About the venue

Centrally located in the Sunset Valley community, just 10 minutes from downtown Austin, Brodie Homestead is the ideal location for a variety of occasions.

THE SPACE

A HISTORIC barn with modern elegance

The unbelievable 38-foot wooden gambrel roof ceiling, adorned with six stunning crystal chandeliers, creates a spectacular setting. White draping adds a touch of softness to the barn, and natural elements of rich barn wood and white limestone combine to provide an impressive interior.

Brodie Homestead is an all-weather and all-season venue with immense indoor space

The venue is designed to accommodate various event sizes. While the barn is large enough to hold a grand gala or reception, it can also be broken up into smaller areas with the use of gorgeous white draping. It is perfect for intimate celebrations or multi-functional events.

FAQs

  • WHAT IS REQUIRED TO RESERVE A DATE?

    We require a signed contract, as well as 50% of your date’s rental fee. The second half of your rental fee will be due 90 days prior to your event date, along with a $1,000 refundable security deposit. If you choose to pay the rental fee in full upon booking, a 5% discount is applied.
  • HOW LATE CAN MY EVENT GO AT BRODIE HOMESTEAD?

    Our event end time and music cut off time for events on any night of the week is midnight.
  • CAN I BRING IN MY OWN ALCOHOL?

    Yes! Most of our clients choose to purchase and bring in their own alcohol. You are allowed to do so, as long as a TABC licensed and insured bartender ($1 million minimum) serves all alcohol to your guests.
  • WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS OF MY CATERER?

    We require that you select one of the nineteen (19) full service caterers or three (3) full service staffing companies (along with the local restaurant or food truck of your choice) off of our Preferred Vendors list. This will ensure that your event runs smoothly and that your service staff is familiar with our venue. The staff from either your caterer or staffing company will handle the food and beverage service set up, 'flip' of the venue during cocktail hour (if applicable), execution of meal service, and the clean up of your event.
  • WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS OF MY BARTENDER?

    Your bartender must be TABC certified and work under an entity that carries a liability insurance policy of at least one million dollars. We recommend hiring bartenders from one of our Preferred caterers or event staffing companies, as they all meet our requirements.
  • DO YOU REQUIRE I HIRE A COORDINATOR?

    While we do not require that you hire a professional coordinator, we highly recommend it! If you choose to not hire a coordinator, you are required to designate a friend or family member as the main point of contact for the venue manager and all other vendors involved in your event. Your contact person is in charge of making sure everything is cleaned and removed from the grounds at the conclusion of the event.
  • DO YOU ALLOW DOGS?

    Yes! Dogs are like family members and are part of many ceremonies at Brodie Homestead. We allow dogs at the venue for the ceremony and pictures, but ask that they are taken home/away from the venue during the reception.
  • WHAT ARE THE DECOR RESTRICTIONS?

    We encourage our clients to get creative with their decor, but it must be installed in a way that does not damage the property. Nails, tacks, staples and glue are not allowed on the walls, and tape is not allowed on the wood floors. We do allow candles, as long as they are enclosed in a holder. Dripless wax candles are highly recommended. Toss items like glitter, confetti and fake snow are not allowed.
  • DO YOU WORK WITH LGBTQ COUPLES?

    YES! We love all kinds of love, and everyone is welcome at our venue.
  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEDDING Planner AND THE VENUE MANAGER/ON-SITE MANAGER?

    In a nutshell, the venue manager is responsible for overseeing the set-up of in-house rental items, and logistics as it relates directly to the venue. He/she is on-site for your entire rental time to serve as a point of contact for any venue related emergencies or issues that may arise throughout the event, and to manage in-house systems such as the AC/heater and lighting, and to ensure all vendors and guests are following our venue rules. An outside wedding planner will coordinate and manage ALL logistics and design details with your entire wedding vendor team, families and guests.
