About CANVAS at The Refiney

Canvas at The Refinery blossomed out of a need for an intimate, care free & creative event space in the heart of downtown Austin. Our building is rich in history and carries a modern, clean aesthetic carefully designed to host all the celebrations.

White brick, sleek copper & marble make for timeless entertaining. Built around authentic connection, Canvas was designed for intimate rehearsal dinners, weddings, creative conferences & speaker events, cocktail parties and all of life's reasons to celebrate.
