• Private Events at Sengelmann Hall

Sengelmann Hall is a restored 1890's Texas dance hall, complete with a restaurant, saloon and biergarten, located in historic downtown Schulenburg, TX. We're surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of Fayette County, an hour and a half from Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. The fully restored saloon and restaurant features the original plank flooring, decorative stenciling, pressed tin ceilings and carved marble pillars (with bullet holes from brawls during the 1800s!). The grand mahogany bar was painstakingly rebuilt from original photographs. Until it closed in the 1940s, Sengelmann Hall was known as the Two Brothers Saloon, and it stood as a cultural hub in downtown Schulenburg. Residents and visitors would gather here for drinks, games, socializing and, of course, plenty of dancing!
