The Allan House




The Allan House is a charming historic Victorian nuilt built in the heart of Downtown Austin, Texas in 1883. Embellished with native Texas blossoms and century-old oak trees, it is ideally suited for weddings, receptions, corporate functions and charitable events.

Centrally located just three blocks west of the Texas State Capitol building, our Victorian estate and courtyard offers you and your guests indoor and outdoor entertaining areas. Our Austin, Texas wedding venue provides an intimate environment, yet an area spacious enough to hold most event sizes. Using only the inside, we can accommodate wedding ceremonies of up to 65 guests and seated dinners of 50, depending on your seating style. Using the courtyard and garden area, as most brides and grooms choose to do, we can accommodate ceremonies and seated dinners for up to 225 guests.
