On WeddingWire since 2016
Mercantile Hall is an urban-chic wedding venue located in the historic heart of Burlington, WI, and can accommodate up to 220 guests. With 15′ ceilings, original brick walls, and honey-toned wood floors, Mercantile Hall’s main event space offers a blank-slate backdrop that’s suitable for every style – from dreamy and romantic, to bold and edgy. After all, your wedding celebration should be as unique as your one-of-a-kind love!
The Urb Garden
Nestled next to Mercantile Hall, The Urb Garden offers the ideal setting for outdoor ceremonies, photo ops, and unique guest experiences. A custom-made iron garden gate, 60’ cedar pergola, and cream-colored brick walls adorned with lush vines create an “urban garden” vibe. Choose between two ceremony set-ups – make a grand entrance through the gates for a moment that will leave everyone breathless, or use the gate and its lantern-adorned arch as a stunning backdrop for your nuptials. Similar to the venue’s blank-slate interior, this heavenly space offers the versatility you need to bring your unique vision to life.
Your guests are sure to love their experience in The Urb Garden. Enjoy cocktail hour with Suesanna, our vintage camper bar, yard games under the pergola after dinner, or a cozy firepit and s’more experience after sunset.

Our building was constructed before the end of the 19th century, serving as a mercantile (a retailer), a department store, and a furniture store throughout the years. A massive 5-alarm fire swept through the building in 2014, but there was an incredible discovery made in the cleanup - the original hardwood floors had survived, protected beneath a fireproof polyester covering. This and the stunning original brick walls inspired a new chapter in the story of the building, turning it into an authentically unique setting for special events.
