There's a lot to love about Austin — tacos and music come immediately to mind — but being in love in Austin is something special. Couples who are looking to marry their appreciation for the Capital City with their love of a good time, all while marrying their partner, should have one venue specifically in mind: South Congress Hotel.
The locally owned and operated boutique hotel, with its 83 rooms and suites, sits right in the heart of Austin's iconic South Congress shopping, dining, and entertainment district. Imagine saying "I do" on the pool deck overlooking South Congress Avenue, in the hotel's lush courtyard, or in an intimate ceremony in the Milton Suite. No matter your style, there's a spot here to suit it.
Here are a few reasons why you should keep the hotel in mind not just for your ceremony, but for all aspects of your celebration (and yes, tacos are involved).
Bachelor and bachelorette parties
Whether you're looking to spend a weekend being fêted by your attendants or simply planning a small bridal brunch, South Congress Hotel has you covered. Reserve the private dining room with its own patio at Central Standard or rent out the Milton or Monroe suites for an intimate gathering. Fuel up for a night out in Austin by first sipping a few hibiscus margaritas by the pool, or head to Watertrade to sample rare Japanese whiskey and specially concocted cocktails.
Got a slideshow of memories planned, or want to surprise your guests with a choreographed dance number? The AV team is ready to back you up. They'll also make sure that every guest can hear all the emotions in the speeches (even though your dad will swear later that he wasn't crying, that was just something caught in his throat).
South Congress Hotel offers versatile settings that can accommodate 10-200 guests, and you can create the atmosphere of your dreams with the blank-canvas spaces. Pop-up a cocktail lounge in the event space, dance under the stars to a brass band, or indulge in late-night tasty treats. The culinary team is ready to swoop in with everything from an extravagant plated dinner to street tacos, while executive pastry chef Lindsay Flagg and her award-winning team can create mini dessert displays all the way up to a multi-tiered wedding cake. To really wow your guests, book the hotel's artisanal ice cream truck, Stephen F. Frostin'.
