Born of a vision to create a welcoming experience to serve as the backdrop for memorable moments, The Eldorado boasts tall ceilings, restored wood floors, and a spacious area. From the botanical wallpaper to the colorful artwork, from local gallery The Commerce Gallery, to the full custom catering menus, The Eldorado captures eclectic energy unlike any other event space in the area.

Centered in the heart of downtown Lockhart, The Eldorado is perfectly situated for guests looking to host a variety of private corporate and social events, along with every different kind of wedding event, such as bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, intimate receptions and more. With an in-house event planner and catering abilities, The Eldorado can create a personalized gathering for any get-together. Nationally renowned chef Casey Wilcox can create a custom menu around the event theme that is either served by a waitstaff or arranged family-style, making meals even more unique and special. With in-house pastry chef Kelly Dugan, the custom menu can also include decadent house-made pastries and sweet treats. The Eldorado also holds a liquor license to provide specialty cocktails and offers three bar service options to party guests.
