This venue is a historic train station moved to East Austin in the 1980’s. The stained glass windows were brought in from a railroad station from Wabash, Indiana and the brass lamps originated from the 1939 Pullman station. The room was divided by a beautiful ticket counter with a wire mesh window and an old money drawer from the I.C. station built in 1917. Outside of the building, sits a railroad crossing signal and a decommissioned rail line covered by an antique awning. Vintage light fixtures were sprinkled around the exterior of the building, and a beautiful historical gem took shape. The venue is next door to the thriving East Austin complex which include Austin Bouldering Project, Daily Greens, Austin Eastciders, Friends and Allies Brewery, Groundfloor Theatre, and Dimension Gallery. It is nestled alongside the warehouse, sitting in a beautiful field as if it were a time capsule. Owner Moya Khabele conceived the idea to breathe life back in to the old relic. She joined forces with the developer to convert the unique train station into a public event venue to be shared with all of Austin. In the summer of 2016, the venue opened to the public, as an event venue, a one of a kind space to host parties, receptions, fundraisers, weddings, and community events. The historic Pine Street Station was moved from downtown onto the site in July of 2016 and opened in January of 2018 for additional event space. All photos from this listing are from Azulox Visuals.

Incredible space! We hosted a holiday Casino Night for a business party. Everyone had a great time. The interior decor and exterior grounds were the perfect combination.
We had a wonderful wedding at Springdale Station! It’s the perfect place for those planning on doing a DIY or semi-DIY event. The station is beautiful and unique with both indoor and outdoor space to utilize. Moya, our host was super accommodating and quickly responded to any questions we had. It was easy to schedule time with her when I needed to bring in someone to view the space before the wedding. I highly recommend the Springdale Station for an event at anytime but, especially during the evening. The garden lights above the old train tracks were amazing!
We loved this space. We booked it for an evening professional networking event. We combined use of the space and the adjoining courtyard with the friends and allies brewery space. Lots of charm, moya was helpful and responsive. Only drawback might be only a shared bathroom in the station but by working with the brewery, they offer clean and spacious facilities. Thanks to all.
