event set-up sheets, inventory sheets, bar break-down and analysis sheets, and more. Genuine Hospitality Consulting also designed the custom database that is used in daily operations, and will service and refine that database as Bayou City Event Center grows.
