Take a Dip
Dive into summer at this hot Austin hotel's happening pool
With its private cabanas, lounge chairs, tanning shelves, fireplace, and two outdoor showers for rinsing off after a quick dip, the WET Deck at W Austin has everything you'll need to survive the Texas summer.
But you'll also find a sizzling poolside lineup that includes live music, excellent people-watching, and even the chance to work on your bikini bod. Plan how you'll be spending sunrise to sunset at the WET Deck below.
Detox Retox Repeat
No pain, no champagne, right? BYOM (bring your own mat) and get your sweat on all season long every Sunday, starting with Mod Fitness in June. Classes are complimentary for hotel guests.
After your workout, stick around for this Sunday Funday favorite. Reserve a cabana so you have somewhere comfy to land when it's time to chill out and crowd-watch. Special guests will join Bird Peterson throughout the summer, and the entry cost is $20 (free for hotel guests).
Summer Fridays are a lot cooler when you're hanging out at the pool. Buy a day pass for $10 or wait until happy hour at 5 pm, when access to the WET Deck becomes complimentary Monday through Friday (except during holiday weekends). From noon to sunset, DJ Kurupt and Buck Rodgers are spinning tunes.
Live poolside performances take Thursday nights to a new level. Music fans ages 21 and up can jam out to DJ Kurupt (May 17), Shy Beast (5/24), Swimming with Bears (June 21), Ruby & The Reckless (7/26), and other performers that have yet to be announced. Stay tuned to W Austin's website and social media for the big reveals.
