The Domain is getting a new addition of an Austin classic. After 25 years in Austin, local boutique Adelante will open an Airstream trailer retail space at North Austin’s popular shopping outpost in September. While the bulk of the store’s offerings remain at the Central Austin brick and mortar location, the pared-down selection at the Airstream is a return to the shop’s roots. The Airstream was originally posted up on South Congress Ave., but will continue to showcase Austin-inspired styles from the new location. Stop by to check out the new gameday wardrobe selection or to simply stock up on burnt orange clothing and other southwest-inspired styles.

The Hyatt Regency Austin, a mainstay in downtown Austin, has recently undergone $70 million of renovations, including updates to their restaurant, Marker 10. With a new focus on local ingredients and an updated menu including made-to-order sushi, the Hyatt Regency’s cocktail patio brings a fresh option to downtown al fresco dining. A newly extended happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. provides ample opportunity to try out their new $9 craft beer flight for two, or a local Texas cheese board. All of this, of course, still includes the Hyatt’s sought-after views of Lady Bird Lake.
Caroline & Upstairs at Caroline
109 East 7th Street, Austin, TX, 78701
Situated in the heart of the buzzing start-up scene, on the corner of Congress and Seventh St., is a dining, hospitality, and co-working experience combined into one welcoming establishment. The Westin’s affiliate concept of the combined Aloft Austin and Element Austin brings its own eccentric flair to downtown, providing upscale service without the pretentious vibe. At the base of the hotel is the restaurant Caroline, which also comes equipped with its own coffeehouse and bakery as well. Caroline’s new American cuisine is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to guests and the general public. With healthy options like golden beet carpaccio and the quinoa chili bowl, you can fill up without feeling weighed down. One story above Caroline is the funky Upstairs at Caroline lounge—it's soon to be your new favorite happy hour go-to. Kick back on the couches inside, or play a friendly game of corn hole on the outside patio—either way, we suggest taking part in these activities with a cocktail in hand (try the “pop rock & drop it,” topped off with pop rocks). Not drinking or dining? No problem. Caroline and Upstairs at Caroline is happy to host casual meet-ups, business meetings, and remote workers or freelancers.
