The anticipation is killing us! The ARCHER Austin Hotel’s grand opening is just around the corner! This luxury boutique hotel at Domain Northside will open its doors late summer and we can’t wait to step foot into this beautiful hotel. The 171-room, eight-story property has an abundance of local touches infused within the décor. Texas chic – a designer dress paired with the perfect cowboy boots – was the inspiration to make ARCHER Austin luxurious, yet casual. In tandem with the hotel opening comes Second Bar + Kitchen, ARCHER’s signature restaurant from La Corsha Hospitality, under the direction of acclaimed Chef David Bull, who will also oversee the food and beverage for events. ARCHER Austin will boast over 6,600 square feet of indoor meeting space, with ceilings reaching a height of 17 feet, 2,400 square feet of pre-function space and another nearly 2,500 square feet of outdoor space on the second floor terrace, with a pool deck of 5,000 square feet, bringing its total event space to over 16,500 square feet. Dramatic sliding glass walls between the function space and outdoors lead to alfresco seating and a fire pit off of the pre-function area. The culinary talent of Chef David Bull will flow into the impressive event space, offering dinner seating for up to 350 people with a personalized menu. For larger groups the hotel’s indoor and outdoor areas combined can accommodate 850-plus guests. An on-site wedding specialist is available to make sure your event runs seamlessly.
ARCHER loves for guests to socialize and mingle; the design details and touches in the public spaces have a linger-a-bit longer way about them. The lobby has an inviting fireplace and impressive 30-foot mural that is complimented by the broken-face, smooth-top, hand-laid patio limestone underfoot. A stone-clad grand staircase with floating glass handrails leads guests to the second floor event and meeting space. A jaw-dropping, 18-foot custom chandelier marries iron and crystals, setting the stage for the rustic luxury that is ARCHER Austin. Then there is the pool. An unpredictable circle with a star-shaped form on the bottom, accompanied by the grandest fire feature on property – a fireplace measuring 18 feet with a firebox that occupies more than half of it, adjacent to the seasonal pool bar. Soft seating areas, fabric-laden cabanas with day beds, tables and lighting, make for a wonderful semi-private alfresco space to enjoy the sweeping views of Domain Northside.
To celebrate its debut ARCHER Austin has unveiled a grand opening special of 20% off best available rates. Nightly stays start from $249 and come down to $199 with the opening promotion. This is valid on all reservations booked before September 26, 2016 for travel through February 28, 2017 on the hotel’s website. For more details please visit ARCHER Austin online.
