With four very distinctive, very chic social areas, the Living Room at W Austin is like having four bars in one fab location. Nowhere else in downtown Austin will you find such a versatile, vibrant scene. The Tequila Bar offers an extensive range of labels, enjoyed while paging through one of the many coffee table books or playing a board game by the fireplace. Step next door to the Screened Porch to kick back in a laid-back, southern-style setting with views of downtown Austin through the immense windows. Of course, any self-respecting gin joint in the Live Music Capital of the World is going to have a knockout music collection, and the Records Room soundtracks get-togethers of all manner with over 8,000 vinyl records spanning everything from country classics to international crazes and brand-new music by up-and-comers. Cutting-edge acoustics by Steven Durr, a retro McIntosh installation and a clubby, cozy vibe will make you want to keep the Secret Bar all to yourself.

A fully stocked bar and enticing snacks make The Living Room perfect for stirring your evening to life before heading out to explore the Austin bar scene. Or you can make a night of it while hopping from room to room to room to room before starting all over and doing it again. One thing’s for certain – no two visits to The Living Room will ever be the same!

Secret Bar

Secret Bar

Let's get intimate. Have a seat. Sip on a cocktail. Enjoy the glow. You're in the Secret Bar (sometimes known to our guests as our "Red Room"... you can see why). While the rest of the Living Room's spaces open in the morning, the Secret Bar opens at 4:30pm every evening. Once you're in, you can enjoy cocktails from its separate, fully stocked bar and indulge in snacks from our bar menu. Secret Bar is also the home to our beautiful, vintage McIntosh Sound System.

Screened Porch

All the beauty and benefits of a classic Southern screened porch...with the added bonus of A/C. Luxuriate in oversized windows perfect for people-watching, views of the lush patio at TRACE Restaurant, and an intimate shared fireplace. Bring your laptop in and lounge while you catch up on emails, or grab a seat at night to indulge in tantalizing treats and signature libations. Looking for some entertainment? We often offer free screenings of the day's hottest sporting events and awards ceremonies on our giant projector wall. Sit back and enjoy.
