Who We Are
The Veranda is owned and managed by Spice of Life Catering, founded by Chef Mike Bomberg in 2004.
The estate served as a popular restaurant, The Lodge at Castle Hills, for about a decade until December 2011. Chef Mike Bomberg purchased the estate in 2013 and directed an extensive renovation, adding additional event space and a commercial kitchen, while still retaining the charm and elegance of the home, with its natural stone, legacy oaks, and rolling lawns.
Nestled in a lush green haven in the heart of San Antonio, the Veranda is an event space like no other. The original “castle on the hill” offers no less than seven event spaces to mix and match, including the 1931 estate house built of local stone, an artist cottage, an airy covered pavilion, and rolling, oak-lined lawns.
