The W Austin turns one and throws you a month-long birthday party
At the same time Austin stalwart The Driskill is celebrating its landmark 125th anniversary, the youngest child of the downtown hospitality alliance is celebrating its first birthday — the W Hotel.
Though the glitzy global institution's Austin outpost is always buzzing, the W has taken its fair share of hard hits during its first year of life (i.e., falling glass windows). For that, General Manager Drew McQuade wants to thank the Austin community for its support and open up the month-long birthday celebration to one and all, beginning tomorrow.
Tomorrow, Dec. 9, the popular Living Room will feature a cutely priced $1.29 (get it?) cocktail menu from 3 - 5 p.m. At 6 p.m., McQuade will address guests (again, the public is invited) with a toast.
The big party kicks off at 9 p.m. in the Living Room featuring DJ Mike Swing. Judging by how much time and energy was spent in designing the specially sound engineered room, it’s sure to be an evening well spent if you’re at all musically inclined.
Other special offers playing on the 12/9 birth-date between now and Dec. 30 include $129 combination of a mini mani/pedi/facial or a one-hour 29 minute massage for $129 at AWAY SPA, a Celebrate Nibbles Menu for $12.99 and a $129 prix fixe menu for two at TRACE.
