About Mercantile Hall

Mercantile Hall is an industrial venue located in downtown Burlington, Wisconsin that sits 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 can host up to 230 guests inside Mercantile Hall, and also the adjacent outdoor space "The Urb Garden" for cocktail hour and ceremonies. Mercantile Hall prides itself on being non-traditional, and has clever design features and numerous experience elements for your guests to enjoy and to enure they are wowed at every turn.

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.

Services Offered
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.

Other Services
The venue also offers additional services, including:

  • Personalized event coordination packages taking care of set-up and/or tear-down for you and your family
  • Discount at Bon Bon Belle Bridal Boutique (Wedding Wire's Couples Choice Winner Nationally for Customer Service)
  • Outdoor patio with sound system
  • Lighting packages
  • Exhibition kitchen

  • Free internet / wifi
  • Trash disposal
  • Climate controlled space year-round
  • Suit/tuxedo rentals within walking distance
  • Recommendations for local caterers, photographers, bakeries, tux/suit rentals, and florists

History
Mercantile Hall was transformed from a turn of the century mall to a department store, and most recently a furniture store that was nearly 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 this unique event space for magical events.

    I was married at the Urb Garden, with a reception following inside Mercantile Hall, in September 2019. It was a beautiful wedding, my friends and family were shocked at how cute Burlington is, and it was incredibly less expensive than a similar type wedding in Chicago would have been. Stephanie was my day-of coordinator - but she did so much more than day-of help. She was there along the way, helping me coordinate and answer the many many questions all of my other vendors were shooting me. I felt like she was my "bestie" the day of the wedding because she was my hype team, my support, and made sure I stayed hydrated (with wine). I strongly recommend Mercantile Hall for your wedding if you want something very unique but also straightforward to plan and execute.

    Beautiful Venue with a great team to work with!

    What can I say about the Mercantile Hall except our wedding there was a dream come true! My husband and I got engaged in January 2019 and wanted to get married that upcoming summer, which meant that we had 7 short months to plan our wedding. Luckily the Urb garden had just opened up, so we were able to have our ceremony outside! The Urb garden is AMAZING!! We worked with Stephanie as our wedding coordinator and she was awesome! She took all of my crazy pinterest ideas and ensured that they happen. She did everything that she could to make sure that our day was perfect.

    "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.
