Whiskey 101 at Native Hostel


Whiskey 101 at Native Hostel


We are teaming up with Nine Banded Whiskey and Native Hostels to turn Native’s upstairs Romper Room into an interactive + intimate whiskey experience!

This introductory shindig will feature three types of whiskey for our guests to taste — followed by a creative cocktail 101 where guests will get to create their own cocktails based on the customized curriculum.

As always, we will be providing the best bar tools for guests to use during the workshop, as well as light bites to nibble on throughout the evening. All of our guests will leave with a foundation in whiskeys, as well as recipes and a list of bar tools needed in order to keep the party going at home!

This event is open to 21 and up only and all guests must drink responsibly! Tickets are $60/person. Our last several workshops have sold out, so head on over to the ticket link below and reserve your spot now!

**Tickets are non-transferable. No refunds will be issued unless the event is cancelled.**

About Nine Banded Whiskey:
Nine Banded Whiskey is a creative blend of three year old, oak barrel aged whiskey distilled with the purest water out of Texas Hill Country. They gather the perfect mixture of whiskeys and smoothed it out with Texas’ finest limestone filtered water. It’s got one hell of a kick sitting at 90 proof, but it is as clean as can be. With a subtle bite and a smooth finish, they are the whiskey for Austin, Texas.

About Native Hostels:
Native is for the seekers. The curious ones, filled with youthful wanderlust. Explorers who know that possessions are fleeting, but experiences last a lifetime. This upscale hostel is conveniently located off I-35, 2 miles from both Lady Bird Lake and the stately marble/granite Texas State Capitol building. Featuring exposed beams or brick accent walls, the hip mixed-gender and female-only dorms with an industrial vibe offer free Wi-Fi, lockers, and shared bathrooms with marble countertops. Private rooms with en suite facilities, including a loft suite sleeping up to 6, are also available. Amenities consist of a trendy coffee shop/bar, and a restaurant with terrace dining. Communal areas include a kitchenette, and living spaces with plush sofas.



Tuesdays Together - Care Canisters

November is the Rising Tide Society's Philanthropy Month! We were happy to host the Austin Chapter at the studio.


With donations from the members, we worked with neighbor Mitscoots to provide 100 Care Canisters filled with snacks, toiletries and other necessities for the homeless community.

It always warms the heart to give back during the holiday season.  I hope that we do more of this in the new year! Happy holidays everyone!



Eastside Map by Emma Gundlach

Since moving to East Austin almost a year ago, we've fallen madly in love.  To celebrate the upcoming EAST Studio Tour and our first anniversary, we commissioned the incredibly talented Emma Gundlach to create a map of our favorite spots. 

How beautiful is this?  We're so in love that we are providing complimentary hard copies to all of our amazing studio rental clients. 

The master plan is to take you guys on an Eastside tour while I cruise the streets on Black Beauty (my fixie). Stay tuned, my friends because we're headed for a yummy ride!



Mavenly + Co Recap

We were thrilled to host a Mavenly + Co. Masterclass, a two-day career workshop for creative women entrepreneurs. 

The traveling workshop is led by two girl bosses from ATX and focuses on setting women up for success as they are either transition or navigate through different stages of their lives and/or careers.

Mavenly + Co developed a curriculum in collaboration with a team of higher education and positive psychology professionals to help us ladies thrive professional environments.

It all went down August 27-28 with a happy hour the night before at Eastside neighbor, Kitty Cohen's. 

On the second day, we were lucky enough to enjoy a Q&A panel with some of Austin's most impressive women entrepreneurs, including Jane Ko (A Taste of Koko), Mica May (May Designs), Natalie Davis (Canoe) and Danielle Sobel (Juice Society). They dished on their backgrounds and how they created lives and careers with purpose.

I highly recommend digging deeper into the Mavenly and Co. platform. It offers resources and a community long after the workshop is over. We are always on the go, so it necessary and therapeutic to check in with your peers to not only seek advice, but to celebrate each other.
