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

What an intimate, quaint, quirky, magical venue! If you love Austin this is the perfect spot tucked right of of 1st street. The first time I stepped into the lot I was sold! And the price wasn't that bad either! Beautiful vintage stained glass windows, amazingly impressive trees and open areas for all to enjoy. Even a bamboo forest that was great for pictures! So simple yet very diverse. Courtney with Mercury Hall was awesome through the entire process! The only down side I would say is there is only one dressing room and it's not super big but I couldn't have cared less! Great venue!

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!

Mercury Hall was a BEAUTIFUL venue for our wedding. When we saw rain in the forecast, I was worried we would not be able to utilize the gorgeous outdoor area for the ceremony, but luckily the cold front blew in the following day. We had hand full of bird cages hanging from the branches over our ceremony area, but the decor was almost unnecessary given the natural beauty of the outdoors. The inside is gorgeous with the stained glass windows and chandelier, so you don't feel the need to fill space with stuff to distract from the canvas. Since I planned to DIY a good amount of decor, I looked for a venue where less is more. We used different shades of linens in the same color family because the venue is pretty white in general, and it turned out amazing. Our final turnout was 64 people although we were expecting 70 and I thought the space was perfect for that amount of people to have plenty of wiggle room, although I've heard of fitting at least 50 more people there. All in all, it was a great space for our intimate wedding.

Courtney of Mercury Hall was a pleasure to work with! The venue itself was perfect. Austin chic, Rustin, romantic and intimate. We're so happy we found this venue and used it to celebrate our life long commitment! The in house manager was great too, what a joy you all have been!
The inhouse lighting was superb! Crystal chandelier, outside string lighting and inside up lighting was great.

Thank you all again!

I fell in love with Mercury Hall and our wedding was beautiful!!! The most perfect day...even though it rained. If you haven't been to this venue yet, check it out. Stunning even w/o decor. You can decorate or not, have it outside or inside and the place is so charming. Courtney is great to work with also!!! Wouldn't have changed anything about our wedding there!

Mercury Hall is so beautiful!!! It feels like the hill country, but it is located downtown! The outdoor lawn is just amazing, I wish the weather had been nicer on my wedding day, so we could have enjoyed the lawn a bit more. The indoor venue is gorgeous! The stained glass windows are absolutely beautiful and bring so much life to the venue. I love the white walls, because you can decorate with any color to tie it in to your event.
Courtney, the manager, was easy to work with, although sometimes a little scatter brained; it helped that my mom was so well organized. With that said, don't judge Mercury Hall on the manager - the venue is all yours the day of, so you are able to make the event very personal. The bridal room is small, just a head's up, but you can make it work.
I would highly recommend Mercury Hall!!! The venue is so beautiful!
