SAN ANTONIO – The Pearl Stable building is set to become a 1,000-seat “world-class” music venue next spring, the Pearl announced on Tuesday.

In announcing “the next chapter in San Antonio’s iconic music story,” officials said the venue, dubbed Stable Hall, will also have an accompanying outdoor biergarten.

Both the music venue and biergarten are slated to open in the spring of 2023.

The goal is for Stable Hall to become a “marquee music destination and showcase for national, regional and local talent,” the release states. In doing so, the Pearl picked notable music buyer Jay Sweet to handle the bookings and WoodHouse to operate the venue.

The Pearl said it will attract a variety of genres like pop, indie, Latin, blues and R&B.

“Stable Hall is San Antonio’s newest oldest music venue. This venue will capture the authenticity of historic dance halls in the country and usher the next chapter of music in San Antonio by honoring the roots of our region and showcasing the best in live music,” Elizabeth Fauerso, CEO of Pearl Commercial, said in the release.

“... With a commitment to celebrating the joy of live music while honoring musicians and their craft, Stable Hall will be a place for us to gather in the shared joy of music.”

According to the release, Stable Hall will include a “Jewel Box Stage” in front of floor seating and a curved balcony.

The venue will have wooden floors, hand-painted murals, a restored wood ceiling, and a green room for performers, in addition to bars and pre-show areas.

San Antonio and Austin-based architects Clayton Korte and Austin-based interior design firm Joel Mozersky Design are heading the redesign.

For the biergarten, it will be open for people before the shows or on any other occasion, the release states. Other than craft beer, it will also serve “traditional Texan and German Hill Country fare” like kolaches, bratwurst and pretzels.
