I think this venue is absolutely beautiful. It’s a mix of modern and rustic, which is my personal favorite. Thanks Shawn for showing me around and making me and my wife feel at home. I look forward to doing an event there someday soon.

My wife and I attended the ribbon cutting. Shawn has redone this venue, turning it into a premier spot for any celebration, but especially weddings. We walked into the bridal suite and were blown away by the spaciousness, including four makeup/hairstylist chairs, mirrors and lighting, wall space to hang dresses and a full length mirror among other amenities. The men's area is appropriately laid out like an upscale lounge and is inviting. Venue 116 is conveniently located in Brookshire, but very accessible, even from Houston. My wife and I both knew immediately we would hold our 50th wedding anniversary (not too far off) here. We would also love to have our daughter's wedding reception as well, should she ever find someone worthy. If anyone is in need of a venue for a special occasion, we highly recommend Venue 116.
“We were so blessed to find the Venue 116! I was a little overwhelmed with the idea of coordinating such a big event for 170 people but the Venue 116 accommodated us accordingly. Not only did they ease our nerves going up to the event but they also referred us wonderful vendors that helped the party go on. I felt like this all inclusive package was a true white glove service.”

"We celebrated my moms 60th birthday at the Cotton Gin 116 and it was everything we wanted it to be. We hired a mariachi band and used the outdoor area in the courtyard. So gorgeous with the lights, fountain and atmosphere. My mom was so happy with the way her party turned out. I would highly recommend this place. It is ran by an efficient staff. Very accommodating. I will be back in the future for sure. The interior was really pretty too."

"A hidden gem in Brookshire. Minutes away from the Katy city limits but worth the drive. A beautiful venue for any special event, especially a wedding. The outdoor area is beautiful at night and the staff is very cordial."

"This is a beautiful space for any couple that wants a unique and historical venue for their wedding. There are so many different areas in this venue for amazing photos. The antique looking bars give you the feeling of one of those old bars still around in Houston. I mean they’re really cool looking! Also the staff is amazing. They are so sweet and helpful. And you definitely get the feeling that they love what they do. Highly recommended the Cotton Gin 116."

"Absolutely loved this venue! Our wedding was amazing here! The staff was super helpful and were there with answers to any questions we had! Absolutely recommend them."

Arranged to get a tour of the place to see if it was going to be the right fit for our wedding. They were very welcoming, super informative and detailed. They have the flexibility we were looking for to have the perfect wedding at their venue. Additionally every question was answered which was great, so there will be no surprises and we can be comfortable moving forward with choosing this venue. Beautiful place, amazing details and character to the building.
