Take in the Best View of Downtown Austin

Azul, located at The Westin Austin Downtown on East 5th Street, is the ideal place to spend sun-drenched days lounging in the pool and escaping the Austin heat, or chilling with friends as this space transforms into a lounge in the evenings. Hotel guests and visitors alike are welcome to enjoy Travel Agent Central's Coolest Hotel Pool.

As the tallest hotel rooftop bar and lounge in Austin, Azul boasts spectacular views across the cityscape with transparent panels surrounding the deck. Our modern-designed deck is sleek and chic and will make you feel right at home as you relax with your crew, lounging by the pool with a drink in hand. When the sun goes down, our fire pits turn on, and Azul transforms from a pool and bar to a chic lounge. Experience why Eater rates us as Austin's #1 best outdoor bar.

Experience Downtown's Main Entertainment District

Just steps away from The Westin Austin Downtown is Austin’s most renowned 6th Street Entertainment District. This array of bars, clubs, music venues, and shops is conveniently located within walking distance of the hotel. During most weekend evenings, holidays, and special events, the nine blocks on East 6th between Lavaca and Interstate 35, are closed to auto traffic, forming a pedestrian zone. This walkable area offers an easy and exciting way to experience the different venues that line the street.

SXSW®

The South by Southwest® Conferences & Festivals offer the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.

Zilker Botanical Garden

Take a leisurely stroll through wildflowers, butterflies, koi ponds, and even a recreated local dinosaur habitat within Zilker Botanical Garden’s 26 acres, often called “the jewel in the heart of Austin.”

Congress Avenue Bridge Bats

In the spirit of keeping things weird, we should mention that March-November is bat season here in Austin. Watching the largest urban colony of Mexican free-tailed bats in North America emerge from beneath the bridge at dusk is incredible, uniquely Austin, and a must-see event!

Brew Pubs & Beer Gardens

The best bars in Austin are just around the corner. Visit Easy Tiger, Waller Creek Pub House, The Gingerman or Scholz Garten during your stay to enjoy the weather and experience Austin.

For Foodies
