December 17 - December 21
Everything’s bigger in Texas, and that includes Christmas. Geraldine’s brings us TexMas: a limited duration holiday pop-up with a snow machine, appearances by a southern Santa, and poolside igloos, obviously. Igloos come equipped with record players, board games, and TexMas decor. Recline in your own igloo lounge with a Ho Ho Horchata or a Santa’s Got Yolks in hand whilst stacking your own s’mores. The installation kicks off on the 17th with photo ops and music from DJ Bird Peterson, continues with a holiday market, and then culminates in the return of Motown Christmas with the one and only Tje Austin.
W Secret Bar
December 12 - December 25
We’ve always been a little creeped out by the “he sees you when you’re sleeping” thing, but we’ll roll with it for seasonal cocktails and spiked hot chocolate. The W Austin wants to know if you’re on Santa’s side or firmly in the Krampus camp. Sit and take sweet snaps with Santa or catch Krampus creepin’ around and have some cleverly named cocktails and snacks from the menu in the secret bar. It might be decorated as Santa’s workshop, but there are some questionable Krampus antics about.
