At the street level, neighborhood-inspired materials define an indoor-outdoor bar that spills out to the streetscape activating the sidewalk and encouraging guests to mingle with local residents.

Fourteen unique hotel rooms are organized around a central core of stacking porches invoking the social spirit of the bungalow.

At each level, these gathering spaces buffer the transition from public realm to private room. Each vividly colored room is distinctly balanced with quiet custom millwork and furniture, built by local artisans.

From bedroom to bar, this boutique hotel invites guests to experience and enrich the neighborhood fabric of East Austin.
