Rediscover the magic of downtown at AIA San Antonio’s Beaux Arts Ball Urbane Pop on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at the beautifully restored Burns Building. Strategically located on the corner of Jefferson and Houston Street, the Burns Building is definitely the place to be for a night of showstopping fun.
Like the time-honored adage ‘What’s Old is New Again’, at the Burns you’ll step back into retailing history at this century old department store while also stepping forward into a timeless historic renovation designed for modern use. Spacious storefront windows where men’s fashion was once displayed now pop with historic images detailing downtown San Antonio’s built legacy. Whether you choose to be inside or out, you’ll always at the heart of the party. Inside the spacious lobby you’ll be enticed to linger with friends while sipping craft cocktails and savoring delicious fare. Steps away a one-of-kind Bubble Bar offers sparkling drinks that make sipping fun! Street side, on downtown’s newest urban parklet, you’ll have a front row seat for a parade of incredible entertainment and a spectacular light show on the wall of the Kress Building.
And, there is even more fun to be had!
In a first-time partnership AIA San Antonio is excited to connect our Beaux Arts Ball to Centro’s festive Bubbles & Brass community celebration just across Jefferson in tribute to the 100th birthday of the iconic Kress Building. It’s two parties for the price of one – all good fun in support of architecture and downtown activation.
