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
  • "Experience Opportunities" for your guests

  • 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.

    Cannot say enough great things!!

    We had the most amazing experience with Mercantile Hall from start to finish, even through the pandemic. I do not have enough good things to say about Meghan, our coordinator from Merc. She was so quick to respond to our many, many questions, handled all of our details and requests with ease, and went above and beyond our expectations on the wedding day. If anyone is looking for a venue that has it all, Mercantile Hall is the hidden gem you are searching for!

    Most Perfect Wedding Venue & Experience

    Getting married at Mercantile Hall was an absolute dream come true. The second I stepped through Mercantile Hall's doors (and met our coordinator Stephanie) I knew I was right at home! The venue was absolutely stunning, and Stephanie was the sweetest, most calming coordinator a bride could ask for! In just 3 months, Stephanie helped us plan our entire wedding from start to finish; we could not have pulled it off without her! 
    On wedding day, we moved our ceremony inside due to weather, and yet again, Stephanie and the Mercantile Team handled the transition effortlessly. Our indoor ceremony was so personal and intimate; our guests couldn't believe that wasn't the plan all along! The entire night went better than we could have ever imagined. I cannot thank Mercantile Hall enough for giving us the most perfect wedding day!

    Mercantile Hall's reply:
