About Us

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.

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.

  • 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!
