Social Life and Community at The Austonian
The Austonian community and social scene offer things to do and people to see – all within a condo tower that is essentially a vertical neighborhood in the heart of downtown Austin. The many social activities and spaces in The Austonian, coupled with the city's active lifestyle, provide a strong and vibrant place for residents to interact and enjoy the best of Austin.
Events at The Austonian often take on the inspiration of the surrounding city. During the 2012 South by Southwest music, film and interactive festival, The Austonian hosted an HOA party to complement the surrounding music-centric events. A party in the 10th-floor Billiard and Game room of The Austonian included live music, Rudy's BBQ, and beer and wine pairings.
With more than 40,000 square feet of private amenities for residents and their guests, the many entertaining spaces within The Austonian offer places for residents to intermingle and entertain. Party spaces, grand dining areas, a billiard and game room, The Austonian Club, guest suites, the fitness center, the dog park, the pool, and other spaces provide residents with luxuries traditionally associated with suburban homes in the midst of the vibrancy of downtown Austin.
Knowing that dogs are often part of the family, The Austonian offers a desirable and convenient home for pets and their owners. Four-legged friends are known and greeted around the building. Play dates at the 10th floor dog park, outings to Lady Bird Lake, visits to dog-friendly Taverna and trips to Mellow Johnny's for treats contribute to the pet-friendly neighborhood vibe.
Austin is a social, friendly city with eateries and events for people to meet, gather and get to know one another. Residents are within steps of their morning coffee, paper and a friendly hello from Caffé Medici's baristas. Regulars can often be found at Berry Austin or Congress. The annual Austin City Limits music festival at Zilker Park invites residents out to the Great Lawn to enjoy their favorite artists, local bites and beautiful weather. The weekly SFC Farmers' Market at Republic Square Park serves as a neighborhood grocery enhanced with live music and familiar friends.
The Austonian not only provides an ideal place to entertain family and friends, but also a relaxed and natural way to meet new people. Relationships thrive and grow in this vertical neighborhood in the hub of the city.
