About

The Riley Building is a modern, industrial, and fully customizable wedding venue located in Austin, Texas. We specialize in weddings (seated: ceremony & dinner) up to 125 guests - however, we can accommodate up to 200-250 for a cocktail-style reception (eg mostly standing room with some seating sprinkled in) as an alternative as well (eg if you were to get married offsite just before celebrating your reception at The Riley).

Facilities and Capacity

This establishment offers a chic and industrial environment for hosts to make use of. The interior is divided into separate areas, creating unique social spaces across its layout. Large windows frame views of city life, elevating the urban appeal of the venue. Beams and exposed piping create a modern aesthetic, complemented by concrete floors and a wide, open floor plan. This venue presents the ideal canvas for a custom-created event, allowing clients to curate a look that perfectly suits their theme.

Services Offered

The Riley has a number of rentals available to clients. These include tables, chairs, linens, and more. The facility comes with overhead LED lights that can be dimmed to clients’ preferences. Surround sound speakers are also present on both levels of the building. Outside, there is another set of LED lights that may be set to different colors based on the couples’ themes. In order to ensure that the music played at an occasion maintains the most ideal quality, The Riley has installed soundboards on the ceiling of the main hall. Audiovisual equipment can be provided on request and a door host must be present at the time of the event. Should soon-to-be-weds wish to have a valet service, this may be coordinated with the venue. Custom branding may be accommodated. For further information about venue rentals, packages, and service bundles, potential clients are encouraged to reach out to the event director with their inquiries.

    Most Perfect Venue

    We got married at The Riley Building, both the ceremony and reception, and it was the best choice we made for our wedding!

    The design of the event space is fantastic, and very stylish. The two-floor layout was perfect for separating the ceremony, dinner, and dancing as the night progressed, allowing for easy transitions for each phase.

    Its high-tech A/V equipment, as well as the top floor's retractable ceiling, make it a dream to use that can cater to any event or situation.

    But most of all, the best part of The Riley Building was working with their event director, Carly. Her professionalism and communication was first-rate, as was her flexibility, attention to detail, and patience with us and our requests.

    I can't recommend them enough. This venue is the ideal place to hold any event!

    Beautiful Venue

    This venue is stunning and our wedding was beautiful. Planning here was a little tricky due to the downtown area but Carley was super helpful and informative.
