Houston Texas is known for its sports, medical community, and music but at the heart of the city is the Hobby Center for the Performing arts. Built in 2002, the center has quickly become one of the city’s premier arts buildings as it has captured the attention of hundreds of thousands of artists around the world. But what if you aren’t an artist? What does the Hobby Center offer you?
If you enjoy the art of music or even the art of theater then this is the place for you to be in Houston. The Hobby Center is home to two separate acoustically designed theaters perfect for experience live music and arts. The building itself is a piece of art work and includes a 60 foot wall of class windows that overlook the Houston city skyline. Inside the Hobby Center there is also an American cuisine restaurant that is perfect for pre-show cocktails or after the show dessert. In addition the performing arts Center also includes a grand lobby and the founders club.
The grand lobby of Sarofirms Hall includes a panoramic view of Houston that opens out to an outdoor terrace providing the warmth of daylight and the relaxing glow of sunset to trickle in for all to enjoy. Most often used for meetings, weddings, and award ceremonies this space is traditionally enjoyed during special events due to its high sophisticated architecture. The founders club is also primarily used for meetings and special events, and can be easily booked to fit your needs.
