Mercantile Hall maintains an industrial chic style with exposed brick walls and warm honey-toned hardwood floors that serves as the perfect backdrop for events with a vintage, artsy, rustic, industrial, or modern vibe. So whether it's a ceremony + reception, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner - Mercantile Hall & The Urb Garden might just be that perfect place for you.
Mercantile Hall has in-house affordable bar packages and DJ services, and also works with many vendors in the surrounding area, all of which are available for contact on their website.
The venue also offers additional services, including:
Mercantile Hall has morphed from a turn of the century mall to a department store, and most recently a furniture store that was ravaged by a massive 5-alarm fire in 2014. In cleaning the destruction the fire had caused, the most amazing discovery was found - the original hardwood floors hiding beneath a fireproof polyester covering. The historical beauty of the brick walls and warm honey-toned wood floors inspired Wendy Lynch and Stephanie Heft to create an event space for magical events.

Venue was gorgeous! Staff was amazing! Everything went smoothly! It was pricey but if you can afford it then you should do it!

Mercantile Hall was our venue for our rehearsal dinner. What a blessing in disguise after our original venue closed without warning!
There were so many special touches - as you enter there is a huge "WOW Wall" featuring names of bride and groom and logo. As you move down the hall there is a "Gallery Wall" with personal 8x10 photos, then onto a "Menu Scroll." Bar is amazing as well as the elegant rustic hall itself. So many choices and ways to make your evening special and personal. Ashlee was wonderful to work with!

I found the Mercantile before it was even finished, about 4 months before I even became engaged, and fell head over heels in love with the space. The moment I reached out, Stephanie and the rest of the wonderful ladies were on top of everything and so kind. I am in love with the place, everything about it made my wedding everything I could have ever dreamed of.

"Urban Feel. Small Town Love." It says it all right there. The fact that Burlington has produced such an incredible space that feels so different and unique is wonderful. As each venue in the area offers something so widely different there is truly nothing similar to Mercantile Hall. We are honored to be one of their preferred vendors and can not wait to photograph in this inspiring space.
