Cocktail Reception

There is nothing quite like a party on the Riverwalk—and Howl at the Moon throws the cocktail reception you have always dreamed of. Whether it is a wedding celebration or a gathering amongst friends, Howl San Antonio knows it is going to take more than salty appetizers and cheap mixers to get the night going. Delicious and bountiful hors d’oeuvres, creative drinks and the city’s best live show makes Howl the cocktail party venue for hosting unforgettable nights.

Our live music show can also be made optional for private events. The show can be tailored to meet your company’s needs.
