Reviews from our Non-Profit and other event guests


"★★★★★" – YELP

Our experience working with Mercury Hall was flawless from start to finish. The staff was incredibly accommodating, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue to host our event. Aside from all of this, Mercury Hall also has two things going for it that you don't find a lot of other places around town - Central Austin location AND lots of parking! - Shannon Hartigan Contreras, St. Davids Foundation

Mercury Hall was the perfect spot for our annual fundraiser. The venue is beautiful! The staff was professional, helpful and patient with our nonstop questions. You feel like you are in your own oasis when at Mercury Hall, yet you are just minutes from downtown Austin. Great location and a beautiful venue that has a charming and inviting feel that is hard to find elsewhere. - Michelle Sandquist, Operations and Event Manager, Gazelle Foundation

Manos de Cristo has proudly hosted our fall event at Mercury Hall for several years. Our guests love the accessibility, the historic venue and the indoor/outdoor atmosphere. Mercury Hall is an entertainment gem in South Austin. - Diane Riehs, Manos de Cristo

Mercury Hall has been the perfect venue for Hospice Austin's annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon for the past five years. The interior space is open and warm with plenty of natural light so that everyone feels welcome right away. The exterior space is equally beautiful and lends itself to gathering on the patio or under the shade of the big oak trees for relaxing conversations. The staff could not be more accommodating and helpful. Mercury Hall is a wonderful choice if you're hosting an event in Austin! - Rev. Nancy McCranie, Hospice Austin

I loved this venue. We had a year end celebration for Pug Rescue Austin at this place. There is plenty of parking and a nice open area for the tables - Kristina

This place is beautiful. McCallum Choir had their banquet there. Everybody loved this place. - Blanca

Love this venue. The staff are always so sweet and professional! Very pretty and if rain comes, there is a beautiful chapel space insight to move your event indoors. - Heather

Excellent venue, excellent service. Courtney was very helpful and made our experience easy and pleasant.  Great place for any type of event! - Denise

Made famous in Richard Linklater's WAKING LIFE, this meeting space is a fantastic choice for events, from parties to fundraisers, weddings...(book far in advance). Picked up and moved from NW Austin, this restored chapel is now a quiet and calming home to Austin-insiders who are raising money for their non-profits, theatre groups and charities. Inside the chapel, I get an enormous sense of AWESOME CHI. It's worth stopping into regardless of a need to use it..just to get a feel for the inside..odd and refreshing. Lots of ample parking close to this beautiful setting smack dab in the middle of Austin. A definite landmark. - Larry
