Something Old Meets Something New
Eighteen-Eighteen is a family owned and operated venue located in the Smetana Community, across the highway from Texas A&M’s Rellis campus. The building was originally built by the late J.O. Siegert in the 1980’s to house the Precinct four Volunteer Fire Department. After about a decade, the Fire Department’s increasing capacity called for relocation, leaving the building uninhabited. As time passed, the building sat vacant, leaving owners Jason and Charissa Siegert excited to take the next step in the history of the venue. “We wanted to bring it back to life!” Charissa Siegert said, “Our dream took a lot of time, hard work, and dedication but was 100% worth it.”
The Siegerts hoped to combine the best of both old and new, which can be seen throughout the décor and overall style of the venue. “One of the walls in the building is made from reclaimed wood salvaged from my grandparents’ home.” Jason Siegert said, “It felt like a perfect way to honor both my family and the history of the space.”
The venue features indoor and outdoor space for up to 100 guests, a beautiful bar for entertaining, a variety of chairs and tables to accommodate guests, and smart technology throughout. To book 1818 Venue for your next event, visit 1818venue.com today!
