Also producing the record is the Hotel Magdalena, housed on Austin’s trendy South Congress strip. Portion of the Bunkhouse Group, the identical people powering the Hotel Havana downtown, the lodge opened in Oct. Motivated by nearby Barton Springs, the Magdalena evokes 1970’s lake dwelling vibes — albeit the coolest lake property you’ve got ever stepped foot in. 

With interconnecting outside hallways, landscaping motivated by Texas flora and fauna, a swanky pool, and an expertly curated sundries store (a Bunkhouse trademark), the Hotel Magdalena provides a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of South Congress.
