Your Event Vision, Come To Life
We love to make your event visions come to life, using our space as a beautiful backdrop. Our Venue Managers will collaborate with you to identify your specific event goals, recommend vendors and partners, and make sure you are set up for success before and during your event.
Beautifully Customizable Spaces
From cocktail events to networking, to sit down dinners and everything in between, our spaces are flexible to whatever your dream event needs. We offer audio/visual support, beautifully designed custom-made furniture, and loads of on-site amenities.
Indoor & Outdoor Festivities Welcome
Both of our venues offer access to indoor and outdoor spaces during your event. From majestic oak trees to intimate gardens, your guests can relax and recharge in our natural spaces. We offer the perfect mix of indoor/outdoor event space.
Gather venues are intentionally curated and designed to support a dynamic range of community gatherings. Our hospitality-driven team is committed to your success. Whether it’s your fundraiser, wedding, conference, workshop, party or premiere, we love co-creating an extraordinary event everyone will remember.

How Does Parking Work?
For our Gather Monroe event space, we customize nearby parking solutions based on the size and needs of your event. North Lamar has ample parking for guests on site.
Can We Play Music?
All Gather Venues allow music inside only, per the City of Austin Sound Ordinance. Sound needs to be at a level where no more than 70 decibels can be heard from the street. In Austin, all DJs generally remain well within the sound limit and most bands can play under the limit as well.
What Audio/Video Equipment Is Provided?
All Gather Venues have a projector, speakers, microphone and sound board available for use. We do not have additional A/V equipment on site. You are welcome to bring additional equipment to use as part of your event.
How Does Setup And Breakdown Work?
The venue will be set up with our in-house furniture and accessories throughout the space. You can utilize any and all furniture and accessories we have on site for your event and can re-arrange however you would like, but the space would have to be re-set at the end of the event. Gather Venues staff is available to assist for an additional fee.
Can We Bring In Our Own Decorations?
Of course! You can customize the space to your needs, providing that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. We ask that you do not hang anything that will puncture the wall. You are free to use all existing decor that is available on the day of the event, as long as it is reset to its original location at the end of your event.
Can I Add Extra Time To My Rental Agreement?
Additional time on Saturday and Sunday can be added for $150 per hour, provided the entire event does not continue past 10:00pm. For reference, a full day rental is 10 hours, and a half day rental is 5 hours.
Can My Event Go Past Midnight?
- At Gather Monroe, all events must end at 10:00pm and guests must vacate the property by 11:00 p.m.
- At Gather N. Lamar, events may go past 10:00pm and ending times vary based on the event.
