Hotel Emma is an architecturally and historically unique San Antonio wedding venue with endless amenities. The building was originally Pearl’s Brewhouse, built in 1894 and designed by Chicago architect August Maritzen. Pearl was the only San Antonio brewery to survive Prohibition, in large part due to Emma Koehler’s business choices. After closing down in 2001, Silver Ventures bought it and updated the area to create Pearl, a vibrant neighborhood full of shops and restaurants. Hotel Emma is the perfect wedding venue for couples seeking a space with character and casual sophistication.
