Watch the action unfold in the spirit of a literary salon, and sip a mixed libation from our thoughtfully curated list. Peruse our collection of coffee table books and games in the bright and airy Tequila Bar. Lounge on a plush seat and enjoy the warmth of a shared fireplace with the neighboring Screened Porch—all the beauty and benefits of a classic Southern screened porch, but with air conditioning. Oversized windows (perfect for people-watching), a projector wall and intimate seating set the stage for both business and pleasure.

Adjacent to the Tequila Bar, the Records Room is our homage to Austin’s love of music with more than 8,000 vinyl records. Browse Texan classics, worldwide sensations and hip new releases. The warmth of the fireplace makes for a cozy afternoon and an electric evening scene. With state-of-the-art acoustics by Steven Durr, a vintage McIntosh installation and a separate bar, the Secret Bar provides an intimate environment for you to live it up. Our Living Room is your living room. You won’t want to miss a thing. And you won’t have to.
