Looking for a new—and, frankly—incredible place to host a social event or meeting? Check out Palazzo Lavaca in Austin. It is one of the city’s oldest buildings and stands at the corner of 16th St. and Lavaca.
Giselle Koy, an Austin native and UT alum, purchased the building eight years ago. “I was so moved by this building, a true homage to Austin’s amazing past,” says Koy. “I wanted to keep that great Austin vibe and add in some of my design inspirations like the famous Palazzo Fortuny in Venice and Julian Schnabel's Palazzo in New York City.”
