The Texas heat is known to cause a few mirages. We assure you, however, that South Congress Hotel is just as real on the inside as it is on the out. Concrete ceilings and wooden floors are connected by exposed brick, creating rooms with a relaxing minimalist vibe.

If the night gets the best of you, feed the dog that bit you with some breakfast and a Mezcal Mule from Café No Sé.

If your experience is like ours, your time will be in a hard-fought battle between the room and the pool — believe us, the pool wins every time. With skyline views of downtown and poolside cocktails, the only illusion is the thought of leaving.

With an easy walk to Stag Provisions for Men, you’ll easily be able to pick up some new threads for the night ahead. We recommend a ride downtown, where just over the Colorado River, live music meets the likes of Texas BBQ and ice-cold Shiner Bocks. If the night gets the best of you, feed the dog that bit you with some breakfast and a Mezcal Mule from Café No Sé.

In a city that thrives off music legends, a bar scene like no other, and these addicting things called breakfast tacos, a trendy place to unwind never felt so important. Whether you’re in town for SXSW, ACL, or just to see what this whole 6th Street thing is all about, you can be assured that South Congress Hotel is ready for you. Rest easy, y’all.
