  • When searching for wedding venues, my husband and made plans to tour some locations to help us decide where we wanted to go (pre-pandemic). Once we arrived, walked around, and talked to Julianna (wedding planning binder in hand) we just loved the place. It was our first stop and nothing beat it! Settling on a date, and understanding the plethora of rentals included (tables and chairs for 150+ guests) just made the decision that much easier! Juliana was so warm and kind, and worked seamlessly with our coordinator (Mockingbird Lane Events-truly another amazing wedding must-have!) When we requested an additional half-hour for our catering staff, the transaction was quick and reasonable. Getting married during a global pandemic is sure to cause some headaches, but there was never any issues with communication with Juliana and ensuring we moved forward. My father even contacted her over a year ahead of time to help with research for hotels since majority of our guests were from out o... Read more

  • We had an outside ceremony and reception at the Allan House in October 2020. They have a beautiful courtyard and amenities. This historic house is so beautiful in the heart of downtown Austin! Their staff is lovely to work with. I would definitely recommend the Allan House to everyone for a wedding or any other event

  • I love this place. It’s a total Southern Brides dream. It’s like a country/French country side like venue in the middle of the city. It was in our opinion reasonably priced compared to a lot of venues. Love all the trees and lights. Very naturally beautiful! Had bridal and grooms suites. Stunning at night. Great spot for if you have a smaller wedding and need a rain option to go indoors. We had Specs and HEB deliver alcohol and mixers straight to the venue. Everyone pretty much Uber’s to the venue or there’s some street parking.

  • We researched a lot of venues and decided the allan house would be the first one we visit. We went on a tour then came back the next day for an open house, we did not visit anywhere else because we were in love. The allan house has a perfect location in the middle of austin and makes you feel like you are in the hill country. they have a lovely entrance space that open up into an huge open porch then descends into a grand court yard. The lighting seems to be perfect at all times. the courtyard has large treas that bow over it adding life in contrast to the limestone paving. The staff are friendly and work with you as timelines and the weather changes. I am so lucky to have had our wedding here and know you will feel the same once you visit.

  • Allan House was a perfect whimsically romantic venue for our January wedding. It was definitely not your hotel banquet room or rustic barn. What really attracted us to Allan House was the location in downtown Austin as well as the complimentary heated tent during the winter months (Dec - Feb). We had a lot of out of town guests and decided that a wedding right after the holidays would be the most ideal for everyone. A lot of the other venues did not offer the heated tent and it was perfect for an evening winter wedding. We also, loved the twinkly lights and majestic tree in the middle of the tent. Juliana was very communicative and easy to work with throughout the process. Allan House is truly a dream and really made our wedding day special. We will post more pictures in a few weeks.

  • The Allan House was the first and only venue I looked at! I fell in love with the location, trees, and character. I’m so happy I chose to get married there! Communication with Juliana was very easy, she always responded in a timely manner and answered all my questions! The only downside to the venue is that it doesn’t include parking. However, I still highly recommend!

  • The Allan House is a gorgeous and historic venue in Austin. Julianna was responsive and helpful during the entire planning process. We used quite a few of their recommended vendors and were very impressed by how flawlessly they worked together to help make our wedding wishes a reality. The winter tent was beautiful and allowed us to not worry about the weather on our wedding day. The tent provided an intimate atmosphere for the ceremony and reception and was easy to decorate. I would HIGHLY recommend the Allan House to anyone looking for a memorable wedding or event venue.

  • The Allan House was the perfect location for the outdoor twinkly-light wedding I have always dreamed of. My husband and I both grew up in Illinois, so we had mostly out-of-town guests coming to Austin for our wedding. We looked at many venues in the hill country that we loved, but when it came down to it, we wanted our guests to experience the city of Austin that we loved, and having the ceremony at the Allan House did just that. Juliana was great always quick to respond to the questions and requests we threw at her! I loved our courtyard twinkly-light wedding - it was better than my dreams :)

  • I got married at the Allan House in downtown Austin on September 2019. The venue is an outdoor venue so you will need to have a rain plan. However, we rented a tent through Marquee Events, who has a custom tent plan for the Allan House. It is so beautiful with the tent, lighting, and chandeliers! However, BEWARE that if you implement the rain plan, any other weddings on the same weekend must agree to the tent. This could be good because you could split the costs or bad if the other couples have bad communication. I had about 130 guests and it did not feel crowded. The venue does require a space flip, but our catering company took care of it. My wedding pictures look so beautiful, especially the huge tree in the courtyard. I was able to rent a parking lot next to the venue for a great price. It had 50 spots. It was perfect because I got married on a Friday and did not want my guests to pay for street parking. It was very easy to communicate with Juliana (the manager). Note: ... Read more

  • My Daughter had her wedding at the Allan House, located in the heart of Austin in April 2019. We had about 90 people and the Allan House and grounds perfectly accommodated us for the ceremony, cocktails & appetizers, dinner and dancing. It was beautiful! They provide all the tables and chairs for the evening activities. It was also very accessible for our guests with a parking lot (rented extra) right by the venue. Additionally, they worked very well with all our other vendors. Juliana, the manager, was informative, responsive and always eager to help. I would look forward to having another event at the Allan House.

  • The Allan House is an incredible venue. Juliana was awesome to work with. She answered all of our emails quickly and was there for us from start to finish. The venue provides so much for the price and it was the smartest decision we made! We had the perfect weather and the backyard looked like a dream for our wedding. We picked all of our vendors through the preferred vendors list and they all were incredible and everything went smoothly the day of. I wish we could relive that night again!

  • The Allan House was the first and only venue we looked at. We knew immediately that this was where we wanted to hold our wedding. Juliana was an absolute pleasure to work with and helped us to make our wedding dreams come true. With the tent being included in the winter package we were able to deck out the Allan House and bring our vision to life! We would recommend the venue to anyone looking to have a magical wedding in the trees!

  • I would give The Allan House 4.5 stars. It is a beautiful venue in downtown Austin. Parking is easy for a smaller wedding. The outdoor courtyard and beautiful overhanging tree is beautiful for a wedding. There is a bridal suite on the main floor, and a groom's suite in the basement. 1/4 star knocked off because the bridal suite was not the best for makeup application. I think most brides get ready in another location, but since all of my bridesmaids were traveling into town I wanted us all in the same place and not have to lug our things across town. The bridal suite consists of a bathroom, couch/seating area and what looks to be a dining area near the front. The HMUA found that the only room with good light was the front dining room, which made it so that guests could see us all getting ready upon entering. The price does include many rentals of which we used bistro tables for cocktail hour, and the round tables and matching chairs for the ceremony and reception. It is a popular ... Read more

    Hi Samantha! We loved working with you on your wedding, and your pictures are stunning! Thank you so much for choosing The Allan House. Your insight on the bridal suite rooms & your experience having your hair and make up done on our property is invaluable, so thank you for including this. As you mentioned, most of our clients do not choose to have their hair and make up done on-site, and if they do they are typically finished hours before guests are set to arrive, so this isn't something we have run into previously. However it is good information to have, and we will be sure to share that knowledge with future clients who have similar timelines to yours. I am sorry to see you've knocked off 1/4 of a star for the price of the venue. When you booked your original August date with us, you were offered a 50% discount because of the quick turnaround before your event & everything happening with the pandemic. When you postponed your wedding to November, we did still honor that 50% discount, however the price increase reflected your move from an off-peak August date to a peak-season November date. I am sorry that you felt like we were quick to add additional charges, as we try to always be transparent with our pricing. If you have additional comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly. Sincerely, Juliana Ross [email protected]

  • Don't get me wrong, The Allan House is gorgeous! That is why it gets two stars. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and both my and my partners job loss because of it, we had to cancel our wedding. Several of our guests have also lost their jobs, and would not be able attend the wedding also. However, even through an international pandemic, we are not able to get a refund of our deposit from the venue (even though we cancelled several months ahead of the wedding). It would be nice for a business to have some grace through such a hard time, much like our other vendors, but The Allan House does not. I would not recommend this venue.

    Thank you so much for letting us know how you feel. We are truly sorry for the hardships you and your partner have been facing surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, and we're sorry that you won't be hosting your wedding at our venue this October. I can only hope your feedback helps us improve our communication with clients about the policies in our contract.  This pandemic has been extremely difficult for so many individuals and small businesses alike, but we have been striving to serve our clients as best we can as we navigate this difficult time together. We have been facilitating postponements for many of our events, and I would be happy to discuss that option with you, if you choose to reschedule your wedding. Please reach out to me directly (call 512-478-8653 or email [email protected]) if this could be a possible solution.  Respectfully, Juliana Ross
