Nestled on a secluded hilltop, just minutes from downtown Austin, Mercury Hall offers an idyllic setting for a variety of occasions. The historic structure was built in 1904 in Mercury, Texas, and was moved to its current location in 1997. The hall plays host to weddings, special events, funraisers and performances. Here at Mercury Hall, we try to keep things in the South Austin mindset; laidback. Mercury allows you to choose from a broad selection of caterers and allows you to bring in your own alcohol. The hall accommodates parties up to around 300 people, if you utilize both the hall and the patio. If you are only using the hall (mainly during hot & cold months) then 120-150 guests will fit comfortably. Please visit our website at www.mercuryhall.com for additional information or email Courtney, the manager, at info@mercuryhall.com. Read less

We had our wedding at Mercury Hall in November 2015. The venue is absolutely beautiful indoors and outdoors and didn't require much decorating on our end because it's so charming as is. We rented a tent which allowed us to utilize the whole property--ceremony on the lawn, cocktail hour indoor/outdoor, dinner under the tent, and dancing inside the hall. Courtney and Rachelle were easy to get in touch with and to work with. All our vendors were used to working with Mercury Hall, so everything moved seamlessly on our wedding day. I would absolutely recommend Mercury Hall--it's beautiful, reasonably priced, and overall a perfect location for an Austin wedding.

Best venue I could have asked for. So reasonably priced and such a wonderful Austin spot. Our wedding coordinator, Rachelle, did a FANTASTIC job. She let us make all the calls but did a fantastic job planning the design and all the small details I wouldn’t have remembered or thought of. She was there at every moment I needed her, and I couldn’t have been happier with how beautiful the combination of indoor/outdoor looked!

This place speaks for itself. It is so beautiful and unique. We had an unexpected surprise and were forced to move the wedding up 5 months which cut out a big chunk of our decor. However, with minimal decorations and almost no flowers our wedding was still beautiful and classic. We received compliments from almost every guest on the simplicity and beauty of the ceremony and reception. Little did they know it was all the place and very little work on our end!
The management was accommodating and very helpful from beginning to end. They worked with us on moving up the wedding without any additional fees or problems. The day of the wedding they were very helpful and in the end of the night even assisted in a little cleaning. I love this place and will continue to recommend it!

Mercury Hall is a lovely little oasis in the middle of South Austin. Ours was a small (70 guests) afternoon, mid-week wedding and Mercury Hall was the perfect setting for both the ceremony and reception. We chose MH because it met all our criteria: reasonably priced, flexible options for rain or shine, convenient location, and charm. Their list of preferred vendors is varied enough to provide for all types of weddings. (Ours was a non-religious, non-traditional, multi generation, mixed vegan/non-vegan affair!) Kudos also to how seamlessly their preferred vendors work with/within Mercury Hall being so familiar with the space and guidelines.

We booked our wedding ceremony and reception at Mercury Hall and could not have been happier with the venue. Being two architects, my wife and I really appreciated the scale and character of the main building - it’s a 100+ year old chapel that was moved from Mercury, Texas! The interior space and the grounds were so simple and beautiful that we didn’t feel like it was necessary to add too much decoration. The staff that helped us book the venue was friendly and easy to communicate with, as was their groundskeeper on the day of our event.

A couple things to be aware of: 1) if your event has any outdoor component then you must rent lights (expensive) or bring your own (hassle to set up) - there are no standard outdoor lights set up for you; 2) our reception got pretty warm and it was difficult to find someone to help cool the building down.

Overall, we were blown away by this venue and highly recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a unique, charming space for a special event.

Mercury Hall was not my first choice of venues. In fact, I didn't even have them on my list until my first choice fell through.

However, I'm so glad we ended up there. Mercury Hall is gorgeous! It's a really beautiful space for a smaller, more intimate wedding. Mercury Hall is fairly inexpensive, especially if you have a weekday wedding, which was great for us because we were on such a tight budget. They also have chairs and tables that you can rent from them for a pretty good price. Booking their venue also includes using the outdoor space for rehearsal prior to the wedding date. If you're on a budget like we were, you can let Mercury Hall's innate beauty be your decoration. We didn't feel like it needed very much extra.

Courtney and her team were very responsive, helpful, and extremely patient with me while I vacillated between choices. They were always willing to send me information, even if it was multiple times. They were wonderfully accommodating when it rained on our rehearsal day. They came and opened the indoor space for us with very little notice. It didn't end up raining on our wedding day, but it had rained all week. We weren't able to use the big grassy area for the ceremony but the gravel area is just as beautiful.

I can't wait to see our wedding photos and I hope we get to attend another function at Mercury Hall in the future!

We absolutely loved Mercury Hall. It was the perfect venue for us in every way and we wouldn't have selected another venue if our lives depended on it! That being said, there are definite "quirks" to the process of this venue! Being extremely DIY friendly comes with its own set of stipulations for what you can and cannot hang, tack, etc, however asking the venue manager Courtney before choosing your DIYs would be best, because then you don't end up with a decoration they cannot accommodate! Visiting the site is easy peasy, but ending up there at the same time as an on-site manager is challenging! Email, calling, and dropping in their drop box will be your best friend for communication, as finding them in person is challenging! They don't have a huge functioning office, and for our rehearsal (which was scheduled months ahead of time) and several other site visits, no one was on site and the venue was simply left unlocked or wasn't. That was challenging (especially with our rehearsal time!) because we didn't have access to the inside, until we found an unlocked door. Hmm!

We also had sort of a last-minute tussle with the mowing of the lawn, as both our sets of parents were pretty appalled at the Friday rehearsal that the lawn was very long and unruly for our Sunday wedding. It didn't bother us hugely, but it would be a nice consideration. They told us "no" on Saturday but ended up mowing last minute on Sunday morning, due to pushiness from our coordinator. It was a little stressful!

That being said, Courtney was wonderful and very helpful with answering our questions, responding to emails, and forwarding us along to other vendors. Thank you, Mercury Hall, for being our dream venue and for falling directly in our budget!
P.s. We didn't have a strong rain plan, except to just flip the inside space last minute day-of if it decided to rain ... I would recommend a tent or potentially a more concrete rain plan. We got lucky, but it also could have gone awry!
