Nice location for a Bridal Shower

Searching for a nice, upscale location for a bridal shower, probably 20-30 women, all ages.
One concern is parking, as some guests will be coming from out of town and possibly not used
to finding their way around. Would love a location with a view or a nice patio or courtyard. Veggie
friendly would also be a plus. I've thought about the usual spots, Four Seasons, Driskill... but
would like something a little more creative !

  1. Why don't you take a look at Paggi House? It's lovely and gets lots of positive recs. I really like the idea of it for a bridal shower.

      Thanks Rene, but I need a Saturday daytime venue.

    2. Not sure if you want something a little fancier, but Z Tejas has a private room and there's decent street parking around the area (as well as a tiny dedicated lot). Green Pastures is a little old school, but has plenty of parking and private areas that would accommodate that size group.

      Other ideas with private areas:
      Moonshine (parking might be a bit of an issue around here, though)
      Carmelo's (has a private lot)
      Clay Pit (reasonably easy to find nearby street parking)
      Chez Zee (has a private lot and kind of a cute outdoor area)
      La Condesa (their private room may be a little small, though; not sure what its capacity is)
