Mercury Hall is one of the most unique party venues you will be able to find in the Austin area. It is a historic structure that was built in 1904 in Mercury, Texas as a church and was moved to its current South Austin location in 1997. Located just minutes from downtown Austin on a secluded hilltop, our hall is the ideal venue option for making your next party or event unique.
Mercury Hall is a flexible venue with ample parking and friendly staff. We try to keep things in the South Austin mindset; laid-back.
The inside of the party hall is over 2,237 square feet of space and is equipped to handle any and all occasions:
Seminars & Workshops
....and much more
The indoor space can seat up to 150 comfortably banquet style, 175 theatre style, 75 classroom style, and 50 for a U-shape conversation. How you choose to set up this party venue is entirely up to you. It has a flexible layout that makes it very easy to work with for any party or event. In addition to being flexible, the interior of the party hall has a unique rustic beauty that you won’t find at any of the other party venues in the Austin area. The hall has its original wood floors, stained glass windows that light the interior during the day, chandeliers that light it at night, and the white shiplap walls make for a beautiful backdrop to any event.
Unlike other halls for rent, Mercury Hall packages give you exclusive use of the venue and grounds for your party; including two dressing rooms and the prep kitchen. This allows you to be able to have your event indoors or outdoors in our gardens. The landscape is designed to reflect the Hill Country feel of the classic structure with lush garden walls for privacy, bamboo, and many magnificent live oaks and post oak trees gracing the four acres around the hall. For evening parties, clients may add our Festoon Lighting Package to the Rock Garden Courtyard. This lighting package is four parallel strands of dimmable festoon lights, running north to south over the courtyard. It is quite dreamy!
Food and Beverage
We allow you to choose from a broad selection of caterers we work with often. We trust what they do, how they take care of our clients and our space. Please view our Preferred Catering List. That said, if you would like to work with a caterer not on our preferred list, please contact us for approval. There are several steps to ensure approval. Mercury Hall allows clients to purchase and bring in alcoholic beverages, but we do require TABC certified bartenders to serve all alcoholic beverages. Bartenders must also be covered under at least a one million dollar liability insurance policy.
Tables and Chairs
Mercury Hall has table and chair packages available, if needed for your event. These packages are available for both inside the hall and outside in the gardens. We also work with several Austin based rental companies, if you are looking for something a little more unique than what our packages offer. Please contact us for a list of these vendors.
We invite you to let us be your party place. We would be happy to speak with you about your event and what your specific needs are. Come visit Mercury Hall and take a look for yourself!
