Groups & Meetings
Whether your group is made up of friends from high school or it's time to celebrate a milestone birthday, Ant Street Inn has a gathering space for the occassion! Reserve our ballroom, or just the New Orleans garden and veranda, for a rehearsal dinner, wine showcase or fundraiser so your guests can enjoy a unique setting in the heart of downtown Brenham!
Our street access ballroom makes a beautiful space for luncheons, large dinners or public meetings. Access to a catering prep kitchen (no cooking), which in addition to counter space has an ice machine, refrigerator and triple sink, gives you or your caterer plenty of set up space for a casual or formal event from 50 to 250. Rental of the ballroom includes use of the adjacent southward facing veranda and garden so your group can mingle in and out while enjoying a glass of wine or appetizers.
Group rentals always includes up to 20 round tables, 10 eight foot rectangular tables and, depending on the size of your group, white garden chairs and tablecloths. Groups not renting all overnight guest rooms must conclude their event by 8:00pm. Rental rates range from $150 per hour to $1,500 per day plus tax. A set up/cleaning fee of $100 is also included on hourly events. Access times to the event spaces are 10:00am - 8:00pm. Earlier access times might be available depending on the circumstances. Call to speak with us about your group's details for custom pricing!
Our prime location, midway between Austin and Houston in downtown Brenham, Texas, makes the Ant Street Inn an attractive destination for business retreats, meetings and conferences. Our two separate meeting rooms offer wireless high speed internet, fax and copier services, projection screens, lecturn, flip charts and stands, and basic beverage service.
The Conference Room, on the second floor of the Ant Street Inn, is available for smaller groups of up to 6 participants. The Ballroom can be configured and sized to accommodate from 7 to 250 meeting participants seated at tables. Using our room divider curtains, we can arrange the meeting space to accommodate any group's size! We even can allow for on-site dinning to be just across the room without bothering your conversations. Don't worry, we never schedule multiple meetings in the ballroom at the same time!
Optional services available for an additional charge include a video/computer projector, sound enhancement, upgraded beverage services and snack/break services.
