Music or Coffee Lover? The Blending Room + Coffee Bar at Houston Station Might Be a Perfect Addition
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Yes. You've seen the photos of gorgeous weddings at Houston Station. But what you may not know is that 90% of Houston Station couples use the Blending Room to extend their reception. Which got me to thinking...how many couples actually choose Houston Station for the Blending Room? Inquiring minds want to know! With this being Music City, there is a clear attraction to a post-wedding reception lounge that allows the couple to host an after party. Plus the aroma of gourmet coffee, blended in-house is equally appealing.
The Blending Room is definitely a great complement to a Houston Station wedding. As a lounge across from the main reception area, the Blending Room is cozy, eclectic, and houses Noteable Blends, a mobile coffee-bar. Both the lounge and the coffee are the domain of Scott Davis, a coffee aficionado who is as passionate about great music as he is about creating a great coffee experience.
The Blending Room: a Multi-Purpose Lounge with Musical Stage!
Scott tells me that The Blending Room has a "live, active stage" with musical instruments. If you or your fiance are musicians, you can have a music set after your wedding and invite friends and family to partake.
The space can be transformed into many configurations to allow its use for various events, including a rehearsal dinner, groom's room, cocktail party, or even for a parent wind-down area once the party really gets started in the main area of the venue!
As you can see from the photos I've included below, the space is cozy and full of personality. We even hosted a workshop here and the room went from being set-up in church style (yes - they have real pews) to reception style for our bride class. You can use the props and tables available or you can have the seating cleared and rentals brought in, from cocktail tables to long, square tables.

If not, you can work with Noteable Blends to set up a coffee bar at your venue. The options are truly limitless.
