About the Location
Austin is awesome. Where the heart of rock & roll beats, keep company with bands like Spoon, Roky Erikson, Okkervil River and Ghostland Observatory in a scene hotter than the Texas heat. And W Austin is right in the middle of it, fronting the stylish, sophisticated set in the citys most happening neighborhood, the 2ND Street District. Whats that sound? Why, you dont have to go too far to find out—youre next door to Austin City Limits, the legendary home to some of the most storied rock performances.

But theres a lot more playing around here than just music. The 2ND Street District energy sends good vibrations around the clock—immerse in the rhythm of more than 50 specialty boutiques, dining destinations and nightlife hot spots in the country, almost all locally owned.

Whether youre kayaking, rowing, running, biking or strolling, you cant stop the music—the lake also hosts the Austin City Limits festival, one of the major music events of the year, as well as the Austin Reggae Festival, Spamarama, and many more open-air concerts.
