Austin’s Coolest New Hotel?

Walls Made of Belts, Poolside Gourmet Eats and Special Turndown Service Make This Spot Stand Out

BY // 05.04.16

Archer Austin opens later this summer inside The Domain, Austin’s 300-acre mixed-use hot spot. The boutique hotel will pack 171 rooms with rustic-chic ambiance — wall coverings fashioned from old leather belts and bathrooms porcelain-tiled to resemble weathered wood.

Chef David Bull will man the Second Bar + Kitchen restaurant for fine dining, but it’s his poolside menu that catches our eye, with savory apps such as salmon-belly ceviche, chicken-fried olives and black truffle pommes frites.

And talk about sweet dreams: Turndown treats include a rotating array of locally sourced goodies such as chocolate crunch bark from Crave Austin Chocolate, Bakery Dulcinea’s white chocolate tart cherry popcorn, and Fat Belly Manchego-chili pretzels. Archer Austin, 3121 Palm Way, Austin, 512.836.5700.
