Brazos Hall

204 East 4th Street Austin, TX 78701

Brazos Hall is a turn-of-the-century warehouse at the corner of 4th and Brazos. With its restored long-leaf pine floors, brick walls and wood rafters, Brazos Hall is a venue unlike any other in the heart of downtown. In addition to the historic main room, Brazos Hall offers a rooftop deck with breathtaking downtown views. Brazos Hall is Austin at its finest.

At The Party

Local Grub

Attention foodies – if you crave local eats over wedge salads and rubbery chicken, climb aboard! We’re bringing you some of the cities best bites from the likes of Juliet Italian Kitchen, Kemuri Tatsuya, The Peached Tortilla, Chicon and topped off with Launderette for dessert!


Local Sips

Some of the best and brightest booze brands will be on hand so you can sample Austin’s best all while toasting our parks! We’ll be slinging drinks from locals like Austin Cocktails, Austin Eastciders and Zilker Brewing. Raise your glasses to all things Austin, and show your park love!


Local Revelry

NEW this year we’ve added a stellar live experience to our already fantastic silent auction, with packages to pique any interest. And it wouldn’t be a party in the live music capital of the world without the jams – DJ Gatsby will spin ACL mixes in the main room and on the roof deck.
