Live at Seaholm Austin Restaurant Week Rare Weddings
Live at Seaholm

The decommissioned Seaholm Power Plant has been virtually out of reach for all Austinites since its construction in the 1950’s. For years, the Art Deco building has held a great deal of mystery to passersby due to its looming presence and restricted access. But things changed in October as Rare was given access to Seaholm to host the first large scale public events at the power plant. From ACL afterparty with Broken Social Scene to a New Year’s Eve bash with Flosstradamus, we’re bringing the party to the plant. Visit the Live at Seaholm website for upcoming events.
