Meridian is Downtown Houston's largest independent concert, party and special events venue in the city. Meridian's doors open early so you don't have to stand outside in line. We also have a large outside smoking area with a beautiful view of downtown Houston. Meridian is centrally located in East Downtown, on the edge of Houston's historic warehouse district. Since opening in April 2004, Meridian has became one of the most talked about Clubs in the country, and has been named “Best New Club” and “Best Club for Out of Town Acts,” by the Houston Press, “Best Live Music Venue” by CitySearch, and “Best Rock Venue” by H Texas Magazine. Come in, cool off, have a drink and meet your friends at the Meridian. · The Red Room is the normal entry into Meridian, where Patrons can come in early and meet out of the weather, enjoy a drink, video game, or pool game before the show instead of standing in line like at other Venues. This provides Meridian enormous flexibility to host a variety of events. Two shows can be performed simultaneously, or a private party can be thrown with a major concert in the next room. The Red Room also provides a more intimate showcase for up and coming acts, giving them the opportunity to grow into Main Room headliners. · The Main Room of Meridian, known as the “Blue Room”, is rapidly becoming a recognized performance landmark for national and regional talent with a reputation as one of the coolest venues in the country. Windows along one wall provide an excellent view of downtown Houston. The Meridian sound system and acoustic properties create the best sounding room of its size in Houston with a full light show. Two bars allow patrons to enjoy excellent service without leaving the show. The room can also be set for private events from dances to sit-down dinners. · The capstone of Meridian, The VIP Room displays a spectacular view of Houston's dramatic skyline, hidden behind the Blue Room stage for an exclusive party area with a private entrance and separate bathroom. Meet and greet events with national acts can be arranged, and private parties held during a major show with direct access to the entertainment.
