Pinktastic Swim Club Opens in Downtown Austin


Think pink! Dive into a picture perfect swim club at Downright Austin in Downtown Austin. The historic pool turned social club invites guests to swim, dine and dance the night away. Don’t let the name fool you. This non-members-only social club is open to all!

What To Expect At Swim Club Austin

The club comes to us from Austin restaurateur Travis Tober of Nickel City, Murray’s Tavern and Old Pal. He’s created an afforable menu that features items like chicarrones, ceviche, wings, pizzas, sammies, tacos, and more. Warm up prices start at $5 with pizzas ranging from $12 to $15 and three tacos offered for $13.

But it’s the drinks that add to the instagrammable experience of the club. We tried the Aperol Slush, Nitro Cold Plunge, and the Sharks in the Water. Made with haiku vodka, roku gin, blue curacao, house piña colada mix, and Giffard framboise float, the best part is the shark gummy wedged into a disco ball straw. Frozens, classics, and other concoctions are offered for $15.

Here’s a video showing you what the pool experience is really like!
