Juan Cao is a serial entreprenuer who is renowned for his skills as a designer, concept creator and builder of unique venues. He co-founded Hughes Hangar, and was responsible for developing the concept and design for the highly successful bar and event space. He also created The De Gaulle (named after Paris's international airport), which was inspired by historical Paris and its trademark decadence.
Seeing the demand for Hughes Hangar as an event space, Juan later left to create his latest project - The Astorian. With The Astorian, Juan drew inspiration from 1920's glamour and Grand Central Station in Manhattan. Since launching in March 2015, The Astorian has hosted some of Houston's most spectacular high-profile events.
