Located in the heart of downtown, Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater is a $40 million, multipurpose music and events venue that also serves as a hip location for groups seeking a true taste of the Live Music Capital of the World. Opened in February 2011, the state-of-the-art, 2,700-seat theater hosts 100 concerts per year and is the new home of Austin City Limits, the country’s longest-running PBS music series formerly broadcast from the University of Texas campus. Adjacent to the W Austin Hotel, the three-level ACL offers a variety of sophisticated and intimate event spaces, including a concert floor, mezzanine and balcony seating, two lounge galleries adorned wall-to-wall with iconic rock ‘n’ roll photography, 12 bars, a VIP partner suite, five box suites, a music porch and outdoor balconies. Most spaces are flexible and can be set up banquet, theater or reception-style.
Since its debut two years ago, ACL has hosted about 150 private events, including meetings, parties, galas and product launches, says Michaelyne Escobar, ACL private event sales manager and senior event producer. “ACL Live at The Moody Theater allows clients to give their guests a fine-tuned Austin experience,” Escobar says. “The diversity of the space allows for all kinds of events, including meetings and keynotes. The ability to live-stream and the luxury of in-house production also allows for turnkey solutions for our clients.”
