We’d love to dust off our cowboy boots and get a little line dance going at this gem of a party house, found on the outskirts of the infamous Austin Texas.
Don’t be fooled, everything in Texas is bigger. This beautiful glass walled ballroom can hold your 300 guests, or create the perfect intimate affair for 50. Featuring local and Organic comfort faire and spectacular gardens, the Barr Mansion & Artisan ballroom takes the shabby out of shabby chic.
