The area near Palm Park and the Palm School harkens back to Austin's original city plan. The neighborhood near the corner of Sabine and 5th Street was home to Austin legend O.Henry. Waller Creek flowed by on its way to the Colorado River, with minnows and turtles abundant under towering oak trees.
In 1936 a cabinet maker's shop was built overlooking the creek. Now the home of the Palm Door, over the past 70 years it has housed businesses such as the Austin Theatrical Supply Company and the City Grill Restaurant. Restored in 2008, it maintains the feel of Austin's history and culture with comfort and simple elegance.
Available for the significant events of your lifetime, Palm Door is the perfect location for weddings, family reunions, parties, business socializing and more.

Now completely remodeled, Palm Door provides the perfect ambience for weddings and parties. The main room features rustic wood floors and beams, with a 14-foot vaulted ceiling. Warehouse-style lighting and ceiling fans add to the room’s character.
In order to allow our guests to create the perfect atmosphere for their events, we have a liberal décor policy. We allow small nails in the walls and beams and encourage guests to drape fabric, hang art, or otherwise transform the space.
You and your guests will appreciate the easy flow between the interior rooms and exterior spaces at Palm Door.
