Kelly Wearstler Adds Another Jewel to the Austin Proper’s Crown

“Austin Proper Hotel has unveiled its latest hospitality venture: The Quill Room, an enchanting cocktail lounge fashioned by renowned designer Kelly Wearstler, who conceived the entire property from tip to toe. This exclusive space joins the hotel’s culinary repertoire including the Mediterranean-inspired The Peacock, vintage cocktail bar Goldie’s, and rooftop gem La Piscina. The Quill Room is a tapestry of old-world charm and contemporary elegance, tucked away on the second floor for hotel guests and residents. It’s the kind of place made for a late-night rendezvous, against a backdrop of live music and French-inspired menu.” 

“The aesthetics are as vibey as the ambiance. At its heart is a bar, a fusion of wood and metal with neon touches by a local Austin artist, greeting guests along with a bartender who might be shaking up a Bordeaux Sour or perhaps an ice-cold number from the martini menu. Furnishings from the ‘60s to the ‘90s, sourced from across Europe and the local renowned Round Top Antiques Market, add an eclectic charm that feels like one of Paris’s turn-of-the-century salons was kissed with a Texas touch.” –Nate Storey, SURFACE
