Austin’s own MML Hospitality—the team behind institutions like Jeffrey’s, Elizabeth Street Café, and Clark’s Oyster Bar—is our exclusive partner across our four Proper dining concepts. While you’re here, we invite you to Indulge in Israeli & Turkish-inspired cuisine at Peacock Mediterranean Grill; enjoy coastal Mexican fare, ceviches, and sizzling fajitas at poolside La Piscina; sip classic cocktails and spin a record at the living room lounge The Quill Room; or tuck into the elegance of Goldie’s Sunken Bar, our intimate 30-seat lounge exclusively open to Proper guests.
Sharing foods and flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean — think North Africa, Greece, Israel, and Lebanon — is the worldly inspiration behind The Peacock. Mezze and wood-grilled fare is colorful and loosely plated, healthy and wholesome. Underneath twinkling rope fixtures hung in various heights, everything is fresh and fragrant — even the natural wines, and light spirits mixed with lots of fresh herbs, fruits and citrus.
Elevated above the city with commanding sunset views, but still connected to it, is our poolside Mexican restaurant and refreshing raw bar. We invite you to sit by the engaging open kitchen and watch tortillas griddling on the open comal. Here, antojitos are made to order, and platters are piled high with fragrant, wood-grilled fare. Serious but not taking itself too seriously, poolside drinks include playful cocktails, frozen margaritas, and a spotlight on native tequilas and mezcals.
Imagine a little old-fashioned back room, with whispers of a Turkish bar… Translated through Austin’s cool, laid-back vibe. Its mix of pink marble tables and warm copper is illuminated by the glow of hand-crocheted covers on suspended glass globes. Seating at the actual sunken bar inspires in-depth conversation, while a 16-foot sofa with bolsters beckons guests to linger over boutique wines, supercall sips and garden-fresh cocktails.
Step into The Quill Room and discover an immersive, private living room evoking a bygone era. Detailed with golden hues, rich textures, a fully built-in bar, and hand-crafted vintage furnishings, our second floor lounge offers both incredible views and a sophisticated environment for sipping a classic spritz, listening to live music, and sharing French-inspired bites.
