About Elevate Event
When you combine the soul of New Orleans, LA and the heart of Austin, TX, you get a company like Elevate Event. Our mission is to provide an exceptional experience for customers, co-workers, and event attendees. Always striving to absorb and react, Elevate Event will leave a mark on the business, entertainment and events industry.
As active members of the Pflugerville and North Austin communities for over 20 years, the owners wanted to provide a place to gather and entertain that is flexible for events from corporate meetings to fashion shows, live music to family reunions, and wedding showers to 60th anniversary parties. Elevate Event Live is the perfect space that can be customized for any unique or typical event. We are not afraid of getting a little weird either!
We want to listen to your needs to help you create an exceptional experience for your family, friends or co-workers.
