Mercantile Hall is an industrial event venue located in downtown Burlington, Wisconsin that right in the heart of the city’s historic downtown. The space itself brings an urban feel with a “small town love” vibe that's undeniably cool.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples may host up to 230 people inside Mercantile Hall, and its design features numerous experience details for your guests to ensure they are wowed at every turn. And Mercantile Hall just opened its adjacent outdoor patio "The Urb Garden" which is an option that allows you to host an outdoor ceremony and/or cocktail receptions as well.
Mercantile Hall has an industrial 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. Your guests can enjoy the wedding venue year round and if opting for something with an outdoor option, you'll love the urban/city feel of The Urb Garden which has the most incredible wrought iron entrance gates & copper gas lantern (what an entrance you'll make coming down the aisle - wow!), 60' gorgeous cedar pergola, fantastic sound system, and to top it off, a vintage camper trailer bar that has been lovingly restored and will be a fun way to treat your guests to a welcome beverage or cocktails.
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 almost destroyed 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.

Mercantile Hall was our venue for our rehearsal dinner. What a blessing in disguise after our original venue closed without warning!Sent on 05/16/2018
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.Sent on 05/22/2018

"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.
