The Refinery’s event venue blossomed from the need for an intimate, care free and creative event space in the heart of downtown Austin. Our building is rich in history yet designed with minimalist and modern elements that provide a refreshing setting for events of all kind.

White brick, sleek marble and copper finishings make for timeless entertaining during any an all of life’s reasons to celebrate. An abundance of natural light reveals a simple, clean and inspiring atmosphere for productive workshops, conferences and presentations while also serving as the perfect backdrop for intimate social gatherings, rehearsal dinners or corporate happy hours. The venue can house up to 200 guests and is paired with tables, chairs, plush lounge seating, and everything else you’d need to bring your vision to life.
